World's Thinnest Laptop Unveiled

Among a sea of laptops making their debut at CES 2018, Acer is standing out from the crowd with what it says is the world's thinnest.

Acer revealed the nearly paper thin laptop at the Consumer Electronic Showcase (CES) in Las Vegas.

Acer has announced a slew of new products, including the Swift 7 ultrabook, Nitro 5 gaming laptop, Spin 3 convertible notebook, and the Chromebook 11.

Of the three new models, the one that sticks out most is the Swift 7.

This all-new laptop has just been unveiled ahead of this week's major technology show and it claims to be the world's thinnest portable PC.

Acer Swift 7, Nitro 5, Spin 3, and Chromebook 11 have been announced at the CES 2018 tech trade show. Packed inside its svelte frame, the Swift 7 includes a seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage. The notebook is specially designed for mobility, the company claims to offer 10 hours of battery life and 4G LTE connectivity via Nano-SIM card.

The Acer "Swift 7" will be available in North America in March with prices starting at $1,699 and in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in April with prices starting at 1,699 euros.

As far as specifications are concerned, the Swift 7 spots a 14-inch Full HD IPS touch display with the resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, which is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass. Acer has also shrunk down the display from a 15.6-inch panel to a 14-inch 1080p display for a smaller overall form factor, although true to the "Spin" name, it still rotates around to convert into a tablet. The convertible laptop goes on sale in February with starting prices of $599 (or approx Rs 37,995). EMEA regions can expect the device to launch later in January starting at €649.

The Nitro 5 certainly isn't the best or fastest gaming laptop on the market, but at a starting price point of $799, it looks like a pretty good option for someone just looking to dip their toe in the PC gaming waters that wants to try out the latest indie platformer on Stream or try out competitive titles like Rocket League, PUBG, Overwatch, or Dota 2. The laptop also supports up to 32GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The Nitro 5 launches in April.
