Sorry for not being able to post more back when, right after I posted the box shot was told to not share any more at the time. If you have any questions or anything please let me know. Also it seems the integration with the TheBrain is pretty deep, there is a dedicated button on the keyboard and the Brain that is included with the laptop continues the ARG that was behind it. 

Oh also

Seriously miss the s-j14 time thinkpad vibe. Not these light pollution.

It's neat and all, definitely looks cool and the design feels initially abrasive and off-balance but cooler the more you look at it (like some of the best acronym designs imo), but: This really just seems like an exercise in branding. Just a few neat flourishes on a stock laptop that may or may not be good to begin with. Would love to be proven wrong. The air-packaging is totally sick though.

I had thought that the included software was some custom acronym thing but no, it's an already existing prouct made by Erlsns brother:

Sort of a mind-mapping tool / outliner sort of thing, a bit more visually oriented than these things usually are (logofont looks familiar, wonder if erlsn had a hand) I actually really love tools like this (I had been using workflowy) and I'll definitely give this a look.

The air packaging is such a weird thing to market. Unless they did something special with it those bubble sleeves are a pretty standard packaging. Like my asus laptop 10 years ago came in one.

is it considered narcissism if you put your face on your product (marketing is understandable because you're selling credentials)? Like 30 years from now you will have digital ghost Errolson staring you down

Coming back to this thread to say, this thing with Errolson wanting to put his face on everything is what makes my wife cringe the most.

Been trying to find a way to share access to the full Brain that is included with the RMT but does seem to be hardware locked. Good news is I can share attachments. This is the most interesting thing so far but was told that it will be updated over time. Theres also a collection of screensavers, sounds, and fonts that can be installed.

Pretty sure I replied to you on Facebook suggesting to stay TTS. If that's your Height/Weight, I'd definitely suggest staying TTS. I float between 180-190 and while I could technically fit into a Medium, I don't think the look would be what I'd want. Large allows me to wear it with a single layer shirt and have it fit a bit (but not ridiculously) looser, but if I wear multiple layers or a sweater beneath, I'd definitely want to stay in the Large. 

I go between 145-185 and that's about where I think the Medium fits. I can fit a Small when Im lean. but even then, my J53 in Small is tight on my neck and i have a 15 1/2 neck. at my biggest my J16 in Medium was filled out. I think at 5 8"-5 10" folks who weigh over 185, you will be more comfortable in a Large.

Bold of you to assume these won't be in the recycling center 2 years from now, when the the tech inside it is no longer the top of the line, given we're on the brink of a new generation for everything.

AMD announcing new high end CPUs soon, nvidia series 30 cards coming to laptops most likely within the next 8 months.

Its why I can't be bothered with the latest specs on computer wether I build it or buy it. Shit gets outdated faster than cellphones

Could you imagine if Acronym collaborated with a mechanical keyboard manufacturer and made one with the same Rudnick design priced at 200-300 USD (with a lot more stock)? I would buy two, one for display and one for use.

I’m considering a pair of P36-E, but never owned any of the Encapsulated Nylon pieces. How do they compare with DS? I love the stretch of DS (bike racer legs) but hope it’s not wooshy like 90s warm up pants.

Encapsulated nylon is definitely quite loud and swishy. There is a tiny bit of give with the 1% elastane but certainly nothing like DS

Damn, now I'm salty this wasn't the case!

DIY kit, custom silk screened PCB and all would have been so sick.

would've been onboard for something like that. anyone know if custom mechanical keyboards can be ordered? maybe a small batch of superfuture flavoured ones?

How many are we looking at? Aside from the strange markings on the corner of the keys, this isn't too difficult to do. The more I stare at that keyboard config the more I dig the flavor. Colors are what I'd imagine a pack of Evangelion x Skittles would be.

Just placed an order for P36-E. Fingers crossed they fit me well.

