Acer Tips 300Hz Gaming Laptop, $14,000 Gaming Chair

If you are searching for the ultimate gaming chair then the $14,000 Predator Thronos Air might be with more investigation.

The GPU is decidedly entry-level for a gaming laptop, but unlike others that sacrifice the (admittedly less important) other specs to get the price down to install a more powerful GPU, the Triton 300 will likely appeal more to general users who also like to play some games.

At its IFA 2019 event, Acer announced the Predator Triton 500 but the laptop wasn't showcased.

Acer's Predator Thronos Air is expected to go on sale in Q4 in the USA and Europe. This 15.6-inch screen packing aluminium chassis constructed machine is 22.9mm thick and weighs in at a reasonable 2.3kg. Meanwhile, the internals have been boosted with options up to a 9th gen Intel Core i7 processor.

Mr Johnson was criticised for the remarks, with Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell saying he was "demeaning" the office of Prime Minister.

The Predator Triton 500 was released earlier this year and the latest one received a hardware upgrade as well.

The Predator team is riding high after becoming the first gaming brand to win a Red Dot Brand Award in August of this year (for the Predator XB3 series gaming monitors), and had a number of new gaming products announced at the company's global press conference in Berlin yesterday - which precedes IFA Berlin 2019, Europe's premier tech show, opening to the public tomorrow. It features an 81 percent screen-to-body ratio. Its 15.6-inch Full HD display has a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms overdrive response time for serious gamers. Acer Agile-Splendor technology utilises panels with both fast liquid crystals as well as 99 per cent sRGB wide colour gamuts.

This doesn't come with the gaming PC, though; there's a platform for the gaming rig behind the chair with a built-in cable management systems. That was the Predator Thronos, this is the Predator Thronos Air.

Much like the original, this "Air" version includes a modular desk, a monitor arm, and a chair. At the same time, its chair weights at around 30kg.
