Acer’s Predator series seem like they were made to challenge the Aliens not just in the gaming race but also at being budget friendly.
Now when we say budget friendly, don’t think you’ll get these laptops like hotcakes. The Acer Aspire VX 15 and the Predator 15 and 17 come packed with the latest tech and GPU wizardry which would justify their ₹87,999 starting price.
Aspire me baby
The Acer Aspire VX 15 has a 15.6 inch Full HD screen (hence the 15 in the name). The trapezoidal structure gives it a very ‘game me baby’ feel in spite of not having the Predator logo at the back.
Want to know what you get for ₹87,999 from Flipkart? No, we won’t tell you that it has an Intel i7-7700HQ (2.80 GHz) processor along with 8GB DDR4 SDRAM. And we definitely won’t tell you that it can store all your data on its 1TB hard drive with an additional 128GB SSD.
We also won’t tell you that the Nvidia GTX 1050 with 4GB VRAM is hiding in there to fondle your gaming love for years to come. Nope. Still not sayin’ it. Only know that if you’re looking for a gaming laptop from Acer, this is your cheapest bet.
It’s the Predator! Run towards it.
You should definitely start pacing towards these IPS Full HD antiglare G-sync VR-ready screens. Yes, these come in two sizes, the Predator 15 (15.6 inch screen) and the Predator 17 (17.3 inch screen). The same Intel i7 7700HQ processor is present in both with up to 64 GB RAM. It also has the same 1TB hard drive with 128GB SSD.
The laptop is engineered with FrostCore, the swappable fan design that injects extra fan to keep the temperature down. Housed with world’s thinnest metal fan blade - Aero Blade, the Predator should keep your VR gaming loads at lower temperatures. Especially when it's packed with the Nvidia GTX 1060 with up to 6GB VRAM.
It will be available India starting from ₹1,59,999.
