The Predator Helios 300 is now $899 USD with a Core i7-7700HQ CPU, GTX 1060 GPU, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, and a 256 GB SSD. It's a fairly good deal considering that laptops with the same GPU often retail for over $1100 USD.

Amazon Prime Day begin today and at least one laptop manufacturer will be slashing prices for a limited time.

Acer has revealed that a few of its more popular models will be up to $200 cheaper including the Helios 300, Triton 700, Aspire E 15, and Aspire R 15. The price cuts aren't as deep as one would expect for Prime Day especially when compared to Amazon-branded devices like the Echo or Fire. Nonetheless, the savings are welcomed for those who are already on the fence.

A look at the specifications reveals that all the configurations on sale are running on last generation Intel 7th Gen Core ix CPUs with the sole exception of the budget Aspire E 15 and its Core i3-8130U. This suggests that Acer may simply be pushing out old stock for Prime Day in order to make room for newer models equipped with 8th Gen Core ix CPUs and even the rumored Nvidia Pascal successor.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
