Enthusiasts will love the deep metallic copper colored housing: the front side of the body has a drive bay that supports rewritable DVD and Blu-ray Disc reader.

Acer Predator 8
As the premium gaming device from Acer, the audacious Predator 8 is Acer’s – latest offering in the Android Tablet market already saturated. However, the Predator 8 is not just another Android tablet. The design is threatening enough to doubt whoever second-guesses its performance. The Predator color blast technology promises brilliant colors on his 8-inch Full HD screen (1920×1080).
In order to achieve maximum quality, the design of the Predator 8 is almost bezel-free. It is further reinforced with soft grip pads on the back. The storage capacity can be expanded up to 128GB thanks to Micro SD card support. The tablet is on Android 5.1 lollipop. The battery life is relatively short, considering the ultimate gaming device as it is hyped. With a 5MP camera on the back as well as a 3 MP camera on the front, it nevertheless remains a fully functional tablet.
The Acer Predator 8 has a really nice immersive feel when it comes to games to play, and this is in part due to the haptic feedback through the integrated haptic motor. We could feel when the car was “upgraded” and also if you crashed. It is a very similar experience with the force feedback on the PlayStation 4 controllers, albeit slightly down and not quite as intelligent tinted.

Acer Predator 17G9
Great performance, comfortable keyboard, beautiful display, but how loud is this Predator’s growl? Very good, in fact, the sound is fantastic, with strong and solid bass. Under the frame of the notebook, thanks to the integrated 4.2 sound, we find two subwoofers. You frenetically watch combat and terrific animated short films, and whether movies or games, you can easily feel, but not overly disturbing vibrations caused by the keyboard.

Acer Predator Triton 700
The Acer Predator Triton 700 is so light and beautiful as it is powerful. Essentially, a high-end gaming laptop designed to strike a balance between functions and balance. From afar, it is easy to be confused with the Triton 700 for a generic model in the Acer Predator series. The Acer Predator Triton 700 is similar to the Predator 21 X, including a teal-on-black color scheme. It is striking, though, the keyboard sits on the bottom of the laptops. Where the trackpad and palm rest are normal.
The Keyboard essentially sits flush with the front edge of the notebook, meaning there is no palm rest. The island-style, backlit buttons to obtain the full width of the Laptop screen is 15.6-inch chassis; this is a lot of space. The most interesting thing about the design is the huge piece of Gorilla Glass, located above the keyboard. In this way, you can see the internals of the laptop, including the aero blade 3D fan and five heat pipes.
It looks pretty sweet, reminiscent of the window panels on Gaming Desktops. However, it was not necessary, since the glass can also be used as a touchpad. While the 21-inch 21 X was a massive notebook with a weight of more than 8 kg, the 15.6-inch Triton 700 is relatively easy. Tipping the scales at 2.6kg and slipping into an 18.9 mm thick housing.
The laptop screen is a full HD IPS panel. It looks great with colors on a glare-reducing screen alive and well represented, even though it was a little disappointing, that it is not a 1440p or Ultra HD display. The specs, there is an HD webcam, Killer Wireless 2×2 11 ac wireless solution, and a whole range of ports for input and output. If gaming people were turned away due to the size and weight, the wait is over. Lightweight gaming laptops are here, and they are better than expected.
