[TheVerge] Acer's predator 21 X puts a curved screen and dual GTX 1080s in a laptop

Acer’s new Predator 21 X is a monster. Not only have this machine’s designers put a curved 21-inch display on a laptop for the first time ever, they’ve also gone and given it two GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs as well. Add in five cooling fans, a 7th-generation Intel Core K-series processor, and space for as much as four terabytes of SSD storage, and you have a laptop that’s beyond obscene.

Edit: The screen resolution is 2560x1080p so it is a Ultrawide screen.

EDIT 2: Let's guess the price... 3999$ ?

All I know from my life experiences is that there really is a market for everything. Will surely be a niche but there are Golden plated super sportscars there for people who just want to spend the extra cash lol redface.gif

This isn't a laptop, this is an All In One with a small screen as there is no way anyone is going to carry this 8KG monstrosity around unless they want a hernia.

 

The price of this thing will reflect its ridiculous looks and weight.

A lot of people in Japan don't have desktops because of space shortage so there is a market for this, how big is yet to be seen but there will be people who buy it.

I actually really like this laptop, is that bad? tongue.gif If you're going to go for desktop replacement-big, might as well go the whole way!

No way would I ever be able to afford this biggrin.gif

Yeah I like it too to be honest wubsmiley.gif

Only thing I would change is the screen with a 3440x1440p one instead of 2560x1080p.

This has to be the boldest indirect way of saying 'I am single and I intend to keep it that way' I've ever seen.

This is way too big to even be considered a laptop.
Not my cup of tea but I'm sure some people might purchase that.
