Acer made waves when it unveiled their 21.5-inch gaming notebook at IFA 2016, the Predator X21 — the largest gaming notebook with a curved display and, now, with the recent release of the Acer Aspire S7, the company goes the other direction and adds yet another accolade to their laptop line for currently having the world’s thinnest notebook.
Weighing in at 1.125kg, the ultra-thin Acer Aspire S7 takes home the title of World’s Thinnest Notebook for the Taiwanese company at 9.98mm; the title was previously held by the HP Specter 13 that came in at 10.3mm. It’s not all about the accolades, however, as the Aspire S7 has the hardware for those that need a workhorse on-the-go.
Inside the Aspire S7’s metal chassis is a 7th generation Intel Core i5-7Y54 processor, that’s paired with a minimum of 4GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, and Intel’s HD Graphics 615 with a 13.3-Inch Full HD IPS Display; perfect for those times where you need to be out of the office for work, when you’re meeting clients, or just want to escape the house and head to a more conducive environment.
Connectivity options for the Aspire S7 are rather thin with just 2 USB Type-C ports, that can be used for charging and display ports over USB-C, and a 3.5mm audio jack to block out the world as you work.
