Acer's Predator Orion 9000 PC goes all out, new accessories

It looks less predatory than its G-series siblings, and that's good.

Acer's flagship Predator gaming desktop gets a complete redesign full of mesh and vents and glowing innards, along with the Core i9 Extreme processors, Radeon RX Vega and GeForce 1080 Ti, up to 128GB memory and more. But really I just want to put it on a shelf and stare at it from this angle all day.

Side panels

There's the obligatory clear side panel -- this one is designed to reduce EMI levels -- but both sides have easy access.

Purty

The fans have configurable lighting, and this is a really nice design. Sadly, the color-enabled ones cost extra.

The new gaming mouse has two levels of resistance when clicking, which can be assigned by game type.

Predator Galea 500

A new premium headset features "a driver diaphragm made from bio-cellulose with rubber surround." Interestingly, Acer's description of the benefits seems to be all about music. It does incorporate Acer's technology for delivering more accurate directionality.
