Acer is giving the Predator Triton 500 gaming laptop a serious update in the display department with a refresh rate of a staggering 300 Hz.
So now, in the new Thronos Air, if you want to recline your chair, you pull a handle like the rest of us. This time around, it comes in the form of Predator Thronos Air. But really, it's a gaming massage chair. Where it differs is that it's now around half the price (starting at around US$14,000) and this is mostly because it no longer has all the motorized tilting gadgetry and haptic feedback, but, it does have a massage feature built into the chair.
Just like the original model, the Predator Thronos' monitor arm is able to support up to three monitors.
The Thronos Air also has the ability to be outfitted with a variety of accessories, such as cameras and cup holders (essential for staying hydrated while cooking virtual fools), and unlike the original Thronos, this chair appears to come with an in-built massaging function, which will not doubt be ideal after lengthy rounds of virtual smiting. Need to adjust the screen angle? This rig is all manual hydraulics kiddo. Much lighter one would hope.
The chair can be adjusted to 130 degrees inside its cabin.
The Thronos Air can support three monitors and has a desk with a keyboard and mouse tray. If you want a cup holder, camera, seat stabilizer or USB hub, you'll have to pay a bit extra for upgrades. This is done via coaching, where players select a coach based on their game statistics and rating, or "carrying", where gamers play alongside better players.
Inside the Acer Predator Triton 300, keeping things cool, is Acer's 4th gen AeroBlade 3D metal fan technology, with CoolBoost technology, helped along by strategically placed air intake and exhaust vents.
