After NVIDIA announced on the CES RTX-powered laptops, Acer presented its first design and it's a joke: The Predator Triton 900 features a 17-inch 4K touchscreen that folds down on a boom hinge " Convertible ".
This unrestricted gaming notebook is packed with the top-of-the-line RTX 2080 GPU, coupled with Intel's latest generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32GB of RAM, a fixed-state drive in RAID 0 configuration and an integrated Xbox Wireless Controller module. The huge body is almost an inch thick, with a backlit keyboard at the front of the lower half (to better bring out the display) and a trackpad to the right for a more ergonomic use when playing when you have no mouse at hand.

A touch in the corner of the touchpad activates the 10-key mode for those who prefer their full-size keyboards. The integrated speakers are supplied by Waves Audio, and a clear window above the keyboard lets the user view the integrated liquid cooling system.
But the star of the show is the screen. In addition to the 4K resolution rated for NVIDIA's G-SYNC smoothing technology, it can fall back on itself. If you have the room, you can connect a full keyboard and a mouse directly in front of the laptop. This is not the conventional "convertible" form factor, but covers the same display options for laptops. Neat.
The Predator Triton 900 will be available in the US, Europe and China from March. It's not cheap: the MSRP starts at $ 4000 for the base configuration. Expect the price to rise even faster if you want the most powerful components.
If that's a bit rich for your blood, Acer also announced the more conventional Predator Triton 500. In addition, NVIDIA's new RTX GPUs and the company's Max-Q cooling technology were used to cram the 15-inch laptop to just 0.7 inches and 4.6 pounds. The notebook's smaller screen is 144 Hz faster, with G-SYNC. Acer says the case is made of metal and can be charged for up to 8 hours. The Predator Triton 500 will be launched earlier in February.
