If you’re worried that the monster laptop might have a bulky build, you’ll be glad to know that it only weighs 2.1KG and 17.9mm thin. It wouldn’t be too difficult if you plan to bring this laptop around in your backpack.

It wouldn’t be a good gaming laptop without a decent screen, right? The Predator Triton 500 boasts a narrow-bezel design, along with a 15.6-inch FullHD IPS display with Acer ComfyView LED-backlit TFT LCD, which supports up to 144Hz and 3ms Overdrive response time. Aside from that, it can be hooked into a few extra displays via HDMI 2.0, Mini DisplayPort or USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port.

In the cooling department, the Predator Triton 500 will pack the 4th Gen Aeroblade 3D fan, which has 59 0.1mm bionic blades. Comparing to normal fans, you can expect a 45% improvement in airflow and 35% less noise.
