Acer Predator Helios 300 (2018, 15-Inch)

 

With its part-metal build and GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is a compelling midrange gaming laptop in a premium suit.

On-point performance for the price. Solid construction. Touchpad and keyboard are superior to other gaming laptops in its class.

Battery life is brief. Color scheme follows the crowd.

Bottom Line: With its part-metal build and GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is a compelling midrange gaming laptop in a premium suit.

Acer Predator Helios 300 (17-inch) review: Big screen gaming without the big price

 

Acer's Helios 300 packs in features including on overclockable GPU and a patented superthin cooling fan.

The Nvidia 1060 graphics card is overclockable, and cooling is assisted by a patented superthin fan. For a 17-inch VR-ready gaming laptop, the price is very reasonable.

You can find the same GPU in 15-inch systems that cost less. The screen is only standard 1,920x1,080 resolution and doesn't really pop. The part-plastic body is a yawn.

You can find similar components for less, but Acer packs a lot of unique features -- and a big screen -- into the midpriced Predator Helios 300.

Acer Predator Helios 300: We review the bestselling gaming laptop on Amazon

 

Acer's Predator Helios 300 is currently the bestselling gaming laptop on Amazon. With an 8th-gen Core i7, GeForce GTX 1060, and 144Hz screen, it's easy to see why. We delve into those and other details.

Overall it’s hard to complain much about the Acer Predator Helios 300. Sure, the battery could be larger, but then it would be heavier and bigger too. With its friendly upgrade paths, top-notch CPU and GPU, and hard-to-beat price of $1,100, there’s a...

Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition review: Paint it white

 

The Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition clads this excellent gaming laptop in an attractive white-and-gold chassis, though you pay for the eye candy.

Absolutely gorgeous design ; Great gaming performance ; Fast 144Hz display ; Matching mouse, mousepad, and earbuds included ; Very easy to upgrade

Steep price premium vs. standard Helios 300 ; Awful white backlighting on white keys hampers usability ; Some details lack finesse, such as thick bezels ; Paltry 256GB storage capacity

It depends on how much value you put in aesthetics.

Acer Predator Helios 300 – Laptop Review

 

The Acer Predator Helios 300 looks like a high-end gaming laptop thanks to its aggressive design and 17.3in screen but, pleasingly, it's not priced like one.

The Acer is a well-made machine with good balance, especially considering the £1,300 price. The GTX 1050 Ti is a solid 1080p gaming chip, the Core i7 processor is fast, and the screen is solid.
