The Acer Predator 21 X Is A Monstrous Gaming Laptop With Its Own Wheels
Gaming laptops of today are monstrous machines with god-like computing and processing powers. They are capable of running heavy-duty games and programs without batting an eyelid. And in most cases, they also require an arm and a leg to own. The Acer Predator X 21 is one such beast.
The gargantuan gaming laptop from the Taiwanese electronics company is a machine that costs $9,000 to own, CNet says. For that price, a gamer gets a screen that's curvier than curved screen TVs and a smashing 21-inch display, a 2560x1080 resolution and 120Hz G-Sync capability. It may come as a surprise to many that it is not a 3440x1440 panel instead. However, the Acer Predator X 21 is the only one that exists with a curved 21-inch panel right now.
Of course, while screen size and resolution are important, the CPU and GPU matter more. For an immersive and smooth gaming experience, the gaming laptop runs on an Intel Core i7-7820HK processor. It is complemented by two GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs in Scalable Link Interface or SLI. Partnered with 64GB DDR4 SDRAM, 1 TB HDD and 1 TB SDD, users can play all the games they want.
PC Gamer also lists other specifications that go along with Acer Predator X 21. There are 5 USB ports; four 3.0 and one Type-C. The laptop also has HDMI and DisplayPort. There are also six speakers embedded in the machine so external speakers are not necessary. Software-wise, the laptop ships with Windows 10 64-bit.
The laptop also has a few gimmicks that go with it. For example, the number pad can be flipped to become a touch pad. There is also the magnetic wrist rest for when a gamer needs wrist support. Plus, it has a Tobii eye-tracking camera that shifts the display with the help of the user's eyes.
Furthermore, the Acer Predator X 21 system (including its gigantic power bricks), weigh in at 26 lbs. Therefore, it is not something anybody can lug around anywhere. But if the need is real, then it has got its own two-wheeled suitcase.
