Well, this is insane...

It's 21 inches, so it's not exactly portable.

The size of the keyboard there is a pretty good indicator of how batshit-insane the size of this is.

Even more gimmicky than just being huge, though, the screen is also curved. Now there's no known benefit to curved screens, as far as I know: they are a bit of a gimmick. Look nice, but on a bulky gaming laptop? Not so sure.

While I don't have an exact spec list, this laptop will have the latest gen Core i7, a GTX 1080, and some other bells and whistles including eye tracking technology and 4.1 channels of sound built into the chassis.

I guess they have a lot of spare room in there!

My first impression/thought: that looks like a 3 in 1 copier. 

Ofcourse laptops are not ideal for gaming but if you need to somewhat mobile and want a cool curved screen (I see no benefits either), this might be something for those with cash to burn.

I think the "curve" might give a bit more of a living feeling to the image. Hardly anything you're going to notice, though.

While I won't buy it myself, it's beautiful as hell. Very sleek design. Very futuristic.

"Did you see those salesmen from Acer? They've got curved laptops. BIG, curved laptops." Seriously though, I've had my run with a 17" and given my travel experience, I'd rather go for smaller and easier to manage designs as long as it doesn't compromise the hardware. This is anything but that.
