The Acer Predator Helios 300 is a very solid performing mid-tier gaming laptop. Not only do you get a lot of value for your dollar, but the Helios 300 is a beautiful machine that will impress your friends. It delivers good graphics and overall performance and also stays cool while gaming. Just make sure you keep it plugged in because the battery life isn't great.

While only a marginal upgrade of the popular 2019 model, the updated 2020 Acer Predator Helios 300 remains one the of best-value mid-range performance/gaming notebooks of this generation. The sturdy build, uncompromised screen options, excellent gaming performance and thermals are among its main selling points, alongside its aggressive pricing. Too bad this is not available with AMD hardware, though.
