As far as specifications are concerned, the Swift 7 spots a 14-inch Full HD IPS touch display with the resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, which is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass.

Acer has showcased the Swift 7 (SF714-51T) laptop. 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.

Alongside the CPUs, the Swift 7 has 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a 265GB PCIe SSD; all in all pretty decent, if not remarkable. It works well, though we'd recommend getting the GTX 1050 Ti variant, if you can find it. This year, it'll feature updated specs in the form of 8th Generation Intel Core processors. Other contributors to portability have been addressed; there is built-in Intel XMM 4G LTE connectivity with nano SIM slot, and up to 10 hours of battery life is useful when you are on the road.

Acer also rolled out its Chromebook 11, which will support Google Play for Android apps and two USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1 ports. It'll go on sale in March for a whopping $1,699 (around £1,250).

Casual gamers looking for a laptop at the cheaper end of the scale might want to check out the updated Nitro 5. The device is powered by the lRyzen mobile processor with Radeon TX560 graphics.

The Nitro 5's chassis features a top cover with elegant laser texturing that brings bold refinement to the gaming laptop.
