Getting into the perfect position is the first important step when preparing to boot up your favourite game. Whether you’re on the hunt in a battle royale game or solo-queing in your favourite MOBA, discomfort is sure to put a downer on any gaming session, and when your skill ranking is on the line, that matters. So having a setup that allows you to focus entirely on being in the game, and not just playing the game from another side of a screen, is vital.
That’s not always so easily done with a gaming laptop, however. It cuts both ways: the added bonus of portability means you’ll have to adjust your setup often, which can lead to some less than ideal situations that makes the screen difficult to see – or approaching footsteps hard to hear. When you just want to get on and game, setting things up perfectly can be a chore.
Enter the Predator Triton 900 gaming laptop with 8th gen Intel® Core i7 processor, a machine that wants to give you both portability and convenience via a novel transforming mechanism. The CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge allows you to move the stunning 4K IPS display with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology into a variety of positions, ideal for whatever game you’re playing.
Notebook mode is the tried and tested classic
Sometimes the classics really are the best. Notebook mode is the traditional laptop set up, and in a lot of situations it really is the superior option. Whether you’re playing a strategy game like StarCraft 2 that requires access to the entire mechanical keyboard or trying to rustle up an elusive chicken dinner in Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, chances are you are going to want to be playing in Notebook mode.
Display mode is perfect for group gaming
Not playing solo? No problem. Display mode takes the screen and flips it to the opposite side of the laptop, making it the perfect solution for playing games that don’t require a keyboard and mouse. While playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in this mode will see you sitting most rounds out, if you fancy racing around a picturesque digital version of Great Britain in Forza Horizon 4 then hook up a wireless gamepad and kick back. Display mode makes it almost feel like you are playing on a giant TV, with no distractions between you and the screen – even if you’re actually on a busy train.
Ezel mode brings the action even closer
Ezel mode is the perfect middle ground between the other options. It brings the screen closer to you, while still not obscuring access to the keyboard and trackpad. It allows for a more compact setup, so if space is an issue this could be the perfect option for you, but still offers up access to everything you could need without making things uncomfortable. It also makes it a lot easier to use the touchscreen functionality as the screen will naturally be closer to your hands, meaning you don’t have to stretch out and reach for it as you may in Notebook mode.
Stand mode turns your laptop into a super powerful tablet
With the screen flipped over and the laptop closed, stand mode turns the Predator Triton 900 into one of the most powerful tablet computers you have ever seen. The thin form factor, coming in at just 23.75 mm means that when in stand mode the Predator Triton 900 is easy to use and keep portable. Here it becomes perfect for games that can be played entirely on the touchscreen, or for creator tools so you can create the next gaming masterpiece instead.
