Acer Announces The World's Thinnest Laptop

Both the computing devices were showcased at the IFA 2017 last August.

The Swift 7 will launch for $1,699. The Nitro 5 will be available in the market for $799 ( or approx Rs 50,628).

Economy set for slowdown as govt pegs growth for FY18 at 6.5%
The government estimated that gross value added (GVA), which is GDP minus net taxes, will grow at 6.1 percent in 2017-18. Most of the economist echo the view that the economy will grow at lower levels in the range of 6.5 to 6.7 percent.

Among all the new offerings, the new Acer Swift 7 is perhaps the most interesting one. The new Acer Switch 7 offers a 14-inch display and not a 13.3-inch screen like the predecessor. It is called Swift 7 (SF714-51) and is only 8.98 mm thick.

The machine is powered by Intel Core i7 processor with built-in Intel XMM 4G LTE connectivity to keep you connected on the go. Acer wraps up this hardware in an aluminum unibody chassis. Supporting Windows Hello, the Swift 7 Black Edition features an optical-based under-glass fingerprint sensor design with POA (Power on Authentication) that allows users to power on the device and login instantly with just one touch. The bundled battery is good enough to keep the device running for nearly ten hours.

Acer has also updated the Spin 3 which is getting eight-generation Intel Core processors (unlike the Sift 7). The included display is a 15.6-inch 1080p panel, and Acer has kitted out the exterior with a textured finish and red accents. It provides up to 12 hours of of battery life, two front-facing speakers with Acer TrueHarmony technology.

The laptop offers 8GB LPDDR3 primary memory and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage space.

Acer sells a wide variety of notebooks at any given time, so it's no surprise that the company announced a number of new models at CES this year.

There is also an HDR camera to enable video conference. It is available with touch or non-touch display and comes with Google Play support at launch. Acer hasn't released a full spec sheet yet, but the laptop may be priced at $599 and will be available in February. The devices will start hitting the market by March this year. Local prices and availability are yet to be confirmed. Last year's Swift 7 launched in the U.S. at USD999 (around RM3,988) and retailed for RM4,999 here in Malaysia.
