Acer Predator 21 X Curved Laptop

Although curved displays are a relatively new development in the world of computers and television, they’ve made some pretty big waves and promise (at least to some degree) to remain a part of our immediate technological future. And there are a few arguments to support their value – from their more immersive feel, to the perception of a wider field of view, to a contrast improvement of between 1.5 to 1.8 times more than a standard flat screen. And it has become clear that Samsung and LG are the showrunners for the push toward curved displays. Or, rather, were. Because Acer has entered the field with a product type that had been previously untouched: a folding laptop.

But Acer’s Predator 21 X – the 21 stands for the number of diagonal inches of screen space – isn’t just the world’s first curved-monitor laptop; it’s also an impressive machine operation-wise. It features a 2560 x 1080 resolution G-SYNC display, twin NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI graphics cards, Acer’s gaming-centric eye-tracking technology, and an RGB mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches. And to handle the included tech, there are 5 onboard cooling fans. There aren’t any details regarding the release date or MSRP of this computational colossus as of yet, but expect to see more of it within the next few months.
