Acer Predator 21x
Acer unveiled the world’s first laptop with a curved screen, the Acer Predator 21x. Actually it’s more like a desktop, you will know why in a bit.
It is very nice to look at and also very big. Its huge size is partly due to its massive 21in, 2,560 x 1,080 curved screen.
The Acer 21x has two Nvidia GTX 1080 GPUs and has two power supplies to power it. The Predator has a total of five fans and a 7th generation Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processor. It also has up to 4TB of SSD storage.
The laptop has a mechanical keyboard that uses Cherry MX switches, with RGB backlighting under each key. Above the keyboard is a triangular window used to show off the fans inside.
On the left-hand side of the keyboard are macro keys that can be used to fire off specialized commands in-game. On the side you’ll find a pair of full-sized USB ports alongside a microphone and headphone jack.
It has a removable side panel that instantly converts from a number pad to a track pad.
It even has Tobii eye-tracking built in, which allows you to peer around levels and change camera angles by focusing on certain parts of the screen with your eyes.
The Acer Predator 21x weighs around 8kg.
Price and availability
Acer has yet to announce pricing. It is expected to be launched in Q1 next year.
