It even uses a quantum dot film to achieve DCI-P3 color 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…
It’s not easy to find a really good laptop for under $1,000. There’s always some kind of compromise—usually related to speed, usability, or size.

There may exist inside of you a desire that burns white hot for the Acer Predator 21 X, but you will never buy this laptop.
