Acer Aspire Predator priced up

Alienware pricing for an Acer

bit-tech scored some more details on the Acer Aspire Predator system and it looks as if Acer will have a few SKU's to be able to target a wide range of potential customers. The sub models are known as the Sniper, Trooper, Crusher and Eliminator.

First impressions by bit-tech seem favourable, although they managed to break the door covering the hot-swappable hard drives while they had a play with the system. They found the specifications to be quite well balanced, with even the entry level model featuring 4GB of DDR2-800 memory.

It appears that at least in Europe, all of the Predator systems will ship with the Logitech G11 keyboard and G5 mouse, but monitors are still optional. Even the "basic" Sniper model comes with an Intel Core 2-Quad Q9300 processor and it only goes up from there, although in Europe this model only comes with a pair of 9600GT graphcis cards which weren't listed on the Acer Predator Website as an option. The motherboard comes from MSI, but has been tuned by Acer for the Predator range.

If you're interested in buying one, the Sniper model starts at €1,699, with the Trooper going for €1,999, the Crusher ups that to €2,999, and finally, the Eliminator is going for a whopping €3,999. Talk about Alienware pricing on the top of the range model! But then again, this baby has 8GB of RAM, dual 9800GX2 cards and a few other goodies thrown in for good measure.
