We’re excited to bring you our second review from the sleek and styling Acer Predator range, the Predator 17 Gaming Laptop – and it’s a powerhouse! If you’re an avid gamer and on the move, this is the perfect tool for you.
The creators have thought of everything possible when building this machine to ensure the ultimate gaming experience. The Predator 17 boasts a 17” up to 4K screen (also available in a 15” option), 4 speakers, 2 subwoofers, 6th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980m GPU1 and Windows 10 Home.
Not only does it play well, it looks the part too. Aggressive accents and hard angles inspired by intergalactic battlecruisers grace the front while it’s business in the back with brilliantly designed air exhaust vents ensuring a bold look from any angle. The ProZone RGB keyboard lets you customise your machine with the multi-coloured backlight zones and 16 million colours to choose from.
The main attractions of the Predator 17 are its extreme cooling system and its ability to kill lag. Inject the cooler Master to keep performance up and heat down or swap in the FrostCore for those intense gaming sessions. Prioritise and optimise bandwidth with Killer DoubleShot Pro and choose which apps use your bandwidth. You can even split your internet requirements over wireless and wired connections at the same time. Impressive!

The swappable fan ensures performance while keeping cool.
