Slim and light Predator Triton 300: The perfect balance of performance and size
The Predator Triton 300 is the latest addition to the Triton line of thin laptops that run on Windows 10. Weighting only 2.3kg, it gives you the performance and support you need in a slim aluminum enclosure at a great price. The design is typical of the Predator lineup: Triton 300 in matte black with blue backlighting.
Powerful processor up to 9th generation Intel® Core™ i7 works in tandem with NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 graphics card and up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM at 2666Hz expandable to 32GB . For large game collections, it supports up to two PCIe NVMe SSDs of up to 1TB each in RAID 0 configuration and a hard drive of up to 2TB. And for fast data transfer and lag-free multiplayer gaming, the Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX 1650/Killer Ethernet NIC.
The bright 15.6-inch IPS display with maximum Full HD resolution and narrow bezel support a refresh rate of 144Hz and a response time of just 3ms. It makes gaming graphics look crisp and realistic, and colors are vibrant. Audio is handled by Waves Nx® technology, which uses physical modeling to deliver the best sound quality, creating the perfect virtual space for the user.
The keyboard has multiple RGB backlight zones, plus buttons to enable Turbo overclocking and PredatorSense software. In addition, special keys, cursor “arrows” and WASD have a special concave shape and made transparent to make it easier for the user to find them.
The Predator Triton 300, like other Predator notebooks, has a powerful cooling system, including dual bladed-metal fans with 4th generation AeroBlade™ technology CoolBoost™ support and strategically placed air intakes and vents.

Predator Triton 500 notebook: Now available in 300Hz refresh rate version
The Predator Triton 500 is a powerful gaming notebook with a thickness of just 17.9 mm and a weight of 2.1 kg, and now has an incredible refresh rate of 300 Hz! 15.6-inch Full HD screen. It also has a strong all-metal frame and narrow bezels around the screen — just 6.3 mm — for an 81% ratio of cover to screen area. Thin and slim, the Triton 500 fits easily into a backpack or briefcase, but when you turn it on, you’re holding a powerful gaming notebook with up to the latest Intel Core i7 9th gen processor.
Predator Thronos Air cockpit for an immersive gaming experience
Predator Thronos Air, Acer’s newest gaming chair, is more like a gaming lair. It consists of the chair itself, module table and bracket for monitors – all structural elements are made of steel. A comfortable semi-enclosed “cockpit” for the gamer that is ideal for 100% immersion gaming and entertainment. In doing so, the soft turquoise backlight gives enough light for comfortable playing, but does not distract the user.
The backrest can be tilted at different angles up to 130 degrees inside and 180 degrees outside the cockpit for the most comfortable position. The chair even supports a massage function, so gamers can relax after or during an intense gaming session. Modular table consists of adjustable stands for keyboard and mouse, so the user can comfortably reach them in any position on the chair, and a footrest to help you get even more comfortable.

The monitor bracket lets you mount up to three devices at once, and you can adjust its height with a knob conveniently located right under the center monitor stand. In addition, the user will be able to place a camera above the central monitor, which will allow you to easily broadcast live on his channel on YouTube, Twitch or Mixer.
To keep the gamer neatly organized, there is a special platform behind the chair that provides enough space even for a powerful gaming PC, and a cable management system helps “hide” all the cords and wires. Acer also offers plenty of advanced customization and adjustments for the chair, including seat stabilizer to help prevent the chair from moving during gaming sessions, cup and headset holders, USB hub and camera.
