Predator Triton 500 SE initial review: For serious gamers who prefer subtler style

Despite being super powerful, the Triton 500 SE is designed to look a bit more subtle - a discreet gaming laptop, if you will. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The 16-inch screen is especially standout, using Mini LED technology for ultimate brightness. There's a 240Hz refresh rate too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
You can choose up to 11th Gen Intel Core i9 CPU and Nvidia RTX 3080 GPU, ensuring there's no lack of power. Just be prepared for the cost - at three grand! (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The need to dissipate heat and keep everything cool is what 5th Gen AeroBlade technology is for. The vents - rear, sides, underside - are certainly put to use. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C), HDMI, a full-size SD card reader (don't see those often!) and USB-A ports to keep peripherals and extras wired up. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Serious gamers can directly connect via the built-in Ethernet port for the fastest speeds. Although Wi-Fi 6 (ax) also means speedy wireless. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
One minute it's discreet, the next not so much. Full RGB lighting controls - and Predator Sense software to control - means this is still a true gaming laptop. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
If the original 'Style Edition' laptop didn't have the scale or power you wanted then the 16in model ups the ante. We'd like a sturdier build next time though. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
