Is Acer's Predator Thronos the most ridiculous gaming accessory ever made?

At first glance, the new Predator Triton 900 looks like your standard, chunky gaming laptop.

"Integrated with a Predator PC and triple Predator monitors plus gadgets, the Thronos becomes more than a gaming chair-it's a gamer's cave", Acer says.

Acer is mum on specs for now, but you can expect that unique display to pack a 4K touchscreen with NVIDIA G-Sync, which will cut down on screen tearing and frame stuttering. The usual suite of Acer display and sound enhancements are present.

The Predator XB273K is ideal for users who want to be engrossed in gaming worlds. The XB273K is also created to be easy on the eyes, featuring Acer VisionCare™-a suite of technologies that help protect eyes during longer gaming sessions. Like the Swift 5, the Swift 3 gets the latest 8th Gen Intel Core CPUs - either the Core i7-8565U, Core i5-8265U or Core i3-8145U - with up to 8GB of memory and up to 512GB of SSD storage.

The university in May reached a $500 million settlement with hundreds of women and girls who said they were assaulted by Nassar. MSU's current athletic director, Bill Beekman, said the rules of the NCAA and state law don't always overlap.

Acer VisionCare™ with Flickerless, BlueLightShield, ComfyView and low-dimming technologies make viewing more comfortable during long periods of gaming. It looks like the cockpit of an alien spaceship and will feel more at home in an arcade than in a living room.

All of the monitors listed here are due to release in Q4 2018, although that could change. Acer also announced an updated Swift 3 with a 14-inch display that is heading to the U.S.in November with a starting price of $799.99.

The IPS/1440p Nitro monitor will launch for $499 in the United States and €599 in EMEA. The TN/1440p Nitro monitor will cost $449 in the United States and €529 in EMEA.

The PC maker also showed off an upgraded version of is 14in Swift 5 laptops at IFA, which will be available in September from €999 equipped with Intel Core i7-8565U and i5-8265U CPUs, from September. The Swift 5 will also be made available in North America in January, 2019, starting at $1,099 (approximately Rs 77,700).
