Oh boy. Acer threw down the gauntlet in 2016 when they snatched the crown of world’s thinnest laptop right out of HP’s hands. The original Swift 7 was a stunning 9.98mm thick, making it the first laptop to take things below 1cm. It’s been two years since then and nobody’s been able to beat Acer’s accomplishment.
Left without a contender, Acer decided to take things a step further and outdo themselves. Here’s the world’s thinnest laptop 2.0.
Acer has also unveiled its brand new Swift series of notebooks which focuses on portability. The Acer Swift 7 is their top of the line model and it’s currently the thinnest laptop at only 9.98mm while weighing just 1.1kg. This is the first laptop to go under 1cm thick. As a comparison, the already crazy thin HP Spectre 13 has a thickness of 10.4mm and it weighs 1.16kg.
