Acer’s Orion 9000 is so massive, it has built-in wheels

Acer’s latest PC is its most powerful ever, coming equipped with components that are ready to smash any task you throw at it. Oh, and it comes on wheels.

The Predator Orion 9000 is the company’s first gaming-oriented workstation PC, packing the new Intel X299 chipset that give it access to the highest-end desktop processors currently available, all the way up to the latest Intel Core i9, 18-core monster processors. Whatever you choose, you’ll get Predator-branded liquid cooling to keep temps under control.

There’s a side window that looks a bit like a microwave door thanks to its grille design that’s designed to stop electromagnetic interference (is that a genuine problem?) and a whole stack of RGB lighting all over the machine for extra customisability.

And yes, it comes with two handles and a pair of wheels so you can drag it around your home/office/LAN party with ease without causing yourself a game-stopping injury.


The new PC comes in about as many configurations as you can imagine, with up to four GPUs at a time coming in both two Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards or four AMD Radeon RX Vega cards. You’ll also get up to 128GB of DDR4 memory thanks to the 8 RAM slots included on the X299 platform.

At the time of writing Acer didn’t have an official release date, but did state that it’d have a starting price of a mere $2000 (around £2000).
