Acer Swift 7 first look

There are lots of laptops that are considered razor-thin, but there’s one that’s a little more specific: The Acer Swift 7 is considered to be smartphone-thin, having a profile that’s just below a centimeter at 9.98mm. Leanest notebook ever? Definitely.

Even though the space is limited, Acer managed to squeeze in as much power as possible to provide competitive notebook performance. One standout spec is the inclusion of Intel’s new seventh-generation Kaby Lake processor, which is a marked improvement over the chips laptops had last year. Together with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, there’s no noticeable compromise compared to much thicker mobile computers.

The Swift 7 is such a pleasant product to behold, especially when compared to Acer’s other recently unveiled notebook, the Predator 21 X. That’s another head-turner with its 21-inch curved display and monstrous specs. It’s safe to say Acer pulled off a “David and Goliath” showing at IFA 2016.

You can find our first look video with the Acer Swift 7 above, and if you’re in the mood for something even more out of this world, check out our equally enjoyable Predator 21 X first look.

This is our first look at the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

Way back when we first started making videos on this channel, the Dell XPS line is one whose evolution we’ve been tracking — a favorite because of its slim design and near borderless display. We’ve seen many tweaks over the years, including a two-in-one variant that offered more flexibility.

The problem is it didn’t always feel like it offered more. Well here at Computex, Dell might just have fixed this problem.

Three years in the making, Lenovo’s upcoming ThinkPad X1 computer is the world’s first with a flexible display. The device is still nameless, but the company believes “it will replace the laptop.”

Recently we were given some hands-on time with the prototype and suffice to say, our techie bones were tickled pink.
