  • Hey, how's it going? Dave2D here! This is something very special from Acer, it's the Predator 21X.
  • So this box has a laptop in it. It's huge.
  • It's the biggest, it's the heaviest, it's the most expensive laptop in the world.
  • And I normally don't unbox things, but because this one's kinda special,
  • I'd though I'd share the experience with you.
  • [Sick gainz]
  • This is so big.
  • I don't know why they needed such a large box.
  • *Wow.*
  • Okay.
  • Oh my f***... this is so heavy!
  • *Laughing.*
  • Oh my god.
  • Okay.
  • I gotta see this, I gotta see what it looks like.
  • Okay, this is surprisingly heavy. I knew it would be heavy, but this heavier than I thought it would be.
  • Okay.
  • Now I'm going to put this aside for just two seconds, while I look at the inside.
  • Let's see what else is in here.
  • This looks like a weapons case, like if I like, went to a weapons dealer,
  • and he showed me what I was going to buy, this is what it would look like.
  • What is this?!
  • Cool.
  • We have a trackpad.
  • Oh, it's got a numberpad on the bottom. But it's like a trackpad/numberpad.
  • Okay, you must be able to switch that in and out.
  • You get...
  • ...pamphlets.
  • Oh no, it's keys. Aghh, this is so cool!
  • Okay, I'm assuming this has removable WASD keys.
  • And a removable space bar, maybe for, like, I don't know, we'll see.
  • That's pretty cool.
  • I should take this stuff out, 'cause what I'm going to--plug it up in a minute.
  • We get two very large AC adapters to power this thing.
  • I want to see what this looks like on the inside.
  • 'Cause this is special.
  • Holy smokes, you could get a serious workout just lifting this thing...
  • ...all the time.
  • Ohh... kay.
  • I love the blue keys. This keyboard-- it's so weird!
  • Seeing this type of keyboard in a laptop. Like this is like your regular desktop keyboard.
  • And it's a mechanical-- I think it's mechanical.
  • Feels...
  • It could be like a... a Cherry Brown, or like a Brown switch?
  • This feels like a really nice keyboard, and it's weird to have this kind of key travel and this type of tactility.
  • In a laptop? Are you kidding me?!
  • Okay, this is cool.
  • I though this would be a sticker, but it's not. This looks like it's, like, painted right in.
  • Okay, look at this.
  • Limited edition, 17 out of 300. That's pretty cool.
  • Okay, this shows you how you can use...
  • ...this thing.
  • So you can... okay I get it.
  • So you just plug it up.
  • Oh it's magnetic!
  • Ohh!
  • That satisfying click.
  • Does it come out? Okay, and you can just flip it.
  • When you want numberpad,
  • and when you want...
  • ...trackpad.
  • Okay, I need to boot this up.
  • Now I didn't go through the exterior features while I opened this,
  • because quite frankly, I was, like, super excited to just boot it up and see it.
  • But now that I've looked at this for a second, the build quality is so good,
  • there's no play or flex on any parts of this laptop.
  • The screen is probably one of the most unique features on this thing,
  • and it's a curved screen, and I've never actually used a gaming laptop that had a curved screen.
  • This might be the first one of its existence.
  • The whole reason why you have curved screens is to give you that extra level of immersion in games.
  • But the color accuracy and brightness on this thing are fantastic.
  • The other thing that's really cool is that it's a refresh rate of 120Hz.
  • Games are going to look really good on this thing.
  • My only suggestion if you happen to be one of the 300 people that get one of these,
  • is to do this to your keys.
  • It's perfect, now it's, like, customized to the way that your hand naturally rests.
  • There's an eye tracking thing down here, I've never been a user of Tobii eye tracking.
  • I've seen people, like, play games directly off of this, but I've never tried it myself.
  • So... it says caution over here, but I'm going to crack it open.
  • I should power this down.
  • Okay, we're going in.
  • I'm curious to see what's inside this thing.
  • Uhhhhhhhh, am I giving this too much pressure?
  • I mean, it's *only* $9,000.
  • Aghh, it's coming apart, yes! We're in.
  • Hard drive.
  • 2 RAM sticks.
  • I'm going to see the underside now.
  • Four M2 slots, two more sticks of RAM, WiFi card.
  • So the inside's pretty simple to access, if you need to get in there.
  • So you're able to run a lot of storage on this thing.
  • 5 drive bays, you probably won't need any kind of external storage.
  • The Predator 21X uses two AC adapters, each one of these is 330 watts, it's a lot of juice going through here.
  • And they both connect into this rubber housing, which kinda keeps it in one package.
  • I'm going to port some specs, I'm not going to go into too much detail, but this is as loaded as a laptop gets.
  • It's beyond impressive.
  • In terms of the speakers, they don't sound bad, but I think for a laptop this size,
  • I had unrealistic expectations, I kinda thought it would sound amazing.
  • They do get louder than your average laptop, though.
  • The SLI GTX 1080s are incredibly powerful.
  • This is the stuff that dream desktops are made of, and then when you put it into a laptop form,
  • it becomes even crazier.
  • I ran some benchmarks, just to see how it would compare,
  • it performs like a crazy powerful desktop, it's insane how much horsepower this thing has.
  • Alright, I want to play some games. Let's put this thing to the test.
  • The framerate on this thing is fricking amazing.
  • One thing I just noticed, the fan noise when you're idling is surprisingly quiet.
  • I thought this thing would be significantly louder, because it's a pretty powerful processor.
  • But even when you're playing games, if you're on the default mode, it's pretty quiet.
  • ah
  • The external temperatures are very comfortable, even when you're playing games.
  • When I'm running benchmarks, there is some thermal throttling on the default mode.
  • But if you crank up the fans, that throttling disappears, and you can overclock it pretty generously.
  • I don't know if the mic will pick it up, but the fans are on full tilt right now, and it's loud.
  • Obviously this is a very powerful laptop, but whether or not it's worth it,
  • chances are, if you're watching this video, and you're kinda wondering whether or not you should buy it,
  • this is not for you.
  • But, if you want to live the dream, and you have the money for this thing, this thing is incredible.
  • Amazing performance, amazing device, limited edition, pretty cool.
  • Hope you guys enjoyed this video. Thumbs if you liked it, subs if you loved it! I'll see you guys next time.
