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.
It looks like Acer was waiting for Nvidia Turing graphics to make their way to laptops, as we finally have the specs. It doesn't take away from its power, though, because it, too, can house an 8th-gen Intel Core i7 and a graphics card up to the same NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q design.
Next, the Predator Triton 500 is equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070/2060 GPU! But it's really that Predator Triton 900 that takes the cake with a new take on a convertible gaming laptop. "The notebook's 17.3" 4K IPS display uses a specialized CNC-machined Ezel Aero hinge that connects to the center of the display on its left and right sides.

There are several flu symptoms to look out and may include muscle aches, fatigue, headache, dry cough and a sore throat. With the number of flu cases on the rise, so are the number of deaths from the flu in children, now at 13.
The two gaming laptops also feature Intel's Core i7- 8750H CPU platform and NVMe PCIe SSD drives for the fastest possible data transfer speeds. There is audio by Waves with Waves Maxx audio system.
To elevate the gaming experience further, you can also use an Xbox One controller in place of a mouse and keyboard to play games as the Predator Triton 900 comes with an Xbox wireless receiver. It also shrinks the screen down to 15.6 inches, with a 144Hz refresh rate. For the fully loaded configuration, a Triton 500 will go for around $2,999.
Pricing on the Triton 500 starts at $1,799 for the RTX 2060 model.
Additionally, the laptop supports 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D metal fans for an increase in airflow by 45% and the Coolboost technology to avoid overheating during high usage. Acer didn't disclose the weight of the Predator Triton 700, but it is 23.75mm thin.
Seeing as gaming and computing life have extended beyond the computers themselves, Acer will also be pushing out a PredatorSense mobile app that will let users control their Predator PCs, from overclocking to fans to lighting, from their smartphones.
As for the Predator Titan 900, will become available starting in March with a starting price of $3,999. The Predator Triton 500 has been priced at $1,799 (roughly Rs. 1,27,000) and will be available in North America, Europe, Middle East, and Africa in February and China in January.
