From next month you will be able to buy a gaming laptop for the same price as a Peugeot or Skoda hatchback. Ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Acer unveiled its Predator 21 X gaming laptop claimed to be the world’s first curved screen notebook.
For the princely sum of $8,999 in the US and €9,999 in Europe (which converts to around £8,550), the Predator 21 X has a 7th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, five cooling fans and nine heat pipes, and dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs. It also includes Acer Dust Defender, which reportedly removes dust build-up and improves heat dissipation, and Acer’s CoolBoost app, that helps cool it down during particularly heavy use. All of this is powered by 64GB of DDR4-2400 memory, up to four 512GB solid state drives and a 7200 RPM hard drive of 1TB capacity.
The 21-inch IPS display has 2560 x 1080 resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate and eye-tracking technology from Tobii. This lets gamers spot enemies, aim and take cover by gazing at objects on the screen in certain titles including Elite Dangerous, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Watch Dogs 2.
