Last week at the [email protected] global press conference in New York we debuted our new Predator Helios 300 gaming notebook line. Available with 15.6-inch or 17.3-inch displays, its matte black chassis incorporates tasteful red accents, providing a slightly edgy, fun design. Shipping with Windows 10, it offers powerful features and technologies at mid-range price points, making gaming notebooks more accessible than ever.


At the heart of the Predator Helios 300 is an overclockable1 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 or 1050Ti GPU combined with a 7th Gen Intel Core i7 (7700HQ) or i5 processor (7300HQ) for outstanding performance. All of this processing power is supported with up to 16GB of DDR4 memory (upgradable to 32GB), a speedy SATA SSD1 and a 1TB HDD1. An access compartment doors on the bottom of the notebooks makes it easy to upgrade memory and storage components.

 



The Predator Helios 300 also includes a USB 3.1 Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port (featuring power-off USB charging), two USB 2.0 ports, and an HDMI 2.0 connection. It connects wirelessly through fast 2x2 802.11ac technology, and also includes a Gigabit Ethernet port for those preferring a hard-wired connection.

Designed as an entertainment hub, Predator Helios 300 notebook line is ideally suited for both gaming and movie watching. Bright 15.6-inch or 17.3-inch FHD IPS displays provide vibrant, vivid imagery, while Dolby Audio™ Premium and Acer TrueHarmony™ deliver immersive audio with crisp, rich acoustics. Skype for Business Certification ensures conversations are clear and lag-free while providing a great Cortana with Voice experience.

 


For smooth game play, a dual fan system featuring an AeroBlade™ 3D Fan2 with ultra-thin metal blades keeps the notebook running at optimal temperatures. Preloaded PredatorSense software provides real time system information and overclocking, so gamers can monitor and control the system’s vitals from one central interface.
