You could be forgiven for thinking the Predator Helios 700 belongs somewhere in the Michael Bay universe. With an aggressive design language and innovative features, this is a must for every serious gamer.

The key USP here? The HyperDrift keyboard, which integrates directly with the system’s thermal architecture. The Helios 700 touts a pair of 4th-gen AeroBlade 3D fans, five heat pipes, and a vapor chamber. Press another button, however, and by sliding the keyboard out, you can expose two air intakes on top of those prominently shown on the rear of the machine. And this is no gimmick. The idea is to facilitate more efficient airflow, therefore maintaining a steady, cool and quiet breeze while also improving performance.

On the spec side, the Predator Helios 700 will boast Intel’s powerful 9th-generation Core i9 processors, 64GB of RAM and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics. With MagForce WASD keys which eliminate the time it takes between pressing them down and actuation, the  the Acer Predator Helios 700 bears a 17-inch, full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS display featuring a 3ms response time and native G-Sync for reduced screen tearing and microstuttering.
