Acer announces Swift 7 SF714-52T , an exceptionally thin and light notebook in a new design that gives the display maximum freedom. Already won the CES 2019 Innovation Award. Ultra-thin bezels make the screen virtually frameless and give the 14-inch Swift 7 an impressive 92 percent display-to-body ratio. It runs on Windows 10 and is surprisingly lightweight at just 890g. For professionals who spend a lot of time on the road and need to take their notebook with them, the light weight is perfect. The Swift 7 can easily slip into a briefcase or small bag and feels almost weightless.
“The Acer Swift 7 strikes a balance between art and technology while taking ultraportable PC development to the next level,” notes Jerry Kao, head of consumer notebooks and IT products at Acer Inc. – The screen, which takes up 92% of the case area, will allow Acer customers to be more productive. Small, thin and light, you can carry it with you all day, even on the road, and take it everywhere you go.
“We developed the latest eighth-generation Intel®Core™ processors to create a complete platform with performance that delivers a rich notebook experience and energy efficiency to extend battery life. And all this without using a fan,” adds Chris Walker, vice president of Client Mobile Platforms at Intel. – We’re excited to work with Acer to create the innovations found in the new Swift 7.
Unbelievable 92% screen to chassis size ratio
Engineering has made it possible to equip the Swift 7 with the latest technology while significantly reducing the size of the body compared to the previous model. A bezel measuring just 2.57 mm2 gives you a notebook with a width and depth that are as narrow as 317.9 x 191.5 mm 12.51 x 7.53 in . Like its predecessors, the Swift 7 SF714-52T is still remarkably thin and light, measuring 9.95 mm 0.39″ thin and 890 g 1.96 lbs .
Swift 7’s rugged body is made of magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys. These materials are two to four times stronger than standard aluminum alloys, but 20-35% lighter. This reduced the weight to 890g 1.96 lbs . In addition, Acer has applied micro-arc processing to the chassis to create a ceramic coating effect.

Glass touchpad with Corning Gorilla Glass coating gives quick, responsive touch for scrolling and navigation. It features a built-in key, multi-touch gesture support and provides good physical response. Power button acts as a fingerprint reader, so notebook owners can turn it on with Windows Hello, a secure way to sign in without a password.
