Its unbelievably thin but has enough power and functionality to accomplish most everyday tasks.
The Swift7 slips right into most backpacks with room to spare. Its measurements are: 11.7x7.3 by a skinny 0.47 inches tall and it’s black and gold polished aluminum case is a departure from the average silver notebook The Swift7’s basic configuration is 8GB of memory, a 256GB solid state drive, two USB 3.1,type C ports,a 13.3-inch 1920 x1080 screen and a headphone jack
The 13.3 inch screen isn’t touch enabled..
I found the keyboard on this to be a little cramped,although after I used it for about an hour, my typing speed was back up to my normal 65 words per minute. The keyboard is not backlit, which I found unusual given that the Swift7 it competes with other super slim notebooks that come with backlit keyboards,
The large touch pad on the Swift 7 is a joy. There’s enough room to use multi-finger gestures and get accurate results
It’s when I went all geeky, that I came to the conclusion that this notebook’s i5 1.2GHZ processor is a shortcoming.. But,despite its relatively low clock speed I found the swift7 had have enough oomph to power through presentations, graphics and streaming video without hiccuping. In the positive column, the Swift7 produces vivid displays, which .I think makes this skinny notebook a good choice for road warriors. Another big plus is the near-8 hour Battery life While testing this system, I never once run out of juice--including one close the ld in San Diego and resume work 475 air miles later in the San Francisco Bay area experiment with a half charge on the battery.
Supplied to me by the manufacturer for this review, this notebook can be purchased from online retailers such as Amaon for $999.00
The downside here is the Swift 7 could have better performance. The Upside is the Swift 7 is built like a tank and it’s small footprint and light weight means there’s more room in my backpack for essentials such as a new collapsible freshwater spinning rod and reel, a selection of lures and an electronic book containing Hemingway, Steinbeck and Tom Wolfe.--jim forbes on September 9,2017.
