Acer Swift 7 SF713-51 Notebook Review

 

Slim, Slimmer, Acer Swift 7! The trend towards slimmer devices keeps going on. Acer has now created the slimmest notebook in the world: less than 10 mm (~0.4 in) thick. We will check to see how well the Kaby Lake dual-core SoC works in our review.

9.98 mm is quite thin, stylish design with nice colors, relatively light, good battery life, decent system performance, large touchpad, IPS display with stable viewing angles, quite when idle, adapter for USB 3.1 Type C to USB 3.0

only 2 USB 3.1 Type-C ports, very easy to smudge, no backlit keyboard

At 9.98 mm thick (~0.4 in), the Acer Swift 7 is the slimmest model of the world. The black-gold color scheme looks nice and the case feels great. The super-flat construction is easy-to-handle. Overall, Acer has produced a good laptop. The workmanship...

Acer Swift 7 review

 

The Acer Swift 7 is ridiculously thin, yet somehow crams in huge battery life.

Acer Swift 7 Review

 

These days, it's not enough for a laptop to be superslim; it also has to be stylish and still deliver enough power to get the job done. The $1,099 Acer Swift 7 answers the call on most fronts. At a mere 0.39 inches thick, it's one of the thinnest...

Acer Swift 7 Review and Ratings

 

Acer's thinner-than-thin laptop looks great and feels elegant, but is no barn-burner performance-wise for anything more demanding than office apps.

Remarkably thin and light ; Shallow but snappy keyboard ; Two USB-C ports with USB-A and HDMI adapters included

Merely adequate performance ; Keyboard isn't backlit ; No memory card slot or Thunderbolt 3

After fully recharging the laptop, we set up the machine in power-save mode (as opposed to balanced or high-performance mode) and make a few other battery-conserving tweaks in preparation for our unplugged video rundown test. In this test, we loop a...

Acer Swift 7 ultraportable notebook review

 

Acer's 13 inch laptop is super-slim, super-lightweight, and super-quiet, thanks to a fanless design. It's a stylish laptop with one of the best keyboards of any Acer laptop I've tested, and it also features a wide, comfortable touchpad below the keys.

The Acer Swift 7 is a remarkably thin laptop. It’s very light-weight. And it has a fanless design for silent operation. It has an excellent keyboard and touchpad. And the bright display looks great from any angle. While it doesn’t have the fastest CPU...

Acer’s Swift 7 is a sleek ultrabook with a meager processor

 

Like a barebones PC chassis, the Swift 7 has potential, but lacks a few integral pieces — like a backlit keyboard, for instance

Acer’s Swift 7 is made up of many “good” parts, a few that come short and two that stand out: its design and battery life. Perhaps if it was below the $1,000 price point it would be an easy recommendation for its good aesthetics, battery life, solid...

Hands-on with the Acer Swift 7, the latest contender for world’s thinnest notebook

 

The Acer Swift 7 is the world's first notebook to measure in at less than a centimeter thick. Combine that with a classy gold finish and sleek black lid, and Acer has created quite a winsome design that will turn quite a few heads.

Acer might not be a company best known for its design greats. We've seen laptops shaped like the Starship Enterprise with the trackpad in the wrong place,
