early christmas present for my girlfriend

She had been using a laptop with integrated graphics for a few years she had been looking at me playing on my desktop pc and had been wanting to get into more games for a while so i bought this for her first gaming system and she's extremely happy also i'm impressed with its overall performance runs every game we've thrown at it so far with good framerates and smooth performance would definitely recommend this product.

A great product with clear graphics

I've had an Alienware laptop since 2011 which I had upgraded as far as it would go, so I had to get a new one. What a difference, this laptop is much cheaper than my Alienware was (even more when I think of the deal I had for Cyber Monday) but it's made such a difference to my online life already. I hadn't realised how tired my old laptop was. The 17" screen is crystal clear, great keyboard use, super fase and super quiet. I'm so happy with it. Thanks AO

Great laptop


Good product

This is a good product and it does everything I need it to do and slightly more.

Acer Predator Helios Laptop

Really fast laptop, great graphics and really clear. Fast to load and nicely laid out

A very capable gaming laptop

Purchased this for my 11 year old son. Previous laptop was unable to cope with the latest games he was playing so this was intended as an upgrade. Runs all his latest games with no problems. The chassis is well made and feels like a quality piece of hardware that will last. Being the 17.3 size It’s quite a large laptop so not quite as portable as the 15.6 version but we knew this already so not a surprise here. Intend to connect to a monitor in the near future. Onboard fans kick in to keep the laptop cool when running at full power. All in, very pleased with the purchase.
