Acer Predator Triton 500 review: A solid and sleek 15-inch gaming machine

By Koh Wanzi - 1 Jul 2019
Launch SRP: S$3198

Introduction

Acer Predator Triton 500

Acer goes thin and light

Acer is stepping up its game with its Predator Triton series of gaming laptops. The Predator Triton 700 eschewed caution for a bold design that featured a see-through glass trackpad above the keyboard. It also packed in top-end specifications and an excellent mechanical keyboard, and the main drawback was the fact that the trackpad location just wasn't very practical. 

The Predator Triton 500 follows a more conventional design, but it also feels more premium than Acer's other Predator Helios and Nitro laptops. For starters, the all-metal design is reassuringly solid, and it also features a relatively slim and light build that should make it quite attractive for those looking for a portable gaming notebook.

Here's an overview of its specifications:

  • 15.6-inch 1,920 x 1,080-pixel 144Hz IPS display
  • Intel Core i7-9750H processor
  • 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q
  • 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD
  • 84Wh battery
  • 358.5 x 255 x 17.9mm
  • 2kg

The above will cost you S$3,198, which is no small amount of money. Do you want the Triton 500 for your next gaming laptop? Read on to find out.
