Acer just unveiled the thinnest laptop in the world

Meanwhile, Acer also announced updated models of the Nitro 5 and the convertible Spin 3 (laptop-cum-tablet) along with fan-less Acer Switch 7 laptop and the ridiculously over-the-top 18-core Acer Predator Orion 9000 gaming PC (Intel Core i9).

Unveiled back at IFA 2017, the Acer Switch 7 Black Edition (SW713-51) will be available at a price starting $1,699 (Rs 107,500 approximately) later this month. Headling the list is the Swift 7, an ultra-thin notebook with 4G LTE connectivity. The notebook comes with a fingerprint reader and supports face detection through Windows Hello.

Just like last year, Acer introduced quite a few new exciting products at CES this year.

The laptop is powered by the 8 generation Intel core processor, with a maximum battery life of 12 hours.

The refreshed version of Acer Spin 3 is designed for all-day productivity and entertainment.

Acer describes the Swift 7 as "the ideal PC for those who have things to do and create anywhere, at any time". The new Spin 3 will be reaching USA in February starting at $599 and in EMEA countries this month itself.

New Year's Eve wind chill in Detroit forecast at -16 below
The National Weather Service says these cold temperatures can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes of exposed skin. For New Year's Day, wind chills could be as low as -20 in the morning and only rising to 0 to -5 in the afternoon.

The new 15.6-inch 1080p display-sporting Nitro 5 laptops are configurable with up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and 512GB of storage.

With many major manufacturers refreshing their popular laptops with Intel's more powerful 8th Generation processors, Acer's decision is a little disappointing but I guess that's the price you have to pay for ultimate thinness.

The Acer Switch 7 Black Edition will be available in the United States starting at $1,699.

Besides the 10-hour battery life, the company touted the quietness of the fanless laptop. It is fitted with a 14-inch full HD IPS 5 display.

On the connectivity front, the Acer Chromebook 11 has two USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth v4.2, and 2×2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi in addition to the two USB Type-C ports. It is backed up by 8GB LPDDR3 RAM and 256GB of SSD storage.

Hardware includes an Intel Celeron CPU, 2GB or 4GB of RAM, a HDR webcam, microphone, dual stereo speakers, and 16GB or 32GB of storage. The device will also fully support Google Play when it launches. There's no need to charge the new Acer Pen. The Nitro 5 and Chromebook 11 will be available for $799 (Rs 50,500 approx) and $249 (Rs 15,800) respectively.
