Acer Predator Triton 700 : Our Verdict + Award
The Acer Predator Triton 700 (Price Check) is a really great gaming laptop for those who want a sleek and powerful gaming laptop. It packs a ton of gaming performance in a form factor that is just under 19 mm thick, and weighs only 2.4 kg.
We are impressed by its performance. What’s not to like? It has a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with a very fast GeForce GTX 1080 GPU. If you want a gaming laptop that can take on AAA game titles, this is it.
Our model even comes with 32 GB of DDR4-2400 memory, and a RAID 0 array of two PCI Express SSDs. Serious overkill for gaming, but perfect for doing serious graphics and video work.
Beyond its raw gaming performance is its mechanical keyboard. Low-profile, yet offering the tactile feedback that many gamers desire. But we have to question their decision to adopt the see-through Gorilla Glass plate as a touchpad.
Sure, it’s a unique design feature that looks good, but it’s not practical. Whether you use the Predator Triton 700 (Price Check) for work or play, you need to pair it with a mouse.[adrotate group=”2″]
The display is another great selling point. It offers a practical full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, with an IPS panel capable of a 120 Hz refresh rate. It also supports NVIDIA G-SYNC for a premium tear-free gaming experience.
We also like the fact that it comes with not one, not two, but three display output options. This gaming laptop is designed to support an external display, if you find the 15.6″ display too small.
Its svelte form factor makes it a cinch to carry around, but its utility on-the-go is limited by its small battery. You will always be tethered to a wall socket, which means lugging along the large and heavy charger.
But if you’re a practical person who is not going to buy into the gaming on-the-go BS, the Acer Predator Triton 700 (Price Check) is a great gaming laptop. Just hook it up to a power socket, add a mouse and it will handle any game you throw at it.
In fact, we like it so much we think it deserves no less than our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, Acer!
