Acer Predator Helios 700 can also be referred to as a battle station. As the Helios 700’s comfortable keyboard comes into play, the highly effective cooling kicks on, and the system also overclocks the powerful 9th Gen Core i9 CPU and RTX 2080 GPU that comes with it. But even at a high start price, the Helios 700 isn’t all that perfect, with the lack of accurate decent display and speakers. Disregarding, this is still one of the most durable and robust gaming laptops you could get.

ACER PH7177190D9 REVIEW
This gaming beast has two glossy blue curves on both sides of the lid. At the center, you’ll see Acer’s Predator logo, with blue backlighting. The interior hosts Acer’s HyperDrift keyboard, which is used in two modes: The docked mode and the undocked mode. When the keyboard is in the dock, it’s in its usual position and produces regular speeds. You can also undock the keyboard by sliding it down toward you; by doing this, you reveal the RGB-lit glass panel with well-crafted heat pipes underneath it. The undocking action triggers overclocking and also increases airflow as it exposes two intakes on either side of the pipes. This may be a little too flashy for some users.
SIZE AND WEIGHT
The size of the laptop is 16.9 inches wide, 11.8 inches in-depth, and 1.6 inches in Height. And the weight of the laptop is 10.8 pounds.
The Predator Helios 700 has a 17.3-inch, 1920 x 1080 display, which is equitably bright and has an effortless, 144-Hz refresh rate powered by Nvidia G-Sync technology.

The system comes with five replacement keys; they’re precisely for the WASD keys, Profiles in PredatorSense software enable you to adjust the keys for gaming or typing. You can even change the actuation of the keys within those settings from 1.0mm to 2.8mm. The keyboard also comes with some assignable keys for easy access to the system. As for the RGB lighting, there are three areas: the keyboard layout, the touchpad layout, and the heat pipe. The keyboard allows for per-key lighting and beautiful lighting effects.
The Predator Helios 700’s front-firing speakers are accurately loud. Even if I still think it needs a little bass. The Helios 700 has a Waves MaxxAudio software. This software gives you access to full customization choices for bass, details, width, and some other options.
Below this system’s glass panel, which is packed with heat pipes, is an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card, which has 8GB of video memory. Shadow of the Tomb Raider gameplay in highest settings and 1080p ran at 91 FPS.

On the left side, you’ll find two USB 3.1 ports, an RJ45 Ethernet port, a headphone jack, and a microphone jack, while the right side features one USB Type-C port, one Thunderbolt 3 port, and one USB 3.1 port. The backside has the power jack, an HDMI 2.0 port, and a DisplayPort.
it’s dual-channeled slots with 32GB DDR4-2666 RAM, which can be expandible to 64GB.
Due to the system’s high performance and power, the battery life is impoverished.

If maximum battery life is your concern, then consider looking elsewhere because the
The Acer Predator Helios 700 is a significant gaming beast when it comes to system performance. Also, this machine has a high cooling mechanism and a comfortable keyboard, all wrapped in a contemporary design. Despite all this, the screen’s display and sound don’t live up to the gaming laptop standards. Overall, the Predator Helios 700 is a reliable and well-built gaming laptop if you’re craving for performance.
