Acer Predator Triton 700

 

Acer likes to produce headline-grabbing products. It launched the Predator 21 X curved gaming laptop last September at IFA in Berlin and was met with a mixture of amusement and astonishment, which was a sign of things to come.

Acer Predator Triton 700 review

 

This super-slim gaming laptop has a heart of glass

Great gaming performance ; Mechanical keyboard ; Solid screen

“just” 1080p ; Pretty useless trackpad ; Not cheap, is it?

A great high-performance, low-bulk gaming laptop. As long as you remember to bring a mouse

Acer Predator Triton 700 preview: A gaming great is born?

 

Gaming laptops are undergoing change: no longer do they need to be the size of a four-bedroom house to deliver considerable power, as the trimmed-down

Acer Predator Triton 700 review

 

An attractive desktop replacement that runs hot

Powerful GTX 1080 graphics ; 32GB of RAM ; Impressively thin ; Excellent keyboard

Extremely hot under load ; Excessive fan noise ; Just 1080p screen for price ; Poor audio performance

Ridiculously powerful and impressively thin, the Predator Triton 700 has no problems taking what you throw at it, but it gets almost too hot to touch under load and lacks features that key competitors offer for less.

Acer Predator Triton 700 review: Incredible performance in a slim chassis

 

Acer's streamlined Predator is the pinnacle of portable gaming

Stunning design and build quality ; Super-powered Nvidia Max-Q GTX 1080 GPU ; Excellent mechanical keyboard

Poor battery life ; Dull IPS display

It is, admittedly, expensive. Still, with prices constantly falling it won’t be long till we see laptops of this calibre becoming more affordable. Right now, £2,300 is what you’re going to have to fork out for the best, most versatile gaming laptop on...

Acer Predator Triton 700 review: A laptop that's too hot to handle

 

Acer's slim Triton 700 has the makings of a great slim gaming laptop, but plays hide-and-seek with its glass touchpad.

The Triton 700 fits a powerful Nvidia 1080 GPU into a slim frame. The mechanical keyboard is great, without being too bulky. More ports than you'd expect from a slim laptop.

The touchpad is poorly placed and gets too hot while gaming. No high-res or touchscreen options.

The Acer Triton 700 is an impressive slim gaming laptop, but its nontraditional touchpad makes it a tough sell for anything other than games.

Hands-on: Acer Predator Triton 700 review

 

A hands-on review with the Acer Predator Triton 700. A new gaming laptop with a see-through Gorilla Glass trackpad that's in the wrong place.

The Predator Triton 700 is a seriously impressive gaming laptop. However, while the window/trackpad might look cool and quirky it’s not ergonomic. Then there’s the fat price tag to contend with.

Acer Predator Triton 700 Gaming Laptop Review (Max-Q GTX 1080)

 

There was a time when the term 'gaming laptop' meant something big, fat and often just totally ugly. A fabulous laptop ruined by the trackpad position (above the keyboard!) and the battery life.

Attractive and sturdy body.

The trackpad is positioned above the keyboard – why?

The trackpad really takes the shine off what is an otherwise excellent gaming laptop. As it is, we would advise buyer caution given the trackpad really diminishes the overall experience. Battery life is also not great.

Acer Predator Triton 700 Max-Q Gaming Laptop Review

 

Outstanding metal build quality ; Mechanical keyboard ; Glass touchpad ; Good synthetic and gaming performance ; Outstanding display contrast and saturation

Mediocre battery life ; Poor RGB balance, grayscale accuracy, and color accuracy ; Keyboard and touchpad are poorly placed ; Expensive for a GTX 1080 laptop

The Acer Predator Triton is a handsome laptop with some quirks many gamers will enjoy, like its mechanical keyboard and glass touchpad. However, these accoutrements incur an additional cost, driving the Triton's price higher than similarly configured...

Acer Predator Triton 700 review: A stunning gaming laptop with a terrible touchpad

 

The Acer Predator Triton 700 is one of the most impressive laptops ever, which makes its flaws even more disappointing.

Very thin and light for a gaming laptop ; Sleek, gorgeous design ; Superb gaming performance

Dismal battery life ; Terrible, awkwardly placed touchpad ; GTX 1080 Max-Q performs more like a GTX 1070

But Acer dropped the ball with the Predator Triton 700’s touchpad. It’s .
