With its look straight out of a futuristic sci-fi movie, Acer's new Predator Triton 900 promises to deliver an extraordinary user experience. Immediately, the point on this new concentrate of technology and engineering.
Although Acer announced it at IFA 2018, it was ultimately at CES 2019 currently taking place in Las Vegas that details were unveiled for Predator Triton 900 and its brother, the Predator Triton 500 : technical specifications , introductory price, and a probable in-store release date around March in North America.
In terms of configuration, the Predator Triton 900 will ship an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor , 32 GB RAM, NVMe PCIe SSDs, all this combined with the latest generation graphics processor developed by Nvidia, the RTX 2080 Max -Q whose graphics performance speak for itself. On the display side, the 17.6-inch touchscreen IPS screen (144Hz refresh rate) supports 4K resolution and features Nvidia's G-Sync technology .
A multi-convertible screen with 4 user modes
What is obvious when you look at the Predator Triton 900 for the first time is the design of the swiveling screen that rotates around a vertical axis : the “ Aero Ezel ” hinge. The characteristic machined aluminum structure allows the user to choose between 4 orientation modes: “portable” mode (notebook mode) as for a conventional laptop, “tablet” mode (stand mode) which allows you to l 'use exactly like a tablet, but in a high-performance version, “Ezel mode” which allows the user to better benefit from the capabilities of the touch screen and finally, for games with friends, the “shared” mode (the screen is almost tilted back).
For those interested, this laptop also features an Xbox Wireless Receiver allowing connection to an Xbox One controller, eliminating the need for a mouse and keyboard.
Faced with such performances, the question that arises is necessarily the price. Well, to offer you the Predator Triton 900 you will have to spend the modest sum of $ 3,999, which is not within everyone's financial capacity. But we can always fall back on its little brother, the Predator Triton 500, thinner and lighter, but with roughly the same configurations for $ 1,799.
