Acer Predator Helios 700 : An Introduction

The 2019 Acer Predator Helios 700 is designed to offer the ultimate gaming experience, with a large 17.3-inch IPS display, and the latest Intel Core i9-9980HK processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics.

Its display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, with a 144 Hz refresh rate and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC.

It comes with 32 GB DDR4 memory (upgradable to 64 GB), and two 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration. But you can also add a separate HDD for additional storage.

The Predator Helios 700 boasts a unique HyperDrift keyboard that increases airflow by up to 18.9% through the top of the laptop.

The cooling system features two 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fans that maximise airflow while minimising noise. Part of it can be seen through the Gorilla Glass panel in the centre.

Pulling out the HyperDrift keyboard also extends a wrist rest, and makes it easier for you to use the keyboard, which incidentally has anti-ghosting capability, and per-key RGB lighting.

The HyperDrift keyboard also improves ergonomics, with a desktop-like feel. In addition, it comes with per-key RGB lighting, anti-ghosting and MagForce WASD keys.

The MagForce keys use analog-like linear switches that trigger actuation on initial press, and increase up to 100% to give players more precise movements in game.

Its large Precision Touchpad is outlined with blue lighting, and features two discrete mouse buttons. Its 17.3-inch IPS display is not only large, it supports a 144 Hz refresh rate and NVIDIA G-SYNC.
