Ultrawide Desk Setup with Acer Predator Triton 300
Now I’ve always been a desktop kind of guy, but somewhere in my heart, I’ve kind of envied a really minimalist laptop desk setup.
So with the help of Acer sponsoring this video and providing us the Triton 300 once again, this is how you can achieve a really minimalist desk setup with an ultrawide monitor all powered by a single gaming laptop.
The first would be the heart of the setup and that’s the laptop of choice. We have the Acer Predator Triton 300 with us today and it’s one hell of a laptop.
The specs are nothing short of a full-fledged gaming desktop and perhaps even beating some to an extent. It sports an Intel Core i7-11800H, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, 32GB of DDR4 3200MHz RAM and a 1TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD.
Of course, performance is going to be great be it for creative work or gaming, and if you’re just using the laptop itself, it’ll be more than capable to power the high refresh rate quad HD screen that it comes equipped with. You can enjoy really high frame rates in games like CS:GO or you can enjoy realistic lighting and shadows without any sacrifice in performance either.
Next would be your monitor of choice. For our setup, we’re going with arguably one of the best ultrawide gaming monitors on the market right now. This is the Acer Predator X34GS and it’s really awesome for not just gaming, but content creation as well.
It’s a 34-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 3440 x 1440 running at 144Hz, but overclockable up to 180Hz. It also boasts a 1ms response time, 10-bit color, 98% DCI-P3 coverage, up to 550 nits in brightness and it’s also G-Sync Compatible.
Use it for gaming, use it for content creation, you name it. It’s superb.
The best part about a 34-inch ultrawide monitor is that it acts almost like two monitors. I personally usually find myself with two windows open, allowing you to multitask efficiently even with just a single monitor.
Now if you’ve yet to notice, we do have the X34GS mounted onto a VESA compatible monitor arm.
This is something that we would highly recommend investing in, because it’s not only more versatile in terms of how you want the monitor to be positioned, but it also frees up quite a lot of desk space that would have otherwise been taken up by the monitor stand. And most importantly, it looks so much cleaner.
In addition, the Triton 300 features a Thunderbolt 4 port. Which means you can use just one cable and power the monitor at its maximum resolution and refresh rate, well also actually providing some juice for the laptop as well.
Lastly, your choice of peripherals.
Get a keyboard of your choice, a mouse of your choice, add in a microphone, a stream deck… anything, you name it. Add all of that and it’ll become one hell of a setup.
You now have a really minimalist desk setup that not only looks great but functions great, and is all powered from just a single gaming laptop.
And in fact, this is also the best way to get the most out of your laptop because by connecting to an external display, it’ll use the full potential of the discrete GPU, which in this case, is the RTX 3080 and you won’t feel the heat either, since the laptop is now neatly tucked away.
Like I’ve said, I honestly really like the setup and the whole idea behind using a single gaming laptop to power all your needs. The experience is just as if I’ve a full-fledged desktop, but yet with so much more space to play with.
Not just physically, but mentally as well.
