This new gaming notebook is one that offers a decent level of performance without costing you an arm and a leg, while ensuring that the masses will be able to gain access to a powerful gaming notebook.

The Acer Predator Helios 300 will arrive in a classic but tasteful gaming chassis, where it boasts of an iron red backlit keyboard, while selected models will include a metal top cover and keyboard area that showcases additional strength and rigidity. Other specifications point to 16GB of RAM, a speedy SATA SSD and a 1TB HDD, which would certainly leave you spoilt for choice when it comes to storing data and games. There is also a USB 3.1 Type-C port, a USB 3.0 port (featuring power-off USB charging), a couple of USB 2.0 ports, and an HDMI 2.0 connection to keep up with the times. Expect the Acer Predator Helios 300 to retail for $1,299 onward for the 15.6-inch model, while the 17.3-inch model is going for a Benjamin more.
