The Acer Swift 7 dives below the 10mm mark

Laptops
[MUSIC] One computer trend I can get enthusiastically on board with is the recent run of ultra thin laptops. Ones that get down to 10 millimeters or even less. The Acer Swift Seven is a new king of a very slender hill coming in just a hair thinner than it's main competition. This 13-inch Windows laptop is just 9.98 millimeters thick while the very similar HP Spectre is 10. Four millimeters, although you'd be hard pressed to really see a difference between them. The 13 inch Swift Seven is actually thinner than some of the new 12.5 inch screen laptops. The Acer N Book Three is 11.9 millimeters, even the 12 inch Macbook is 13.1 millimeters. It's far from the thinnest out there. And what about the grand daddy of thin laptops the Macbook air. Well it's a monster compare with this and wrapping 80 millimeters thick. All of these super slim Windows laptops get that way in park because what they leave out. All are locked relatively on impressive 1920 by 1080 resolution display and all lock of touch screen which allows their bodies to be thinner. The Swift 7 looks great and every time I pulled it out, people wanted to see what it was. The touch pad is extra wide which is nice, but keep in mind like most super slim laptops, the only ports you get are USBC ports. Now I can live without a touch screen or high resolution, but two things bugged me about this otherwise impressive laptop. The tiny keyboard keys didn't really have tight premium feel I'm looking for, and the new processor, a low-power CORE i5 from Intel's latest 7th generation of CORE series chips, was a bit on the poky side. Although it's certainly fast enough for everyday computing, streaming, and web surfing. [MUSIC]
