    They honestly are the company Razer thinks they are at this point. Though some of their premium stuff makes even some company’s like Apple seem cheap. But, since most of that is limited edition like the Predator 21 laptop I can give them a pass on the absurd prices. As I’m going to assume that Thronos is not gonna be affordable purchase. If only I was single. . .

    Sony had a mix between the xps 12 and a modern convertible back in like 2012/2013 as well. Triton 900 really reminds of it.

    I recall people hated it, odd to see now people like the form

    Thin Bezels really don’t matter in my opinion. Yes you get more of a cleaner look with them. . .but besides making the laptop look sexy what is the point. In all honesty it’s actually a bad thing. Smaller bezels means small laptop chassis’s. Smaller chassis’s means less room for commonents and cooling. In my mind the industry has it backwards. Instead of “We made the smallest 15” laptop!” It should be “We fit a 17” laptop screen on a 15” chassis and a 18.4” on a 17” laptop chassis.” We’ve been using big bezel laptops for so many years that they should keep the size the same and give us bigger screens. Atleast that’s how I’d do it. Lol.

    And it does look like chuncky laptop. But, RTX cards use more power than the out going 1000 series cards so they’ll likely need some serious cooling power. But honestly it looks like a foldable desktop. And if it has that kind of power I’m sold also.

    Not much about the Acer Triton 900 since announcement, here's a couple of videos, one in English, one not...hoping this model works out well - it's got a full RTX 2080 *not* Max-Q.

    Acer delivers into the Asian regions first, so we might not see this in the US or Europe for a while...

    Laptop as fast as Desktop Gaming? Review of Acer Predator Triton 900: Convertible + RTX2080 - Indonesia

    This is a convertible gaming laptop from Acer. Predator Triton 900. Is it true that this laptop can compete with desktop gaming?

    * Clock Speed GeForce RTX 2080 in Turbo Mode - 1530 MHz GPU | Memory 14600 MHz (Effective)
    * Sorry if there is a 'creaking' sound when changing the position / format of the laptop. That is the sound of our new table that is less sturdy, not the sound of the laptop (the table will be fixed soon).

    Shatter the mold – in with the new. This laptop is the first of its kind with a screen that gets right in your face and literally bends to your will. Held aloft via the CNC-machined hinge, the 17-inch 4K IPS touch display hovers over the metallic body – filled to the brim with that precious game-obliterating hardware.

    Hardware such as GeForce RTX™ 2080 GPU, 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processors. Speed up load times with up to 32GB of DDR4 2666 RAM, up to 512GB of PCIe NVMe M.2 SSDs in Raid 0.

    Any news on price and release date? With a 4K UHD screen with GSync is at 60Hz?
    I haven’t seen or heard of 120Hz or more 4K screens.

    Here is a tear down video. Alot easier than the Triton 500. Also it looks like two models are on the way. Both will have the RTX 2080 Desktop and the 9750h and either 1TB for $3799 or 2TB for $3999. I sent an email to acer support to see if they can shed some light on a release date. It's definitely expensive, but it's from what I can tell the only Desktop 2080 laptop that doesn't have a 1080 screen.


    I found this too. Apparently they are making a CREATOR version of this laptop. The short version is doesn't have RGB lighting, less aggressive exterior look, and can have an i9 inside. Everything else is the same as it still rocks a desktop RTX 2080. If only Acer would release something and stop show casing awesome things.
