The Helios 300 is a powerhouse and a high-performance gaming laptop that's built to deliver the goods. It's also been crafted with state-of-the-art cooling technology to keep it cool and efficient.

We've tested the bigger brother of this laptop - the Acer Helios 500 - and if that experience was anything to go by this gaming laptop should be a lot of fun to game and work on. Easy overclocking and Killer ethernet and Wi-Fi 6E means the Helios 300 ticks all the right boxes and doubly so at this price.
