It was bound to happen at some point. Someone in Malaysia decided that he really would like to spend RM40,000 on a brand new laptop. That man was Arsyan Ismail, a startup entrepreneur who appears to have made it.
The Acer Predator 21X is easily the most expensive, and impressive, laptop available in the Malaysian market. At RM39,999, it packs the best hardware available to modern technology; including the only curved display on a laptop.
That said, even Acer was being conservative about the number of units it would be able to sell. Only 300 units of the Predator 21X are available in the world, and only one of those made it into Malaysia.
As we said before, the Predator 21X is a statement of intent from Acer. Seeing that it goes against the trend of making things smaller and lighter. That said, Arsyan has also made a very, very clear statement with his purchase.
