The HyperDrift design lets you extend the keyboard / trackpad out to reveal hidden speakers and fans through the Corning Gorilla Glass and mesh, giving it increased airflow up to 18.9%. The fans utilized in the machine is Acer’s signature Dual 4th Gen Aeroblade 3D fans, maximizing airflow while also minimizing noise.

The keyboard itself has per-key RGB backlighting and MagForce WASD keys for more precise in-game movements.

Pokdepinion: Personally, I’m not sure if I’d be leaning more towards this or the Triton 900. Perhaps if I’m looking purely at gaming, it’s probably this one.
