Acer is giving some neat new things in the Acer Predator 15 (2017) like Killer double shot pro feature that enables the user to split their bandwidth requirement over Wi-Fi and Ethernet. The ability to swap the DVD drive with an additional fan is relevant for a gaming machine. Which makes issues like overheating evaporate. However, competitors like Asus and MSI are giving slightly better specs at lesser price. This one retails for Rs 1,59,990 which we feel can hurt Acer's market.

Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
