Acer Predator 17 X


How much power is too much in a gaming laptop? Trick question, there's no such thing as too much power. That's why the Acer Predator 17 X (starting at $2,699, reviewed at $2,999) is a great investment. Outfitted with an overclockable Intel Core i7...

Acer Predator 17 X Review: 4K for Gamers


The Acer Predator 17 X packs a desktop-class graphics card, impressive 4K display, blazing fast quad-core processor and and even faster SSD.

Extremely good performance ; 4K display and VR-ready ; Keyboard feels amazing ; Great speakers ; Excellent heat venting

Acer Predator 17 X review


A monster gaming notebook that's almost ready for 4K

Loaded to the max with features ; 4K resolution G-sync screen ; Relatively quiet cooling fans

High price for last gen video card ; Annoyingly loud power-on sound ; Extremely long battery recharge time

This is Acer's most powerful gaming laptop yet with the cooling system to prove it – but it'll cost you dearly.
