2021 Acer Predator Triton + Helios Gaming Laptops First Look!

Acer just introduced the 2021 Predator Triton and Predator Helios line of gaming laptops!

Take a look at these brand new gaming laptops and find out what they offer!

 

2021 Predator Triton + Helios Gaming Laptops Are Here!

On 30 September 2021, Acer unveiled the 2021 Predator Triton and Predator Helios line of gaming laptops!

These newly-refreshed gaming laptops now offer a new level of gaming performance, with even better displays!

Let’s start with their official launch briefing video…

 

2021 Predator Triton 500 SE

The 2021 Predator Triton 500 SE (Special Edition) is a discreetly-designed gaming laptop that look like professional business laptops, but will blast the competition out of the water in any game!

The new Predator Triton 500 SE is incredibly powerful, pairing an 11th Gen Intel® Core i9 processor with the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3080 GPU, with up to 32 GB of fast DDR4 memory.

Its 16-inch IPS display offers a large work space with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. No one would possibly guess that this large, high-resolution display is also fantastic for gaming, especially when it supports a 165 Hz refresh rate!

To ensure that it stays cool, even under the most strenuous work or gaming conditions, the Predator Triton 500 SE employs the Acer Vortex Flow cooling design, which features :

  • a triple-fan cooling system
  • 5th Generation AeroBlade 3D fans
  • five dedicated heat pipes
  • strategically-placed intake and exhaust vents

Best of all – it offers up to 12-hours of battery life, in a 19.9 mm thin all-metal chassis that weighs only 2.4 kg! This lets you use the Predator Triton 500 SE for a full day of work or game on-the-go!

Why waste money on two separate laptops – one for work, one for play, when you can use the Predator Triton 500 SE for both? That’s why I’m especially excited about the 2021 Predator Triton 500 SE.

Acer is offering two models, priced at RM12,999 and RM8,999 respectively, with a 2 year on-site warranty with protection against accidental damage and theft!

2021 Predator Helios 500

For those who want the ultimate desktop-like gaming performance in a laptop, the 2021 Predator Helios 500 is the answer.

The top-of-the-line model pairs up to 11th Gen Intel® Core i9-11980HK processor, with an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3080 GPU with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, together with up to 64 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of fast SSD storage!

The Intel® Core i9 model comes with a magnificent 17.3-inch Mini LED display, with 4K resolution and support for full-array local dimming!

The Intel® Core i7 model, on the other hand, comes with a super-fast Full HD display with a 360 Hz refresh rate and a 3 ms response time.

The 2021 Predator Helios 500 is kept cool by Predator PowerGem – a custom metal-alloy polymer on the CPU, as well as Acer Vortex Flow technology with two 5th Generation AeroBlade 3D fans.

The RGB-lit keys can also be further customised by the discerning gamer, who can swap them for Acer Racing or MagForce keys (featuring MagTek mechanical switches).

If you really want the best gaming laptop money can buy, definitely look at the Predator Helios 500.

2021 Acer Spin 3 + Spin 5 : What You Need To Know!

Acer just introduced the 2021 Spin 3 and Spin 5 convertible laptop models, with the latest Intel processors!

Take a look at both new Spin 3 and Spin 5 laptops, and find out what they offer!

 

2021 Acer Spin 3 + Spin 5 : What You Need To Know!

The 2020 Red Dot Design Award-winning Acer Spin 5 was just refreshed, and so is its sibling – the Acer Spin 3.

Convertible Design

They are both convertible laptops, with 360-degree hinges that lets them transform into different form factors to suit your requirements.

You can take notes in the tablet mode, watch movies in the tent mode, or use the clamshell mode for a more ergonomic typing experience!

Performance

Both models offer the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with Intel Iris Xe Graphics, and come with up to 16 GB of LPDDR4X memory and 512 GB of fast PCIe NVMe SSD storage!

The 2021 Acer Spin 5 models, in particular, come with the latest PCIe Gen 4 SSD, which offers double the transfer speed of PCIe Gen 3 SSDs.

Both models are Intel Evo platform-certified, which means they have designed to deliver better CPU, GPU and Wi-Fi performance, instant wake-up, and longer battery life!

This gives you a desktop-like computing performance, in a slim and light convertible form factor.

High Resolution Touch Display

The 2021 Acer Spin 5 offers a 13.5-inch QHD IPS display, with an impressive 80% screen-to-body ratio, with multi-touch and AES pen support.

The 2021 Acer Spin 3, on the other hand, comes with a 13.3-inch WQXGA IPS display, also with multi-touch and AES pen support.

Both displays support 100% sRGB colour gamut, and DC dimming, which allows for no-flicker image quality in low light conditions!

Acer Active Stylus

Both 2021 Acer Spin laptops come with the Acer Active Stylus in a built-in dock, that gives it a 90 minute battery life with just 15 seconds of charging!

With two configurable buttons, this active stylus supports 4,096 pressure levels, and offers a pen-to-paper like writing experience!

Antimicrobial Coating!

The 2021 Acer Spin 5 laptop is coated with a BPR and EPA-compliant silver-ion coating on the keyboard, fingerprint reader and palm rest, with its touchpad and display are protected by Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass.

Both the antibacterial coating and the antimicrobial glass inhibit and reduce bacterial growth on all surfaces that we may touch.

This is an important feature, because the Acer Spin 5 laptop will actually reduce the amount of bacteria we come into contact!

Embedded Fingerprint Reader

A fingerprint reader is embedded directly into the touchpad, giving you an easy and secure way to verify your identity using Windows Hello, without typing in a password.

