Intel Core i5-8250U is coming (4-core ULV), Acer Swift 3 to get it early

Acer Swift 3 will be one of the first models to sport the upcoming Core i5-8250U from the Coffee Lake generation by Intel. Despite being ultra thin (17.95 mm / 0.7″) and light (1.7 kg / 3.8 lbs), the 14-inch laptop is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 discrete GPU (2GB GDDR5) and 8GBs of RAM. Another big advantage will be the PCIe NVMe storage (still unconfirmed) and the Full HD IPS screen.

However, the jewel in the crown is definitely the new Core i5-8250U which has four cores with 3.4 GHz Turbo Boost frequency and 6MBs of LL cache. It should provide decent performance even for casual photo / video editing and although the Swift 3 has DDR3 RAM, 8250U supports DDR4 at 2133 MHz.

You can check out the prices and configurations of the current generation Acer Swift 3 here:

We found it in several online stores, the price is €1099 ($1260).

I am very interest in purchasing the Acer Swift 3 with 17 inch laptop. I wonder how soon can I find it in the high street and how much it would be. My current 17 inch is too heavy to carry arround.
