Throughout 2016, Acer released a large number of Predator 15 and Predator 17 machines all of them offering various screen options and more importantly – different GPUs. It’s quite normal considering the fact that mid-2016 the company released a desktop-grade GTX 980-powered notebook, which went obsolete in just a few months when the OEM released its GTX 1070 and 1080-powered Predator 17.
However, if all of the above are a little over your pay grade, Acer got you covered. This hefty beast here packs a GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB GDDR5) and costs way lower than its more powerful siblings. Unfortunately, though, since the notebook was released just before Intel announced its Kaby Lake quad-core CPUs, the G5-793 missed that train. We can expect a refresh in the near future, probably. But in terms of real-life performance, the Core i7-6700HQ will do just fine. But what about the rest – display quality, cooling capabilities?
