Just 18.9mm thick and 2.6kg
You know what sucks about high-performance gaming notebooks? How much they weigh. Many gaming notebooks are portable only in theory, and require serious amount of calories to lug around everywhere. That doesn’t apply to the new Predator Triton 700, the new, thin and light gaming notebook from Acer’s gaming brand that’s meant to go after premium notebooks like Razer’s Blade.
The new notebook sports angular front corners and a minimalist, clutter-free design, with a large Corning Gorilla Glass plate above the keyboard serving as a window to the notebook’s cooling system, which is similar to the one in the company’s massive Predator 21 X gaming notebook. But the big difference here is that the glass plate isn’t just there to show off the AeroBlade 3D Fan and five heat pipes that keep everything cool with use – it also acts as the notebook’s touchpad. The entire package is just 18.9mm thick and 2.6kg in weight.
The notebook has a 15.6-inch full HD IPS display, and if you’re the type that connects your gaming PC to an external monitor when you get home, you’ll be happy to know that the Triton 700 has NVIDIA G-Sync support for external monitors. Depending on the configuration you get, you’ll be able to get a 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA’s new Pascal-powered GeForce 10-series discrete graphics, along with two NVMe PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration and up to 32GB of DDR 2400MHz memory with the notebook. Acer’s also throwing in a mechanical keyboard in the mix as well.
No pricing for the Philippines as of yet, though the Predator Triton 700 will be available in the US starting August along with a price tag of $2999 (Php 150K).
