Play your favorite PC games in style with the obsidian black Acer 17.3" Predator Helios 500 Gaming Notebook. The keyboard is RGB backlight, allowing you to customize it in four different zones as well as five dedicated hotkeys so you can adjust on the fly.

The 17.3" IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. The display also features a 144 Hz refresh rate, 300 nits of brightness, and a 72% NTSC and 93% sRGB color gamut. NVIDIA G-SYNC technology syncs frames from the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM to the refresh rate of your screen to eliminate screen tearing. The display also features an in-plane switching panel for wider viewing angles. You can also output video to an external display via the DisplayPort or the HDMI 2.0 port with HDCP support.

The system is powered by a 8th Gen Coffee Lake 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8750H six-core processor. It also has 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 256GB PCIe NVMe solid state drive, a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive, Killer Ethernet E2500 Gigabit Ethernet, Killer DoubleShot Pro 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Thunderbolt 3, and USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A. Windows 10 Home is the installed operating system.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series Graphics Cards
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Not only are they powerful, they can deliver similar performance to their desktop counterparts with a slight performance difference. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best. Furthermore, this 10-series graphics card is VR capable so you can plug in your virtual reality headset to experience a new way to play.
NVIDIA G-SYNC Technology
NVIDIA G-SYNC creates a smooth gaming experience by syncing frames rendered by your GPU to the refresh rate of your monitor. This advanced process eliminates screen tearing and minimizes stuttering.
17.3" Full HD IPS Display
The 17.3" IPS display features a Full HD 1920 x 1080 screen resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. You can also output to an external display via the DisplayPort or the HDMI 2.0 port with HDCP support.
AeroBlade 3D Fans
The two thin, all-metal AeroBlade 3D fans keep your GPU and CPU cool. There are five copper heat pipes to distribute excess heat while four exhausts and two intakes quickly cycle in cool air and expel heat. When under heavy load, activate CoolBoost to increase fan speed and keep critical components cooled.

Windows 10

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.
