How much would you spend to fulfill your desire for the ultimate gaming experience? Remember that insane Acer Predator 21 X which costs more than a car? Acer Malaysia has just sold one unit today.

The proud owner of this gaming beast is Arsyan Ismail and he had just collected his gaming machine today. In case you’re wondering, the Acer Predator 21 X is retailing at a whopping RM39,999.

First announced during IFA 2016, it’s a showcase of what Acer can do when they go completely nuts. It has a 21″ curved 120Hz screen pushing 2560×1080 resolution. Under the hood, it gets an overclockable Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, a pair of NVIDIA GTX 1080s in SLI, 64GB of RAM and two 512GB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration.

It even gets a full sized Cherry MX Brown mechanical keyboard that comes with a hot-swappable trackpad. For awesome sound, it has 6-speakers (4 speakers + 2 woofers) for a more desktop-like gaming experience. The gaming laptop itself weighs 8kg and it even comes with a tough looking Pelican case for ease of transport. You can learn more in our Predator 21 X unboxing post.

There are only 300 units worldwide and he was lucky enough to get a cool limited edition number – 1 / 300.

orang biasa

he really need trolley to carry this super monster laptop.
Orang kaya taste will be difference from orang biasa. The more unique item, the more they like it most.


If the news reported some dude in western world bought this and gets the very first batch, no one gonna bats an eye.
Eventually it was bought by Malaysian, and the rest Malaysians loses their minds.


"curved 120MHz screen"

Should be 120Hz…


    Yes, you’re correct. Thanks!


i think you can mod the shit out your desktop with 40k to spend..waste of money


    No matter how much money you spend on a Wira, it will never come close to a Lamborghini.

Get a life.. most of us want to buy macbook also need to use easy payment.. sigh

This guy was involved in the Bitkingdom Scam and was an active member. As a Lord in bitkingdom he and his bloody King scam a lot of BTC. Bitkingdom was a scam created in Malaysia and actived in vietnam… interestingly enough he is also married to a Vietnamese as well…!!!

Be Wise

Stop pretend to be a resonable person!,

He’s rich, and its his own money! People has diff kind of taste. Some prefer to spend their money on vacations, some prefer unique gadgets & some jz like him, a hardcore laptop gamer.. Much better than those who spent money on beer & hooker everyday… Lol.
