The Acer Predator 21X is the world’s first curved-screen laptop


Acer has unveiled some new laptops at IFA in Germany, including the utterly monstrous curved-display 21-inch Predator 21X. Acer says it’s the world’s first laptop with a curved screen.

The new Predator 21X laptop sits at the very top of Acer’s gaming laptop range. The curved screen, which has a resolution of 2560×1080, is powered by two of Nvidia’s latest mobile GTX 1080 graphics cards. The screen is G-Sync enabled, too.

CPU-wise, the laptop has a new 7th-gen Kaby Lake Intel Core processor, but we don’t know exactly which model. Given the laptop’s desktop-replacement aspirations we are probably looking at some kind of quad-core 45W TDP chip, rather than one of the dual-core low-power parts unveiled by Intel this week. Intel isn’t planning to release its quad-core Kaby Lake parts until the first quarter of 2017—which incidentally is when the Predator 21X is meant to go on sale.
