Acer Predator 17 X (GX-791-758V)


The Acer Predator 17 X (GX-791-758V) gaming laptop delivers crisp visuals and good performance on a beautiful 4K display—but at a price that's hard to justify.

Crisp 4K display. Plenty of storage and port options. Attractive, customizable backlighting and programmable macros. Strong overall performance with desktop-grade, VR-capable graphics card.

Heavy and bulky. Price tag is high considering its use of a last-generation graphics card.

Conclusion While the Acer Predator 17 X isn't the best gaming laptop out there, it does what it was meant to do—play games—pretty well. And if visuals are your thing, it's hard to beat a 17-inch 4K screen. That being said, it's somewhat prohibitively...

Acer Predator 17 (7700HQ, GTX 1070, UHD) Laptop Review


4K Gaming. The Acer Predator series stands for classical gaming notebooks, which – in contrast to some of their slim siblings – are purely trimmed for performance. After we tested the Skylake version of the Predator 17 in September of 2016, now the...

future-proof features (amount of RAM, etc.) ; optical drive or additional fan ; illuminated keyboard with macro keys ; optional GPU overclocking ; excellent UHD display ; very high performance ; Thunderbolt 3 ; NVMe-SSD ; G-Sync

touchpad is set into the case very deep ; design is a matter of taste ; limited maintenance ; poor battery life ; high weight ; thick case

Since our Skylake test, our verdict on the visually extravagant Predator remains almost unchanged. With the featured equipment, the Kaby-Lake version also scores with an excellent UHD panel, which plays at the top in most disciplines (such as viewing...

Acer Predator 17 G9-793 Notebook Review


The Mighty Giant. Just this May, we reviewed the Predator 17 G9-792 with GTX 980M GPU. Now Acer has released the nearly identical successor, this time equipped with a GTX 1070 graphics card. The behemoth manages to impress once again with special...

bright and contrasty 4K panel with great color space coverage ; G-Sync for the integrated display ; future-proof RAM and VRAM configuration ; highly adjustable lighting configuration ; additional, replaceable fan (FrostCore) ; usable tools (Dust...

fan is a bit noisy and produces additional sounds ; screen-bleeding quite pronounced ; GPU-throttling at maximum load levels ; big and bulky ; touchpad is recessed too far

The screen bleeding we observed can possibly be attributed to the pre-production status of our review system (although we doubt it) - but we still adjusted our test score accordingly. More of an issue is the fact that the CPU of this particularly huge...

SSD drive this is very small as your program default and soon fills up you need at least 500 GB

Acer Predator 17 G9-793


I liked the idea of a back-lit keyboard. It was my main reason for buying. I needed a second computer and it seemed logical to buy a laptop.

The tracker pad is a disappointment. It is very sensitive to finger pressure. Press too hard and it doesn't work. Conversely, the tracker pushbuttons work on the slightest pressure and usually when you don't want them to. I would have preferred the pad...

Acer Predator 17 G9-793


This laptop is amazing. It runs everything I ask it too without blinking and all my games are on intra high detail.

The killer wireless connector doesn't like to run when the laptop is on balanced power mode or on battery saver so you always have to have it on high performance when you're using the internet and it's not plugged in.

Acer Predator 17 G9-793


It can run pretty much any high spec game flawlessly. The sound quality from the built in speakers are fantastic, you won't need to buy any speakers separately. For the size of laptop it doesn't weight too much.

When your using the laptop in max performance mode. You'll need the fans to be on maximum, this can become quite loud, although the built in speakers do drown out the sound of the fans.

Acer Predator 17 G9-793


The design is pretty nice and for a good gaming and vr laptop the weight is pretty good compared to others I have owned. Performance in games is top notch

The fan noise ,,,, omg the fan noise once you start playing. Extremely loud and easily overpower the already poor speakers. I cant imagine how loud it would be if the frost core fan was inserted also. You will find yourself using headphones more often...
