Acer launches thinnest laptop with 4G, plus new convertible, Chromebook

Acer also revealed availability for the Switch 7 Black Edition and Predator Orion 9000 Series, which were both unveiled at IFA a year ago. Availability is set for March in North America, starting at $1,699; customers in EMEA will see it in April at prices starting at €1,699. The Nitro 5 (AN515-42) starts at $799 (Rs 50,500 approximately) and ships in May 2018.

Among all the new offerings, the new Acer Swift 7 is perhaps the most interesting one.

Flight of the Conchords to return with one-hour special
Beloved off-beat Kiwi comic duo, Flight of the Conchords , are planning to shoot an hour-long special at some point in 2018. He also shared an update on the planned American series adaptation of What We Do In The Shadows with Taika Waititi .

The IPS display comes in the form of a 14-inch Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen that boasts narrow bezels and a full HD resolution. The current generation Swift 7 measures at 13.3mm, which is already incredibly thin for a 13.3-inch device, so that further reduction in thickness sure is impressive. The Windows 10 PC runs on Intel 7th gen Core i7 processor along with 8GB LPDDR3 RAM and has a 14-inch Full-HD (1080x1920 pixel) IPS display. Acer wraps up this hardware in an aluminum unibody chassis. It has fingerprint reader which allows password-free and more secure sign-in through Windows Hello. Other than a slightly sloppy trackpad - but who's not using an additional mouse for gaming? - and unremarkable battery life it's a solid budget gaming laptop, for people who don't want to pay Razer Blade money for something really fancy (but still want to play some games on the move). Acer says Spin 3's battery can last for up to 12 hours on a single charge. For gamers, the Taiwanese brand showcased the Predator Orion 9000 as well as an updated Nitro 5 15-inch gaming notebook in Las Vegas. A15.6-inch 1080p panel compliments RAM and SSD storage which are configurable up to 32GB and 512GB. The WASD keys can be outlined with brighter backlighting and CPU and GPU temps can be monitored with NitroSense software though, so there's that (heh).

In addition to three new notebook models, Acer at the CES unveiled the all-new Chromebook 11. The Dell XPS 13 and the Lenovo Yoga 920 sport eight-generation Core i7 chips, and up to 16GB RAM storage cost around the same, but that's just a small trade-off for owning the thinnest laptop in the world. The laptop packs a battery that is rated for 10 hours of backup. There are two USB-C ports - obviously no full-size ports, as there's simply not the space - alongside a 3.5mm headphones jack, the latter fitted into the spine to go nearly unnoticed.
