CES 2017: The $9,000 Acer Predator 21 X is the World's First Curved Laptop
Reavealed at CES 2017, the Acer Predator 21 X takes the definition of “laptop” to its limits.
The Acer Predator 21 X, revealed at CES 2017, is the world’s first curved screen laptop, and it's utterly decadent. This “everything but the kitchen sink” gaming laptop features components that would make high-end desktops jealous. The Acer Predator 21 X crowning feature is its first for a notebook curved 21-inch 2560x1080 curved display with 120Hz refresh rate. This laptop also features NVIDIA G-Sync and Tobii eye-tracking tech, which makes the built-in monitor even more ridiculous in comparison to its peers.
Along with the stellar display, the Predator 21 X features an Intel i7-7820HK processors, Dual SLI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, and 64GB of DDR4-2400 memory. You can also equip the laptop with up to four 512 GB SSDs in RAID 0 and a 7200 RPM 1TB HDD.
To cool this massive 19lb laptop, the system includes five system fans, including three ultra-thin AeroBlade metal fans, and nine heat pipes. The keyboard features Cherry MX Brown switches with fully programmable LED backlighting and a unique number pad that can be flipped over to reveal a precision touchpad.
The Predator 21 X also has a killer sound system for a laptop. It includes two tweeters, two midrange speakers, and two subwoofers to produce an excellent aural experience. The fully featured Acer Predator 21 X commands a premium for its features, though. The laptop will be available in February with prices starting at $8,999.
