Acer’s Predator Triton 700 lands in South AfricaBy Ryan Noik 4 December 2017 | Categories: news
Acer’s Predator Triton 700, which aims to make high performance gaming portable and accessible, is now available locally. The gaming notebook boasts a 7th Gen Intel Core i7, Backlit, RGB mechanical keyboard and PredatorSense Control that enables users to customise their gaming experience from one place. It is furthermore also Virtual Reality (VR) ready.
According to Acer Africa though, the gaming notebook is intended to be used by business professionals and gamers alike, who want high performance but portability in one machine.
The company pointed out that gaming notebooks are traditionally bulky and cumbersome to transport. However, it believes the Predator Triton bucks this trend, sporting a chassis that is only 18.9 mm in width. The challenge with gaming notebooks has always been how it deals with the heat generated by high performance processors and graphics cards, without making a machine overly bulky or heavy. Acer’s solution has been to implement ultrathin, metal-finned AeroBlade 3D fans that, it explains, enabled it to make a thin gaming notebook possible without sacrificing graphics.
While no doubt this sounds appealing to avid gamers who are also professionals, the only caveat is the price – at R38 000 (available from Loot) it’s not cheap.
