Digital Storm Triton – A Midrange Gaming Laptop

Digital Storm Triton

Digital Storm Triton is a nice mid-range gaming machine with cool features and good performance. With an approximate price of $1700 it is a great value buy for gaming fans.

Features and design

Digital Storm Triton weighs about 5.8 pounds and has a height of 0.98 inches and width of 15 inches. Its design is so low-key that it looks more like a business laptop rather than a gaming laptop. But it has beveled corners and side venting which adds an edge to its simple design.

It has a comfortable back-lit keyboard with a numeric keypad. The keys are slightly curved in  which provides better grip to the user. There are two mouse buttons on the touch-pad, which offers functional ease during gaming. The screen measures 15.6 inches and offers a resolution of 1920 by 1080. This resolution is good enough for gaming enabling the makers to keep the price tag affordable.

The Triton comes with great connectivity options. You get an Ethernet port, one USB port (2.0), three USB ports (3.0), two DisplayPorts (mini) one HDMI port and also an SD card reader, Bluetooth (4.0) and other options for wireless connectivity. Storage is decent, but you get the optical drives only as an external option.


Digital Storm Triton has a great processor (Intel Core i7-4710HQ), a good graphics card and an 8 GB RAM, which can be upgraded to 32 GB. All these make Triton a great gaming laptop and offer gamers a perfect choice of machine at a good price. This holds Triton in good stead when compared with other gaming laptops with a higher price tag.

Battery life is good enough at about four and a half hours. This is better than other gaming laptops in the similar price ranges. But more than four hours is a good time for a few sessions of your favorite game and if you keep the power adapter nearby you don’t need to interrupt your gaming session. The sound can be better and you can’t hear much if there is a loud noise nearby. The speakers are not great so you would need headphones. The cooling fans are very noisy and you can hear its whirring when using the laptop.

Digital Storm Triton may not be the best gaming laptop available today. But it is the best gaming laptop thanks to its decent price range. It also comes with a warranty of three years, which is an added bonus when you buy the Digital Storm Triton. Feature-wise it only lacks a few, compared with pricier models. It offers everything you need for a satisfactory to good gaming experience and you can’t get better than this at the same cost.
