The Acer Swift 7 is a clear sign that in the world of technology is never enough. If many were impressed with the HP Spectre with this new printing equipment is renewed. The struggle to make the thinnest, most powerful and lightest laptop ever. When you look at the Acer 7 Swift differs from a tablet just by counting a keyboard. It is so slim, compact and lightweight that the similarities to an iPad Pro with keyboard are many.
The design of the laptop is beautiful. At its back is thin, but by its design becomes thinner still when you see the front with just 0.39 inches thick. For purposes of understanding what we talked about, the latest Apple MacBook has a thickness of 0.59 inches not amazing? At the level of specifications, the Acer Swift 7 is very similar to the MacBook 12 - as with its price. Being so thin and light makes it much easier to carry it in the bag, so much so that at times it seems to have stayed at home thanks to its scarce 1,130 kilograms.
Extreme design and portability require sacrifices. The Acer Swift 7 is nice, but it falls short with some things. As expected, the right side has two USB-C 3.1 and a connector for 3.5mm headphones. On the left side there is nothing, that simple. For those who think that a connector is missing for the load, it is necessary to remember the USB-C port for this. The problem with these configurations is that you have to know how to deal with these ports. The use of adapters is imperative, at least until the use of USB-C is standardized.
ACER SWIFT 7 FEATURES
The Acer Swift 7 has everything it takes to do a good job. It has a 13.3-inch screen, although it is not tactile. To many who are not tactile can annoy them, but the difference is not important in practical terms.

The price of the laptop is 1,099 US dollars, which at the current exchange equals about 1,022 euros.
For its price and features, you can not demand much. It is designed for those who need portability and want something attractive. To forget the heavy work with this equipment, unless it is eventually edited one another video or photograph. For everyday use is perfect, even if you work with innumerable open windows and is required with a demanding application, the Acer Swift 7 holds up well.
The battery, according to the manufacturer, lasts about 9 hours. However, in practice it stays between 7 and 8 hours depending on the use. The only drawback to using the first few times the Acer Swift 7 is on the trackpad. Its location is uncomfortable, although for its size could not do much more. The position of the palm of the hands usually moves the cursor in the middle of the writing uncomfortably, so it will be difficult to get used to the change. The easiest way to get rid of the problem is to disable the trackpad ... but that means buying a wireless mouse or abusing its disable.
One of the things you like most about the notebook is the one that costs $ 200 less than a MacBook. It has the same aesthetic and portable advantages as this one. The Acer Swift 7 is not necessarily a replacement for the Apple alternative, but a more than recommended option for those who need to do office work and do not want to deal with overweight.
