Acer just announced their new Acer Predator Helios 300 laptop lineup. Which include two laptops, where depending on the screen size users can either choose a 15.6 inch or a 17.3 inch model. Where both models can be equipped with the latest 7th gen Intel Kaby Lake processor, coupled with either a GTX 1050 Ti or GTX 1060 graphics card.
The upcoming Acer Predator Helios 300 series, will be offered in matt black color, with red accents. A typical Acer gaming laptop design. Aside from that the laptop will be running Windows 10 out of the box. In terms of specs the laptop will either be equipped with a 7th gen Intel Core i7 7700HQ processor, or a Core i5 7300HQ processor.

For storage the laptop comes with a SSD and a HDD drive, which can also be configured by its users.
Being a gaming laptop the Acer Predator Helios 300 does not skip on ports. Where the laptop comes with a single USB type-C and USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 port and a single HDMI 2.0 port. While both the 15.3 inch and 17.3 inch models comes equipped with a FHD display. Which isn’t a wonder to look at but does offer vibrant and vivid images. Ideal for gaming and watching movies.
The upcoming Acer Predator Helios 300 lineup will be available in the market starting July, 2017. Where the 15.6 inch model will be going for around $1299. While the 17.3 inch model will cost you $1399.
Looking at the price, both the gaming laptop do come in the affordable range of gaming laptops. So don’t expect a high quality build from either of the laptops. But considering the hardware both of them pack. Getting a better gaming experience shouldn’t be a problem. Especially if you go with the GTX 1060 graphics card.
