The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE, there is a lot to like about this laptop. Clean and professional aesthetics, lots of high-performance ports, and a beautiful 16-inch display. I know the 12th gen is here but for gaming, it doesn’t really have that much difference when compared to the 11th gen. If I were to complain, I would pick on why they would pick the Core i9 and RTX 3080 110W. It makes the laptop more expensive for a small margin of performance. This laptop is best to go with i7 and RTX 3070 even if it is 110W. RM12,999 for i9 and 3080 is only for those who have extra to spare.

If money is no object, and performance is the absolute objective, then there’s simply no competition. A machine that’s greater than the sum of its parts. With premium components and its stunning build quality, it delivers remarkable gaming performance with ease, making it one of the fastest systems I’ve ever reviewed.

The Acer Predator Triton 500 SE is a solid do-it-all laptop but it's not the best overall gaming laptop in terms of performance and thermal management. Although it nails the basics, it's hard to recommend a product designed for gamers that drops the ball in these areas. Gamers need the best bang-for-the-buck for performance but also require good thermal management for long gaming sessions. It’s competition does better in those respects. However, there is a place for this laptop. If you dabble in gaming but perhaps do more photo or video editing, or are coding, this may be the right one for you. The Triton is relatively thin and light for a gaming laptop, making it easy to carry with you for everyday tasks and the occasional mobile gaming session It has an understated design that doesn’t stand out too much at work or at school, if that’s a concern. Its keyboard is nice to type on, and has a large, bright, high-res screen so coders and writers alike will find this pleasant to use for long work sessions.

Nonetheless, the 3060 (starting at $1749) and 3070 (starting at $1999) configurations are arguably the better value and where most people should end up shopping, so we’ll have to see how competitive this Triton 500 SE ends up once available in stores. Based on past experience and the little data available so far, I’d expect it to be aggressively priced in most regions. Anyway, that’s about it for now with this preview of the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE PT516-51s. I hope we can have the finalized review soon enough, and in the meantime, let me know what you think about this series and leave your comments below so I can go over them in the update.
