Earlier today Acer announced a special edition release of its 15.6-inch Predator Helios 300. In addition to being very, very pretty, it also comes with some neat upgrades.

The white and gold edition of the Helios 300 will boast an updated 8th gen Core i7+ processor, new 144Hz 1080p display, NVIDIA GTX 1060 GPU and Dual AeroBlade 3D cooling system.

This is the first time the Helios has included the fans. They can be controlled by the PredatorSense app and offer Coolboost, normal and silent modes.


I’m not usually one to be seduced by special edition releases, but this one has definitely captured my attention. Even though I know it would get filthy in my grubby hands in about an hour, I can’t help but fantasise about it sitting on my desk. Sigh.

To coincide with the new Helios 300, Acer are also releasing a suite of matching accessories – including a white and gold edition of its new Cestus 510 mouse, white and gold Galea 500 headphones, a fabric mousepad and a Rolltop Jr. Backpack. They are all super sexy too.

Unfortunately we don’t have any information on pricing and release date as yet.

  • Ohh noooo. I thought this was going to be a review and had my personal budget app out and ready to factor this into my life.

    My god it’s sexy. Digging the tessellation theme, too.

  • I like the color scheme but never would have described the enormous air vent at the back as ‘sexy’ – would definitely use some other four-letter words to describe it though. To each their own I guess.

    The hardware they’re putting in it doesn’t look like it remotely justifies that enormous cooling solution either, when other manufacturers are putting better GPUs into much slimmer machines…

  • is it the best looking Acer Predator ever? probably. It’s even better than the old 2008 desktop that had a motherflipping spoiler on it.

    but holy crap do I find it hideous.

  • Didn’t know up until five seconds ago that I needed this omg do I so need this.

    Do they have a 1070 equivalent?

    1080p 144hz portable awesome gaming.

    Yes plz!!!!!!!!!!
