Acer has recently launched the Predator Triton 700 gaming laptop. The company held a product launch event on the largest IMAX screen in the world, located in New York City. This super-thin new laptop is equipped with some unique features. When looking at it, any gamer would say that the laptop seems to be as any other gaming laptop.

Nevertheless, when opening it, you will see that it is not just a usual laptop. The touchpad and the keyboard switched places. Also, the oversized touchpad is transparent, allowing you to see the cooling components inside the laptop, namely the AeroBlade cooling fan. The new design was inspired by several transparent gaming desktops. Eric Ackerson, the market manager and senior product at Acer, stated that many gamers are thrilled to see transparent components.
The tech company wanted to design more transparent parts for the laptop, but the regulations of the US Federal Communications Commission imposed a limit on transparent components and had only allowed the touchpad. This touchpad is made of Gorilla Glass. For some players, this touchpad over the keyboard might be strange, and it may take them some time to get used to the change.
In the US, this laptop will sell for about US$2,999, while in Europe and Africa for €3,399
This might become a new trend in laptops from now on. The trackpad is equipped with multitouch features used by Windows 10, and it can be customized depending on the game. Given the location of the touchpad on the new Predator Triton 700, it would be pretty difficult for you to use your thumb. Nevertheless, while using one of your fingers on the touchpad, you can use your thumb on the keyboard.
The large touchpad makes it easier for you to move the pointer and this brings a lot of benefits when gaming. When playing a game, you will not need to struggle and squish your finger into the small touchpad on a normal laptop. The Acer Predator Triton 700 weights 2.6 kilograms and it’s 18.9 millimeters thick. Acer argues that this new laptop surpasses the performance of the 2016 Razer Blade laptop and other rivals.
The laptop features an HD display of 15.6 inches, being outfitted with up to 32GB of DDR4 DRAM and approximately 512GB of storage. However, the laptop is pretty pricey. In August, it will start being shipped being estimated to cost about US$2,999 in the US and €3,399 for the markets of Africa, Middle East, and Europe.
