Acer Predator Thronos reimagines the PC gaming chair

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.
