The only real disappointment is the 1080p display, which should be fine for maximizing performance while gaming, but still pales in comparison to some of the more pixel-dense laptops on the market.

The notebook also feature a standard-voltage 7th Generation Intel Core processor, latest high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series graphics, two NVMe PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration and up to 32GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory.

Unfortunately, as it is usually the case on such events, Acer did not reveal any details on pricing or availability but hopefully, that information will be available soon.


It consists of Up to 32 GB RAM. All the hard drives and RAM can be easily upgraded through a compartment door on the bottom of the notebooks. If this seems like your kind of notebook, you'll be able to get 15.6-inch models starting at $1,299, while 17.3-inch models start at $1,399. There's also plenty of port connectivity including Thunderbolt 3, two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort and Gigabit Ethernet. So, we got only a few for you. Both support Full HD resolutions (1920×1080 pixel) and are IPS panels.

The display supports Nvidia G-Sync for connecting to an external gaming monitor.

Apart from this, Acer also introduced its Aspire U27 which comes with a 27-inch Full HD wide viewing angle display, and a specially designed subwoofer that offers powerfully deep bass, this all-in-one provides entertainment with a punch.Further, the All-In-One comes with an ultrathin design of 12mm (0.5 inch) with a diamond cut v-shaped metal stand.


The Predator Helios 300 gaming notebooks with a 17.3-inch display will be available in North America in July starting at $1,399; in EMEA in August starting at €1,199; and in China in July starting at ¥9,999.

Acer Predator Z271UV provides WQHD resolution on a curved 1800R panel. Acer has also included Tobii eye tracking technology, and while most gamers won't use it - at least it's there if you ever want it.

Acer follows an interesting approach in designing its keyboard.
