Acer today announced the launch of the thin and light Swift 7 (SF714-52T) in Saudi Arabia. With a new premium chassis that liberates the display and ultra-narrow bezels that make it virtually borderless, the 14-inch Swift 7 has an impressive 92 percent screen-to-body ratio. Powered by Windows 10, and at just 890 grams, it is the perfect companion for the traveling professionals.
“The Swift 7 is so unbelievably light you’ll forget you’re carrying it. Its stylish looks and top-notch performance set new standards in compact design laptops”, said Joumana Karam Product & Marketing Head for Acer Middle East.
Ultra-Compact Design Results in Stunning 92% Screen-to-Body Ratio
The redesigned Swift 7 has a four-side narrow bezel design with just 2.57 mm[i], dramatically reducing the width and depth of the notebook to just 317.9 mm W x 191.5 mm D for an immersive, almost full screen display. The Swift 7 remains incredibly thin and light, measuring under 1 cm thin at 9.95 mm and weighing less than 1 kg at just 890 grams. The premium-quality magnesium alloy of the stylish chassis makes it lighter and stronger than standard aluminum. The 14-inch Full HD 1920x1080 touch display with IPS[ii] technology allows smooth touch interactions and presents vibrant and crystal-clear images featuring a 100% sRGB/72% NTSC color gamut and 300 nits of brightness. Plus, it’s extra durable thanks to a layer of Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6.
Performance with All-Day Battery Life
The Swift 7 is powered by the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8500Y processor to deliver high performance for web browsing, presentations, spreadsheets, and even using creator tools while enabling a fanless design. With up to 512GB of fast PCIe SSD storage, a large number of files can be stored and accessed quickly, and with up to 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, customers can multitask smoothly. Its long 12 hours battery life means that customers can use their Swift 7 for long periods of time.
Connectivity via Thunderbolt 3 and Advanced WIFI
Customers can accomplish more by using the two USB Type-C ports supporting Thunderbolt™ 3 for high bandwidth speeds up to 40 Gbps, while also delivering system power and connecting to any display, as well as USB 3.1 Gen 2. The DisplayPort 1.2 provides fast data transfers at up to 10 Gbps and supports high resolution external displays and speedy charging of external devices.
Staying connected with the Acer Swift 7 is reliable and super-fast with Intel Wireless-AC delivering Wi-Fi 5 capable of Gigabit speed and featuring 2x2 MU-MIMO technology. Peripherals can also be connected via Bluetooth 5.0, while the combo headphone and speaker jack ensures clear and crisp audio.
Intuitive Features for an Exceptional Experience
The Corning Gorilla Glass touchpad is precise and responsive while scrolling and navigating. Its power button doubles as a fingerprint reader so customers can simultaneously turn on the device while using a more secure login through password-free Windows Hello.
The new Swift 7 features a push-to-open camera for webchats and video recording that can be kept closed to prevent unintended camera usage and to protect privacy. The camera has a 55-degree angle of view, and features high-dynamic-range (HDR) to deliver images in wider viewing angles to accommodate groups.

The Acer Swift 7 (SF714-52T) with a touch display will be available in KSA with 16GB of LDDR3 RAM and 512GB of SSD PCIe storage from September at eXtra, starting at SAR 7,999.
