Acer Aspire Predator first-impressions: serious gaming goes mainstream?

Acer Aspire Predator first-impressions: serious gaming goes mainstream?

When Acer launched their Aspire Predator gaming PC range on Wednesday, little did they realise that bit-tech were lurking in the wings waiting to clinically dissect their offerings (and literally dissect what turned out to be an unexpectedly fragile drive-cage door).  Acer are apparently aiming the Predator line at the high-street, rather than the more usual "online niche" systems which it believes intimidates and confuses new buyers.  While many have prematurely dismissed the Acer as a gimmick - not least because of the eye-ache paint-job and mechanised codpiece - first-impressions seem pretty good.
