When we think of curved displays, we think of monitors, TVs, and we guess to a certain extent thanks to Samsung, smartphones. However it looks like Acer wants us to start thinking about curved screens in laptops as well, thanks to the announcement of the Predator 21 X, the first laptop in the world to sport a curved display.
In case you’re wondering what the fuss is, it has been suggested that curved displays tend to offer up a more immersive experience. Whether or not you agree with that assessment is a debate for another day, but in the recent years, curved displays are becoming increasingly common.
That being said, what kind of specs are we looking at? According to Acer, the Predator 21 X will feature sport a 21-inch 2560×1080 display and will be powered by Intel’s latest 7th generation Core processors. There will also be Tobii eye-tracking technology which should help one’s gaming experience.
It will also pack 5 cooling fans, and dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI setup, meaning that this laptop will pretty much offer up a desktop class gaming experience in a portable form factor. It also comes with SoundPound 4.2+ speakers, 3-way audio and Dolby Audio technology.
It even manages to pack a full-sized mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches and customizable RGB backlight settings for each key. Its numberpad can also be flipped around and turned into a touchpad if that’s what you’re after. Unfortunately there’s on word on pricing or availability yet, but given its specs and features, expect to pay more than a pretty penny for it.
