Acer Predator G1 review


The Predator G1 is a decent machine, but savvy gamers will want more.

The Predator G1’s looks like a serious gaming powerhouse. But dig deeper, and it starts to feel like the G1 is built merely to be “good enough.” The Core i7-6700 is a strong chip, but it doesn’t hold a candle to the unlocked version found almost...

Acer Predator 21 X review: overpowered overkill


The best gaming laptop $9,000 can buy

Incredible gaming experience ; Curved screen is super immersive ; Great performance

Barely portable ; Ludicrously expensive ; Battery life is terrible ; It’s not great at anything that’s not gaming

Acer Predator 21 X


Though it costs as much as a decent used car, the Acer Predator 21 X shows how much performance and how many features you can get if you cram every possible high-end component into a gaming laptop.

Insane 3D gaming performance. Expansive 21-inch screen. Mechanical gaming keyboard. Lots of innovative features.

Extreme price tag. 18.6 pounds of hardware. Lacks 4K screen. Two power bricks.

As an example of what a manufacturer can do, given an unlimited budget, the Acer Predator 21 X mostly succeeds. It's one of the fastest laptops we've tested, with the largest screen we've seen on a portable PC. It costs as much as one of the exquisite...

This gaming laptop is $9,000 -- and worth it


The ultimate gaming laptop is priced beyond the means of mere mortals -- but you'll want it anyway.

The 21-inch curved display feels very immersive in games. There are a ton of fun features and extras, including a reversible touch/number pad, eye tracking cameras and swappable WASD keys. The mechanical keyboard is excellent for gaming.

Even these high-end components don't fully justify the price. The display has a lower resolution than we'd like, battery life is poor and moving the touchpad away from its traditional spot is never a good idea.

The limited edition Acer Predator 21 X is equal parts Insanely powerful and crazy cool -- you just need a lottery win or random inheritance to afford it.

Acer Predator G1-710-70001


A scintillating performer that's also a strong value proposition, the compact Acer Predator G1-710-70001 is the gaming desktop to beat if you want to spend less than $2,500.

Excellent hardware selection. Intriguing case design. Good gaming keyboard and mouse included.

Requires use of enormous external power adapter. Difficult to upgrade.

Conclusion Last year, the Maingear Vybe bowled us over with an outstanding selection of gaming-aimed components for an unbelievable sub-$2,000 price. The Acer Predator G1-710-70001 can't quite make it below that price mark, but offers plenty of value...

Acer Predator G1 review: A VR-ready mini monster in a suitcase


This smaller VR-ready gaming desktop has its own roll-along suitcase and a reasonable price to boot.

The Acer Predator G1 is a speedy, reasonably priced gaming desktop with a fun sense of design and an optional custom briefcase for on-the-go gaming.

Performance is slower than other similarly equipped gaming desktops; limited ports; requires two bulky external power bricks, and you've got to really like the sci-fi tank tread design.

The Acer Predator G1 isn't the fastest or even smallest VR-ready desktop, but it's powerful enough for new games and VR headsets, and has a sense of fun missing from other gaming PCs.

Crazy expensive; Lacks 4K display option; Lackluster audio ; The Acer Predator 21 X offers an excellent 21-inch curved display paired with an overclockable processor and a pair of Nvidia GPUs for an incredibly powerful gaming experience.

Acer Predator G1 Review: A lot of power in a tiny package


Acer's Predator G1-701-70001 gaming rig is here, arriving after the successful splash the G6 enjoyed . One look at the specification list is all you need to know that this is rig is a beast, but in a world where anyone can throw together...

Excellent hardware that won't be obsolete for a while ; Extremely small footprint for a gaming desktop ; Sleek exterior - this is a good looking PC

External power supply opens potential for damage ; Small form factor limits options for expansion ; Unique power supply could make upgrading components difficult

Clearly, the Predator G1 is a capable gaming rig. We knew it was going to be one going in, so it isn’t shocking to see games like The Witcher 3 and Shadow of Mordor run beautifully on the system. I appreciate what Acer is trying to do with the design,...

Acer Predator G1 Review: Small Gaming Stunner


I almost want to recommend the Predator G1 on looks alone; it's just that attractive. But there are plenty of practical touches to back up the striking looks and awesome lighting effects, including two headphone racks and a front-facing USB Type-C...

Slick, compact design ; Awesome lighting options ; Great gaming performance ; Lots of extra goodies

Limited upgradability ; No cheaper configs available (yet) ; Cumbersome power brick

The Acer Predator G1 packs 4K- and VR-ready gaming performance inside of a stunning and small package.

Acer Predator 21 X


The Acer Predator 21 X is a gaming laptop in name only since it weighs 18.74 lb. and has a 21" curved widescreen display. While it's neither terribly portable nor affordable, the mighty Predator 21 X was intended to show off Acer's high end design...
