The Acer Predator 21 X is surely a treat to watch because of its gigantic 21-inch curved IPS display panel (Some say it is 21.5). The screen comes with the G-Sync technology and a refresh rate of 120Hz.
Besides the huge screen, the other specifications are also breathtaking. Take a look!
- Intel Core i7-7820HK (2.9GHz-3.9GHz)
- Curved 21-inch screen with G-Sync technology and 2,560×1,080p IPS display
- 64GB DDR4-2400MHz RAM
- Dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GDDR5X 8GB in SLI
- 2 of the 512GB NVMe PCIe Toshiba XG3 SSDs
- 1 HDMI port, 2 DisplayPorts, 4 USB 3.0 (Type A) ports and 1 Thunderbolt 3 (Type C) port
- You get a Gigabit Ethernet slot with option for a DC Jack to plug in the headphones
- A whopping 8-cell Li-Ion 88Wh/6000mAh battery with a Dual 330W power adapter
This Thing’s Limited
The Acer Predator 21X comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed and weighs around 8.5KG. Though the figure is not a much bigger one, as compared to the latest offerings of Acer itself, it feels like a bit over-weight. But I personally think that’s OK keeping in mind the added weight of multiple hardware entries.
You might feel like selling every other thing just to get this but brace yourselves for a disappointing news. Only 300 units of the Acer Predator 21X will be produced worldwide.
Tobii Eye Tracking
The Acer comes exclusively with the Tobii software which works through the webcam. This software is made to read your interaction behavior with the game and help your player perform that. Didn’t get it? Consider yourself in a situation where you want to switch the aiming point of your weapon, the Tobii software can help you do that through your real life eye-focus.
Why is it A Good Option?
The great visual experience provided by the huge 21-inch screen with the G-Sync technology and Dual GTX 1080s in SLI make it stand out of almost all other options. It won’t get heat up because of the awesome cooling system and the lighting used in the chassis makes it one fine option.
Why Shouldn’t You Be Buying It?
The limited number of units produced is the first barrier which will stop the 99.99 % of gaming freaks from buying it. If and only if you are among those 0.01% people, you won’t be able to call it a ‘Laptop’ as it’s actually not one by any definition.
