Acer's new Swift line has four models in tow; the Swift 1, Swift 3, Swift 5, and Swift 7 - the higher the number, the more premium the product. Acer's flagship Swift 7 model is just 9.98mm and only 1.1kg (2.48lbs), featuring a 13.3-inch 1920x1080 IPS-based display that is found in a beautiful all-aluminum unibody and thin bezel.
