  • Acer stakes out premium business laptop turf with Swift 7, hits budget buyers with Chromebook 11 at $249

The Chromebook 11 looks fantastic.

The new Swift 7 has slimmer bezels around the screen, compared to the predecessor.

The new 2018 Acer Swift 7 will be first released in North America this coming March before making its way to EMEA regions in April. The Acer Spin 3 also arrives with a 14-inch Full HD IPS display and two front-facing speakers equipped with the company's TrueHarmony technology. The Swift 7 will feature a built-in eSIM for a fast and easy subscription process to your carrier of choice. While Acer states it will feature a 7th Generation Core processor, we don't yet know if this is referring to a 3.5W processor like the i7-7Y75, or a higher power 15W processor such as the i7-7500U. It has improved connectivity over the last model, though, with a nano SIM card slot and support for 4G data speeds. 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. "Acer says the new model will be only 0.7" thick (18.2 mm) and will provide up to 10 hours of battery life. For this comparison, Acer has considered the clamshell laptop designs in the market with macOS and Windows.

The Spin 3 is a versatile notebook powered by an eighth-generation Intel Core processor. It is fitted with a 14-inch full HD IPS 5 display. Other than a slightly sloppy trackpad - but who's not using an additional mouse for gaming? - and unremarkable battery life it's a solid budget gaming laptop, for people who don't want to pay Razer Blade money for something really fancy (but still want to play some games on the move).

Acer has also launched the updated versions of Nitro 5 and Spin 3. The laptop offers 8GB LPDDR3 primary memory and 256GB of PCIe SSD storage space. The company has bundled a NitroSense software that enables monitoring of GPU and CPU in a real time.

The Acer Chromebook 11 has an 11.6-inch display with the resolution of 1366x768 pixels. With his technical knowledge and passion for testing, Avram programmed several of LAPTOP's real-world benchmarks, including the LAPTOP Battery Test. Interestingly, the battery charges via either of the two available USB Type-C ports. Connectivity options include USB Type-C and HDMI 2.0 ports, and 802.11ac WiFi with 2x2 MIMO support.
