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

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:

Sushma Singh says:
