I don’t think people would disagree with me when I say that the wearable market isn’t in the best shape. Just look at Pebble. Or Fitbit. Even Moto‘s ditched the smart wearable market because the demand just isn’t there.

Acer tackles the portable gaming market with the powerful Predator Triton 700

Posted:  April 28, 2017   By:    3 comments   

I’m a sucker for thin yet powerful devices. Super thin phones? My jam. Thin ultrabooks? Also my jam. Thin gaming laptops? Absolutely my jam. But thin and powerful devices often come with big compromises, especially when it comes to thermals.
