When it comes to laptops from Acer Predator series, often times gamers picture a heavy laptop that would help you to build back muscle in case you decide to carry it regularly. However, recently, the company revealed a new model in the Predator series with Predator Triton 700. Although the company like other counterparts said that the model is thin and portable. Those who are familiar with gaming laptops know that the claim is often overhyped as the gaming laptops are not very portable most of the times. However, with the Triton 700, Acer blew it out of the park as the laptop is just 18.9 mm thick and weighs just 5.7 pounds.
Apart from the thin Aluminum body, the Triton 700 packs incredible power as Acer said, “Powering the beast within is a standard-voltage 7th Generation Intel Core processor, latest high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series graphics, two NVMe PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration and up to 32GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory.”
The 15.6” laptop also added another cool design feature by moving the trackpad from the traditional position to closer to the display. Interestingly, Acer decided to go with clear trackpad which will give you a clear view of internals and cooling system. Although the position of trackpad might be uncomfortable for everyday use, gamers are going to use a mouse which makes the design better as at times, trackpad is a distraction for otherwise great gaming PCs.
Talking about the design, the company said, “Rounding out the notebook’s powerful features are Killer DoubleShot Pro networking and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which provides speeds up to 40 Gbps and supports dual 4K video output. The Predator Triton 700 also includes two USB 3.0 ports (featuring power-off USB charging), one USB 2.0 port, an HDMI 2.0 port, one DisplayPort connector and a Gigabit Ethernet port for those preferring a hard-wired connection. Networking is powered by Killer DoubleShot Pro technology, which picks the fastest network connection (Ethernet or Wireless) and sends all high priority traffic over that interface, while standard traffic is sent over the other.”
However, you have to wait pretty long until the laptop arrives in the market as Acer is hoping to release the laptop later in August this year. If you want to go with the laptop though, you might need to break the bank as the pricing of the series will start from $2,999. Hopefully, the laptop will perform as good as it looks and with the design and portability, you might have a hard time waiting for the laptop.
