Acer Predator 15 and Predator 17 gaming notebooks now available for 1800 Euros
Acer has announced the availability of its newcover gaming series consisting of the Predator 15 (G9-591) and Predator 17. The notebooks were presented at IFA 2015 and will start at a hefty 1800 Euros. All images, details, and technical information on the Predator series can be found in our IFA overview.
The brand-new high-end gaming notebooks from Acer will sport up to a Core i7-6700HQ with GTX 980M or 970M graphics and up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM. The notebooks will don Black and Red coloring with LED designs to distinguish them from "regular" Ultrabooks or multimedia notebooks.
Outside of the CPU and GPU, the Predator series will have fast NVMe SSDs of up to 512 GB, USB 3.1 Type-C with Thunderbolt 3 support, and fast network connectivity with Killer DoubleShot Pro Ethernet and WiFi. The speakers will also be of higher quality than what Acer has been offering on its other notebooks.
The Predator series will face off directly against the renowned Asus ROG series, Alienware series, MSI G series, and Clevo barebones. It remains to be seen if Acer can match or exceed the excellent quality of these enthusiast-level gaming notebooks.
