Are you looking for a powerful notebook to enhance your gaming experience? Then Acer has something for you. Acer has updated its well-known Predator Helios 300 series for the 2022 generation. The new Acer Predator Helios 300 2022 model offers exceptional performance.
Acer has improved the design, screen options, inputs, and ports, and added a battery and improved heat module, along with much more powerful specifications than previous versions. The result is better performance in demanding tasks and games, as well as longer battery life. At the same time, the Acer Predator Helios 300 is noisier and warmer, has poorer audio quality, and is not as affordable as it once was.
The Acer Predator Helios 300 looks similar to some other Predator notebooks. It features a black metal chassis with two reflective stripes and a blue-backed Predator emblem on the back. Considering the size of its screen, the computer is surprisingly compact at 14.3 x 10.0 x 0.9 inches. However, it is a bit heavier than the competition at 2.3 kg.
There are also enough ports to get the job done. A headphone jack, two USB-A ports and an Ethernet port are on the left, while a USB-C port, a USB-A port, an HDMI port and a mini-DisplayPort are on the right. The power connector is located on the back of the device so that it does not come into contact with other components.
The proximity of the USB-C and -A ports on the right side makes it difficult to use a mouse while connecting a device that requires a USB-C adapter, and you have to use a mouse since the touchpad is not fantastic. The fact that this is a large, heavy gaming laptop to take to a coffee shop cannot be overlooked. The large, backlit Predator logo on the laptop lid and the rainbow backlighting on the keyboard are customizable.
The huge ventilation grilles that provide cooling for the internal components, as well as the sheer size and mass of this laptop, cannot be changed. It’s worth noting that this notebook does get quite loud and hot under heavy load, but no more so than other gaming laptops with similar specifications.
