THE $9000 GAMING LAPTOP – The Acer Predator 21X (is it worth it?)

Hey guys Brainy here and today I’m bringing you another interesting video.

This video, in particular, is a cool gaming laptop that Acer just announced.

The only downside is that it costs $9000.

Yeah, crazy right.

But it’s true Acer announced a brand new$9000 gaming laptop known as the ACER PREDATOR 21 X.

But it’s not insanely priced so that thatAcer can make a huge profit.


Anyway, here’s a quick background on this laptop and it’s specced.

The Acer Predator 21X weighs about 19 pounds and has a 21-inch curved display with a resolution of 2560×1080.

From just looking at it. It’s easy to see that this thing is a beast, and that’s a given.

I mean that stuff has top-of-the-line IntelCore processors, and a Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics processing unit, Along with a massive case to contain it.

I mean Acer doesn’t want you breaking you$9000 laptop right? Perhaps the most interesting feature on thePredator is eye-tracking technology through a partnership with company Tobii.

Players can use the tech in games, identifying enemies or aim by just looking at a spot on the screen.

Acer says 45 games will support eye tracking.

A that in itself may attract a lot of gamers who have the budget and want to go all the way for success in their gaming experience.

Another interesting thing about this beast is that its touchpad is convertible in a way.

You can easily remove it and turn it around.

It then becomes a number pad with all your usual Numpad keys.

Regarding portability though, I don’t think that the Acer Predator stands out here mainly because of its size and weight.

Also, from what I know, it’s battery only lasts about 5 hours.

Now here are the detailed specs on this thing.

The Predator 21X uses a latest-gen Intel Corei7-7820HK chip, which is one of the most powerful processors that you can get today, two top-endNvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, a whopping 64 GB of RAM, up to four fast 512GB solid-state drives, and a 1 TB hard disk drive.

Now I already knew that this thing was a beast, but after hearing about its specs I can sort of understand why it’s priced the way it is.

I did a price check to see just how much the internals alone would cost and this is what I got.

The Intel Core i7 Processor costs about $340.

The two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards cost a total of $1280.

The 4 SSDs would be about $800, and the HDDwould be at most $100.

In total that’s about $2520.

And that’s just the basic internals.

I haven’t even factored in the price for the monitor, motherboard, power supply, or casing yet.

So, there’s a good chance that this laptop alone costs anywhere from $4000-$8000 to build.

As for the question of whether I would buy it or not if I had the budget, the answer to that is no! I’d be better off getting a $1000 laptop to get some good video editing done and also a better microphone.

So thanks for watching.
