Predator Helios 700 is a 17-inch gaming laptop.
The "HyperDrift" mechanism allows the keyboard, touchpad, and palm rest to be pulled forward.
This allows for improved heat dissipation and the same ease of use as an external keyboard.


Reliable cooling structure

The cooling mechanism includes a 4th generation AeroBlade 3D fan, five copper heat pipes, a vapor chamber, and CoolBoost technology, which also prevents performance degradation during extended use.

High-end configuration

The CPU is a 9th generation Core i9 processor, GPU is GeForce RTX 2080 or RTX 2070, DDR4 memory is up to 64GB, and wireless LAN is Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax) compatible.
Killer DoubleShot Pro support is also supported, making the laptop as powerful as a desktop PC.

Acer's thorough attention to detail

The display is a 144Hz IPS panel with a 3ms response time and G-SYNC support.
The keyboard features RGB LED backlighting and anti-ghosting MagForce WASD keys.
It also features five speakers and a subwoofer, showing the manufacturer's commitment to sound.

Availability and Pricing

The product is scheduled for release in the US in July, with prices starting at 2,699.99USD.
