Acer refreshes its Swift, Nitro, Spin and Chromebook ranges

“The Switch 7 Black Edition showcases Acer’s innovation and capabilities that push the boundaries of computing.”

The announcement of the upgraded Swift 7 Ultrabook comes in time as CES 2018, a world gathering for businesses of consumer technologies.

The Acer Swift 7 will be available in the United Kingdom from April 2018, with prices starting at £1,599.

Acer's new laptop was unveiled at this week's CES 2018 tech show in Las Vegas, and is one of the company's highlights for the event.

Police investigate disappearance of journalist last seen in Houston
The AggieYell.com reporter's roommate told KPRC-TV that she last heard from her on Sunday. "I am buying an iPad", it read. Monday morning, Houston Police told NBC News that Roland had been found, saying, "She appears unharmed".

Acer's laptop felt very light in our hands, but at 2.5 pounds, it's not the lightest 14-inch laptop on the market.

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. Out of the trio, Swift 7 (2018) model is being claimed as the "new" world's thinnest laptop around. Surprisingly, Acer has managed to include support for integrated 4G LTE connectivity despite the reduced size which could be enough to lure in customers. Connectivity options include USB Type-C and HDMI 2.0 ports, and 802.11ac WiFi with 2x2 MIMO support. The Swift 7 flaunts a stylish unibody aluminum chassis.

Below, I'll outline each laptop and give you an idea of what to expect, including the laptops' United Kingdom release date, price and specifications. Acer's Swift 7 announcement is reminiscent of its predecessor which was accompanied by the same tagline.

Monster Hunter World Is Getting Another Beta Before Launch
Monster Hunter World is out on January 26th for the PS4 and Xbox One while the PC version is aiming for a release in Autumn 2018. What happens after the launch? There's a major title update planned for spring 2018, which will add the monster Deviljho as well.

The Acer Spin 3 laptop is also a new device destined to offer buyers "all-day productivity and entertainment". It is backed by up to 32GB of RAM, and coupled up to 512GB SATA SSD. The Windows 10-based notebook is powered by seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor - coupled with 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 256GB PCIe SSD storage. It will become available in North America in March with prices starting at US$1,699, and in EMEA in April with prices starting at €1,699. The new Acer Chromebook 11 comes in two models, namely CB311-8H and CB311-8HT, both featuring an 11.6-inch display with 1366×768 pixels resolution. Unlike other connected Windows devices we have seen recently, the Swift 7 is opting for an Intel XMM Modem solution instead of Qualcomm's offerings.

Acer has also updated the Spin 3 which is getting eight-generation Intel Core processors (unlike the Sift 7).

It's a good looking laptop going with a simplistic design. The press release points to "latest AMD Ryzen mobile processors" so that mobile designation likely points to the Ryzen 5 2500U or Ryzen 7 2700U from the current product lineup, but we'll let you know when we have confirmation from Acer.
