With curved TVs in stores, it was only a matter of time before a curved laptop turned up. Revealed Wednesday in Berlin, Acer's Predator 21x is the first with a curved screen to go along with its two subwoofers, four speakers, five cooling fans, and a keypad that transforms into a touch pad, per CNET, which labels it "a magic box of stupid." The monster 21-inch gaming laptop, weighing 17.6 pounds, also has Tobii eye-tracking, meaning you can "move through a game's environment or aim a weapon with a glance," writes Melissa Riofrio at PC World. It's expected to go on sale in early 2017 for more than $5,000. (More Acer stories.)
