Reviews for the Acer Predator Helios 700 (i9-9980HK, RTX 2080)

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.

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.
