Acer unveils fanless Switch 7 with dedicated graphics, affordable Spin 5 convertible

New Acer Laptops 2017: Are these the ultimate lightweight student notebooks?

The "pioneering" Switch 7 is billed as the world's first fanless 2-in-1 notebook equipped with discrete graphics, which is no small feat, handling your hardcore gaming needs while keeping everything running nice and silent. The Switch 7 Black Edition sports a 13.5-inch display with a sharp 2256 x 1504 (201 PPI) resolution in 3:2 aspect ratio. The display also incorporates Wacom EMR technology with support for 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Such an achievement is thanks to Acer Dual LiquidLoop cooling tech, which keeps the Black Edition from overheating despite the lack of a fan.

You can unlock the Switch 7 Black Edition using Windows Hello and the accompanying optical-based under-glass fingerprint sensor. The device is powered by 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics.

Next up is the Swift 5, a new machine that Acer says is designed for users who want portability, performance, and style to boot. The laptop itself weighs less than 1.15kg with the keyboard detached, and features a brushed aluminium body that Acer says offers "a robust feel and lovely tactile touch". More concrete is the mention of ultralight magnesium-lithium allows for the top and bottom cover, and magnesium allows for extra sturdiness at the palm rest.

The plague continues: Chelsea to buy Chamberlain from Arsenal
Now, according to reports in the media, it seems that winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (24) is leaving. From the first minute of the match, Oxlade-Chamberlain looked complete uninterested in the game.

The Switch 7 Black Edition is the first system to utilize Acer's AutoStand, a kickstand that can be deployed and retracted using a single hand. Like the others, the Swift 5 is powered by Intel's Kaby Lake-R lineup.

The Switch 7 Black edition is a sleek looking ultrabook that is pretty light at just 1.15Kgs.

As expected, the Acer Swift 5 also features an 8th-generation Intel Core processor (unspecified at this point), and boasts a fairly generous 8-hour battery life.

The Acer Spin 5 can be used in laptop mode, tablet mode, and tent mode, just like the Lenovo Yoga series. While the company isn't offering exact configurations or pricing, the updated Spin 5 will come with Intel's new 8th-generation processors, offer up to 16GB of RAM, and, on the 15-inch model, a dedicated Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU.

The laptop will feature Dolby Audio Premium along with Acer's own TrueHarmony audio technology being pushed through two front-facing speakers.
