More info

The 17.3" Predator 17 Notebook from Acer is a system designed for gamers who require fast hardware and an aggressive design with LED lighting. It's also well suited for general everyday use such as browsing the Internet, watching movies, and composing documents. Powered by a 6th generation Skylake 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor and 16GB of DDR4 RAM, the Predator 17 ensures smooth multitasking and quick access to frequently used files and programs. For additional computing power, the processor can be adjusted to 3.5 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology.

The 17.3" Full HD IPS display has a 1920 x 1080 native resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio that supports 1080p content without letterboxing. IPS (In-Plane Switching) panels offer better color reproduction and viewing angles than standard TN (Twisted Nematic) panels. It's driven by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M graphics card with 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM and delivers sharp, clear pictures and fast gaming performance. You can also output video and HD audio via DisplayPort or the HDMI port with HDCP support.

For long-term storage of your files, the Predator 17 has a 128GB solid state drive and a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive. Solid state drives have no moving parts, making them more resistant to bumps and shock, and they deliver faster performance than traditional hard drives. If you want to add external storage, peripherals, and more, it is equipped with one Thunderbolt 3 port via the USB Type-C port, and four USB 3.0 Type-A ports. Built-in Killer Wireless-AC 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet provide wireless and wired Internet connectivity while Bluetooth 4.1 technology enables you to connect additional compatible peripherals such as headsets, keyboards, and mice. Other integrated features include a SuperMulti DVD Drive, an SD card reader, a 720p webcam, a microphone, four speakers, and two subwoofers. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).
