    Wow, expensive and heavy, great combo's :)

    But, for something that large to be solid and protective, that's about right.

    Maybe a sling bag maker can make a light weight but strong sling case to spec for you? A simple over the shoulder sling carried under the arm would be light and unobtrusive, but you'd need to get used to the heavy carry on one side.

    When it gets that big, it's almost like it should be it's own protective case, with a handle and a clip on/off sling band. :)

    I went ahead and ordered a SKB-SC2414 soft case. The laptop will fit. It needs to be seen if it will hold securely or not. Will update when it arrives.

    Over $20,000 of Gaming Laptops COMPARED


    Wow, the Acer Predator 21x BGA CPU is way ahead of the Sagar NP9873 LGA CPU in Cinebench single and multi-threaded tests :)

    The geniuses at Sager don't delid their desktop CPUs. That desktop CPU was destined to throttle.

    Can't be the whole truth. Stock 6700K in P870DM2 reviewed by Anandtech.com with more normal Cinebench R15 scores. My own 6700K wasn't delidded when I bougt my P870, and the CB scores was correct as well for stock clocks.

    "Over $20,000 of Gaming Laptops COMPARED".

    Four laptops and the Predator was HALF of the total cost! LOL. I think I may be retarded, but it is a sweet looking machine!

    With power bricks in zipper pocket (1280x720).jpg Here with the zipper closed and power bricks inside the pocket. Mouse and power cords are inside with the laptop. There is about 1 inch free space on long side and about 1 1/2 inch free on the short side. Much lighter and easier to carry around!

    Wow, that all looks custom made for the 21x!

    It's nice to have options. I wonder if Acer will put out a soft case or backpack / satchel in the future?
