That said, for a GTX 1060-equipped laptop, the Acer Helios 300 certainly offers quite a lot for its asking price. The combination of a 256GB SSD with a 1TB hard drive is especially generous when compared to the competition, with only MSI matching it pound for pound. Considering that Dell and HP offers GTX 1050 Ti laptops for only RM600 less than the Helios 300, the combination of a GTX 1060 and a 256GB SSD is definitely worth a punt.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» 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.

78%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
