The Helios 300 is Acer's mind-range gaming laptop built on Intel Core H processors and 1060 graphics and overall one of the best value notebooks in this market. The excellent pricing and solid performance are its main selling points, alongside a nice keyboard, alright IO and a fairly good screen with 144 Hz refresh rate on the updated 2018 model. There are however still some aspects to improve, like the size of the battery, arguable design decisions and rather lackluster speakers. Read on for more details.

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.
