Building PCs is something that I like and something that I recommend others to do. But that’s not the case for everyone and thus, pre-built gaming PCs is a very popular market. Acer has been providing pre-built computers for a while but now, they take it to the next step with the Acer Predator Orion 9000.
The Orion 9000 is a full-fledged gaming PC that supports the most baddest and biggest hardware that you can find today. How about an Intel i9 with 18 cores and a GTX 1080 Ti with that? This is something that has been exclusive for most PC-builders but with the Orion 9000, pre-built machines will offer this as well.
The case is typical Predator-style with an aggressive look, steel, and plastic. On top of the case, you have a TURBO-button and four USB ports, where one of them is USB-C. Funny enough, there are handles on top of the case and wheels at the back. While not being to confirm, it definitely looks like a heavy PC and not something that you would take with you. Oh, well, I guess LAN parties are still a thing. Of course, there are windows on the case side, so you can show it off to your friends (what else is the point of a window?).
Something that is very interesting is the customization and the upgrade-friendly way this PC is headed. The whole lightning on the case is RGB and can be changed to whatever color you want. It’s also possible to upgrade the hardware over and over with multiple hard drive slots and free PCI-Express slots. I can see this as a great system for someone that is not ready to build yet but can swap a graphics card out when the time comes.
The Acer Predator Orion 9000 is a beast of a machine, no doubt about it. There is no pricing and availability out yet, but if the Orion 9000 sounds interesting, you should check out the product page for all the glorious details.
