These include Acer Chromebook 315 with 15.6-inch display and two new convertible gaming notebooks - Acer Predator TriTon 500 and Predator TriTon 900.

"We're excited that our new GeForce RTX 2080 GPU is helping Acer redefine gaming experiences on notebooks", said Kaustubh Sanghani, General Manager, GeForce OEM at NVIDIA. Acer mentions four basic modes of operation: traditional notebook mode, Stand mode which turns the Triton 900 into a tablet of sorts, Display mode which shares the screen with others, and Ezel mode for playing games on the touch screen.

There's also 16GB RAM and up to 1TB of NVMe PCIe SSD storage. I'm not sure ergonomics is top of mind for most gamers who are willing to shell out $4,000 for a laptop, but it can't hurt either.

On Sunday, Acer also announced the far more conventional Predator Triton 500. The Triton 900 has a CNC-machined hinge that lets you move the device's 17.3-inch touchscreen more freely than you'd be able on a conventional laptop.

Internally, there's a choice of 8th Generation Intel processors, the Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU, and 32GB of DDR4 RAM.

The first day of CES 2019 seems very much focused on gaming notebooks and components, with Nvidia showcasing new graphics cards and the likes of Samsung and Asus revealing fresh hardware. It also features a Xbox wireless receiver, so you can also use Xbox One controller if you do not want to use mouse and keyboard for gaming. "The Predator Triton 500 is smaller than its Triton 700 counterpart and it uses a lower-res 15.6" 1080p IPS panel with a fast 144Hz refresh rate. The utilized metal chassis is also just 17.9 mm thick and it weighs 1.9 kg. Acer intends to release a smartphone app that it is calling PredatorSense later this year, which will make it possible for you to adjust the lights, audio, and fans on the system. Additionally, users can view and set customized macro key sets for physical hotkeys. It will be available in North America in February with prices starting at US$1,799, in EMEA in February with prices starting at €1,999, and in China in January with prices starting at ¥16,999. Prices for the Acer Predator Triton 900 will start from $3,999 and the system is expected to be available sometime around March 2019.
