Earlier this year Acer announced their gigantic gaming laptop, the Predator 21 X. Its $9,000 price tag and 19.4 pounds body screams it’s not meant for everyone. Each Predator 21 X comes with a military style hard carrying case and the first 300 units will feature a limited edition series number on the panel.
For $9000 you will get the 7th generation (Kaby Lake) Intel Core i7-7820HK processor paired with two GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI, G-Sync supported curved 2560×1080 resolution 21-inch display panel with 120Hz refresh rate, 64GB of DDR4-2400 memory, RGB lighted Mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches, 512GB SSD and 1TB HDD.
It can store up to five storage drives at a time. It has five system fans and requires nine heat pipes to stay cool. It requires two power supplies to provide juice to the powerful hardware. If you have the $9000 laying around and want to own ‘the best’ gaming laptop out there then look no further, the Predator 21 X is the one.
After introducing the world to their humongous gaming laptop, Acer announced the Predator Triton 700. It is the first laptop in the company’s new line of Predator Triton gaming laptops.
The Predator Triton 700 features an aluminum chassis, weighs around 5.7 pounds, and just 18.9mm (0.74 inches) thick. Predator Triton series is designed to take over the thin gaming laptops available in the market.
The design and specs of the Triton 700 make it a direct competitor of the high-end Razer Blade laptops. It features 7th generation (Kaby Lake) Intel processor, NVIDIA GTX 10-series graphics cards (no words on the configuration), two PCIe SSDs, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and G-Sync supported 15.6-inch 1080p IPS display panel.

It has LED backlighted Mechanical keyboard located at the very front of the laptop. The trackpad is moved on the top and is located under the Gorilla Glass panel. This may look like a strange configuration for a normal user but from a gamer’s perspective moving the keyboard at the very front is an interesting choice. And the odd trackpad location shouldn’t bother a gamer anyway.
The Triton 700 is a thin VR-Ready gaming laptop and Acer is collaborating with the Intel to continuously push the boundaries. Frank Soqui, General Manager of the Virtual Reality and Gaming Group at Intel Corporation said, “”Acer is driving some incredible new products for the gaming and VR-ready category and Intel is excited to work together to push what’s possible on the PC platform, It’s amazing what can be done with the mobile form factor these days not just at the high end but also for emerging VR in the mainstream—powered by our 7th generation Intel Core high-performance processors.”
The Predator Triton 700 will go on sale in August starting at $2,999.
Stay tuned for the updates.
