The Acer Swift 7 SF714-51T is one of the first traditional notebooks with eSIM compatibility and integrated LTE.

Users can surf the net when away from a WLAN source without the need to insert any SIM card as long as the carrier supports the feature. Fortunately, a nano-SIM slot is still available for users who prefer to connect the traditional way. The ultra-skinny Swift 7 looks supremely sleek and futuristic at only 8.98 mm thick. That is pretty mind-blowing really, especially when considering it actually thinner than a number of recent and new smartphones. In comparison, the Spectre 13 and Zenbook 3 are 10.4 mm and 11.9 mm thick, respectively.

A thin profile also equates to a lightweight product and the Swift 7 is a true featherweight at around 1.2 kg. Firstly, the narrow bezels have allowed Acer to upgrade the size of the display from 13.3-inch on the outgoing model to a 14-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen on this latest redesign. The undeniably good-looking laptop features an all-black aluminum design.

Its design integrates the antenna into the unibody chassis. It might not come in handy very often, but the screen can fold back 180 degrees from the shut position. That means it is not a 2-in-1 convertible but is certainly flexible. Since Intel did not update its Y-series ultra-low-voltage processors last year, the 2nd generation Acer Swift 7 is based on the 7th Generation dual-core Core i7-7Y75 SoC featuring the Kaby Lake microarchitecture and a 4.5 W TDP. The CPU is accompanied by 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM as well as a 256 GB PCIe SSD. The 14-inch screen of the Swift 7 finds a fine balance of features, opting for a Full HD resolution rather than anything higher, which ought to aid battery life.

Bezels are smaller and the Full HD IPS display is now touch sensitive, which these days users found far more useful than when laptops first started getting touch support. The display showed good color, brightness and was also responsive. The webcam has been moved to below the screen to allow for the size jump and Acer has also added a fingerprint scanner to the left of the keyboard for Windows Hello log in. Connectivity options are limited to just two USB Type-C ports. The laptop features a backlit keyboard and 2×2 MIMO wireless-ac. When it comes to battery life, Acer rates the new Swift 7 model to work for up to 10 hours. The Acer Swift 7 might not be perfect for 2018 but it is an amazingly thin laptop that will no doubt be a great choice for those looking for a travel companion. The Acer Swift 7 SF714-51T is really suitable for people who are looking for a reasonably priced laptop with higher performance.
