Get ready to go beyond the horizons with Acer’s newest product, the Predator 21 X Gaming Laptop.

Fully equipped with a 21-inch curved screen, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card, Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, 64GB DDR2-2400 memory, a 512GB solid state drive capacity, 7200 RPM hard drive with a 1TB capacity. This laptop can handle every game, application, and software thrown its way with perfection and not only that but can basically handle being tackled by a professional football player since it weighs in at a nearly 20 pounds.

With precious hardware like that, it is no surprise that extra protection is needed, the laptop has five built-in system fans and nine heat pipes compared to the previous Predator 17 X that had two.

Built to compete in esports, there’s a full mechanical keyboard with cherry MX brown switches, precision touchpad that also reveals a numeric keyboard, and even managed to fit four speakers and two subwoofers.

All of that awesomeness compacted into one device, there has to be a high price tag right? Correct. The Acer Predator 21 X will be priced at nearly $9,000. A hefty price for even the wealthiest of gamers.

Clearly this laptop is able to compete with any gaming rig thrown at it, however I don’t see this being a hit with consumers considering its high price tag and its size. Most laptops are made for travel usage and being able to play on-the-go, this laptop would defeat that purpose and be a more stationary setup.

The laptop is currently on display at CES in Las Vegas and orders will start shipping in North America next month.
