At CES this year, Acer is showing off the latest additions to its notebook lineup with the Acer Swift 7, Switch 7 Black Edition and Acer Spin 3 laptops. Across the board, you'll find thinner and lighter designs with an upgrade under the hood to newer Intel chips.

The company claims that its Acer Swift 7 is the thinnest computer in the world at 8.98mm thick. Under the hood it has an Intel Core i7 CPU and integrated LTE radio. All that's wrapped in a black unibody enclosure with a 14-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen. Acer says the machine gets up to 10 hours of battery life and will be available in March in the US, starting at $1,699. It will start at £1,599 in the UK when it launches in April.

The previously announced Acer Switch 7 Black Edition will be available starting this month at the same starting price. It's powered by an 8th-generation Intel Core processor and a discrete Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU. Other amenities include a fingerprint reader and a stylus made by Wacom.

The updated Acer Spin 3 has an 8th-generation Intel Core chip as well, and can get up to 12 hours of battery life. The new model still has the 360-degree hinge on it that allows for four different use modes, including a full tablet position. It will be available next month starting at $599/£479.
