Game and stay productive with the Predator Helios 300 Notebook from Acer, which runs on an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and delivers 1080p visuals on a 17.3" display and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. For handling multiple applications at the same time, the Predator Helios 300 is outfitted with 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and the Intel processor provides four cores, which operate between 2.8 and 3.8 GHz frequencies. To support this level of performance, a 256GB SSD enables quick boot times and launching of apps. There's also a 1TB hard drive for accommodating a large library of videos, photos, and other multimedia content.

On the outside, the Predator Helios 300 comes outfitted with USB 3.0 Type-C, USB 3.0 Type-A, USB 2.0 Type-A, and HDMI ports to expand the notebook's capabilities with external storage, monitor, gamepad, printer, and other useful peripherals. For wireless access, the notebook comes armed with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Once connected online, you can conduct face-to-face conversations using the notebook's integrated 720p webcam, microphone, and pair of speakers. Other notable connections include the usual audio combo, Gigabit Ethernet, and power connectors.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    Acer Predator Helios 300 reviews

    17.3" Predator Helios 300 Notebook is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Customer Support from Acer I highly recommend you go with a different gaming laptop. Ever since I have purchased this laptop, exactly a week later, the whole computer froze up on me and I was completly stuck with a brick. Spoke with Acer tech support by chat every single day for about 2 weeks (Because the first week and a half they kept running me in a circle with the same steps, after I told them the fact I could not do a hard reset because it would freeze) they took my laptop in for repair and it took about another 2 weeks. Before I shipped out the laptop, it was completely packaged and safe. When receiving it, all that was inside the shipping box was the laptop itself shrink wrapped to cardboard with no safety protection or anything. Save yourself the trouble and buy another gaming laptop from a different company (Acer)
