    "I needed a great laptop with a dedicated graphic card since I love to play video games on my computer. I found the Acer Predator 21 X. This is such a great computer. It feeds my needs wonderfully. It's super fast and works so well with my Steam games. I love all the hard disk space and the RAM. I highly recommend this computer to everyone who wants a powerful machine."


Did you know why 15-inch MacBook Pros are more expensive than any other laptops? Well, one of the reasons is that they are equipped with a dedicated graphics card. Looking back on the early years of computer, every component needed a separate card. This means a card was needed for the audio, video, graphics, so on. Thanks to technological advancement, miniaturization happened. It eradicated the need for separate cards, integrating everything into the motherboard. Hence, the birth of the integrated graphics card.

Yet, why are the latest models of laptops still have dedicated graphics? This is common among gaming laptops because it arguably boosts the performance of the whole system. It works as a mini-system inside a system--it has an independent processor (the GPU), cooling system, and more. The discrete GPU installed in MacBook Pros provides stellar performance yet it consumes more energy. Well, if Apple is smart enough to have an 'automatic graphics switching' that lets the MacBook switch from using discrete GPU to using integrated one. While the dedicated cards are more efficient, the integrated ones maximize all its available resources to function well and do not take a toll on the laptop's battery life. So integrated vs dedicated, it's your call.

    "This is a solid laptop, with solid specs, and solid performance. I also think it's about $2k too much, for just a SLIGHT bump from the nVidia 1060 to 1080. Seriously, there are similarly spec'd laptops that are far cheaper with only a slight dip in performance, don't waste the money on this."

    "Probably a fine laptop if it actually works, but their support is terrible. Mine started experiencing random crashes and shutdowns a month after I bought it. I tried all sorts of local fixes, and even reformatted it to clear out any viruses, but nothing worked. I called up their support line, and they recommended about ten different things I'd already tried, and then made me go through every single step (even though I'd already tried them!) until they'd let me proceed and talk to someone who knew what they were doing. Eventually they agreed to try and repair it for me - and then they told me I'd need to pay $100 in shipping to get it sent to them, and back. So I paid. Already out 500 bucks on the laptop, right? It takes them A MONTH to get back to me. And when they do, guess what: it's a brand-new laptop (guess they couldn't fix the old one) with half the pixels in the screen already dead. Currently in my fourth hour talking to customer support trying to get a full refund. I don't want a replacement, and I never want to shop from this brand again. AVOID. "

    "I've been gaming on the Predator Helios for a while now, after a friend recommended it. I was looking for a laptop with dedicated graphics, so I could really immerse myself in my games and not deal with dropped frames, etc. This definitely fit the ticket, for me...but maybe not for you. For the price, being less than a grand, this is one of if not the best laptop you can get with dedicated graphics. If you have the cash to spend, a better machine can be had obviously."

    "The hardware specs are certainly impressive for the price, but there are no reviews. I want to say this is a good laptop, but I cannot with there being no reviews and not having purchased it. While you would be taking a gamble on it, I'm certain that the manufacturer will stand behind it with some kind of warranty."
