“The Switch 7 Black Edition showcases Acer’s innovation and capabilities that push the boundaries of computing.”

The devices will start hitting the market by March this year.

Acer updates its Swift 7 Ultrabook, giving it an even thinner chassis - from the previous 10 mm, to now just 8.9 mm - making it once again the thinnest laptop in the world.

After LG, Samsung and HP, Acer has now unveiled four new laptops, including "the world's thinnest" laptop. The device runs on Windows 10 operating system and offers 4605 mAh Li-ion battery, which the company claims delivers up to 12 hours of battery backup.

The Swift 7, however, has the combination of an easy-to-carry laptop and the 4G LTE connectivity, which is still now very rare in the market.

As for connectivity, there's a dual-stream 802.11ac wireless adapter built in and plenty of physical ports, including an SD card reader, three USB Type-A, one USB Type-C, plus 3.5mm headphone/mic and Ethernet ports. It has 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM to keep the multitasking responsive.

The Swift 7's unibody aluminum chassis is pleasing to the eye and gentle to touch, flawless for modern professionals seeking a sophisticated look. Acer hasn't released the full specs yet, but we do know the Spin 3 arrives in February and will start at $599.

The laptop also comes with Acer Color Intelligence, a Corning Gorilla Glass NBT touchscreen and touchpad. It would be available for sale in Europe later with a price tag of 1,699 Euros (Rs 1,29,329 approximately).

Other than the Swift 7, Acer has also announced the launch its refreshed Spin 3 (SP314-51) laptop.

Acer's casual gaming laptop, the Nitro 5 has received an iterative upgrade as well.

Acer is staking out the premium business and budget ends of the laptop market with the Swift 7, billed as the world's thinnest laptop, and Acer Chromebook 11, respectively. The Chromebook 11 models, CB311-8HT and CB311-8H, will feature an 11.6-inch display and will come with a 4GB memory and 16GB or 32GB of eMMC storage.

For Swift 7's $1,699 price, you get a 14-inch, 1080p touch screen, an Intel 7th Generation Core i7 Y Series CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and built-in 4G connectivity.

Under the hood, the Acer Swift 7 is powered by a powerful 7th Gen Intel Core i7 processor. The Nitro 5's keyboard looks great, all backlit in bright crimson and the trackpad sits off-centre, right under the spacebar. It is available with touch or non-touch display and comes with Google Play support at launch.
