I Flipped for Acer’s Convertible Gaming Laptop

Acer's Predator Triton 900 is a $4,000 gaming laptop with a crazy hinge

After Samsung and Asus' announcements, Acer has unveiled a curious $4,000 convertible laptop named the Predator Triton 900.

Unlike its competitors, the Acer Triton 900 also manages to keep a somewhat slim profile, coming in at.94 inches in thickness, which means it's easier to haul around. The maxed out variant of the notebook rocks Intel's hexa-core 8th Gen Core i7 processor with six cores, along with NVMe PCIe SSDs, NVIDIA'S new RTX 2080 GPU, and up to 32GB DDR4 memory. Given the high-end hardware packed into these notebooks, it should come as no surprise that they also carry exceedingly high price tags.

If you are looking for something smaller, the Triton 500 has a 15.6 in 1920x1080 IPS display that can run up to 144 Hz, and those models with the RTX 2080 Max-Q have support for G-Sync too.

The Predator Triton 900 is a "convertible" with a touchscreen design slotted into a hinge design you'd more likely find on an expensive airplane tray table than laptop.

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. The Triton 500 also uses a more conventional design, as it doesn't feature a tablet mode or a flippable display.

The movie awards season hit top gear yesterday when the Golden Globes , the entree to the Oscars, were awarded in Beverly Hills. Before being a viral meme on the red carpet, Kelleth Cuthbert starred in the Arkell's music video for "11:11" back in 2015.


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.

"We're excited that our new GeForce RTX 2080 GPU is helping Acer redefine gaming experiences on notebooks", said Kaustubh Sanghani, General Manager, GeForce OEM at NVIDIA. The Acer Predator Triton 900 featured an adjustable display that had the ability to flip into a number of different viewing modes by way of a special hinge that allowed the screen to flip into different positions. These include controlling the fan speed, lighting, audio modes and processor clock speeds.

At only 0.7 inches thick and tipping the scales at 4.6 pounds, the all-metal chassis contains excellent components. It will also enable users to view and set customised macro key sets for physical hotkeys.
