Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 16 PH16-71-74AS

Acer Predator Helios 16 is one of the manufacturer's first gaming laptops in an updated 16-inch format. It also has up-to-date components and an appropriate level of performance. The standard attributes of gaming laptops, in the form of RGB lighting and even removable panels on the case, are also here. You can complain about the weak sound of the speakers (which is a common problem for most competitors), and the not very convenient location of the USB-A pair on the right side (where they can interfere during games). Why the lion's share of gaming laptops remain without fingerprint or infrared sensors is also an open question. But in everything else, Helios 16 is a good option. However, its price is quite high — 105,999 hryvnias.

And somehow, the lacklustre battery life ends up playing into its desktop replacement design. The Predator Helios Neo 16, as previously mentioned, shines the brightest when it’s tethered to a play station because of its heft, flimsy, fingerprint-prone chassis, and bulky power brick, so keeping it plugged in only completes the equation. At S$2,198, the device graces the moderately-priced market with sleek aesthetics and competent performance, but has some faults that call for greater consideration in the decision-making process. The Predator Neo Helios 16 dominates on the field, showing that it’s possible to look and be great at the same time – even if it does stumble a little elsewhere.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
