Bottom Line

The Acer Predator Helios 300 G3-571-77QK is an affordable Acer Predator laptop which even features a more powerful GTX 1060 compared to its competitors GTX 1050 offerings. However, the tiny amount of storage space needs addressing if you own a larger game collection.


The Acer Predator Helios 300 G3-571-77QK is a bestselling gaming laptop that has been praised for its seventh generation Intel i7 processor, dedicated NVIDIA 10-series graphics, great price and for its fast SSD. However, it’s bigger and heavier than some of its competitors and its display is not quite as bright as the higher end Acer Predator laptops. Its cooling system will allow the Acer Predator Helios 300 to run cool during daily use, however, it does tend to heat up while gaming or working in more intensive applications.

    Acer is expanding its range of gaming laptops, filling in every conceivable gap. The Helios 300 range, which takes the form of both 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch laptops, is a step up from the Aspire VX 15 machine I reviewed earlier this month, but is still firmly in the mid-range.
