Acer Swift 7 claims title of world’s thinnest laptop – All Hands on Tech at CES 2019

    It’s CES 2019 and that means a bonanza for new laptop announcements. Each one has something just a little bit different to stand out from the pack. For the Acer Swift 7, it’s claiming to be the world’s thinnest laptop.

    The Acer Swift 7 is an Ultrabook that’s a hair under 10 mm thick. It’s targeted at professionals that really value portability, a long battery life, and staying connected.

    There’s a physical nano SIM slot and support for eSIM technology.

    For a small package, it really packs a punch. There’s an Intel Core i7 processor, seventh-generation. It’s 256 GB of solid state disk storage and 8 GB of memory. Acer says the battery will last for up to 10 hours.

    The screen is a full HD, IPS display, and it’s made from Corning Gorilla Glass. It’s also a touch screen. The keyboard is also backlit, so you can use it even in a dim setting.

    The Acer Swift 7 will be available in North America in March with a starting price of $1,699 USD. I guess the world’s thinnest laptop requires a fatter wallet.
