Acer Predator 21X Monstrous Curved Display Laptop (6.99 lakh)

Acer Predator 21X is a monster, and I mean it literally. Most of the time literally is misused, but not this time. The Acer Predator 21X comes with a 21 Inch Quad HD resolution Curved Display with 120 Hz refresh rate.

A laptop with a curved display is unheard off. That too, as big as 21-inches, most gaming laptops are either 15.6-inches or max 17-inches.

Acer Predator 21X First Curved Monitor Laptop

Acer Predator 21X is a desktop equivalent, not a portable laptop; it weighs enormously high – 8 Kg. How to carry this outlandish, vogue creation? But this is just the beginning of the description of this incredible feat of engineering.

Acer and Flipkart are getting this mean machine to India, at a heart-wrenching price of Rs. 6,99,999. More details on pricing and availability at the end of the article.

The Acer Predator 21X comes with a 2560 x 1080 IPS display with a matte finish. Two Nvidia GTX 1080 graphics cards are running in SLI. One GTX 1080 is enough to max out most games; two cards are a dream addition to any gaming rig.

The Laptop is powered by the top of the line Intel Kaby lake 7th generation Quad-Core Processor Core i7 7820 (HK). The processor has a base clock speed of 2.9 GHz and a Boost clock speed of 3.9 GHz. There is 64 GB of DDR4 high-speed RAM to ensure every game runs smoothly, and you can even do multi-tasking without a glitch.

Acer Predator 21X arrives in India

The laptop comes with Tobi eye tracking mechanism, an RGB backlit gaming mechanical keyboard.  This insane laptop comes with 512 GB (NVMe) SSD and also has a 1 TB drive. The Predator 21x can prey on all other gaming laptops without burping.

Also, the Acer Predator 21X comes with a superior cooling solution to keep the heat under control, with a better airflow design. It comes with a neat trick that Lenovo showcased at the launch in Berlin, during IFA 2016; the numeric pad can be turned over to convert it into a touchpad. The numeric pad area transforms into a track-pad so you can easily navigate. It does not have a dedicated trackpad area like most laptops, as the majority of gamers use an external mouse.

The keyboard is also unusual, as it has mechanical keys (Cherry MX Brown) with backlighting support.

Acer Predator Price and Availablity in India

Last but not the least, it comes with monstrous Price of $8999 in the US, but it is still cheap in the US compared to Rs 6.99 lakhs in India ( translates to USD 10,447). A terrible markup for India price, a country with a far low per-capita income, earning potential than America. The world is not fair, and it is more unfair to gamers.

The laptop will be available on Flipkart and some exclusive Acer stores, mostly in the big cities. Flipkart will start shipping the Predator 21X from 18th December 2017, to a handful of buyers with deep pockets, or to the new Bitcoin millionaires who are finding it hard to discover new spending avenues.

It is probably the most expensive laptop anyone can dream of buying. For commoners like me, it is even beyond dreams. I even don’t dream of the new iPhone X or the iMac Pro, and neither should you.

Also, Acer launched some more affordable gaming laptops, Acer Predator Helios 300, and the VX 15 and the VX 17 Predator. The Predator Helios 300 is available for Rs. 99,999 while the VX 15 and VX 17 are priced over 1.5 lakhs.
