The one thing that strikes you as you see the Acer Predator G6 is its mysterious sci-fi alien looks combined with fine aesthetics. The chassis is uneven and covered with curved square blocks in steel grey. Since this is a gaming machine, it comes with the appropriate features. The mainstay of this monster looking PC is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, along with a whopping 4GB memory. This alone provides this PC with the necessary muscle to play all the normal games even at very high settings. The really popular games like Star Wars Battlefront can be played at 60fps and higher at a crisp 2560 x 1440.
The front portion of the Acer Predator G6 contains the main ports and easily accessible features. At the top are two concealed panels that open to show the Blu-ray drive as also the easy-swap expansion bay which permits the user to switch out the storage drives sans using a screwdriver. Apart from these, a small and useful headset dongle pops out, letting you hang the headphones, once the game is over. The front panel also hosts the main plug-and-play connections: headphone and microphone jacks, SD card reader and a couple of USB 3.0 ports. Then there is the Turbo button at the very top of the front panel, to let you overclock the PC by means of a quick press.
The remaining essentials are at the rear of the machine, and it includes mic jacks, USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet jack, line-in, line-out as well as an extra four USB 3.0 ports. The Nvidia GTX 980 graphics card includes an HDMI port, and three Display Ports, if you want to connect the PC to more monitors.
Except for its easy and convenient hot-swap hard drive bay, the Acer Predator G6 doesn’t provide much, as to tool-free upgradability. It is possible to pop off the side and real panels of the PC, to enable easy access to components access, although it is necessary to unscrew some screws to do so.
