It’s a beautiful keyboard with changeable lights and some extra programmable keys at left side of keyboard. Mouse pad on the other hand, is a bit tiny. But, if you’re using it to for other purpose instead of gaming, you’re doing it wrong. This tiny mouse pad wasn’t put there to work for you at all, gamers need a good gaming mouse anyways. The keyboard of Acer Predator 21X is a bit noisy and sometimes it feels bit off, apart from that this is a good choice, if you can afford it.

As the 4K era is upon us and every next thing is demanding this feature by users. Sadly, this laptop doesn’t support 4K feature even having two of the GTX 1080s. If this isn’t a big deal for you then sure, go ahead.
I think it’s best to share Linus Tech‘s review here, I personally like his videos and he pretty much summed up everything.
In the end it always comes to price, after you go through everything, when it comes to this, either you leave it or you get it. Acer Predator 21X cost only USD $9000 which is equal to 6 Apple Mac Pros. Thing is, this machine offers you with great potential and Curved LED with mechanical keyboard to take wherever you want. A little bit of extra weight is not a big deal as long as you want to do gaming and set it up place to place. You can also get a large suitcase for this laptop which is quite beautiful and seems quite suitable to it.
- Very Costly
- Very heavy, need big suitcase to carry it around
- Mechanical keyboard is noisy
- Doesn’t support 4k
- There are better options available now
