Gaming laptops often come with a level of compromise but Acer's new Predator Helios 500 gaming laptop offers full PC power with an incredible Intel Core i9. Unveiled at a recent 2018 Acer launch event, the powerhouse laptop comes in at 17.3" and weighs four kilograms. These specs make the laptop almost monstrous in size, but this increased size allows for the Predator Helios 500 to offer incredible performance features and a truly amazing laptop gaming experience.

Internally, the laptop packs a overclockable GeForce GTX 1070 GPU, 64GB of RAM and either 1TB of SSD storage or a 2TB mechanical hard drive space. The screen is also offered in multiple options, as it comes in either 1080p 144Hz or a 4K panel. The keyboard will feature full RGB lighting and the body will come with three USB3 ports, an Ethernet port, full-sized HDMI and DisplayPort outputs.
