The mothership has landed
Acer Predator 21 X makes its Malaysian debut, alongside Predator XB2 series gaming monitors.
The world’s first notebook with a curved display, the Acer Predator 21 X, has arrived in Malaysia. Not just any ordinary curved display, mind you, but a 21-inch NVIDIA G-SYNC curved IPS display, which has a curvature of 2000R, a resolution of 2,560 x 1,080, a refresh rate of 120Hz, and a 4ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time.
Inside the belly of the beast resides an overclockable 7th generation Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards running in SLI, 64GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, two 512GB NVMe SSDs running in RAID 0 configuration, and a 1TB 7,200RPM hard drive. For a gaming notebook with an astronomical price tag of RM39,999, you really shouldn’t expect anything less.
The Predator 21 X also comes loaded with an assortment of nifty features as well, including an RGB backlit mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches, a column of programmable shortcut keys, and most interestingly, a detachable numeric keypad that can be flipped over to be used as a trackpad.
It’s no surprise that with such a chunky chassis, the Predator 21 X is able to accommodate all the essential connectivity ports, including four USB 3.0 ports (one with power-off charging), one USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 Thunderbolt 3 port, an SD card reader, an audio in/out port, two DisplayPorts, one HDMI port, and most importantly, an Ethernet port.
You can expand the screen real estate of the Predator 21 X even further by hooking it up to the new 24.5-inch Predator XB252Q and 27-inch Predator XB272 gaming monitors, which have a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution, a lightningfast 1ms GTG response time, and a 240Hz refresh rate. The smaller of the two monitors is yours for RM2,399, while its slightly larger sibling retails for RM2,599.
