You can’t have your cake and eat it too. For the most part, life is a barter trade where luxury demands hard work, perfection necessitates dedication, and power requires sacrifice. It’s a humbling principle that basically reminds you that you can’t have it both ways.
This is primarily the reason why purebred high-end gaming laptops never really interested me. Sure, they had all the power in the world but because of these high-powered components, the laptops needed to be enormous so those components could breathe.
There was no such thing as a no-compromise gaming laptop that was also super portable. Well, at least I didn’t think there was until I saw the Acer Predator Triton 700.

As a tech enthusiast, you have got to love Acer sometimes. Not because they always make the best products, but because they have the balls to take the leap and do what they want to do regardless of the circumstances. Last year, they gave us the absolutely bonkers Predator 21X.
This year they decided to cram most of that craziness into a chassis that’s thinner than 2cm. It’s called the Predator Triton 700 and starting today, you can pick one up for less than you’d expect.

If you’ve been looking for a gaming laptop, you’re in luck because it’s gaming laptop season. Hot on the heels of HP’s Omen and a little after Lenovo’s Legion, Acer‘s throwing its hat in the ring with two brand new gaming laptops that sit firmly in the budget and midrange gaming category.
“Harga satu Proton Saga full spec.”
That was, I think, the funniest comment I read when I published this post about the Acer Predator 21 X arriving in Malaysia. And that’s a fair point to him because no laptop should rival the price of a car. That’s insane.
Then again, have you seen the Predator 21 X? It’s no laptop. It’s a monstrous beast that’s designed to smash every puny device out there that wants to call itself a laptop, and it probably could (quite literally).
But, since only 300 will ever be made (each one made to order), there was really only one burning question on my mind: What’s it like to unbox? Good news is, Acer Malaysia invited us down to their offices to find out.
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.
So, imagine my excitement when Acer announced their brand new Predator Triton 700 gaming laptop that’s less than 2cm thick yet supposedly doesn’t suffer from thermal throttling.
Acer Malaysia launched three brand new monitors today. Two of them are targetted at gamers and come with G-Sync and Free Sync. The third, however, is perhaps even more interesting as it’s a 4K UHD 43-inch monitor that’s priced at RM2,299.
Then, Acer took things up a notch (wait, I guess they took it down a notch) when they released the Swift 7 — the new ‘world’s thinnest laptop” and the first to bring a laptop’s thickness down below 1cm. But all that thinness comes with a price. RM4,999 to be precise. Yowza.
We have seen a couple insane gaming laptops that are obsessed of delivering desktop gaming performance. At IFA 2016, Acer has just introduced a gaming laptop of epic proportions with its new Predator 21 X. This is Acer’s new flagship gaming laptop and it comes with a massive curved 21″ display.
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.
