This Acer notebook is feather-light, too, with its weight of 890 grams. It’s easy to stuff in your briefcase or small bag, and not feel encumbered carrying this portable computer at all. Despite that, the Swift 7 is durable with a body made with magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloy. Acer also applied a micro-arc oxidation finish to create a elegant, ceramic-like surface. Plus, the layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 makes the screen extra durable.
Moreover, this Acer device has chiclet keyboard with well-spaced keys, Corning Gorilla Glass touchpad, and a power button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner.
