Acer Predator Helios 500 (PH517-52) - disassembly and upgrade options

Acer Predator Helios 500 (PH517-52) review – puts most gaming laptops on their knees
Source: Laptop Media English
In the middle of testing, we figured something out. If you are not a die-hard enthusiast, nor someone that is looking for that extra 1 fps hiding in the corners, then, the Helios 500 might not be the right device for you. It is extremely heavy and clunky for today’s standards and doesn’t offer an awful lot more in terms of performance when compared to more portable laptops like the Lenovo Legion 7 for example. As far as the display options go, you can pick between a 360Hz 1080p IPS panel, and a 120Hz 4K Mini LED screen. They differ massively, but essentially, they let you take advantage of your extremely powerful hardware. We are soon going to update the review with more info about the 1080p option, which was the one we got.
