If you're on the move a lot then choosing the best lightweight laptop is incredibly important. The ultraportable market is really, really busy with manufacturers making laptops of all descriptions and varieties. During our testing, Acer Swift 7 stood out as an exceptional choice, combining power with an incredibly lightweight body. And these laptop deals make picking it up easier than ever.

The problem that a lot of lightweight and ultraportable laptops come up against is that, in order to make themselves as small and light as possible, things have to be left out. And those things are usually important, like a fan that can cool a powerful processor or a larger display.

Acer has – somehow – managed to avoid all of these pitfalls with the Swift 7 and it shows. There's no fan but Intel's 8th-gen i7 is still onboard, providing a lot of oomph alongside 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. The bezel-less 14-inch touchscreen is a joy to use, too, and it's especially strong thanks to Corning's Gorilla Glass.

While you're never going to be able to edit complex videos or photos, for most people the Swift 7 is ideal: light (1.2kg) and thin (9mm) enough to be ultraportable while retaining enough power and battery life for all-day usage.

Getting the right ultraportable laptop is a tricky balancing act: you need something lightweight that doesn't compromise on power too much while maintaining all-day battery life, a big screen, and a spacious keyboard. Acer's Swift 7 does all these things and does them exceptionally well.
