Predator. A menacing word that describes a creature that preys on others in its specific food chain. In gaming, it refers to Acer’s line of hardcore gaming gear designed, no doubt, with a similar concept in mind: To dominate the competition.
But, with Acer‘s latest Predator launches at their Global Press Conference event last week in New York, the gaming line seems to have taken a peculiar turn. A turn that might cause some to question if the Predator was starting to become the prey.
Launched at [email protected] earlier today, Acer’s latest mid-range offering not only has a rather odd name (that would sound totally at home at the shampoo aisle) but also a gigantic battery that apparently keeps fresh for up to two days.
About a year since they released their first wave of Predator devices, Acer has now announced a brand new gaming laptop, the Acer Predator 17X and portable gaming rig, the Predator G1. Best part? both devices are VR ready and can support the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, OSVR and StarVR right out of the box.
The [email protected] event in New York saw the launch of a bunch of new portable devices designed for the busy worker on the go all the way to those looking for hardcore gaming performance. Of the devices launched are the Acer Switch Alpha 12 2-in-1 PC, the rather skinny Acer Aspire S13 and the tough Chromebook 14 for Work.
