    I legit think that most companies HATE the existence of this gaming laptop. This puts a LOT of pressure on companies to make something competitive.

      @Kareem Foreva eGPU, the meaning of 'e' is eksternal, so eGPU is eksternal GPU, and it require thunderbolt 3 port

        Love the video, I want to get a gaming laptop and make the leap from console gaming to pc gaming. What system would you recommend for a first time pc gaming laptop? This or the asus scar ll? Or is there a better one to start with at that price point?

              BUYER BEWARE
              some older versions of this are being sold too. make sure you get the one with the 1660ti, not the 1060.

              https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-i7-7700HQ-1060-6GB-G3-571-77QK/dp/B06Y4GZS9C for example, this is one of the first links that appear when you google "helios 300", and it is an old version of it, and is an awful deal.

                Purchased this laptop for the amazon prime day sale for $999, and I have to say best decision ive ever made. Yes the speakers aren't great, yes the fans get a little loud but this machine is well cooled and the thermals are amazing. only real complaint that dave didn't mention that ive seen on other reviews and on my machine is that this ips panel has some decent backlight bleed, its not super noticeable but on dark screens it is. Honestly it doesn't bother me because I use an external monitor. It has incredible performance and feels like a premium gaming laptop, if youre looking for a great gaming laptop for under $1500, this is about as good as it gets. recommend 9/10

                I have the 2018 helios 300 and thermals in the beginning were amazing but aftert a year dust built up so i had to blow it out with a bit of compressed gas and it helped.
                still not amazing but helped

                        Is there a huge difference between the i5 model compared to the i7 model? Both appear to have the same GtX 1660 Ti

                          Lol That’s cool was planning on using it to play fortnite mostly but unsure if I should spend the extra on the i7 model rather than go for the i5 model. Considering they both have the same gpu I presume the FPS will be relatively the same

                        Id like to add in that I've had the Acer Predator 17 since 2.5 years (typing from it), and it runs flawlessly till now. I previously owned an Acer Inspire 15, until I wanted to play heavier games. For anyone doubting the brand, Acers products are absolutely solid and I have faced no hardware issues. Picked up the Predator on Daves recommendation.

                                    I'm new to gaming in a laptop, what does he mean when he said run tests to see if my computer is a faulty, what are benchmark?

                                      A benchmark is the fps of the software so he is saying to check that the fps is consistent and good of everything before the return time runs out (also benchmark isnt a term used only in laptops)

                                        I just got the 2018 model and I would recommend paying 200 more and get the 2019 is has mutch better thermals and the 1660ti is quite a bit faster than the 1060.

                                            too bad it looks like a 14 year old's laptop. The company loses sales b/c of the aesthetic. I won't buy it, nor will plenty of other people. Yet, any gamer will by a minimalist design, and minimalist lovers will also buy a minimalist design. Makes no sense to create this like 2010-esque looking laptops when minimal design is what everyone wants, you alienate a broader spectrum of potential customers just with this poor design choice.

                                            Yes, it's that big of a deal when you're in a meeting and you bust out your laptop and it says "P R E D A T O R" on the fucking lid. Wtf? lmao.

                                                              I'm getting this laptop for gaming and I'm new to using Windows laptops. What program should I use to run benchmarks so I know my computer isn't "the lemon"

                                                                Need help:

                                                                I'm thinking of getting a new laptop that I'm probably going to use for the next 5-6 years.
                                                                I play casual games and probably only one or two triple A games (if at all) at any time. (Usually just rpg, Divinity 2 or DA).
                                                                I'll be using it primarily for web development (I'm learning) and maybe Netflix.
                                                                If possible 13-15.6 inch. Nothing bulky.

                                                                Acer Helios 300 and Lenovo L340 gaming is my top choices. Am also considering Razer Stealth or Asus UX392.

                                                                Your feedbacks would be greatly appreciated.

                                                                  Take a look at the new asus rog series of gaming laptops. They're thin, light and pretty affordable. They seem to fit in your criteria.

                                                                      • Sophearith Saing

                                                                          I give up now, I’ve been researching for weeks now. I’m heading off to college and have been searching for a laptop that could handle all my college needs with occasional gaming with no lag or problems. The thing is that I want something small and light, but laptops that are small and light aren’t really good for gaming. My budget is $1200 and I ran into this video and it hurts my soul cuz it seems like the gamer in me dream laptop, but sadly I don’t think it fits the college side of things and for that reason I’m not getting it which sucks. I think I’m just going to stop looking for a laptop with gaming in mind and just going to stick with what will benefit me in college. Laptop shopping is so damn stressing.

                                                                        • KOERANZ
