Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 500 PH517-52-NH.QCNEX.003

85% Acer Predator Helios 500 review (2021 PH517-52 model – i9-11980HK, RTX 3080, mini LED 4K)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This 2021 Predator Helios 500 is an impressive performance and gaming laptop. The solid build quality, the miniLED 4K screen option, the competent IO, and the oversized thermal design are the main selling points of this Helios 500 over its counterparts, while at the same time its size and weight, the lack of a MUX switch, and its smaller battery might steer some of you away. All in all, this behemoth is more a desktop laptop than most of the other full-size performance options of this generation, and I'd expect this aspect to weigh in heavily in your final decision.
