Acer Swift 7 with Compact Design and Incredible Screen-to-body Ratio

Acer announced the incredibly thin and light Swift 7 (SF714-52T) with a new premium chassis that
liberates the display. Honoree of a CES 2019 Innovation Award, its ultra-narrow bezels make it
virtually borderless, giving the 14-inch Swift 7 an impressive 92 percent screen-to-body ratio.
Powered by Windows 10, it’s feather-light too, meaning traveling professionals who carry a
notebook through the day will rejoice at its weight of just 890 grams — giving the Swift 7 an almost
weightless feel when carrying it in a briefcase or small bag.




“The Acer Swift 7 strikes a balance between art and technology, and in doing so pushes ultra- portable PC design to new territories” said Jerry Hou, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “With a striking screen-to-body ratio of an incredible 92 percent, Acer customers can stay more productive with a compact, thinner and lighter notebook that feels ‘barely there’ while carrying it around through the day and during business travel.”
“We designed the latest 8 th Gen Intel Core processors to deliver a complete platform with the performance to enable rich user experiences and the power efficiency to extend battery life, all in a fanless design” said Chris Walker, Vice President of Client Computing at Intel. “It is exciting to collaborate with Acer on the innovation displayed on the new Acer Swift 7.”
Ultra-Compact Design Results in Stunning 92% Screen-to-Body Ratio
Thanks to incredible design and engineering advances, the redesigned Swift 7 fits the latest tech
into a chassis that is significantly smaller than its predecessor. It has a four-side narrow bezel
design with bezels measuring just 2.57 mm 2 , dramatically reducing the width and depth of the
notebook to just 317.9 mm W x 191.5 mm D (12.51 W x 7.53 D inches) for an immersive, almost
full screen display. Like its predecessors, the Swift 7 (SF714-52T) remains incredibly thin and light,
measuring under 1 cm thin at 9.95 mm (0.39 inches) and weighing less than 1 kg at just 890
grams (1.96 pounds).

The Swift 7 is incredibly thin and lightweight, yet durable. Designed for portability, it’s made with
magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys. These materials are two to four times
stronger than standard aluminum alloys at the same thickness, yet are up to 20 to 35 percent
lighter to keep the laptop under 1 kg. In addition, Acer applied a micro-arc oxidation finish to
create a surface with an elegant, ceramic-like material.
The 14-inch Full HD 1920x1080 touch display with IPS 3 technology allows smooth touch
interactions and presents vibrant and crystal-clear images. Featuring a 100% sRGB/72% NTSC
color gamut and 300 nits of brightness, the Swift 7 brings immersive experiences through its
advanced display. Plus, it’s extra durable thanks to a layer of Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass 6.

Performance with All-Day Battery Life
The Swift 7 is powered by the latest 8th Gen Intel ® Core ™ i7-8500Y processor to deliver top-notch
performance for web browsing, productivity with presentations and spreadsheets, and even using
compute intensive creator tools while enabling a fanless design. With up to 512GB of fast PCIe
SSD storage, a large amount of files can be stored and quickly accessed, and with up to 16GB of
LPDDR3 RAM, customers can multitask smoothly. And with 10 hours 1 of battery life, customers
can use their Swift 7 well into the evening.

Connectivity via Thunderbolt 3 and Advanced WiFi
Customers can accomplish more using the two USB Type-C ports supporting Thunderbolt™ 3 for
high bandwidth speeds up to 40 Gbps while also delivering system power and connecting to any
display, as well as USB 3.1 Gen 2. The DisplayPort 1.2 provides fast data transfers at up to 10
Gbps and supports high resolution external displays and speedy charging of external devices.
Staying connected with the Acer Swift 7 is reliable and super-fast with Intel Wireless-AC delivering
Wi-Fi 5 capable of Gigabit speed and featuring 2x2 MU-MIMO technology. Peripherals can also be
connected via Bluetooth 5.0, while the combo headphone and speaker jack ensures clear and
crisp audio.

Intuitive Features for an Exceptional Experience
The Swift 7’s design delivers an exceptional experience for jet-setting professionals. The chiclet
keyboard has well-spaced keys allowing users to type up documents with minimal mistakes. The
keyboard also provides 1.1 mm of travel distance and responsive feedback. In addition, the backlit
keyboard makes typing comfortable in low-light conditions.
The Corning Gorilla Glass touchpad is precise and responsive while scrolling and navigating. The
glass touchpad also has an integrated click button, support for multi-touch gestures and a
responsive physical click. Plus, the power button doubles as a fingerprint reader so customers can
simultaneously turn on the device while using a more secure login through password-free Windows Hello.

The new Swift 7 features a push-to-open camera for webchats and video recording that can be
kept closed to prevent unintended camera usage and to protect privacy. The camera has a 55-
degree angle of view, and features high-dynamic-range (HDR) to deliver images in wider viewing
angles to accommodate groups.Product pricing and availability are yet to be announced. Stay tuned for more details coming soon
