Acer Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop at its lowest price yet for Amazon Prime Day
The Internet is ablaze this week with news and deals on the best gadgets to purchase for Amazon Prime Day.
One particular deal we see as a potential impulse buy is the 15.6-inch Acer Predator Helios 300 for $900 USD. Unlike other discounted gaming laptops that are usually sold with older generation hardware to clear stock, this particular Predator 15 was announced only three months ago and is equipped with both Kaby Lake and Pascal processors. Most gaming notebooks sell for well over $1100 USD or $1300 USD with this particular i7-7700HQ and GTX 1060 combination, so to see a brand new offering retail for less than a grand even after taxes is worth a serious look.
Core specifications include:
- 15.6-inch FHD IPS display
- Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU
- GeForce GTX 1060 GPU w/ 6 GB GDDR5 VRAM
- 16 GB DDR4 RAM
The only catch we can find is that this is not the same flagship Predator 15 chassis we've praised in our reviews. Instead, the Predator Helios 300 chassis is the thinner and more mainstream variant of the Predator gaming family. Case rigidity and quality may not be the same as a result, but the very low asking price is a tough bargain to argue against.
