You may remember the tangerine terror that was the Acer Predator. Well, that was the 2008 model. The 2010 model has now been revealed, and while it drops the “tangerine”, it certainly retains the “terror”.
Dubbed the G7750-A64, I’m going to call it “Cylon #13” (or “Daniel The Toaster”) instead. It’s been upgraded with a Core i7-960 3.20GHz CPU and a new GeForce GTX 260 graphics card to go with its 8GB of RAM, and also boasts a more reserved, darker colour scheme.
I’d have said the new tones were “tasteful”, but I don’t think tasteful is where Acer is going with these things.
The G7750-A64 was first unveiled last month in Asia, and is priced there at PhP153,900 and ¥289, 800. Which is around, oh, USD$3300.
Paradise don’t come cheap.
