PREDATOR HELIOS 300: DESIGN

We will not be able to point out design errors in the Acer Predator Helios 300. It offers nothing surprising and is not going to stand out, which is also bad.

This gaming laptop really tries to stick to the gaming aesthetic with a metal case, black color with red accents and geometric cuts and tapered edges. Predator lettering and a silvery logo adorn the laptop lid, the plastic bottom of the tablet has two easily removable hard drive and RAM compartments that you can upgrade.

We also appreciate the number of ports available on this laptop. In addition to the two USB 2.0 ports and headphone Jack, the laptop is also equipped with USB 3.0 and USB 3.1, HDMI port, Ethernet and SD card reader, which will definitely come in handy if you are using the laptop along with the camera and so on.

A medium-sized laptop is definitely not small, it is also not too bulky and surprisingly light, contrary to the first impression. And while the Predator Helios 300 from our review doesn't have a hard drive, a laptop equipped with it will be heavier.

You can say that the design is an indication of how this gaming laptop works in General: it's not the best, it has a few flaws, but Helios has performed well in other areas where you'll find little reason to complain.
