Acer which is a reputed Taiwanese brand brings its Gaming lineup named as Acer Predator Helios 300 to India. Under this lineup, there are 2 Laptops launched in India with more or less similar specs, features & looks. So if you are a gamer then this could impress you.
In terms of specs both the Acer Predator Helios 300 model comes with 15.6inch Full HD Display, 8GB DDR4 Ram(upgradable up to 32GB & comes with 2 slots), 1TB Hard Drive, 128GB SSD (upgradeable), Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti 4GB GDDR5 Graphics Card & HD Webcam.
In terms of I/O both have 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 3.1, 1 x USB C, Kensingten Lock, 2 in 1 Card Reader, HDMI Port (v2.0) & required jacks.
The only major difference between the two models is the processor. the lower-end model will come with Intel i5 7th generation 7300HQ Processor clocked at 2.5GHz whereas the top end model will come with Intel i7 7th Generation 7700HQ Processor clocked at 2.8GHz. What’s Interesting is that Acer allows users to overclock the hardware using Acer predator sense software which is obviously a bonus for gamers and power users.
Acer Predator Helios 300 lineup comes with Dolby Atmos and Acer TrueHarmony for your daily music sessions. Also, Acer mentioned at the launch that this laptop will come with AeroBlade 3D Fans to keep the laptop cool when you are putting it to use. Not to forget it also comes with the backlit keyboard but sadly not the RGB one.
With all the above-mentioned hardware these laptops will only weigh at about 2.8KGs which is great if you ask me.
These laptops will be exclusively available at Flipkart, for now, starting at ₹1,29,999 for i5 (7300HQ) model and ₹1,49,999 for i7(7700HQ) model. The laptop comes with 1 Year International Travellers Warranty.
