The words thinner, lighter and faster are some of the known words which we usually come across when it comes to the brand name, Apple. For the past couple of years, Competitors have tried their best to match those borders created by the tech giant. So challenging that point, Acer joins the territory of being the thinnest ever Ultrabook series by the company: winning themselves the Taiwan Excellence Award for the category. This exact laptop will be showcased at the upcoming Convergence India 2017 event, Speaking of which, I got an early glimpse of the product & Here are my initial thoughts regarding the Acer Swift 7 - The Thinnest Laptop to this date.

Acer Swift 7 - Design:
The first sticking appeal when hold it would be, How thin the laptop is! It is one of the best-designed laptops I've ever seen & So will be your case, once you hold it. The Matte black aluminum body gives it a nice overall feel complementing the design of the Acer Swift 7. The combination of the gold inner surface and matter exterior coupled with the chamfered edges just exudes premium ability from every corner or angle. It joins the league of being slim around the 12-inch MacBook & HP Spectre series. It's due to the spacing between the keyboard & the screen which stands as a high point in the design department. The same lightweight appeal feels solid when it comes to content creation as you won't feel the laptop heavy when kept on your laps or knees. You don't even need to worry about any flexing issue at all; just in case you're worried.
Acer Swift 7 Processing Power:Acer Swift 7 touts to excel at its best, As processing adds up as a major point in its alley. Acer has gone ahead with the new Intel Core M series processor, which is an energy efficient chipset. Your day to day tasks which include content creation may that be photoshop, writing or editing videos on the Adobe suite would be a breeze. The same is also said well when it comes to the benchmarks; Results are quite decent for a laptop which is lightweight and something which goes toe to toe with the 12-inch Macbook & HP's Spectre series. The performance is in regards to the SSD speeds which helps in achieving better read and write speeds. The added 9hrs of battery life, support for 2×2 802.11ac WIFI with MU-MIMO is a bonus.
Whether it's the slim form factor or the thinnest design, Acer surely has challenged the status quote with the Swift 7 series ultrabook. The particular reason made it's debut in the Taiwan Excellence Awards chartering them an award for the design appeal of this ultrabook.
