Acer Predator Helios 300 (2018) Review // Best Gaming Laptop for the Price?

Matt Moniz’s review of the 8th Gen Acer Predator Helios 300. Same design but faster internals with a few important updates. Last year I called it one of the best buys for a gaming laptop at its price point. Does it still hold the same title in 2018? Watch for the full review!

I literally just bought the 7th gen core i7 model yesterday do you think it’s worth returning it to get this one?

The Doopa says:

I have the Acer Nitro 5 (2017), baby version of this beast. I just don’t feel people give the touch pad justice. Will you be gaming with it? No, but the gestures are worth every penny put into it. 1,2,3, or 4 finger gestures which are all custizable with pinches and swipes and stuff. Easily switch between game, OBX, or anything you want in a swipity swipe.

Evan Rogers says:

And yet it still looks like a race car bed. Such a waste.

Relyks says:

I feel like 80 degrees is still a bit too hot.

Prabhjot Lidhar says:

That’s 3000 dollars

I don’t know your definition of budget but that sure ain’t mine

The 8th Gen Intel Acer Predator Helios 300 is here! Same design but some improvements. What do you guys think?

Hari E says:

Last year it was 7700 HQ, not 7700K.

Noor Khammas says:

Is it a TN or IPS panel?

Taruha Kurogane says:

Hi, do you have the i5 8300H variants one? Here in Asia it’s available but not much review about it on YouTube, so i would appreciate if you could review it. Thanks.

A. J. says:

Do the Lenovo 530 next

Bary's for life says:

Don’t forget the hp omen 15 please


Max fan on 80C, yikes. Better just disable turbo boost. Just judge the game if it’s more of a cpu user or gpu then adjust clock settings based on that info. Is it a pretty process? No, but that price tag and screen sure is a looker.

Stefanie Saw says:

I’m using a Predator Helios 300 with i7 7th gen. It’s super good, had no problems with longtime gaming as long as the fan is on max, and as a creative, I find it super good when working with Photoshop. But damn, I really wish it had better cooling systems. Mine just sits idle at 40-50 degree celsius.

Victor Mason says:

Undervolt it

Sushma Singh says:
