The laptop Predator series will be available in two sizes; 15-inch and 17-inch. It looks something of a mix between the new Alienware and Asus gaming laptops, which is not a bad thing. The ports include four USB 3.0 ports, one USB Type-C connector, HDMI and DisplayPort.

Acer is also looking to steal of NVIDIA’s thunder with its Predator gaming tablet. Like the NVIDIA SHIELD, Acer’s device supposedly runs on Android, and will feature two cameras, back and front, and four speakers. One of the main benefits of the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet was its ability to stream PC games from PCs to the tablet, we don’t yet know if Acer will be offering something similar with its Predator tablet.

Acer didn’t reveal the hardware specifications for any of the PCs and tablet so we don’t yet know what to expect from them performance-wise. According to Toms Hardware, the display will be out in Q2 2015, the tablet and desktop in Q3, and the laptop sometime in Q4. Acer didn’t reveal pricing for any of the devices either.
