Expert review by : Elias Plastiras (

Acer Aspire Predator


Powerful, expensive and very, very orange.

Case design is quite functional despite the front-panel door, good monitor, fast performance, liquid-cooled CPU

Doesn't have an option for the latest and greatest in graphics and RAM technology

Acer Aspire Predator


Acer's Aspire Predator ticks most of the boxes for an enthusiast's machine, but the interior is a let down.
