Today in “WHY?” may I present the Acer Predator 21 X. A “gaming” laptop with a 21″ screen that tips the scales at a whopping 8 kilograms.
Just so you can appreciate the sheer size of this thing, that’s a 12″ MacBook comfortably nestled inside the behemoth. There’s no information on how long it took for the reporter to regain feeling in his legs after removing the Predator.
Seriously, really? An 8 kilo laptop? I use an old Mac Pro on my desk and I’m pretty sure it’s not much heavier than this beast. Fancy curved screen or not. If you’ve got $12K ($9K US) to blow on a laptop, call me. We’ll set you up with something MUCH nicer, far more portable, and won’t set fire to your legs. We’ll leave $8K or so in your pocket.
