Acer Shows Off a 21-inch "Laptop"

Acer is trying to redefine the word "Laptop". They have just shows off their new 21-inch Predator 21X and it's absolutely massive. Previously, large laptops have been capped at 17-inches, but now those feel quite small by comparison. This unit packs a massive 21-inch curved display running a nice 2160x1080p that is powered by two GTX 1080 graphics cards. It may not be day-to-day portable, but this is a heck-uv-a LAN rig!

I checked it out here at IFA and it looks even bigger in person, if you can believe that. It is simply massive. An Acer spokesperson even told us it weighs a whopping 8 kg (17.7 pounds). Still, that giant screen with its 2,560 x 1,080 resolution does do a lot to immerse you in gameplay, and I can see it being used to watch movies as well. But the insanity doesn't stop there.
