Ahead of IFA 2017’s official start date later this week, Acer has unveiled a lineup of new devices. However, the most interesting of their announcements today seems to be what the company claims is the “world’s first” fanless 2-in-1 with discrete graphics. Called the Swift 7 Black Edition, the device packs Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics with Acer’s Dual LiquidLoop technology for keeping things cool without fans. It even features Intel’s 8th-generation Core i7 processor and weighs 2.5 pounds. The screen is detachable from its keyboard base, while the stand for the display itself can be ejected by pressing down on the bottom of the tablet while it’s lying on a flat surface. Additionally, there’s a fingerprint sensor, Wacom stylus support, and a 13.5-inch 2256×1504 screen.

Acer says the Swift 7 Black Edition will start at $1,699 and will go on sale this December. Until then, you’ll have to wait around for the first fanless 2-in-1 with discrete graphics by staring at the above photos.
