Acer has unveiled a new version of its Swift 7 laptop at CES 2018. While still carrying the same name as last year, the device beats its previous iteration in terms of thinness. The new model, launching in March, will measure in at just 8.98 millimeters, therefore making it the world’s thinnest laptop, according to the company.

But with its girth out of the way, there isn’t a ton special about the new Swift 7. It has last year’s 7th-generation Intel Core i processors, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and up to 10 hours of battery life. Its touchscreen has increased from 13.3-inches to 14-inches, but it’s still only 1080p. There’s also a fingerprint reader, a backlit keyboard, and an eSIM card for 4G LTE connectivity.

The Swift 7 will launch for $1,699.
