Acer Predator Thronos: I Want to Sit in This Overkill Computer Battlestation

Acer announced some neat stuff today, including the availability of the Acer Swift 5—a 15-inch notebook that weights 2.18 pounds and Acer claims is the lightest ever built. But the absolute standout—the unit—of Acer’s announcements is the Predator Thronos. And if you’re thinking “Thronos” sounds like “throne” I am almost positive that was intentional because Acer will want you to feel like you’re sitting on a throne when you drop so much money on a chair that can’t be shown in public.

This Huge Screen Looks Like a TV, But It’s Actually a Specialised Gaming Monitor

This might look like a TV. It’s a big 65-inch display capable of HDR and putting out 1000 nits of brightness. It even uses a quantum dot film to achieve DCI-P3 colour gamut, which is nerd speak for really good color reproduction that’s usually only found super expensive TVs. But this display is one of three new Big Format Gaming Displays Nvidia announced at CES. This thing is meant to be a gaming monitor first, and yes, shockingly, that does make a difference.

It has a stupid name, isn’t practical or reasonable, and if you have brittle bone disease it would probably destroy your lap. But it’s also a laptop with a 21-inch curved display and goddammit that is as cool as it is stupid. It is also, we’ve just learned, going to be very very expensive. Read More >>
