The Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition is an upgraded white and gold model that is only available for a limited time
Acer announced the Predator Helios 300 Special Edition alongside the Predator Helios 500 today. The Helios 300 Special Edition stands out from the standard version (and from pretty much any other gaming notebook) due to the all-white design and gold trim. These colors are traditionally more likely to appear on ultrabooks than gaming laptops.
The screen has been upgraded to a 15.6-inch 144 Hz FullHD 1920 x 1080 IPS panel, which offers smoother movement in fast-paced games (shorter frame rendering and input delay). The 7th generation Intel i7-7700HQ has been replaced with an unspecified 8th gen i7, which we suspect is the i7-8750H (6C/12T). The Nvidia GTX 1060 is carried over from the standard model.
The Intel Wireless-AC 9560 2x2 802.11ac provides wireless duties and includes Bluetooth 5.0. All other I/O carries over from the base model. The Helios 300 Special Edition is also a limited-edition product and there are plans to discontinue it in September 2018.
The Acer Predator Helios 300 Special Edition will be available soon, starting from 1599 Euros (US$1870). Note: EU pricing includes tax.
