Acer's New Gaming Laptop Comes With a Crazy Hinge

The Predator Triton 900's 17-inch 4K IPS display is mounted on what Acer has dubbed its "Ezel Aero Hinge", which allows it to be flipped, extended, or reclined on the two arms extending from the sides on the laptop's base. It has the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU, a 4K display with NVIDIA G-Sync, Intel's latest 8th gen Core i7 H-Series processors, NVMe PCIe RAID 0 SSDs, and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM.

Bottom line: Form factor is what sets aside Acer's Predator Triton 900 from anything else.

Gamers who want a portable and more affordable option, Acer has launched Predator Triton 500. Users can switch between four usage modes: Display mode for sharing the screen with friends during gaming sessions, Ezel mode for playing games on the touch screen, notebook mode for traditional gaming scenarios, and stand mode - effectively turning the Triton 900 into a tablet for gaming or using creator tools.

If that weren't enough, the company is also launching the Triton 500, an all-metal 15-inch gaming laptop available in February, starting at $1,799.

CES is upon us and it's raining gaming laptops. The notebook also comes equipped with an Xbox wireless receiver to allow users to play PC games on Windows 10 with an Xbox controller.

Nasukawa offers positive response to McGregor callout
McGregor is now on a losing streak with back-to-back losses to Mayweather in the boxing ring and Nurmagomedov in the Octagon. Mayweather made easy work of Tenshin Nasukawa, knocking him down several times before the ref steps in to stop the fight.

For surround sound audio experience, the laptop features Waves Maxx and Waves Nx technology with head tracking.

Design-wise, The Triton 500 looks a lot like its bigger brother but without the hinge and with the trackpad positioned conventionally, below the keyboard, it's basically an ordinary, yet powerful laptop.

On the inside, the Predator Triton 900 comes with Intel's 8th-gen Core i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and 1TB SSD storage. Acer intends to release a smartphone app that it is calling PredatorSense later this year, which will make it possible for you to adjust the lights, audio, and fans on the system. Despite packing all that hardware, the Predator Triton 900 manages to maintain a relatively slim profile at 23.75 mm (0.94 inches).

If this massive unit strikes your fancy, you have a few months to save some cash - Acer says it'll be available in North America starting in March.
