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

In late August past year, at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Acer showed me a pretty insane gaming laptop, with a hinge that enables you to angle its screen or even turn it away from you.

During the first day of CES 2019, Acer has released three new laptops which are the all-new Swift 7, a new convertible Predator Triton 900 as well as its first Chromebook 315 Powered by Versatile AMD A-Series Processors with Radeon Graphics.

The specs are strong: An Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16/32GB of RAM, 1TB SSD, and an Nvidia RTX2080 graphics card with 8GB of RAM. Boasting a 4K panel with Nvidia's G-Sync technology, you can expect smooth image rendering thanks to the display synchronizing with the GPU. For League of Legends fans, Acer also offers Predator RGB Assault - a smartphone app that shows pre-defined keyboard lighting effects that can be further customized as per the abilities of their champion.

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. Tablet mode allows the screen to lay nearly completely flat over the keyboard while Stand mode flips the screen back from standard laptop mode. However, it is still reasonably compact for the hardware it contains. With support for up to 32 GB DDR4 memory and NVMe PCIe RAID 0 SSDs, not to mention Waves Maxx audio and Waves Nx head tracking for a realistic 3D audio experience, this laptop is clearly earmarked for gaming and more. Display options are the biggest change.

Humble Store Adding Individual Downloads And DLC For Nintendo Systems
However, there's a big asterisk to come with it, as these titles are only available through the Humble Store in the United States. Humble's storefront now sells some of the most popular first-party Nintendo titles, including Super Smash Bros.

Pricing on the Triton 500 starts at $1,799 for the RTX 2060 model. Back then, Acer remained mum about the specs of the device, but we did get to know that it will be sporting a mobile NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU.

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.

If this massive machine catches your fancy, you have a few months until March to save your pennies as the Acer Predator Triton 900 comes at a hefty price tag of $3,999 and will be available in North America.
