Acer has unveiled the world's first curved laptop, a $9,000 gaming beast called the Predator 21 X.

The machine offers a screen resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a 7th-gen Intel Core i7-7820HK Kaby Lake processor paired with not just one, but two GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI configuration — in laymen's terms, it's a whopper.

All that power is bundled with 64GB of RAM, and enough room for five storage drives – one 1TB HDD and four 512GB SSDs. You'll also find a full keyboard with Cherry MX Brown key switches, a numeric keypad which doubles up as a precision touchpad, four speakers, two power supplies, five cooling fans, and nine heating pipes. The latter two give it a very Lamborghini Aventador-style look at the back.

Gaming laptops don't exactly have a good a reputation when it comes to size and weight (and this one will only tarnish it further) but who cares when it's this powerful? Check out the promo video below, then sign up for updates on its availability here.
