The Acer Swift lineup of Windows notebooks was introduced back in August, and now the Skylake-driven Swift 3 and the Kaby Lake-powered Swift 7 are both available for purchase.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
