If you desire the best PC gaming experience, then a desktop computer is your best bet to satisfy your hunger. Unfortunately, you’ll have to live with the fact that your playtime is over once you leave the house. We understand it’s a bummer to see other people gaming on their Nintendo Switch, mobile phones, or Nintendo 3DS. Now it’s your turn to become the envy of everyone else with the Acer Predator 17, which is a top-spec gaming laptop that won’t necessarily break the bank.

First of all, as the name suggests, this is one massive notebook. You’ll probably consider a more portable 15-incher, but sometimes, size does matter. We’re talking about the bigger chassis allowing better airflow and more space for add-ons. Moreover, you should know that this gaming monster does not pack Intel’s 8th-generation chipsets. Nonetheless, the modest price tag gives you a powerful Core i7-7700HQ quad-core CPU alongside 16GB of DDR4 RAM.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 that holds a 6GB dedicated VRAM handles resource-heavy visuals like a champ. This machine flaunts its capabilities through a 17.3-inch FHD IPS display and the SoundPound 4.2 system includes four speakers, two subwoofers, and Dolby audio-enhancement technology. Finally, the Acer Predator 17 wraps everything in a stylish and menacing aesthetic that just screams raw power.
