Acer has finally done it, create a gaming laptop that not only plays like a beast but sort of looks like one. Just look at that beautiful catastrophe. I’m pretty sure this latest gaming laptop by Acer called the Predator 21X will start turning heads if only to make sure you are not being followed by it.
For those gaming nerds who wants to put on some extra workout; at almost 18 pounds, carrying one of these would be a nightmare. So the portable laptop tag is a bit of a stretch. But I guess that would be all worth it considering it has a massive 21 inches 2,560 X 1,080 resolution curved screen that is just a sight to behold when handling gaming media and movies.
Under the hood, the Acer Predator 21X is just as monstrous as its external appearance. It features two of the newest Nvidia GTX graphics cards and it is also equipped with the latest Intel Core i7 processor.
The sides of this beast are quite massive. It has large ventilation holes, with fancy lighting, and five fans to keep it cool. Three of those fans are AeroBlade metal for much efficient cooling.
According to the Notebookreview, they tried several games on the Acer Predator 21X unit and the results were quite stellar. They reported the gaming experience as loading and performed fluidly and with no discernable lag.
The trackpad of this laptop is hidden underneath a removable trackpad. Pretty neat trick if you ask me. According to Engadget, this Acer machine has another feature under its sleeve, as it has a Tobii eye tracking technology that lets you aim at your enemy target with the use of your eyes. Now go home and think about that the next time you are playing a round of “The Division” with your boring keyboard and mouse.
The laptop’s mechanical keyboard is just perfect for all the gamers out there. Its Cherry MX switches won’t have that “clicky” feeling and would make you feel as if your command has actually registered when pressing down a key. It also has an RGB led under each of they key… because why not?
This baby also packs some good sound gear. It has a 4.2-channel audio system with two subwoofers. That is a lot of pop for your games and movies.
Unfortunately, no information has been given yet regarding battery life. But looking at that monstrosity and all those pieces of machinery inside it, it’s a pretty much a safe bet that it uses up juice fast, despite looking like it can last two separate apocalypses.
If you want a gaming laptop that has both power and (somewhat) portable, then you should really keep your eyes glued for this awesome rig. The Acer Predator 21X will start shipping next year. And hopefully won’t become self-aware for the next ten years.
