Acer Swift 7 (2018) review: This spectacularly thin and light PC is a pain to actually use

Acer’s Swift 7 (2018) is unquestionably one of the lightest, thinnest laptops around. But a genuinely frustrating keyboard and trackpad, plus poor performance—which the company appears to have solved in its 2019 edition—makes us advise passing this over for the upcoming model, instead.

Physically, the Swift 7 is awe-inspiring. It’s astonishing that the 0.35-inch thin notebook needs to widen to accommodate the minuscule USB-C connectors that run along the sides of the chassis. Acer nicely provides a leather sleeve to slide the Swift 7 into, and it’s thin and durable enough to slip easily into a messenger bag or backpack.

With a 7th-gen Core tablet-quality chip inside, however, performance lags the competition significantly, while the battery life is merely satisfactory. While I loved holding and carrying the Swift 7, the subpar performance and typing experience doesn’t make the Swift 7 worth buying.
