At Acer’s global press conference held recently in New York, the Taiwanese electronics major announced a bunch of new products including new 4K monitors, Aspire branded laptops, Predator branded gaming products, all-in-ones and a lot of other interesting products. In this article, we take a look at the new Acer Predator Triton 700 gaming laptop that also saw officialdom at the event.
Now, at first glance, the Triton 700 looks nothing like your average gaming laptop. Gaming laptops, for example, are not supposed to be svelte, slim machines. At 18.9 mm and weighing just over 2.6kg, the Triton 700 is quite diminutive for a full-fledged portable gaming rig. Within its (relatively) thin frame, the Triton 700 houses a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display. Acer has chosen not to reveal what kind of hardware powers the laptop. What we do know is that it gets a standard-voltage 7th Generation Intel Core processor, and a “high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series graphics, two NVMe PCIe1 SSDs in RAID 0 configuration and up to 32GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory.”
While we are still in the dark when it comes to the CPU and GPU details we do have other bits of information about the laptop. For example, the Triton 700 supports Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, 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. It also boasts of a mechanical keyboard, with individually programmable RGB backlit keys.
Expect this one to be released by August 2017 for a base price tag of $3,000
