a gaming PC that won't break the bank. Acer Predator

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, January 6, 2011

    A gaming PC…that won’t break the bank.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Acer calls it the Predator.    A new desktop computer with enough horsepower for gaming that doesn’t require a second mortgage.    Senior product manager John Karabian says it is designed for entry to mid level gamers and more…

“So really what you’re getting is the best of Intel’s new architecture.  So Core i5 processors in the 2000 series, which is brand new, just released.  And with that you’re going to get some advanced features  that really aid in, not just gaming, but in other things that you may do on your PC such as digital media.”

   Video and photo editing and such.    The starting price for the Predator is under 900 dollars…far below the cost of a typical gaming PC.    It’s packed with 8 gigs of RAM and a one and a half TB hard drive.   You can find us with more from the Consumer Electronics Show at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
