Acer Shows Off Flashy Predator Orion 9000 Gaming Desktop

From PC Mag: Acer brought plenty of hardware to IFA this year, from ultraportable laptops to premium workstation-level gaming desktops, all of which I got to check out here following the press conference.

Desktop announcements were headlined by the Predator Orion 9000, one of the flashiest products Acer showed today. It's a high-end desktop for enthusiast gamers and creators, with up to 18-core Intel Core i9 processors and the capability for four-way AMD graphics or dual Nvidia cards.

It's housed in a huge case, though the design is attractive and fairly sleek given its formidable size. It even has wheels on the rear, though I suspect the use cases for this will be quite small. The Orion 9000 can be customized, with a maximum 44TB of storage and up to 128GB of memory thanks to the CPU platform.

The other big desktop offering was something a bit more slim, the Aspire S24 (pictured above). This all-in-one desktop was impressive up close, sleek at just 0.23 inches thick, with a borderless display and trimmed with gold. The display is Full HD with In-Plane Switching, and the base features wireless charging for any Qi-enabled devices. It will be available in January 2018 starting at $999.
