Acer Predator Helios 700 review [Core i9-9980HK + RTX 2080] – a desktop in a laptop disguise
Source: Laptop Media English
Acer Predator Helios 700 is one of the greatest gaming devices we’ve ever tested. It is interesting to see the HyperDrift technology actually works. Not only works, but it does also help the Helios 700 perform on a similar level as a desktop RTX 2080-equipped machine. It makes it extra intriguing to see it compared against other behemoths that we shall review. Perhaps it is safe to say that this laptop is truly capable of delivering 4K/ultra settings gaming.

Hands on: Acer Predator Helios 700 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Acer Predator Helios 700 promises to be one of the most powerful gaming laptops around, plus its unique HyperDrift keyboard is a really smart solution for keeping components cool. Anyone looking for a proper portable gaming laptop should look elsewhere though, with its 4.5kg heft proving restrictive.

The Helios 700 will be competing with the likes of the Alienware Area-51m, MSI GT75 Titan, and HP's Omen X gaming laptops. We'll be sure to put it through our full series of tests when it launches here, so stay tuned for that.

Acer Predator Helios 700 hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
With very limited time actually playing games on the Predator Helios 700, it’s difficult to talk confidently about anything other than its swanky HyperDrift keyboard, and that’s easily what will mark it out from the rest of the gaming laptops we see this year. It works as well as you’d hope and seems genuinely useful. The MagForce keys are also an interesting addition.

Overall the Acer Predator Helios 700 is a gaming beast with a lot of clever features up its sleeve. The sliding keyboard is great fun and practical for optimum cooling during gaming sessions, while the MagTouch depth-sensitive keys add yet another unique sales point.

Source: Techradar English
If you do happen to slot right into the Helios’ narrow niche, you’ll get excellent performance. It’s incredibly powerful. But even in that scenario, the noise levels might spoil your fun. If at all possible, try before you buy or at least ensure you have the option of returning for a full refund. It’s a subjective call, but this rig makes a massive din and we’re confident it will be a deal breaker for some. We’re glad the Acer Predator Helios 700 exists. It’s interesting. It’s innovative. And it’s very, very fast. It’s also very compromised. Thus, it’s not a laptop we can recommend without major caveats. But if you’ve processed this portable’s peccadilloes and think it might still suit your needs, it deserves a spot on your shortlist. There’s little else quite like it.

The main caveat is the serious impact to portability, while the lack of built-in 4K visuals and crazy-loud fans are also sore points. If that doesn’t put you off and you’ve got enough bank spare, then this Predator certainly has an incredible amount of bite.

The Acer Predator Helios 700 is the most powerful gaming laptop we’ve tested so far. However, it’s also very heavy, stretching the definition of the term "portable", and VERY loud, not to mention expensive. It's ideal for those new to overclocking and PC gaming, who perhaps don’t want to get into modding and tweaking just yet.

83.2% Acer Predator Helios 700 Laptop Review: Innovative gaming laptop with a lot of features | Notebookcheck
The brand-new Acer Predator Helios 700 is definitely one of the most exciting gaming notebooks of 2019. The positioning of its keyboard and touchpad can be changed thanks to a sliding mechanism, which gives the 17-inch device access to a lot of fresh air to cool its high-end hardware. Find out whether this idea actually works in our review.

Larger than most notebooks of its 17.3-inch screen size, the Helios 700 makes the most of it by providing an expansive, well laid-out keyboard (which slides out in unique fashion; more on that in a moment), dedicated gaming macro keys, quiet cooling fans, and a good sound system.

We’ll get this out of way first, because everyone wants to know about the “value” word. There is none. While the $3,999 price for the specs above is on a par with comparable laptops from the competition, this is no blue-plate special.

Comment

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.

Intel Core i9:

9980HK: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates eight processor cores clocked at 2.4 - 5 GHz (4.2 GHz with 8 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). Offers an unlocked multiplier that allows overclocking of the CPU.Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
