Reviews for the Acer Predator 17X GX-791-750T

80% This gaming laptop packs attitude and speed
Source: PC World English
Overall, I’m pretty pleased with the Predator 17X. It hangs right with the competition in performance and its easy-peasy 4GHz overclock ramps up performance nicely. Its fan acoustics are downright impressive, too. At stock speeds, this laptop doesn’t get annoyingly loud, and only with the CPU and GPU overclocked do the fans become noticeable. I can’t say the same for the Predator 17, which was loud under most loads.

The Acer Predator 17, when we reviewed it last year, won our editor’s choice award. It remains our favorite gaming laptop. The Acer Predator 17 X harnesses many of the same advantages. It’s attractive, well-built, enjoyable to use on a day-to-day basis, and more portable than you’d expect, given the hardware.

Acer Predator 17X (GX-791) review – desktop-like experience on a whole new level
Source: Laptop Media English
However, the Predator 17X offers a desktop-like gaming experience, which other competing notebooks rarely do. It packs an outstanding cooling system that supports the Core i7-6820HK and GTX 980 while utilizing their full potential via overclocking. Unfortunately, there’s one downside in all of this and it can be considered as a big one for some users. The Predator 17X doesn’t have an iGPU (no Intel HD Graphics 530 inside the Core i7-6820HK) so this can mean only one thing – reduced battery life. If you recall, the standard version of the Predator 17 offered more than satisfying battery runtimes with the same 88.8Wh unit.

Desktop-like experience on a whole new level
Source: Laptop Media English
The Predator 17X is a much better version of the standard Predator 17 configuration in every way possible. But this, of course, comes at a price… a very big one. While the 17X retains that rigid and subjectively good looking chassis, it’s considerably heavier and bulkier. Still, we can’t miss mentioning the updated keyboard and touchpad RGB LED backlight, which is now programmable to better serve your taste.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M:

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
6820HK: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


83.33%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
