If you really want a full on performance gaming laptop, look no further. The Acer Predator Triton 500 has everything you need to power through basically any AAA game out there. And at 144Hz, your experience is going to be buttery smooth.
Not only does it have an incredible refresh rate, but it’s response time is only 3ms; perfect for any fast paced game where every frame counts.
Even at a discount it’s a little on the pricey side, but honestly you get what you pay for. Whats so impressive is how they managed to squeeze in a RTX 2060 in such a thin and lightweight laptop. Of course with a GPU like that you can easily run your games at a high framerate to match the monitor.
The CPU isn’t exactly lacking either though. A great GPU coupled with a 9th Gen Intel i7-9750H can handle almost anything you could throw at it.
As with any gaming laptop, you’ll most likely be running into power issues. Yes it has a 5400mAh battery, but when you’re burning through Borderlands 3 you’ll burn through your battery in no time. It also comes pre-installed with bloatware (As you can unfortunately expect from any pre-configured OS) so have a fresh install ready or be prepared to cut through all the extras.
Something that isn’t quite a deal breaker or anything but still could be a bit annoying is the keyboard. Yes it’s beautiful, nice LEDs and color combos, but the numberpad is built into the keyboard.
I never realize how much I use it till I don’t have it, and I can’t imagine having to hold down the function button just to use it. As I said, not a deal breaker as it is a gaming laptop and not an abacus9000.
Keep in mind, if you’re planning on gaming on ultra settings, we highly recommend if you’re looking to upgrade to a future-proof performance gaming laptop. If taken care of, the first thing to probably go is the battery like most laptops where 2 years or so in and the battery just can’t hang anymore.
There’s always a chance of some obscure component going bad but unlikely. This laptop would hold your gaming capabilities well into the future.
