    The screen tilt... that's a beautiful design! Was wondering where the touch pad was... until that part lighted up :-) :+1:

    When I have more information I'll share it in the Community.  You can also follow our social media channels for the latest info ;)

    What are your thoughts on the visuals?  I'll pass them on to our team.

    That's what I thought when I first saw the Predator Triton 700.  After a couple of minutes of retraining your muscle memory you get used to the location of the touchpad :+1:  Now I would just bring the screen closer and use touch instead :D

    The rotating screen, mostly. But it could very well be just the need to adjust to a new design philosophy. I would check the strength of the two arms that keep the screen in place, but i am sure that the engineers have already done the necessary tests.

    Perhaps it si simply that i don't feel or see the need for a display that you can move in that way. For instance when you rotate the display so that it is on the "back", i thought that it might have been to use an external keyboard and mouse and having the screen the nearest possible to you... but if you use it in that position you also have the heat exhausts that shoot hot air directly towards that external mouse and keyboard.

    Moreover, if i am using an external keyboard i find it more than possible that i am also using an external monitor.

    But mine is really more nitpicking than else. I have a Triton 700 and i am in love with it... if not for the slightly higher than comfortable thermals.

    Very interesting..! I didn't even think of exhaust direction when the screen is flipped!

    Overall the innovating steps Acer is making is quite impressive. I would like to see however a more detailed software control for the fans (such as a temp/rpm fan curve setting).
    The custom fan setting shows its very possible even with previously released systems, however Acer's custom hardware make it impossible to control with a software such as "speed fan" which is installed on all my other systems.

    One of the most alluring features of MSI laptops (even though they perform poorly) is the dragon center which allows additional fan control and additional fan control presets.

    This is also something Acer could very easily add... as Ive had the privilage of playing with the Helios 300 SE model which includes an additional auto fan setting (coolboost/normal/silent)

    I think adding such features and include even older owers of Predator models with the update would go a VERY long way in terms of overall appreciation of current owners as well as show previous gen owners they are not forgotten.

    I run a FB page with 3800+ Predator owners and most of them purchased the Helios 300 due to its price and power. Including them (and other generations) in the loop on these innovations would secure a solid base of loyal owners.
    Something thats important since most owners purchased the Helios with money that took a while to save up.

    P.S. I own a Helios 300, Predator 17 and a Helios 500.

    we laptop enthusiast despise BGA laptop that you can't upgrade down the road. we got p870dm or tm that can use desktop cpu can upgrade to 9900k intel latest 8 core CPU and use latest GPU and possibly upgrade GPU 1-2 years down the road, these laptops can't and all dead, it really is a shame. cool design, but just creates a dead end laptop.

    This actually works in my favor, cos i am more used to having mouse to right of my keyboard :-) So a huge +10000 from me on that design.

    Thank you for the feedback, @Skree! I now see your point.  I always use my laptops with an external mouse (and keyboard whenever possible) and always elevated so I didn’t think about the exhaust now being in the front.  And hey, it may feel like nitpicking but you may not be alone in this.  I’ll forward your feedback to our design team :)

    Thank you for your support and the feedback.  I’ll pass on your temperature/RPM fan curve suggestions forward!

    Acer always strives to bring the latest in technology, and while the pace of innovation in the field of computer technology is quite fast, a two year old unit can hardly be considered “dead” because it is not possible to upgrade the CPU or GPU.  We have been improving on upgradability by adding quick access doors to drives and RAM slots.

    Exhaust in the front? Wait... from the impression I got, they were more like intakes, isn't it? Or was I mistaken there? For... if it was actually the exhaust towards the front, or even the first half of sides, it would literally kill the deal for many... cos that's the place mouse tends to sit and the exhaust would only make using mouse uncomfortable.

    Oooo nice @Red-Sand for the new shiny ACE badge, noticed it just now.

    I love the concept and all, but I’m more concerned on pricing and store availability.

    I like that they designed the hinges themselves. Will improve longevity.

    I don't know I think I prefer the Predator 700's design. Also I value lighter weight and thinner bezels over a screen change that I will never take advantage of. It's not that difficult to spin your laptop around on the meeting table if you want to show people something or if you're sharing just use a projector.

    Then again who am I? I'm probably the only person who absolutely loved the track pad placement on the Predator 700. Finally someone moved that thing out of my way and made it look sexy doing it. I could see the screen being good on a productivity only machine that's super light and portable but not really on a gaming laptop.

    Still a very nice looking machine just the same and the screen wouldn't deter my purchase as long as it didn't add to much to the weight over the competition. My 700 is pushing the limit of what I want to haul around everyday. I'm right handed so the trackpad doesn't matter to me I can get used to it on the right, top or bottom. But I would never buy a laptop with a trackpad on the left. So I can imagine that this just excluded every lefty out there. Which is a shame since the majority of my co-workers are left handed. I don't know what it is but there seem to be so many lefties in IT.

    I agree with practically everything you said. And i do prefer having the keyboard on the bottom.

    Do you know if the Triton 900 will have pen support?  I've been looking and looking for a high-end gaming laptop which is also a convertible 2-in-1, and this upcoming product seems like the closest thing I've heard about yet.  If it will have a Wacom/nTrig digitizer and stylus support, it will be exactly what I'm searching for, and put me down for one =)
