    Way too expensive for the specs. You'd be insane to buy this over an XPS 13

    Acer’s press release says the new Swift 7 is powered by a 7th gen Intel Core i7 processor. We aren’t sure why it hasn’t been upgraded to an 8th gen model like the simultaneously launched Acer Spin 3.
    Because there's no 8Y75 yet?

    "thin" and "portable" should not be confused. I'd argue this is less portable than a thicker same-spec competitor product. Why? Well, being this thin it is much more likely to be damaged while its being moved about... I'd constantly be even more worried about knocking it or crushing it getting on and off of trains etc. Portable = No. Thin = Yes.

    This pushing for thinner and thinner just forces compromises.
    When it costs more, and has lesser specs for no reason than the aesthetics, then that isn't a better product.

    Utlrabooks these days are already thin enough, I would rather they put in a bigger battery and/or better heatsink than make them even thinner.