Side note, I also ride XC and I'm looking forward to seeing the one XCWC race this year haha

It’s not exactly ‘loud and swishy’ but there is some noise and feel to them. The E is very lightweight but has nice structure to it. Mild water resistance and good wind resistance. Wouldn’t really put them in the same category as DS, very different hand-feel and drape. It’s a pretty great fabric in the right cut tho IMO.

@scamster @WillKhitie It's possible! It would be a lengthy process though, render designs, then a group-buy to confirm numbers, as production companies require a minimum order quantity, then QCing prototypes and finally, managing dispatch. If we do want to go ahead and try to do this, I'd be happy to try and help but I've never organized a group-buy before.

received CP2 and J89.

CP2 is actually a bit larger than the old stotz version. maybe it's because of the thicker and more substantial material, not sure about that. it has nice little upgrades across the board - now comes with escape zip, aux zip, and sling loops on the outside. highlight for me was the feel/texture of the new material - it made me want that J48 even more (but i'm definitely not spending 1.5k on a hoodie). CP2 overall definitely a keeper.

J89 turned out to be smaller / more profile cut than other similar pieces - I usually wear size S for these knit items, but the J89 in S unfortunately turned out to be too tight for layering. Regret not sizing up to M. Overall a nice piece, even though I'm still not a fan of the flimsy and non-elastic shirt sling, and it would've been great if they had done something to keep the lapels folded in place.

Honestly, I kinda hate nylon. Certainly not at ACRNM price points.

I’m extremely jealous you and others got a CP2. Hoping there’s a L or XL that pops up for me.

ill second that on the CP2, I will say that after getting the LA6B-AD, i suspected the J89 fit to be snug. @eyesolation many have commented about the J48 price. Just wondering if its any different of a mark up than any other ACR piece from 2015 till 2020? And if it was worth it to pay $800 in 2015? @BruceLeroy did you get the P36E and do you love them?

I ordered them this morning. I got a size L when I normally do XL in P10-DS and P30A-DS and I have room. So I expect this to fill the gap in between. I’ll post the worst fit pic imaginable soon.

as someone who owns P10 variants across CH, DS, S and now E, the p10A-E has to be my favourite

edit: also honourable mention, my P34-E have become my next go-to pant after the P10A-E. i live in the tropics, the breathability trumps DS, super lightweight yet water resistant after (quite a few) washes, colourfast and looks as new as the day i received them.

as for the brother above who says he hates nylon... it's acronym! it's not just "nylon"...

I bought the P36-E and J78-PX in the recent releases and here's my short, quick impression.

Here's why I think P36 is a nice pair of pants if not better than P37, they are different animal after all, difficut to compare totally different pants.
- Lots of new design elements in this pants, always exciting to see new FUNCTIONAL  elements.
- The P36 fits like a bit similar to P31 when it zipped on, and very similar to P33 when zipped off, pretty versatile in terms of styling, definitely helps to accommodate more shoes choices.
- The spiral pleats at the quad section are actually functional as a vent, which is not simply the "form over function" like pleasts used to be, and boy, I need dat vent.
- The new belt-fasting design solves two issues. 1) quick release, 2) designated bulge waist area that naturally conforms to the back spiral pleats. This has been a pain point for all my huge ass waist DS pants.
- The ankle zip is tilted and position in a way that connects to the flow of lower knee articulation in order to form a sharp structured drape. 
- The encapsulated nylon is less prone to snagging and has the same if not better abrainsion resistance as the Schoeller doublweave , more breathable, thinner, and it's the first time being used on a drapey pants like this.

 

J78-PX fits overall similar to J78-WS if not identical, I wear small in ACRONYM all around and I'd say it's a straight fit that can be layered not only under but also over something.

The Raf green element is a nice touch and adds a bit more depth to a white jacket.

To my eyes it looks more like pearl white/silver in daylight due to the semi-translucent property. 

Very happy with the purchase since I always wanted a white PX jacket and J74-PX hood just doesn't work that well when it's layered under.
