Acer today launches the world's thinnest laptop1, the new Swift 7 (SF714-51T). At just 8.98 mm thin, the new Swift 7 is an always-connected PC running Windows 10 that's designed for mobility, with an ultraportable design packing a powerful Intel® Core™ i7 processor, all-day battery life and a personal, trusted 4G LTE connection.

"We're extremely proud to make the world's thinnest laptop even thinner with the new Swift 7," said Jerry Kao, President of IT Products Business of Acer Inc. "Building on the engineering breakthroughs from the previous generation, the new Swift 7 steps up the game with an even slimmer chassis, powerful performance and always-on 4G LTE connectivity for professionals on the go."

"The next PC anyone buys should be a great PC – powerful to feed the newest, richest experiences all day long," said Chris Walker, Vice President of Intel Corp. "Acer's Swift 7 delivers on the performance expectation then ups the ante with built-in 4G LTE in an ultra-thin, stunning design. It's the perfect PC for those who have things to do and create anywhere, at any time."

"Acer's new Swift 7 is a great Windows 10 PC for on-the-go professionals or consumers who crave portability and connectivity," said Peter Han, Vice President, Partner Devices and Solutions, Microsoft Corp. "The Swift 7 is thin, light, and perfect for customers to stay connected on the go."

Always-Connected

The Acer Swift 7's unmatched slim design is only the beginning of the new features on offer. Blazing-fast, built-in Intel XMM 4G LTE connectivity keeps users productive and always-connected, especially useful for professionals who wish to eliminate tedious wireless connection problems on the road so they can stay focused on the task at hand. In addition to a Nano SIM card slot, the Swift 7 features eSIM technology, allowing download and activation of eSIM profiles. The Swift 7 ships with a Transatel profile provisioned with up to 1 GB2 of free data valid for one month in 48 countries3 to help users get started immediately, while additional data plans can be easily purchased as needed through the Mobile Plans application while travelling around the world. 802.11ac wireless with 2x2 MIMO provides reliable and fast connections to the office or home network.

Both Brawn and Beauty

Powered by a 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, the Swift 7 provides incredible performance, a seamless Windows 10 experience and up to 10 hours4 of battery life. 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage offers plenty of room to keep important files at the user's fingertips, while 8 GB of LPDDR3 memory keeps multitasking smooth and responsive. A fingerprint reader allows password-free and more secure sign-in through Windows Hello.

The Swift 7's unibody aluminum chassis is pleasing to the eye and gentle to touch, perfect for modern professionals seeking a sophisticated look. Its new high-resolution display has been upgraded to 14-inches, and sports a Full HD IPS5 display, Acer Color Intelligence™ for lifelike clarity at every angle, as well as a Corning® Gorilla® Glass NBT™ touchscreen and touchpad. Typing has never been easier thanks to the Swift 7's backlit keyboard, which is handy in low-light conditions such as long-haul international flights or train journeys.
