i liked the keyboard so much looks very comfortable for typing

ItzCrumple says:

As an owner of one of these, You can change the backlighting, Currently have mine set to cyan. This is for the ’15 model, It can run basically any game you want it to on high-ultra. And the stickers they scatter on it are weirdly satisfying to have tuere.

I’d recommend buying it. Worth the money

Robert Rachita says:

im planning to buy a new laptop, i had an acer i bought almost 4 years ago so its outdated. yet i am undecided between the acer predator 17 and asus rog g752, both with new pascal cards. What should i choose? i know acer is slighty cheaper (better specs for same money as the rog) but i prefer the rog’s design. such a hard decision…

Froughttrack says:

Need help deciding between the Asus Predator 17, Asus Rog G752VT, or the Asus Rog GL502 need thoughts on which is better

ponas tomas says:

Why the fuck predators are so expensive in UK.. For 100-200 less you can buy an alienware even with same or slightly better specs. Also the extra fan you can swap in is just an useless gimmick which is kinda rude from Acer.

Connor Blair says:

I was really hoping the button near the trackpad was a fingerprint sensor

winterthrone29 says:

I bought Acer predator 17 G9-791 6 months ago and I can say I regret nothing. Money well spend. I was pretty sceptical with acer in the begining but they have really outdone themselves.
I have upgrade ram to 16 gb (2x 8) and soon I will put better SSD. I got him with some Lite-on ssd (its not bad but also its not good, below average. Read speed is 480, write 140)
Almost all games run on 60 fps all ultra. And cooling is amzing. CPU is around 60-65C on some more demanding games 70C, GPU never pass 46C

Sid B says:

Do you have Irish heritage? Your accent sounds a bit Irish.

Russell Masc says:

Im planing on picking up the Acer Predator 15…wanted to know…could I swap the hardisk with one that runs on Windows 8.1? Are the Predator addons like Dust Defender and Predator Sense available for older Windows versions?…dont want to go through the trouble of reinstalling all the design software’s and games that I have.

2ndAmendmentGlock says:

Just as a personal preference, I really wish it had a removable battery. It’s just nice to be able to replace or extend battery life by a quick switch out instead of having to take the whole thing apart.

Curtis Meiring says:

Can I work for you.

Ben Canete says:

hi dave ? will you review Acer Predator 15 G9-593-761L gtx 1060 15″? what do you think? is it good ?

Fatalframer says:

Do you know if this is better than the asus rog 17″? I’m not sure if I should get this one or the asus.

Trofin Cristi says:
