There have been a bunch of confirmations from major tech sites at CES, that Acer is releasing the S7 in US this month: (Engadget) "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... 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." Should lay to rest any concerns of vaporware.
