[Amazon.ca] Acer Predator Triton 700 Acer PT715-51-761M, Limited Stock $1173.36

Fantastic price for a premium-built laptop. I have the 1080 version and for normal use the 1060 will save you battery life with optimus. Sold directly through amazon, free shipping. 2 Available at time of posting. Thin super rigid, full aluminum chassis. IPS Panel with decent colour accuracy. Mechanical keyboard, full size number pad.

Yes the specs are aging, but honestly this is extremely well built. Was Acer's previous flagship. And its a laptop with Raid0

7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ Processor (Up to 3.8GHz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM
15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) LED-backlit IPS Display
16GB DDR4 Memory & 512GB PCIe SSD in RAID 0 configuration
Dual All-Metal Aero Blade 3D Fans with 5 Heat Pipes

Terrible price for a 7700hq + 1060.

Can you find something comparably built at a reasonable price? I have daily-used mine for a year with 0 complaints, and the build quality is better than the Razer blades (comparable thin-light). Less than an inch thick, under 5lbs.

In November I got basically the same thing with 144screen for $1,007 from Amazon.

For the price, I rather have this deal (I know this was black friday deal, but again 3 months ago). GTX 1060 mobile came out in 2016 and while there hasn't been a ground breaking generation leap from 10 to 20 series, it is struggling to run the latest AAA like Control, Metro Exodus, RDR2 etc. But the deal breaker was the touchpad for me. I had 1080 max-Q version of this and had to return within a week because of it.

There are quite a few better built at reasonable prices, just not at this exact moment. Please don't ask me for a time machine. Especially not for electronics. It's always going to much better and cheaper. If one doesn't have to have it now, always buy later.

As you're trying to justify the price through built quality, I have to apologize that I don't have hands on experience with this particular model. Maybe it's top notch build quality as the other premium brands/models. I just find it hard to justify buying a 3-4 years old quad core 7700hq with 1060 for close to 1200$+tax at the moment.

Huh? Do they mean 2x256 PCIe's in Raid 0?

It probably was when you bought it a year ago. Not so much today.

If you like the body/screen, this is a good deal given that is likely better quality than other laptops in this range. You do give up some CPU performance (tho nothing major) given most other laptops around this price range will have a 9750 instead of 7750. The difference isn't big. There is a chance if you manage to find a sale that a 1660/2060 model drops close to this price range, which would give you better GPU performance so that is something to consider.

Of course if you just look at specs, the Y540 at microsoft store actually comes close to it (CPU/GPU performance, since the rest arent tough to upgrade if you so desire) and was much cheaper on black friday.

($899 on black friday last year, no idea if it repeated at that price, the specs were a bit too low for me but the deal but it was probably the hottest entry gaming laptop deal last year).

I took advantage of that deal last Black Friday. So far I am happy with it despite being entry level gaming...
