Acer Swift 7 – Developed and Designed for Style and Productivity
The world’s first laptop to measure less than 1 cm thin2, the Acer Swift 7 is redefining laptop thinness with its mere 9.98 mm thin and 1.1 kg feathery lightness. Its innovative design was recently recognised by Japan’s Good Design Award for striking a fine balance between a super slim form and functionality of a laptop with operability. The Swift 7 was also named “Honoree” in the Computer Hardware and Components category on the CES 2017 Innovation awards.
The all-aluminium unibody coupled with the black-and-gold dual tone design give the Swift 7 an elegant exterior, while the durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass adds superior scratch resistance to its 13.3-inch Full HD IPS display. Armed with an HD webcam with HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging support, photographs appear clearer, brighter and more detailed.
Encased in the classy body of the Swift 7 is fast 256GB SSD and 8GB of memory and 7th Gen Intel® CoreTM i5 processor (Kaby Lake) to provide top-of-the-line performance. Acer has also achieved an amazing feat in packing in a battery that gives up to 9 hours of battery life1 – allowing users to accomplish more on the move, without having to worry about bringing the charger.
The Swift 7 is equipped with the latest 2×2 802.11ac with MU-MIMO wireless technology to deliver up to three times faster connections. Users can also enjoy quick data transfer, connection to an external display, and charging of the laptop via the dual USB 3.1 Type-C ports.
With Dolby Audio™ Premium and Acer TrueHarmony™ working simultaneously, get ready to immerse in clear and bold virtual surround sound. Its Skype for Business Certification is courtesy of its crystal clear, instant communication capability where speech recognition is much more effective and accurate with high standards of audio and visuals without echoes, gaps or lags. This gives that added confidence in usage when conducting discussions or negotiations through Skype calls.
The Swift 7 comes with an extra-large precision touch pad which enhances the overall multi-touch experience on a touchpad like never before. It doesn’t matter if you are using four, three or two fingers, your gestures fit perfectly on the extra room provided by the touch pad regardless of your finger size.
Customers who purchase the Swift 7 will enjoy Premium Warranty Service, including free system health check and cleaning, next business day turnaround repair and special counter service directly attended by technician during the warranty period without any additional charge.

The hinge also makes it easy to open but prevents toppling over when using the 13.3-inch Full HD IPS touchscreen display.

Predator Z1 – Eye-Tracking Monitor That Envelops the Player
In addition to its flagship laptops, Acer Malaysia also unveiled Predator Z1, the first 27-inch, curved monitor with NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology. Its Tobii eye-tracking technology allows new interactions like aiming, identifying enemies and taking cover simply by looking at objects on the screen. Gamers can now use their eyes and intuition as their greatest weapon. They will be able to interact with the characters more realistically and enjoy a much more immersive and seamless gaming experience.
The super curved screen (1800R curvature) with FHD 1920 x 1080 (144 Hz) ‘envelops’ the player while putting every corner of the screen at the same distance from the eyes, providing a uniform viewing experience and reducing eye strain during long hours of game play.
With NVIDIA® G-SYNC™, players can look forward to smooth and fast game-play without lag on the Predator Z1. Screen tearing will be a thing of the past while stuttering is minimised. With a super high refresh rate of 200Hz1 and fast response time of 4ms1 GTG (Gray to Gray), the Predator Z1 enables silky smooth gaming experience like never before.

With Flicker-less, BlueLightShield™, ComfyView and Low-dimming technology offered by the AcerVisionCare™, you can stay in the fight for hours without feeling fatigue.
The Predator Z1 has an ergonomically-designed stand with tilt (from -5° to 25°), swivel (from +30° to -30°), and height adjustment (up to 120 mm) for gamers to find that ideal viewing position. The monitor can be easily separated from its stand to be VESA wall-mounted, thanks to the quick-release design.
Retails at RM2,999.00, the Predator Z1 will be available at select authorized Acer resellers nationwide by mid-December 2016.
