Acer Predator 15 Notebook Review

 

Beast of prey. Following the extremely successful V 15 Nitro, Acer presents its next gaming platform. Instead of an upper mid-range GPU, a genuine premium model is in the Predator 15. Can the GTX 980M stand up against the 15-inch competition?

high-contrast and color accurate IPS screen, pleasant touchpad surface, USB 3.1 inc. Thunderbolt 3, cool wrist rest area, removable drive, backlit keyboard, very good battery life, convenient tools

CPU's Turbo not fully utilized, GTX 980M with 4 vs. 8 GB VRAM, throttling in extreme situations, G-Sync only for external monitors, battery depletes under high load, sound could be better, limited maintenance options, relatively heavy casing,...

Acer makes a relatively successful high-end debut in the gaming-laptop sector. When disregarding the flamboyant design and susceptible soft-touch surfaces, the casing definitely has good sides. Besides the stiffness, the input devices and interfaces...

Acer Predator 15 (G9-591-74KN)

 

Acer's Predator 15 (G9-591-74KN) offers a lot of what you want in a midrange gaming laptop: Top speed, graphics performance, and long battery life. But it all comes at a steep price.

Latest Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics card. 32GB of RAM. Excellent performance. Great graphics. Swappable fan module. Best-in-class battery life. 512GB SSD and 1TB HDD. Expandable memory. Many ports, including USB Type-C with...

Expensive. Heavy and bulky. Does not support Nvidia G-Sync.

Conclusions The Acer Predator 15 (G9-591-74KN) is an impressive machine, boasting a fast 6th-generation Intel Core processor, a top-notch graphics card, enough ports for all your needs (including USB-C with Thunderbolt 3), and best-in-class battery...

Acer Predator 15 review

 

"Why do all these gaming laptops look like sneakers?" That was the question my wife -- herself no stranger to gaming -- asked when I lifted the lid on the latest version of Acer's 15-inch Predator laptop. It may seem like an odd question for ask about...

A rare 15-inch gaming laptop with top-end Nvidia 980M graphics, and the extra cooling required to run high-end parts in a smaller body. Battery life is excellent for a gaming laptop.

Despite a few nice design touches, this is still a gaudy-looking gaming laptop. All those fans can get loud when running at maximum speed.

The Acer Predator 15 one of the fastest gaming laptops we've tested, and wisely adds extra cooling to handle high-end parts in a smaller 15-inch body.

Acer Predator 15 Review and Ratings

 

With excellent gaming performance, tons of storage, good battery life, and an absolutely superb keyboard, the Predator is a top-notch choice for gaming—if you can handle the premium price.

Killer gaming performance for 1080p ; Superb keyboard feel, layout ; Long battery life for a muscular gamer ; Solid build quality ; Lots of fast storage

No touch screen ; No higher-resolution display option ; G-Sync support is only for external displays

The Predator 15 came in at the top of most of our benchmarks, as you’d expect for a notebook ringing up at a whopping $2,499. However, keep in mind that Acer’s next configuration down, which shaves the SSD capacity to 256GB but still features the same...

Acer Predator 15 G9-591 review – beefy across the board

 

If you're after a 15-inch laptop with Nvidia 970M or 980M graphics, the Predator 15 is a solid performer and it's more affordable than most of the alternatives. The bundle also includes good screen options, an excellent keyboard and a large battery,...

well built; good display options; great keyboard and trackpad; solid performance; runs cool on the outside, although the internals get hot; large battery; fast Wi-Fi; good price

massive, thick and heavy for a 15-incher; gets very loud under load; lots of LEDs that can't be switched off; somewhat muffled speakers; no GSync support

Acer Predator 15 review: A fast, affordable gaming laptop trapped in a heavy chassis

 

Acer's Predator 15 is kind of like the Facebook friend whose status we check once in a while, noticing a new component or some small change since last time.
