The Acer Predator Triton 700 Up Close
The Acer Predator Triton 700 (Price Check) is powered by the Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor with 32 GB of DDR4 memory, and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q Design. It even has two PCI Express SSDs running in RAID 0.
There are a total of five USB ports – three USB 3.0 ports, a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (Thunderbolt 3) Type C port, and a single USB 2.0 port. Curiously, that USB 2.0 port is actually recessed, and concealed by special cover.
To cater to gamers, it also comes with a full-sized LAN port, a HDMI 2.0 port, and a DisplayPort. Unfortunately, there is no SD card reader.
120 Hz Full HD G-SYNC Display
One of the key features of the Acer Predator Triton 700 (Price Check) is its display. It boasts a large 15.6″ display with an IPS panel and a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080. The display is capable of a 120 Hz refresh rate, and supports NVIDIA G-SYNC for a tear-free gaming experience.
If that display is not good enough, it has full-size DisplayPort and HDMI ports at the back, and a Thunderbolt 3 port on the right side, allowing you to hook up the Predator Triton 700 to an external 4K monitor.[adrotate group=”1″]
Keyboard & Touchpad
One of the Acer Predator Triton 700’s best features is its keyboard, which boasts low-profile mechanical switches and individual RGB backlighting for each key. In addition to tactile feedback, this mechanical keyboard also offers N-key rollover (NKRO) and anti-ghosting capabilities.
Right above the keyboard is a 0.7 mm Gorilla Glass glass plate. It allows you to peek inside at the spinning AeroBlade 3D fan, and doubles as a large precision touchpad.
The only problem is the position of the glass plate makes it rather inconvenient to use as a touchpad. It also lacks buttons, so you will need to use multi-touch gestures instead.
