With a new premium chassis, the 14-inch Acer Swift 7 has ultra-narrow 2.57mm bezels that give this high screen-to-body ratio.

The Acer Swift 7 is even thinner and lighter than before, with a 92% screen-to-body ratio, the company has announced at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.

“The Acer Swift 7 strikes a balance between art and technology, and in doing so pushes ultra-portable PC design to new territories. With a striking screen-to-body ratio of an incredible 92 percent, Acer customers can stay more productive with a compact, thinner and lighter notebook that feels ‘barely there’ while carrying it around through the day and during business travel.”

Jerry Hou, General Manager, Consumer Notebooks, IT Products Business, Acer Inc.

With a new premium chassis, the 14-inch Acer Swift 7 has ultra-narrow 2.57mm bezels that give this high screen-to-body ratio. In addition, the new laptop weighs in at only 890 grams (1.96 lbs), making it a great choice for carrying around in a briefcase or backpack.

Under 1 cm thin (0.39 inches), the Swift 7 is made to be light and durable with its magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloy construction. The entire laptop is coated with a micro-arc oxidation finish for an elegant, ceramic-like finish.
