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.

Acer Predator Orion 5000 First Look
Smaller but powerful
If the name sounds familiar, you’re probably thinking about the gigantic Orion 9000 from IFA last year. The Orion 5000 is a smaller model, but don’t think for a second that it’s any less powerful.
It has Intel’s latest Core i7 processor as well as Optane memory, which can make load times even faster. You can configure it with up to two GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards that run at the same time, and IceTunnel 2.0 technology makes cooling smarter.
