Exterior and build quality

The body of the Acer Predator Triton 300 is heavy as it comes with a full metal chassis.


Plastic is not used in its body and hence, it is quite heavy even for a professional gaming laptop.


Still, it has a solid body that is water-proof and heat-resistant.


Also, considering the current work from home trend, people are preferring laptops that have a neutral exterior so that they can easily use them in their home office and play games on the same laptop in their spare time. .


Display

Talking about the display of the laptop, you get a wide 14″ FHD display.


Despite being a gaming laptop from a brand like Acer, which is known for its gaming laptops, the overall design of the Acer Predator Triton 300 is very sleek and minimalist.


You do not get to see any attractive logo on the front or any backlit background. Hence, this laptop easily qualifies as an office laptop to use at your workplace or to take notes online at university.


However, the only way you can do full justice to the powerful specs that this laptop comes with is to use it for playing games.


If you're someone who plays games only occasionally, however, this is a great option that's worth buying.


Acer Predator Triton 300 SE keyboard and trackpad

Since this is a gaming laptop, special attention is paid to making the keyboard comfortable to type on.


You can completely customize the keyboard's backlit setting or turn it off using the Predator Sense app. The only downside with this laptop's keyboard is its layout.


It can be a little difficult to get used to the odd placement of the Power key. The trackpad is wide and responsive.


Its keys aren't too shallow, which seems to be a frequent problem on the keyboards of most of the 2021 laptops we've reviewed in this space so far.


connectivity port

This laptop comes with a good mix of USB ports. It comes with USB 3.2 with Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI. Apart from this, the charging slot has been given on the left side of the laptop.

battery life

Acer claims that the battery lasts more than 9 hours on a single charge.


However, if you plan to use it as your primary laptop for gaming or office work, it can be quite tough for the battery to last for such a long time.


And, for light computing tasks, Make appears to be right about their claim for the laptop's 10-hour battery life.


But for travel, you can consider carrying a portable power bank in case the battery runs out. However, the battery can definitely last for 5-6 hours irrespective of usage.


sound quality

Since this is a gaming laptop, the audio is bound to be of top quality. You get high bass with crisp volume.


The internal microphone offers some unique features like keystroke suppression which is ideal for loud action games.


And the sound quality is good for listening to music and watching videos without losing any clarity of sound.


Acer Predator Triton 300 SE Overall Performance

Since this is a new laptop recently released by Acer, it is too early to give any final verdict on its performance, especially for gaming.


It is expected to come with several upgraded variants and tight now we have only the base model to estimate its performance.


And what we have realized so far is that this is a multi-functional laptop rather than a pure gaming laptop.


Fast processing power and its compatibility with the latest graphics cards make it a great laptop for any task you want to do.


However, as of now, due to the ever-increasing market for gaming laptops, Acer is actively marketing it as a gaming laptop.


gaming experience

Almost all the specs of this laptop are powerful enough to appeal to Gen Z gamers who are fond of playing first shooters and action games.


However, the only thing that makes them skeptical about this is the extra weight of the laptop.


Keeping in mind the 2021 gaming laptop standards, this laptop weighs a lot.


In an era where all the laptop brands are competing with each other as to who can come up with the lightest and most powerful gaming laptop, Acer has somehow taken a bold step.


Metal has been used in the entire body of this laptop. This has made the laptop quite heavy and bulky.


to sum up

Overall, the Acer Predator Triton 300 SE has a strong and sturdy body. The keyboard is RGB backlit and customizable. It is a perfect laptop for writers, office workers, students, editors, artists and designers.
