Acer's 2020 Predator Helios 300 continues to do what this line has always done well, offering an upscale metal chassis and features in the face of mostly plastic competition. This time around it's better than ever, offering a super-smooth 240Hz display and dominating the gaming performance charts for notebooks we've tested in this class.

Ultimately, the Predator Helios 300 (PH315-53) is something you would want to play on. It is just comfortable. Well… if you don’t mind being cut (literally) by the Acer team design choices. Yep, we are talking about the same sharp edge that is supposed to make direct contact with your wrists.

Acer provides a pretty nice balance of value and performance here at 144Hz, as long as your ok with middling battery life, lower screen quality and a less portable design.
