Acer Swift 7


Acer Swift 7 review: Although impressively slim, it's not the most portable laptop around and underperforms compared with some rivals.

Thinnest laptop around ; Powerful display ; Surprisingly strong usability ; 4G SIM support

Limited connectivity ; Restrictive performance ; Not quite as 'compact' as rivals

Although very slim and nice-looking, the Acer Swift 7 isn’t the most portable laptop around, while also underperforming compared with rivals.

Acer Swift 7 review: The smartphone-thin laptop is here


When you think the laptop has got about as slim as it can get, a company pushes the envelope. Which is exactly what Acer has done with the new Swift 7

Great build quality ; It’s very slim

Weird non-clicky trackpad ; Very expensive ; Older and less powerful CPU ; Low screen resolution for the price

The Swift 7 is thin, really thin. But it’s also expensive, underpowered and a bit annoying in places.

Acer Swift 7 review: Has Acer finally cracked high-end laptop design?


Ask the average person about the themes of 2016 and you'll hear about celebrity deaths and far-right politics spreading across the western world quicker than a cute puppy video. The Acer Swift 7 is one of the thinnest laptops in the world, and it costs...

Firm-feeling build, good screen contrast, a large trackpad and a lower price than some

Limited connections, processor prioritises efficiency over performance, no backlight keyboard

The Acer Swift 7 is one of the thinnest laptops in the world, and it costs a bit less than some in this class. Add a good trackpad, a decent screen and a solid-if-shallow keyboard and you have a great ultra-portable machine for work and the sorts of...

Acer Swift 7 review


The world's thinnest laptop comes at too steep a price

Excellent design ; Built-in LTE option ; Decent battery life

Touchpad doesn’t click ; Awfully weak performance for price ; Poor webcam placement ; Lacking audio

Between a touchpad that doesn’t click and its aging, fanless processor, the Acer Swift 7 is an absolutely gorgeous Ultrabook – the ‘world’s thinnest,’ in fact – that we simply can’t recommend in a sea of laptops that are far more powerful and not much...

Acer Swift 7 review: Ultra-portable and ultra-thin


It might not be the fastest machine on the market, but this elegant, ultra-thin laptop is great value

Ultra-thin ; Stunning design ; Large trackpad

Sluggish performance ; No backlit keyboard

Add in a fantastic trackpad, attractive design and above-average battery life, and it’s an excellent, affordable alternative to the raft of £1,000-plus machines that seem to be increasingly the norm these days.

Acer Swift 7 review: world's thinnest laptop


Acer has made an ultra-thin laptop that's less than a centimetre thick yet squeezed in a Core m7 processor. It's a lot like the HP Spectre but with a price that's slightly easier to swallow. Here's our Acer Swift 7 review.

Whether the Acer Swift 7 is the right laptop for you depends on how much you care about its 10mm thickness. If you don’t mind adding a millimetre or five, you can get laptops with more power and better connectivity for the same price. Hardcore users...

Acer Swift 7 review


The Acer Swift 7 jumps into the lead position in the latest PC arms race towards ever-thinner systems, by slipping in under the magic 10 mm mark.

This is an insanely thin 13-inch laptop, in an eye-catching gray-and-gold design with an extra-wide touchpad. It has one of Intel's newest CPUs.

The tiny keyboard keys don't feel especially premium, and this isn't the fastest slim 13-inch in the bunch. The 1,920x1,080-pixel screen doesn't support touch, and the only ports are USB-C.

It's hard to argue with a 13-inch laptop under 10mm thick. The Acer Swift 7 wins on that front, but other laptops offer more power and features while adding just a few millimeters of bulk.

Acer Swift 7 review


A barely-there chassis that's let down by barely-there performance

One of the thinnest ultrabooks on the market; Beautiful design, Generous trackpad

Poor performance from the Y series i5; No keyboard backlighting; Lack of connectivity options; Only one spec configuration

The Swift 7 is beautiful looking machine with one of thinnest frames on the market, but it’s let down by a low performance CPU and too many cut corners. A solid ultrabook for those that want something thin, but otherwise there’s very little it offers...

Acer Swift 7


Designed with portability and power in mind, the Acer Swift 7 is a handy notebook indeed.

Thin and lightweight construction; Good battery life; Fast multitasking

Dependent on dongles at the moment; Colours not for everyone

Getting your hands on the Swift 7 should cost you no less than R24 999, which is what Acer recommended the price at when it debuted at IFA late last year . That said, some online retailers are listing it at just under the R20k mark ( Takealot ), which...

Acer's ultra-light Swift 7 is a formidable foe to Apple's MacBook


This laptop is for Windows 10 fans.

As light as a feather ; Enough processing power for average users ; Sharp display

USB-C is annoying right now ; Trackpad placement is also annoying

For someone who wants portability over maximum performance, the Acer Swift 7 will get the job done.
