Pros

  • Unlocked i7 processor
  • Desktop grade graphics
  • Brilliant IPS display
  • 32GB of RAM
  • Good port selection

Cons

  • Muddy sound
  • Price
  • Heavy and bulky
  • Battery life

Bottom Line

The Predator 17 X GX-791-73FH is a powerful gaming laptop with a desktop grade GTX 980 graphics card, but the battery life will mean that this mammoth laptop will need to be plugged in most of the time.


The Predator 17 X GX-791-73FH is a bestselling high-end Acer gaming laptop that has been praised for its unlocked CPU, massive amount of RAM, aggressive gaming looks, powerful GTX 980 graphics card and for its crisp IPS display. However the powerful hardware will drain the battery extremely quickly and the sound is slightly muddy for a high-end laptop. Some reviewers have also mentioned that the desktop grade GTX 980 could be quicker, but the GTX 980 will easily run any modern AAA gaming title currently on the market.

    The Predator 17 X carries on the handsome, black-on-red, hard-edged look that Acer debuted at IFA 2015 for the new line. Unique, it is not, but the combination of matte black plastic with red accents is a classic. It makes the gaming intent clear without going over the top, and helps obscure the fact the chassis is mostly plastic, not metal.
