Its CES 2018 line-up is unlikely to change that, but you should still skim what's new to see if anything catches your eye.

The Acer Swift 7 is expected to go on sale in Europe in April, with pricing starting at €1,699 - United Kingdom pricing is unconfirmed.

Apart from the Chromebook 11, Acer also revealed other notebooks this week, the Swift 7, the Acer Spin 3 and the Nitro 5 gaming laptop. The Acer Swift 7 sports an aluminium unibody design, which imparts a premium look to the laptop. Its touchscreen has increased from 13.3-inches to 14-inches, but it's still only 1080p.

After LG, Samsung and HP, Acer has now unveiled four new laptops, including "the world's thinnest" laptop. Headling the list is the Swift 7, an ultra-thin notebook with 4G LTE connectivity.

Besides the 10-hour battery life, the company touted the quietness of the fanless laptop. Additionally, the laptop also comes with built-in 4G LTE connectivity, so that users can access to high-speed internet on the go. There is 256GB SSD storage onboard alongside some security features including Windows Hello fingerprint scanner.

Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact. Type O negative: The blood type that can be transfused to nearly everyone and is what doctors reach for in trauma situations.

Powered by a 7 Gen Intel Core i7 processor, the Swift 7 provides incredible performance, a seamless Windows 10 experience and up to 10 hours of battery life. Acer Swift 7 is not cheap either.

AMD Radeon RX560 graphics and AMD Ryzen processors, and up to 32GB of LPDDR4 RAM help power high-end gaming on the go.

That slim design does make for some slightly odd-looking quirks, though. The Nitro 5 and Chromebook 11 will be available for $799 (Rs 50,500 approx) and $249 (Rs 15,800) respectively. Thanks to the powerful 8th Generation Intel Core processor and NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 graphics, it has the processing and graphics power to handle intensive tasks, content creation, and video streaming.
