Acer's Swift 7, which takes the crown as the thinnest laptop around, is now for sale. The featherweight laptop will retail for an MSRP of $1,100. It's currently available on Acer's web site and will be followed by retailers including Amazon (already selling it for a discount at $1,000), Adorama, Best Buy, Costco, Newegg and Micro Center.
The Swift 7 is just 0.39 inches thin, which makes it even tinier than the 12-inch MacBook (0.52 inches), HP EliteBook Folio (0.47 inches) and Asus ZenBook (0.47-inches). Acer claims that the Swift weights just 2.5 pounds and will offer up 9 hours of battery life.
We plan to get the Acer Swift 7 in our labs soon to see how it holds up to the competition. Stay tuned for a full review.
