You've seen it on advertisements, and it's about time you see it in person. The world's first curved screen laptop, the Acer Predator 21X has gone beyond horizons and it has finally landed in Malaysia and this beast is taking Acer's gaming brand, Predator's position in the gaming industry to a whole new level.

As mentioned before, the Predator 21X is the first laptop in the world that features a curved 21-inch IPS display with 2560 x 1080 resolution display and 120Hz refresh rate. It comes with an overclockable 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, two 8GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 graphic cards in SLI (Scalable Link Interface) and 64GB of DDR4-2400 memory, the Predator 21X takes the AAA gaming experience to new heights. Offering an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio, the laptop’s curved screen features NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology to ensure smooth and sharp gameplay. Combined with wide-angle viewing, gamers can enjoy a truly immersive gaming experience. In addition to great visuals, the Predator 21 X is also equipped with SoundPound 4.2+ that has 4 speakers and 2 subwoofers, a 3-way Hi-Fi design makes sure what you hear is clean, crisp and weighted with bass and Dolby® Audio Premium for pristine aural enjoyment.

The laptop is also integrated with Tobii eye-tracking technology that consists of illuminators and cameras that complement keyboards, mice and gamepads as an input method. Simply look at the objects on the screen to identify enemies, aim, take cover, and many more actions. This monster of a laptop has a 5-fan cooling system to maintain a constant cool, where three of it are ultra-thin full metal Predator AeroBlade™. With these, the Predator 21 X is capable of keeping all its features running at optimal temperatures via effective thermal management for super-smooth performance during intense gaming sessions. Before you know it, you might just forget its producing heat at all. All 5 fans have another trick up their sleeves, or should I say their blades, whereby the 5-fan cooling system can spin in the opposite direction and alternates the airflow to prevent dust buildup, Acer calls it the Predator DustDefender™.

The Predator 21X is further fortified with a full-sized mechanical keyboard featuring Cherry® MX Brown switches that offers a super-responsive tactile feedback and pure precision for fast and accurate gaming experiences. Its numeric keypad can also be flipped over and turned into a Precision Touchpad. Each backlit keys on the keyboard offers 16.7 million colour options and it is programmable through the preloaded PredatorSense software, which is also the ultimate tool for you to take command over overclocking, game profiles, fan control and more.


There are only 300 units available worldwide and Malaysia has only ONE unit for sale and it costs a bomb, RM39,999.00 to be exact, making this laptop even more valuable. Acer Sales & Services Sdn Bhd General Manager of Products, Sales and Marketing, Chan Weng Hong said, “The Predator 21 X along with Acer’s wide range of gaming devices reinforces our commitment to premium gaming with discerning enthusiasts around the world in mind. The Predator 21 X is Acer’s flagship gaming laptop and is advanced beyond anything available in the market today.”

The Predator 21X comes with a custom ultra-durable Pelican carrying case which securely stores the device and accessories.
