34-year-old Arsyan Ismail, who runs an IT startup, is now the proud owner of the only unit of the Acer Predator 21 X in Malaysia, which retails at RM39,999.

He told The Sun Daily that he bought the laptop because "life is short, enjoy what you can, buy while you still can."

Well said, Arsyan. Well said.

Mind you, it's not just any other gaming laptop

The Acer Predator 21 X is the holy grail of all gaming laptops.

It has a 21″ curved 120Hz screen pushing 2560×1080 resolution. Under the hood, it gets an overclockable Intel Core i7-7820HK processor, a pair of NVIDIA GTX 1080s in SLI, 64GB of RAM, and two 512GB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration.

It's also equipped with a mechanical keyboard that comes with a hot-swappable trackpad.

To sum that all up, it's a beast.

The laptop is so huge that it even has its own luggage bag!

FYI, the gaming laptop itself weighs 8kg! :O

Can't say we're not jealous. Enjoy your new laptop, Arsyan!
