Acer Unveils its Quirky Ultrathin Predator Triton 700 Gaming Laptop [VIDEO]
Acer's Predator laptops are mostly too much for most consumers who don't really want to lug around a heavy gaming laptop around with them. Now, Acer is offering up a solution with the first ultrathin laptop in its brand new line of gaming laptops, the Acer Predator Triton 700.
The new laptop is aimed at taking on the likes of the Razer Blade gaming system as evident in its new sleek design and aluminum chassis. Similar to its competitors the new Acer Predator Triton 700 will boast some relatively high-end specs that should let it run the latest games at decent settings.
While it isn't really as thin as the Razer Blade, Acer's new laptop is quite sleek at just 18mm thick. According to PC World, the device is still thinner than most gaming laptops in its class and fits right into most carrying cases and laptop bags, unlike its ridiculously humongous big brother, the GTX 1080-euipped Acer Predator 21X.
Despite its slim profile, Acer has managed to cram in some decent specs into the devices, which includes a seventh generation Intel Kaby Lake Processor. The laptop will likely have both Core i5 and i7 models as options. Acer, unfortunately, did not divulge the exact graphics card that will be included, but it will definitely be a Nvidia GTX 10-series GPU. As per a report from The Verge, the laptop will also be coming with two PCIe solid state drives and can be equipped with up to 32 GB of DRR4 RAM.
When it comes to its design, Acer has gone through a unique route as it has decided to switch the typical position of the keyboard and the trackpad. The mechanical back-lit keyboard is now below the trackpad, which now sits laminated behind a Gorilla Glass panel on top. Being a gaming laptop, most users will not likely use the trackpad when gaming, which means that they should have more access to the keyboard without accidentally tapping on the trackpad.
The Acer Predator Triton 700 will reportedly become available sometime in August and will be priced at around $3,700.
