CES 2019: Acer Predator Triton 900, Predator Triton 500 gaming laptops launched

Both gaming notebooks come with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 GPU which features latest-gen real-time ray tracing capabilities, as well as ultra-fast GDDR6 memory. As such, we're relieved to see Acer take a fresh approach with the Predator Triton 900, whose touchpad sits to the right of the keyboard, remedying the fatal design flaw of its predecessor.

Moreover, "The Predator Triton 900'sone-of-a-kind flipping screen allows for multiple gaming scenarios and better ergonomics, while the Triton 500 offers superb gaming performance in a slimmer, all-metal body for gamers on the go", also said Hou.

Acer Predator Triton 500 will be made available in North America and EMEA in February at $1,799 (approximately Rs 1,25,000) and 1,999 Euros (approximately Rs 1,60,000), respectively.

Back at IFA 2018, we were impressed that Acer had found a way to create a convertible 17-inch gaming laptop. It offer up to 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, NVMe PCIe RAID 0 SSDs, and up to 32GB DDR4 memory.

Acer has unveiled three new products at the CES 2019.

Apple, which does not maintain a regular presence at CES , did not immediately return FOX Business' request for comment. It's a clever play on the iconic slogan "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas".

The Triton 500 features a 15.6-inch IPS display with a 144Hz refresh rate and starts at a much more manageable $1799 price tag.

For those that may not be completely sold on PC gaming or just really enjoy the feel of a controller in hand, an Xbox wireless receiver is included so that games on Windows 10 can be played with an Xbox controller. The Predator Triton 500 is the thinner of the two systems at 17.9mm, and it weighs just 4.6lbs. We were able to snag some hands-on time with the more traditional-looking laptop of the two, the Triton 500.

One of the most interesting feature of these laptops is that they can be controlled with a smartphone with the company's PredatorSense mobile app. The app can control settings for overclocking, fan speeds, lighting, and audio modes. Additionally, users can view and set customized macro key sets for physical hotkeys. Prices for the Acer Predator Triton 900 will start from $3,999 and the system is expected to be available sometime around March 2019.

The Acer Predator Triton 900 will be available in the U.S. and Europe in March, starting at $3,999 (€4,199, about AU$5,650).
