Acer, which teased its 2-in-1 convertible Predator Triton 900 gaming laptop at IFA 2018, has revealed more details about the notebook at the CES 2019 trade show.

The one that immediately grabs our attention is the Triton 900, and in particular its rather peculiar side hinges, which Acer has employed for some of its consumer-focused notebooks in the past. What stands out about the gaming machine is the Ezel Aero Hinge, which enables you to use the laptop in four different ways; a laptop mode, a tablet mode, an Ezel mode for playing games, and a display mode that lets you flip the display around.

Internally the aforementioned mobile-focused Nvidia RTX 2080 graphics card features, with up to an 8th Gen Intel i7 (8750-H) processor added to the mix. It comes in two configurations - AMD A6-9220C APU and A4-9120C APU in a system-on-chip design.

If that weren't enough, the company is also launching the Triton 500, an all-metal 15-inch gaming laptop available in February, starting at $1,799.

At 17.99mm thick and 4.6 pounds, the Triton 500 is still a fair bit heftier than something like an ultrabook, but that's pretty good as far as gaming laptops are concerned. A six core 8th gen Intel Core i7, PCIe SSDs in RAID 0, and up to 32GB of memory ensure that everything will run as smoothly as possible. Overclocking, fan speeds, lighting, and audio modes will all be under the control of this app and macros can also be viewed and set for physical hotkeys.

While gamers will obviously be interested in what's inside the Predator Triton 900, its most arresting feature can be found on the outside.

The Predator Triton 900 will be available in North America in March with prices starting at US$3,999; in EMEA in March with prices starting at €4,199, and in China in March with prices starting at ¥39,999.
