I bought it @94990 Rs. in big billion days sale and it is a beast.
U won't get such a gaming laptop under 1 lakh.
1) good design and performance.
2) gtx 1060 allows u to play 97% games with high settings.
3) display is amazing.
4) ips display is good at both editing and gaming.I am sure that u won't disappoint with screen.Screen and its quality is amazing.
5) good cooling system.
6) keyboard is good for typing and playing.
7) dolby atmos.
8) multi gesture touchpad makes easy to control.
1) laptop bag is not provided but i have purchased predator gaming utility bag for 4499 Rs which was 6250 Rs in amazon great indian festival.
2) battery was avg , but it is better when compared to other gaming laptops and u dont need to worry about it , as everyone will plug charger. So no problem.
3) u r fingerprints may fall on it if u touch hardly but it can be cleaned later.
4) no rgb keyboard but red backlit is also good.
5) touchpad (mouse) don't have buttons so u need a mouse for sure to play. I bought predator cestus 500 mouse which has rgb from acer shop website along with antivirus , data crash recovery software , 1 year ADP , 2nd nd 3rd year extended warranty at just less than 4900 Rs bcoz i dont remember the cost ( i hope 4600Rs.) in a festival offer.
finally these cons are negligible . no 1 cares these cons.All can be made into pros.
I have played "the witcher 3" , "dota 2" , "killer instinct" , "fortnite" , "assassin's creed origins", "final fantasy xv" and "forza horizon 3".
All of them ran well without heat issues,but forza horizon 3 and final fantasy xv made high temperature upto 85 degrees at high settings while keeping on bed , if on lap 50-70 degrees based on the game.So dont try to play on bed, as no air will pass and heat generates. These are high graphical games, so no laptop under 2 lakh will be able to play this game without such heat.Anyway every laptop will heat as it is not a computer. But we can play this using cooling pad in a good atmosphere (not when temp is hot).I bought topmate c7 cooling pad . It will help me to play on bed or lap or high temp regions.
I suggest not to play on bed without leaving space between them.Any laptop will heat more if u play on bed.
If u want to purchase under 1.1 lakh then close u r eyes and jst go for it . No laptop is good compared to it.
If u can spend more, then your 1st choice should be ASUS ROG Strix Scar ii and 2nd choice should be MSI GP63 model.
only thing MSI GP63 is good than predator is better cooling system and 120hz tn panel (predator has 60hz ips and ips is better than tn panel) (tn panel just good for gaming and bad at editing) .But MSI is plastic mostly and i read that MSI laptops can be breaked easily compared to all laptops.
ASUS ROG STRIX SCAR ii is good in almost everything.

cant believe i got a GTX 1060 6gb edition plus an i7 8750h and 16gb ram config. for 96,990 rs. (mrp is 1lakh 40 thousand), loving flipkart for this. This got the best cooling n ips screen right now for this price range. can run literally any game @60fps 1080p ,ultra- high mix of settings, got delivered in 2 days -excellent product

bought it a month ago for a good deal, so consider this a review after one month. im a engineering student who does casual gaming, video editing along with other study related tasks like doing autocad, solidworks, matlab and stuff. im sure most of you can relate with this. so talking about the laptop, it is a monster. great laptop for the price point ( got a GTX 1060 for around the same rate as GTX 1050ti laptops with the sane specs). so getting into the good stuff
# The processor and graphics combo: man! this is just too good, any demanding tasks could be easily done without breaking a sweat. For gaming, any newer AAA titles you throw at it run like butter on medium-high settings ( For the older ones like CS-GO, battlefield 1, ultra settings are also playable) >60fps.
#The looks: Be sure to raise some eyebrows wherever you carry this badboy! The top lid shines bright due to the brushed aluminum panel and the red air vents behind the laptop make it look even cooler!
#3)PredatorSense: The gamer friendly app! Control fan speed, monitor CPU,GPU temperatures, overclock graphics, this app can do it all.
#4)Screen: Honestly, i was expecting a mediocre screen, but this one turned up to be surprisingly good! I could easily work outdoors on 75 percent brightness, and the color quality was awesome for a 60Hz screen!
#5) 16 gigs of RAM, baby!: i mean! what more can you expect, 16 gigs SODIMM 2666 MHZ RAM.. more than enough, even if you are a heavy gamer!
#6)The speakers and keyboard: The speakers are not the best at producing bass but they are well beyond average for a laptop, the volume was enough to fill a small room (or a car) and there doesn't seem to be any distortion at max volume. The keyboard is great, i could type on hours together without being fatigued! The red backlighting is a cherry on top of the cake..
so the dark side? yes, did find a few flaws
#1) The thermals (obviously): The cooling is not as good as advertised. It is fine if you are, you know going through documents, reading books, listening to music, watching a movie (it barely crosses 50°C). but if you are going to consider gaming for long hours non stop, this one is going to blow steam at your face ( not literally..), after playing far cry 5 for 3 hours, the max temperature reading was 98° C and it started throttling hard, woah! i mean, what is that! even under max fans, the max temperature was 92°C after 4 hours but the great news is that it doesn't throttle under max fan speed! ( average stays around 85°), i understand that FC5 is a demanding game but these temperatures are too high.. But, the laptop was fine for gaming like a stretch of an hour or a half, the temperatures were around 82°.(yet to try undervolting the CPU and GPU)
P.S:If the temperatures cross 90°, turn the game off and max the fans and leave it be for 5 minutes. Go get a coffee if you will.The temperatures drop to 55/60 and then resume gaming.. this helps a lot!
#2) Screen: ( not a big issue) as i said, its bright! it gets hard to read word documents in the dark even at minimum brightness.( This is if you're a nocturnal)
#3)Fingerprint magnet: not a huge problem tho.
Benchmarks:Haven't played much games yet but the ones i did, ( used MSI afterburner for benchmarking)
Far cry 5, 1080p ultra settings: 63 fps avg
Mordern warfare, 1080p, highest settings: 260 fps avg ( holy smokes!)
CS-GO, 1080p,highest settings: 200fps average
Rainbow 6: siege, ultra settings, 1080p: 140 fps average
Overall, excellent laptop. Definitely would recommend. .

This is The best laptop in the world with a very high end specs under this price range. But only one disadvantage is the battery backup. All other is very nice and I like it very much.
