Acer Predator 21 X

Acer has unveiled the world’s first curved laptop, a $9,000 gaming beast called the Predator 21 X.

The machine offers a screen resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 7th-gen Intel Core i7-7820HK Kaby Lake processor paired with not just one, but two GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI configuration — in laymen’s terms, it’s a whopper.

All that power is bundled with 64GB of RAM, and enough room for five storage drives – one 1TB HDD and four 512GB SSDs. You’ll also find a full keyboard with Cherry MX Brown key switches, a numeric keypad which doubles up as a precision touchpad, four speakers, two power supplies, five cooling fans, and nine heating pipes. The latter two give it a very Lamborghini Aventador-style look at the back.

Gaming laptops don’t exactly have a good a reputation when it comes to size and weight (and this one will only tarnish it further) but who cares when it’s this powerful?
