    £1500 for the 2060/i5 8GB RAM 256GB SSD
    £1800 for the 2060/i7 16GB RAM 512GB SSD
    £2000 for the 2070/i7 x1 SSD
    £2200 for the 2070/i7 x2 SSD
    £2500 for the 2080/i7 x1 SSD
    £2700 for the 2080/i7 x2 SSD

    from what I can see

    GS65 with 512GB SSD x1 and 2080 is £3000
    Aero 15 Y9 with 1TB SSD and 2080 is £3200

    idk if they're the actual prices but you can see these by inspecting the webpage of the shop

    Razer has their prices up. The 2080 with 512gb 144hz is $3000 and the 2070 is $2649. So if the prices you found on the Triton 500 are accurate then we should see it be fairly priced.

    Found this video on YouTube of an unboxing. It's in Vietnamese so if anyone could translate that'd be great.

    Nice find. Looks slick too. It dod say preorder at the end so I'm gonna see if they have that up as I'm curious on the cost compared to the likes of the gs65 and zephyrus s.

    Well the Zephy S(2080, 16GB RAM, 1TB NVME) is £3500 apparently so it's the most expensive, if the retailer prices are true

    Those prices are not as bad as I thought they would be.
    This is shaping up to be the best deal if prices are for real.
    GS65 is a very good laptop but without a Gsync screen it’s a missing feature I want in my next laptop.
    Aero 15 already ran hot and loud and unless they really worked on the cooling system the Y9 with 2080 probably will as well, also a great laptop but expensive.
    Asus Zephyrus S was one laptop at the top of my list but if it’s going to be the most expensive it’s going to be hard to justify spending that much money.

    Yeah the prices are nice if they're final
    Still interested to see this implementation of gsync(mux or variable refresh rate implementation) due to the battery being "up to 8 hours". Mux would allow you to use adaptive sync and don't have to deal with lower fps from having to copy to the igpu to display like some people have(haven't tried verifying it myself).

    GS 65(less so because of flipped board)/75 would be near perfect if it had Windows Hello, don't know why they didn't bring back the fingerprint scanner power button like that one SKU that had it activated

    Aero 15 seems like throttle land with 0 changes to anything else, wouldn't even consider it anymore

    I was interested in the Zephy S but the soldered 8GB of ram is weird, no thunderbolt and weird port versions vs GM501 are kinda deal breakers for me

    I don't understand these laptop manufacturers lol, at least this Acer is cheaper than the rest of its competitors so you can overlook some missing things

    I'm guessing, the 2080 version of the Triton 500 will be as expensive as the Triton 700 at around 2899.99

    So the Trion 500 is going to require removing the motherboard if you want to upgrade the ram, m.2, or a repaste. Man that's disappointing.

    Great find!

    It looks like the battery is 82/WH.
