  • Acer's Predator Triton 900 is a $4,000 gaming laptop with a crazy hinge

During the first day of CES 2019, Acer has released three new laptops which are the all-new Swift 7, a new convertible Predator Triton 900 as well as its first Chromebook 315 Powered by Versatile AMD A-Series Processors with Radeon Graphics.

"We are pushing the envelope on what a gaming notebook can be with designs that offer more uses while still packing in the computing power", stated Jerry Hou, Acer's Consumer Notebooks and IT Products Business.

It is a convertible gaming notebook that features a CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge. As such, we're relieved to see Acer take a fresh approach with the Predator Triton 900, whose touchpad sits to the right of the keyboard, remedying the fatal design flaw of its predecessor.

Special attention has been given to the Predator Triton 900 due to its one-of-a-kind flipping screen.

The Predator Triton 500 will be available in North America in February with prices starting at US$1,799; in EMEA in February, with prices starting at €1,999, and in China in January, with prices starting at ¥16,999. The device features NVIDIA's new Geforce RTX 2080 GPUs with Max-Q design, up to 8th gen Intel Core i7 processors, NVMe PCIe RAID 0 SSDs, up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, and promises to offer up to 8 hours of battery life. "The Predator Triton 500 is smaller than its Triton 700 counterpart and it uses a lower-res 15.6" 1080p IPS panel with a fast 144Hz refresh rate. The system supports NVIDIA's G-Sync technology for a smooth mobile gaming experience, and the system also has 16GB of memory and two 512GB NVMe PCI-E SSDs in a RAID-0 configuration.

Coming later this year will be the PredatorSense app for controlling Predator PCs from a smartphone. The laptop features 4K display powerful specs and costs $4000. Although it's barely one inch thick, the Predator Triton 900 looks a chunky piece of notebook hardware but its construction looks impressive. These include controlling the fan speed, lighting, audio modes and processor clock speeds.

The Predator Triton 900 is expected to launch in North America, China, and EMEA regions in March with prices starting at $4,000, €4,200, and ¥40,000, respectively.
