The Acer Swift 7 is an extremely thin and light laptop with Intel's 7th-gen 4.5-watt processors. We got an early peek at an Intel event.

The Acer Swift 7 laptop. It's an ultra-thin PC. We got an advance look at an Intel briefing -- no final info yet!

The Swift 7 has a 7th-gen Intel Core i7 chip inside -- albeit one of the lower-performance 4.5W models formerly known as Core M.

It's barely thicker than its USB-C ports and 3.5mm headpdhone jack.

It's a thin keyboard, too. We won't pass judgement quite yet.

The Swift 7 sure does have a spacious trackpad, though. Remind you of anything?
