    The current swift 7 black edition i7 with 512Gb SSD is $3050 in canada before taxes and with taxes is is about $3400. Really expensive for a home machine. Its competitive with a Microsoft Surface machine.

    I freakin HATEchin cams, nose cams, whatever 😝 that’s been a killer for me on otherwise “perfect laptops” in my search for an upgrade next month 🙈

    Thanks but can you close the screen to see how thin it is ?

  • January 11, 2019 at 11:16

    Wow it looks so thin…

    Does it come with bend feature too?

    Be careful buying Acer with Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168. It sucks. I got mine and just 2 months it is no longer working. Unable to connect to any router even though I did everything from uninstalling, reinstalling updating drivers. System Restoring my pc and still the same.

    Better be equiped with 8th gen core i7/i5 and nvidia mx150 or amd ryzen 3/5 with vega 8

    Kinda weird fingerprint placement. Looks odd next to the webcam. I like Huawei's approach of placing it in the keyboard much more.

    People do you remember that bullshit promise of the IT industry that said "with time technology will get cheaper"? Ok, in the mid 00s the cost of an equivalent machine was around 900 bucks. This is so much bullshit.

    thanks just bought one recently from ebay and it cost me $899.99. Love it cool experience super fust.

    Wonder if they could make it even thinner if they used an ARM cpu like Qualcomm’s snapdragon 8CX.

    Beautiful device running a useless and bloatware infested OS that corrupts your data and deteriorates your device faster than you can say "Fuck Windows."

  • January 20, 2019 at 14:55

    Looks great! But the trackpad doesn't convince me. I would like to see a new Acer Alpha Switch 12.

  • January 22, 2019 at 14:08

    How's the keyboard? Light and clicky? My old reliable acer is hard to type on..

  • January 28, 2019 at 01:55

    Thin, but with no ports! Definetely not versatile

  • February 1, 2019 at 01:15

    I'd like one–after I rip out the MS OS and install Linux Mint 19 with a fresh copy of LibreOffice.

    I will wait for the next generation Huawei MateBook X Pro, probably "Pro II" with x360 design and SD card slot, apprx. March – April 2019

    This reminds me of Sony's VAIO laptops from back in the days(early 2000's when VAIO was still a thing).
