The relationship between the laptop and games is a direct relationship We always find that laptops designed for games and heavy use of heavy weight and find the user difficult to move, which is completely contrary to what they are “laptops,” and the prices of these computers are somewhat high and if What the user thought about assembling a desktop computer would cost less money or would assemble a much stronger computer at the same cost. Well, after this introduction, the reader can conclude that today is a solution that will provide the user with a suitable laptop and competitor performance Heavy jacks and also light weight? Unfortunately dear reader this will not happen this time too. You have been deceived by the introduction, do not raise the ceiling of your expectations so much, here is our review of the laptop Helios 300 from ACER.
The first thing you can notice after the computer comes out of its packaging is that it is heavy. The weight of this computer is 3 kg without the charger that comes with it, which weighs an additional 1.5 kg. This means that once you think about buying this computer you will carry at least About 5 kilos in your hand or on your back while on the move, which means that this mobile device will be a burden on mobility, but if you are accustomed to this thing like me, it will not be a problem for you significantly, you are looking for strong performance and therefore must make some concessions.
The design is good overall, as usual, the Acer Predator Helios 300 series, which has maintained its popularity as one of the top 10 bestsellers in the last few weeks on the Amazon site, but there is nothing new or dazzling in the design. If you are a player you will see the black theme mixed with red with the Predator logo The aggressive shape of the rear, a large part of this computer is made of black plastic gloss is another part of the oxidized aluminum, which takes the fingerprints relatively clearly.
The screen in this computer comes in the size of 17.3 of the type of LCD IPS with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 and refresh rate of 144hz This is the most prominent features of the screen or the most prominent features of the computer as a whole yet the edges around the screen is far from the thinness where the circular edges around the screen display very noticeable Which makes it a large size of 390 x 266 mm, we would prefer to have the edges of the screen much thinner as we have seen in other computers, the type of IPS panels on the screen provide better viewing angles and reproduction of color better than the types of TN and VA cost less and screens IPS is more important to the laptop compared to the computer screen because it is because of many The movement is likely to see all kinds of angles, only we wished there to support technology G-Sync, as we saw in the screens for portable computers and other.
If you look at the ports on this computer, the right side of the Predator Helios 300 has two USB 2.0 ports along with a port for the headset and the charger port of the device. On the left side of the computer you will find a dedicated charging port, Gigabit Ethernet using Realtek Ethernet and 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C, One USB 3.0 Type A, and SD Card Reader.
The keyboard is good in this computer and it comes in full size with NumPad. The keychain here is unobtrusive and it responds well. It gave the ACER WASD keys a distinctive shape. The computer is primarily for the players. The keys are red. Unfortunately there is no RGB light here. But unfortunately the brightness can not be changed or controlled, but the brightness of the keys is acceptable so it will not be writing in the dark a problem, as for Trackpad it is suitable and suitable for use is not the best but since the computer is directed to games always use the tracking panel will not be of interest or useful, External or arm Rule.
