How light do you need your laptop to be, and how much are you willing to sacrifice to reduce weight? Acer has decided to test where the answers to those questions like with its new Swift 7, a 14-inch laptop that weighs just 890g and is only 9.95mm thick. Yes, that's thinner and lighter than some magazines. It's a far cry from the 4kg+ laptops that were normal just a few years ago, and will even stand out compared to today's 1-2kg ultrabooks. In addition to alleviating back pain, it's also quite a style statement.
The Acer Swift 7 SF714-52T weighs only 890g which feels impossibly light. Even so, it has a 14-inch full-HD screen and a relatively sturdy body. Acer says it has used metal alloys that are tough yet light. This is a fanless laptop using a dual-core 'Amber Lake' Core i7-8500Y so don't expect it to do much heavy lifting. Basic tasks such as Web surfing and office productivity should be fine, but this laptop will struggle with creative programmes. The main issue for most people will be the keyboard layout, which is cramped and missing the top Fn row. You get two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a 3.5mm audio socket, but that's all there is in terms of physical connectivity. If you can live with the compromises this could be a great road warrior's laptop, but most people will not want to take things so far.
