Notebooks are becoming thinner day by day. Laptop manufacturers are cutting down the thickness of the edges, and chamfering the bezels to shave precious millimeters on their latest designs, but Acer takes it one further step with their new laptop. The Acer Swift 7 comes in at under 10 millimeters, which is almost half as thin as a Macbook Air.
For the first time opening, you will be surprised as the Acer Swift 7 crushes the Macbook Air in display quality. Acer has always cleaved to the high-quality IPS display, while Macbook Air sticks with a TN type display this year that means it can’t compete to the color fidelity and clarity of the IPS display on Acer Swift 7 can provide.
Although the Macbook Air boasts a decent screen for such a small computer, it cannot compare to the rich detail and an excellent color quality display on the Acer Swift 7 as it’s currently top-of-the-line IPS display. The Acer Swift 7 and the MacBook Air look different, but they are both stunning in their own right.

The Acer Swift 7 is encompassed with a slick, black-and-gold combination, which is deliberately eye-catching. This thing is not a subtle machine, but it’s dazzling and bright and owns a tailored tuxedo in black-and-gold. Meanwhile, the Macbook Air looks drab by comparison, and that might be a good thing.
Both the Acer Swift 7 and the MacBook Air are good-looking laptops, however, and their super-slim design makes them both feel solid and dense. All of them have a premium build quality through and no flexible plastic in design.
The Macbook Air is available now with the starting price at $999 for the 13-inch model, while the Acer Swift 7 will be availble in the United States and Europe for $1,000 from October. When it comes to pricing, both the Air and Swift 7 will have to struggle with other competitors such as the Asus Zenbook and Dell XPS 13.
