Acer Swift 7 review: The skinny on the world's 'thinnest laptop' (video)

Acer's ultra-thin Swift 7 laptop is certainly impressive to look at. At just 8.9mm thick, it's actually thinner than some smartphones. Combine that with a great (albeit 1080p) display, LTE support, and battery life that's surprising for its size, and you've got a formidable device. But those alluring aesthetics do come with some downsides, not least of which is that $1,700 price tag.

So is it worth it? Check out our video review below to find out.
