This is the most powerful creative laptop on the market. The Acer ConceptD 9 has an RTX 2080 with it's i9-8890HK but the rotating screen is the most interesting feature and brings a new kind of workflow to the laptop space.

Acer's Concept D laptops go 'Pro' with Quadro RTX
Source: CNet English
Acer launched its Concept D line of creator-focused systems in April, which included the unique Concept D 9, based on the Predator Triton 900 gaming system, as well as more traditional clamshell Concept D 7 and 5, similarly based on a couple of the company's gaming laptops. At IFA 2019, Acer expanded the line to include a $1,000 entry-level model, the Concept D 3, as well as "Pro" variants of each which incorporate Nvidia's Quadro RTX workstation GPUs instead of the consumer GeForce versions, and a 17-inch version of the D5 Pro. Acer also decided to offer dark models rather than just the rather unattractive flat white.

Acer ConceptD 9 (CN917-71) review – the ultimate tool for content creators
Source: Laptop Media English
Man… this laptop is something special. It is formidable how a device that we have basically tested already… sort of (in the form of Triton 900), is baffling us once again. You know, if you are a digital designer, artist or some sort of a creator, you would need a set of tools on your desk. First, there is the computer, that has to be powerful enough, so your work isn’t slowed down or it doesn’t stutter under heavy load. Second and also of huge importance – you need a color-accurate display – it is inappropriate to use a dim and off charts panel for color-sensitive work. Then, there are the input devices. Sure, a lot of people can do stuff with their mice and keyboards, however, if you want to be really precise, you would have a tablet or even a touchscreen display laying in front of you.

Versatile and powerful in equal measure, it’s a hybrid laptop that will get the job done without so much as a hint of perspiration, just don’t expect it to look cool in the process.

The Acer ConceptD 9 is a fascinating proposition for professional creatives, with this premium laptop looking to be a portable alternative to the Microsoft Surface Studio. Whether it's worth the steep price is difficult to say at this early stage.

The Acer ConceptD 9 is an impressive looking device that holds a lot of promise for a surprisingly large cross section of content creators and gamers, with the power to serve both needs rather effortlessly. We just need to see the inputs improve a little before mass production.
