Acer at its 2019's nexta2acer event held in New York disclosed a slew of laptops with 'Predator Helios 700' gaming laptop being the most interesting one. Introducing a new chapter of creativity, the laptop is equipped with 'Hyperdrift sliding keyboard' that slides out (towards the user) giving extra air to the heat generating innards thus ensuring maximum cooling and overclocking! Also, once the keyboard is slid outwards, it offers a comfortable position for resting our wrists and this really means a lot for the gamers!
For heat management, Helios 700 is outfitted with AeroBlade fans, five copper heat pipes and a vapour chamber which make use of Acer’s CoolBoost technology.
On the other hand, the MagForce WSAD keys with linear switches, per-key RGB lighting, anti-ghosting offer precise in-game movements. Also, with a good amount of travel and tactile feedback, you also get comfortable typing experience for any stretched sessions. There is also a 'Turbo hotkey', with just a tap on it, instantly spins the fans and overclocks the device.
Acer also confirms that Helios 700 is designed for gamers who look for good performance than convenience and other factors. And for this, the notebook's hardware alone is just sufficient. Intel's upcoming Intel Core i9 CPUs which is coupled with 64GB DDR4 RAM, as well as either NVIDIA's RTX 2070 or 2080 GPUs bring up all the modern titles with reduced latency!
The 17.3-inch full HD IPS display with 1080p resolution, 144Hz refresh rate and almost 3ms low response time are perfect for high frame rates. The display also supports Nvidia G-Sync technology which offers smooth and tear-free gameplay at refresh rates up to 240Hz.
In terms of connectivity, Helios 700 has Killer DoubleShot Pro with Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 wireless chip, E3000 ethernet port and a 5.1 speaker system coupled with subwoofer emanate rich audio, etc.
Price/Availability: Acer Predator Helios 700 starts at 2700 USD (Rs. 1,90,000 approximately) / will arrive in April 2019 in EMEA countries in April 2019 followed by China. No details regarding launch in India.
