    It's really cute, but I agree with you. I don't travel much anymore, but I don't think it would survive a road trip. Let's see. :)

    I seem to disagree with OP. The thin part is not a recipe for not buying it. Thin laptops of those nature are usually stronger than most bulky ones out there because they are made out of stronger materials not plastic that can easily bend or break. Having used a thin laptop myself before switching to Acer Aspire S 7 I found out their parts are more durable too. I haven't replaced any part of it for the past two years with rugged use and dropping from my hand countless times.

    Yes, I will buy this Swift 7 laptop if I have the financial backing as a replacement for my Acer Aspire S 7. It looks more like upgraded version of it. The design is pretty nice and aesthetic.

    I think it's mostly advertising hype. what are any advantages of having a laptop/notebook one inch, one half inch or even less? Does one need an ultra thin laptop to smuggle into business meetings?

    oh look... an even thinner laptop! .....so what?

    I can't imagine the cooling system trying to lower the heat :biggrin: A complete blatant fraud.

    Indeed, it would be hard to fit a cooling fan in there. On the other hand, there are practically no internal cavities for heat to build up and be trapped, while everything is in contact with the surface. So, I suppose without knowing, it wouls rely on natural cooling thru the exposed surface.

    I don't think so...

    Went to the Acer web site to check out the specs on this thing, Acer only wants you to see their beautiful 13.3" screen and how great the audio is, no mention that I can find on things that would matter to me like CPU, GPU and memory. Why are they hiding this?

    Looks like the Swift 7 is going to be Intel's 7th-Gen i-series. MSRP is $999 USD, so I'm guessing that's the i5U/i7U (15W) model?

    Perhaps some kind of peltier cooling, or possibly water cooling. I don't know, but that would make sense, seeing as you couldn't fit a fan in there.

    It looks great, but expensive one :( ... and I would wait Kaby Lake one for the improved battery life.
