The World’s Most Powerful Laptop!


The World's Most Powerful Laptop Transcript

Hey how’s it going Dave 2d here this is something very special from Acer it’s the predator 21 X 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 want blocks things but because this one’s kind of special I thought I’d share the experience with [Music] you [Music] this is so big you know why they needed such a large box Wow okay why so happy oh okay I got to see this I gotta see what it looks like okay this is surprisingly heavy I knew would be heavy but doesn’t heavier than I thought it would be okay oh now I’m going to put this aside for two seconds while I look at the inside to see what else is in here this looks like a weapon Kasich if I like went to a weapons dealer and you showed me what I’m going to buy this quick lesson this cool we have a trackpad oh it’s got a number pad on the bottom but it’s like a trackpad slash number pad okay you must have to switch that in now you get pamphlets oh no it’s key oh this is so cool okay I’m assuming this has like removable WASD keys and removable spacebar or maybe for like I don’t we’ll see that’s pretty cool I should take this stuff out cause I’m going to plug it up in a minute we get to very large AC adapters to power this thing I want to see what this looks like on the inside because this is special holy smokes you could get a serious workout just lifting this thing all the time oh okay I love the blue keys this keyboard it’s so weird seeing this type of keyboard in a laptop but this is like like your regular desktop people and it’s a mechanical I think it’s mechanical feels it could be like 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 thought 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 oh that’s satisfying click does it come out okay and you just flip it when you want number pad and when you want trackpad okay I need to boot this up now I didn’t go through the exterior features while I open 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 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 and games but the color accuracy and brightness on this thing are fantastic the other thing that’s really cool is that is a refresh rate of a hundred and twenty Hertz this games are going to look really good on this thing my only suggestion if you happen to be one of the 300 people to get one of these is to do this you’re to use it’s perfect now it’s like customized to the way that your hands naturally rest 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 ah might give him this too much pressure that means only $9,000 oh it’s coming apart yes we’re in hard drive to RAM sticks I’m going to see the underside now four empty slots two more sticks of RAM Wi-Fi card so the inside is pretty simple to access if you need to get in there so you’re able to run a lot of storage on this thing five 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 kind of keeps it in one package I’m going to post some specs I’m not going to go into too much detail but this is as low as a laptop guess 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 kind of 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 of this thing has alright I want to play some games let’s put this thing to the test the framerate on this thing is friggin amazing my ultimate is charging 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 fan the 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 kind of 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 those things this thing is incredible amazing performance amazing device limited editions pretty cool hope you guys enjoy this video thumbs be likes it substitute it see you guys next time [Music]
