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 (SF713-51-M90J)

 

The Acer Swift 7 currently ranks as the world's thinnest laptop, but to carry a laptop this slim you'll need to make quite a few feature sacrifices.

0.39-inch thin. All-day battery life. Bright and accurate display. Two USB-C ports. Quiet operation.

Benchmark performance is lower than that of rivals. Shallow key travel. No keyboard backlight. Lacks Thunderbolt 3 support.

The Acer Swift 7 takes its place as the current thinnest Windows laptop on the market. While it has impressive battery life and a beautiful screen, you have to make compromises to get them that you don't with rivals like the HP Spectre 13 and the New...

Acer Swift 7 review

 

The Acer Swift 7 jumps into the lead position in the latest PC arms race towards ever-thinner systems, by slipping in under the magic 10 mm mark.

This is an insanely thin 13-inch laptop, in an eye-catching gray-and-gold design with an extra-wide touchpad. It has one of Intel's newest CPUs.

The tiny keyboard keys don't feel especially premium, and this isn't the fastest slim 13-inch in the bunch. The 1,920x1,080-pixel screen doesn't support touch, and the only ports are USB-C.

It's hard to argue with a 13-inch laptop under 10mm thick. The Acer Swift 7 wins on that front, but other laptops offer more power and features while adding just a few millimeters of bulk.

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 Swift 7 review

 

Thin and light, but somewhat airy

Beautiful design ; Excellent feel ; Two USB-C ports

Middling battery life ; No keyboard backlight

The Acer Swift 7 is one of the most gorgeous laptops of the year already, but it cuts a few too many corners as a more affordable foil to the 12-inch MacBook.
