Monstrous Acer’s 21-inch Curved Screen Gaming Laptop
Acer showed off new model of their laptop and it is weighed 17.6 pounds and probably eats Ultrabooks to power itself.
It is called Predator 21X, with the 21 referring to the diagonal measurement of its curved IPS display, and the X referring to the extra everything that Acer decided to cram inside its cavernous shell. It has the $5,000 price tag.
It’s powered by an Intel Kaby Lake processor and has 802.11ac+ WiFi, gigabit Ethernet, and several USB ports (two type-a and “at least” one type-c). The rest of the Predator 21X’s components aren’t exactly typical laptop fare.
The keyboard, is mechanical and uses Cherry MX switches. The Predator 21X’s numeric keypad isn’t mechanical, but it does do backflips: you can turn it over if you need a gigantic touchpad to mouse around with. It also has dual GPUs — Nvidia GTX1080s, to be specific. Sound is pumped out through four speakers and two subwoofers. Its webcam? It supports eye-tracking, so you can glare at targets in some games to lock in headshots.
Want to hook up an external monitor? Not a problem. In fact, why not hook up three? The Predator 21X has two DisplayPort and one HDMI output options.
Predator 21X can’t be powered by an ordinary laptop brick. No, it takes a pair of AC adapters to supply enough juice to keep it running. We’ll assume you can just plug them into an ordinary wall outlet.
