Acer Predator Triton 700, Acer Gaming Laptop – Acer announced their new Triton 700 series gaming laptops on April 27 in New York City. At just 18mm thin Acer claims it’s the fastest gaming laptop around netting a 17,000 score on 3DMark besting the competition by significant margins.
We got some hands-on time yesterday with the Triton 700, and it’s quite impressive. It’s not just the radical cooling solutions that let the Triton 700 hit high-performance marks, but some crazy design choices too.
For instance, there is the weird trackpad above the keyboard thing, which Acer tried years ago with the Aspire R7. This time around, however, it’s see-through, which is a unique twist.

In hand, the laptop is not light, but it is quite thin, and the all-metal chassis felt high quality.
The mechanical keyboard is also a nice and feels like the Razer Blade Pro.
Availability starts in August with pricing at $2,999 (€3,399). We’ll try to get a review unit to see if Acer has the chops to compete with Razer.
