The Acer Predator 17’s design is definitely an eye-catching one. Putting aside aesthetics for a moment, one of the best words to describe the Acer Predator 17 is “massive”. This gaming laptop holds no limits when it comes to delivering the best performance and cooling possible, resulting in a massive gaming machine that has no friends with tiny café tables - this gaming laptop is more suited to being a desktop-replacement machine with its heavy weight and large footprint.
Design wise, the Acer Predator 17 is inspired by “intergalactic battlecruisers”, which can clearly be seen from the blocky hard angles and straight broad lines that make up this gaming laptop. The two large vents at the front and the long vent at the back of the laptop further accentuates its battlecruiser-inspired design. This is a machine that make most other laptops look incompetent with its aggressive accents (and the ever inevitable secondary-red colour).
The Acer Predator 17’s massive footprint and large thickness isn’t just a direct inspiration from science-fiction; it is designed that way to accommodate the powerful specifications it has and to properly cool the components down. Packed in the ostentatious case is a set of one of the hardest hitting specifications a gaming laptop could ever have.
The massive laptop is powered by the latest Intel Core i7 processors and the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics cards, providing gamers with a consistent level of performance throughout their intense gaming sessions or even when computing normal everyday tasks and programs. The large 17-inch display offers up to 4K resolution to create the most immersive gaming experience possible on a gaming laptop, and it is further enhanced with the Predator SoundPound 4.2 speaker system: four speakers and two subwoofers built-in the laptop with Dolby Audio for a superior audio experience.
The Acer Predator 17 is the gaming laptop for those who want the best possible performance in a gaming laptop. The Predator 17 also has superior cooling compared to other counterparts thanks to the Predator DustDefender, which can route dust away from the internals with its custom-tuned cooling fans; and the Predator FrostCore, which can be swapped out for with the DVD-ROM to install an additional cooling fan.
