PC gaming is a very serious business. In fact, in 2016 alone, PC gaming saw around $36 billion in revenues. That is why OEMs (original equipment manufacturer) are trying to push the boundaries of PC gaming. The same can be said for the new gaming laptop monster from Acer, the Acer Predator 21X gaming laptop.

The Acer Predator 21X is a behemoth of a machine. It sports a 21-inch curved display and a hardware that will put a desktop PC to shame. However, before you get your wallet and head to the nearest game shop, be forewarned. This thing will cost anyone who wants it an arm and a leg.

With its $9,000 price tag, anyone will wonder what exactly does this monstrosity do. To begin with, as mentioned earlier, the Predator 21X has a 21-inch curved display with a screen resolution of 2150×1080 pixels. And if that?s not enough, the display is controlled by two NVIDIA Gefotce GTX 1080 graphics cards under SLI.

Other features include eye-tracking via the Tobii eye-tracking technology. A full-sized mechanical Cherry MX keyboard is also included for that precision movement as well as six speakers. As for cooling, users need not worry as it packs five cooling fans to keep the system from overheating. Full-time gaming has never been this worry-free.

Unfortunately, although it is considered a laptop, putting the Predator 21X on your lap may result to bodily harm. The gaming laptop weighs a bone-crushing 17 pounds. Perhaps a sturdy table is in order for anyone wanting to play with it.
