Acer is set to unleash its high-end gaming rig to the U.S. in the form of the Acer Aspire Predator. Just one look at the machine and you know this bad-boy is screaming fast.

Acer is attempting its hand at the high-end notebook market currently occupied by Apple and Sony. Acer is entering the market with its upgraded and restyled Aspire line, dubbed the Gemstone Blue.
