Acer Swift 3 and Swift 7 now available
Two new laptops by Acer become available for purchase these days, both as parts of the Swift family that was introduced back in August. The Swift 3 is a 14-inch machine with a Skylake processor, while the smaller and lighter Acer Swift 7 has a 13.3-inch display and a Kaby Lake processor under the hood.
The Acer Swift 3 available for purchase on its maker's website carries the model number SF314-51-52W2 and a price tag of $649.99 USD. It features a full HD IPS display, 8 GB DDR4 memory, 256 GB SSD internal storage, and is powered by a Core i5 6200U processor. This machine runs Windows 10 Home and has no dedicated graphics, using the integrated HD Graphics 520 adapter.
The 13.3-inch Acer Swift 7 has 2.5 pounds and is less than 0.4 inches thick. It uses the Intel Core i5 7Y54 Kaby Lake processor, next to 8 GB RAM, and 256 GB SSD internal storage. Having an aluminum unibody design, it offers up to 9 hours of autonomy. Unfortunately, it has a non-removable battery, runs Windows 10 Home, and has no dedicated graphics adapter. It currently retails for $1,099.99 USD via Acer's web store, but is expected to hit Amazon and other retailers for $100 USD less.
