Acer's beastly 21-inch curved-screen laptop starts at $8,999


Good old CES week

Acer is bringing out a beast of a portable gaming machine, the Predator 21X, next month.

It’s a 21-inch laptop with a curved IPS display (2560 x 1080 resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate), built-in Tobii eye-tracking tech, a full-sized mechanical keyboard, a pair of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080s running in SLI, an Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, 64GB of RAM, and up to four 512GB SSDs.

How much is too much? Such questions weren’t asked. The naysayer of the group was asked to leave the room. The Predator 21X starts at $8,999 and will ship in North America starting in February.

Given the name and steep cost, I feel like this thing should maybe come with a cloaking device. And considering its presumed weight, it could probably stand to include a gym membership as well.
