Acer's Ultrathin Gaming Laptop

Acer’s Triton 700 is a super thin, metal gaming laptop that has been announced since April, but without any specs.

Alongside NVIDIA announcing they’re new Max-Q program with OEMs in an attempt to optimise laptops for efficiency and increase in power, Acer has announced that the Triton 700 seems to be the first member of this new program. It packs a GTX 1080 into a chassis less than 2 cm thick, an astounding 1.6mm thicker than that of the MacBook Air.


The specs are quite a treat:

  • Weight: 2.6kg
  • Storage: two SSD Raid 0
  • RAM: 32GBs DDR4 2400mhz
  • Processor: Kaby Lake i7 Processors (Standard Voltage)
  • Price: From USD$2 999
  • Ports: Thunderbolt 3.0,
    Two USB 3.0,
    USB 2.0,
    Ethernet,
    Display Port,
    HDMI
  • GPU: Overclockable NVIDIA GTX 1080
  • Display: 15.6" IPS 1080P G-SYNC
  • Thickness: 18.9mm
  • Availability: August 2017

While this laptop promises to be a bastion of computing, the unconventional positioning of the trackpad is bound to create some controversy around its ergonomics.

There’s no question that the specs are great but is the starting price enough to deter you? Especially considering no one knows how much of these specs will be included in the starting model. We’ll have to wait until August to find out for certain.
