Acer is kicking off 2018 by unveiling one of the thinnest laptops ever at CES 2018. The ultra-skinny Swift 7 (SF714-51) looks supremely sleek and futuristic at only 8.98mm thick.
Acer claims it's the world's thinnest laptop. It'll go on sale in April with prices starting at $1,699 and £1,599. Australian pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed but the UK starting price converts to AU$2,765.
The undeniably good-looking laptop features an all-black aluminum design with a 14-inch touchscreen with narrow bezels. It also has 4G LTE connectivity; its design integrates the antenna into the unibody chassis.
The Acer Swift 7 has lots of competition thanks to the bevy of ultraportable laptops available, though having an older seventh-gen processor is a knock against it, especially at these prices. Its high price tag may dissuade those shopping on a budget, but the laptop will surely catch the eye of anyone with cash to spend who's interested in a fancy new machine.