This is very useful when you are using the laptop in public, where typing out a password is not recommended.

High-Speed Connectivity

Both 2021 Spin 5 and Spin 3 laptops come with Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 built-in, for the fastest possible WiFi connectivity with lower latency.

On top of that, it all comes with dual Type-C with Thunderbolt 4 ports. These are ultra-fast ports that offer data and video transfers of up to 40 Gb/s – four times faster than USB 3.2!

Both these Thunderbolt 4 ports also allow you to output up to two 4K external displays for even greater productivity.

Light + Tough

The 2021 Spin laptops are built with an aluminium chassis, offering a slimmer profile and lighter weight.

The Spin 5 is only 14.9 mm thin, and weighs only 1.2 kg, while the Spin 3 is just 15.9 mm thin, and weighs only 1.4 kg.

Not only will they fit comfortably into any tote or laptop bag, you will have no problem carrying them in your hands for hours on end.

Acer Aspire Vero : The First Earthion Laptop!

The emphasis on sustainability is carried over in the design language too. All graphics on the shipping box are printed with soy ink, and the notebook itself has no paint on its chassis, reducing its impact on the environment. The laptop is also held together by easily-accessible, standardised screws for easier disassembly.

11th Gen Intel Core Performance

The Acer Aspire Vero is powered by the latest 11th Gen Intel Core processor with Iris Xe graphics, with up to 1 TB of M.2 SSD storage.

It boasts Intel Wi-Fi 6 wireless connectivity, a USB Type C port, two USB 3.2 ports and a HDMI 2.0 port for video out.

The Acer ConceptD 7 | ConceptD 7 Pro is an innocuous-looking powerhouse, designed to power real-time 6K RED video editing and rendering, while looking compact and stylish!

Here’s a quick look at the ConceptD 7 | ConceptD 7 Pro creator laptop!

 

Acer ConceptD 7 | ConceptD 7 Pro for 6K RED Video Editing!

The Acer ConceptD 7 and ConceptD 7 Pro boast a 15.6-inch PANTONE-validated IPS display with a 4K UHD resolution. It naturally covers 100% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut, with colour accuracy of Delta E <2.

They are both powered by the new 9th Gen Intel Core i7 mobile processor, and differ only in their graphics processor.

The Pro model is available with either Quadro RTX 5000 or Quadro RTX 3000 graphics. The non-Pro model is available with either GeForce RTX 2080 or GeForce RTX 2060 graphics.

Even with all that computing power, they are both just 17.9 mm (0.7 inch) thick and weigh just 2.1 kg (4.63 lbs)!

Thanks to their Thunderbolt 3 and Mini DP ports, you can hook them up to three external displays. They also boast Killer DoubleShot Pro for strong and reliable WiFi connectivity.

Both Pro and non-Pro models are kept cool by a 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fan. It features very thin 0.1 mm fan blades with a serrated edge, winglets along the top and bottom, as well as a curved fin along the inner portion of each blade. Acer claims this increases airflow by up to 45%!

To keep things quiet though, the AeroBlade 3D fan has a noise reduction mechanism that keeps it down to less than 40 dB – as quiet as a library!

How do the Pro and non-Pro models differ? Only in aspect – the Pro model uses a Quadro RTX 5000 / RTX 3000, while the non-Pro model uses a GeForce RTX 2080 / RTX 2060.

Acer Predator Helios 700 Gaming Laptop Preview!

Earlier this month, Acer unveiled the Predator Helios 700 gaming laptop, with its unique HyperDrift keyboard.

In this preview, we will share with you its key features, and our hands-on video tour of the Acer Predator Helios 700!

 

Acer Predator Helios 700 : An Introduction

The 2019 Acer Predator Helios 700 is designed to offer the ultimate gaming experience, with a large 17.3-inch IPS display, and the latest Intel Core i9-9980HK processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics.

Its display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, with a 144 Hz refresh rate and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC.

It comes with 32 GB DDR4 memory (upgradable to 64 GB), and two 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration. But you can also add a separate HDD for additional storage.

The Predator Helios 700 boasts a unique HyperDrift keyboard that increases airflow by up to 18.9% through the top of the laptop.

The cooling system features two 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans that maximise airflow while minimising noise. Part of it can be seen through the Gorilla Glass panel in the centre.

Pulling out the HyperDrift keyboard also extends a wrist rest, and makes it easier for you to use the keyboard, which incidentally has anti-ghosting capability, and per-key RGB lighting.

The HyperDrift keyboard also improves ergonomics, with a desktop-like feel. In addition, it comes with per-key RGB lighting, anti-ghosting and MagForce WASD keys.

The MagForce keys use analog-like linear switches that trigger actuation on initial press, and increase up to 100% to give players more precise movements in game.

Its large Precision Touchpad is outlined with blue lighting, and features two discrete mouse buttons. Its 17.3-inch IPS display is not only large, it supports a 144 Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC.

Thanks to its super-thin bezels, it has a 14-inch Full HD display with an impressive 92% screen-to-body ratio. This touch display boasts a wide colour gamut of 100% sRGB / 72% NTSC, and is protected by Gorilla Glass 6.

The new Swift 7 is powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core processor with 8 GB RAM and an NVMe PCIe SSD. And it comes with two USB Type C Gen 2 ports, and Gigabit WiFi with 2×2 MIMO technology.

It has a push-to-open camera that is hidden just above the keyboard, with a power button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor. To ensure durability, its touchpad is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
