Not sure if this is the best place to ask (or I should start a post) but I have a list of laptops that seem to be great deals for the specs that they're carrying. Just having a tough time deciding. They range from USD 1000~1600. There's one ASUS that could get as low as 1030 for a GTX1080 but the responses to it have not been so good. Just wanted some good advice on which ones I should get and ones I should be more concerned about. At least I hope others will find this list useful.

  • *Sager/Prostar Clevo w 9th gen i7 + RTX 2060 for $1299 - 500GB ssd, 16gb RAM, 144hz (no gsync but eh)Probably the most tempting laptop. It's seems super cheap for a RTX 2060; might be the best bang for the buck laptop out there. But some others seem good enough and a bit cheaper such as the Helios and ASUS w AMD. Anyone think the extra $300 over 1660ti laptops is worth for this? I feel like this one I could use for a good three years before changing set up. That it'll last a bit longer. Any drawbacks with Sager/Prostar from anyone else's experience?
  • Acer Helios 300 for $1088 - GTX1660ti; 144hz; 16GB DDR4; 256gb PCIe NVMe SSDMost affordable and well regarded option but I'm not sure abut the 256gb ssd. The higher storage ones cost a few hundred more but they were only a bit more expensive a few days ago. I like playing FIFA, Witcher 3, Metro, TW3K and some relatively newer games. Just not sure if the 256gb ssd is enough. Might have to constantly install and uninstall. The price-tag is really hard to resist, though. But maybe it's worth spending a bit more on the Sager with better storage and graphics card.
  • ASUS ROG Strix GL702VI for $1100 but through some discounts I can get to as low as $1039; i5-7200HQ; GTX1080; G-Sync (but 60Hz); 256gb SSD + 1TB HDDThis seems like an amazing deal. But the responses have been mixed. But a $1k laptop with gtx 1080 that will last about a year or two seem too good to be true. A bit suss but hella cheap. But again... for the lowest pricetag, a gtx 1080 that will last me a year or two.
  • ASUS w AMD Ryzen 7 + GTX 1660 ti for $1134Seems like another cheap good deal. But are ASUS laptops just not that well regarded? A lot of mixed reviews. But I like the design, the thinness. Plus it has a good entry graphics card.
  • ASUS ROG Zephyrus for $1311 - This one has a GTX 1070, 7th gen i7, 16gb ram, and 256gb ssd. Once again, ASUS isn't well received in amazon. This one's a bit more expensive than the Sager/Prostar. But I like the slim design and the GPU cards should be more or less equal, right?
  • ASUS ROG Strix Hero II for $1372 - 8th gen i7, RTX 2060, 16 GB RAM, 521gb PCIe SSD
  • Acer Helios 300 for $1384 - Only difference is bigger storage, 512 gbs this time. Same GTX 1660 ti and everything else. Considering there are cheaper laptops with seemingly better specs, maybe not worth the extra $300? Plus the others around this range seem to offer better bang for the buck.
  • Acer Helios 500 for $1400 - AMD Ryzen 7 2700, Radeon RX Vega 56; Vega 56 seems like a really good card. But should I be considering this when there are rtx 2060 n gtx 1080 laptops available for cheaper or around the same price?
  • Sager RTX 2070 for $1499 - Seems like a great deal for a 2070 card. But might still be pretty pricey for me. Yet considering some of the others, for value, this seems really good
  • Acer Triton 700 for $1502.49 - GTX 1080 w G-Sync 120Hz, 512GB SSD. Again, like teh Sager, this seems like an amazing deal for the card and monitor. Only drawback I see is the trackpad
  • ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 for $1549 - GTX1080 w 144Hz G-Sync, 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 8th gen i7Similar price range as the previous two. I like the Zephyrus design better but that's really about it. But like the other ASUS laptops, it has mixed responses.

    Just for reference, I bought my previous laptop (now blue screened and unusable) four years ago. I wasn't (and still am not) very tech savvy so I wasn’t sure if it was a good gaming laptop back then. But these are the specs for my ASUS A501U: 6th gen i7; GTX 950M; 126gb ssd + 500gb hdd. I'm sure any one of these laptops will be great compared to my mingy 950M.

    Which one of these would you guys recommend? Thoughts on how black friday might change the price? Should I wait for BF or just get one sooner?
u/fritocloud · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

I bought my laptop from Amazon. Was a little worried about it being damaged during shipping but I was confident that Amazon would make things right if that happened. I bought directly from Amazon, rather than from a 3rd party seller (make sure it says "Ships from and sold by" under the Buy button.) Unfortunately for me, when I bought it, it was $1,199 but fortunately for you, it is now $1,088. I'm honestly very surprised they lowered the price like that, considering it was already a steal at $1200 (IMO.) Oh, and for the record, I had no issues with damages during shipping. The laptop was in a box which was in a box which was in another box and there was plenty of protective elements within those boxes.

I have not had too many issues with my thermals, although this is my first gaming laptop so I don't have much to compare it to. I did a lot of reading before buying though so from what I have seen, I think it does a good job of keeping the components cool, even under heavy loads. The highest I have seen it go is around 85°C but once it gets over 80°, I usually either turn the fans up higher and/or get out my cooling pad (I bought this one from Amazon and have been pleased with it.) However, the fans can get really loud, so I use a headset when I have to turn the fans up. In general, the fans are not too loud, though (once again, just my opinion.) I will often play shows on Netflix or Hulu and can hear everything through the laptop speakers with no issues. I do carry around a portable bluetooth speaker for louder environments but when I'm just sitting at home, it is not needed.

I do remember reading that the older models of the Helios 300 (the ones with red accents and backlighting) had a lot of thermal issues and most people who either reviewed both or just owned both said that this model was significantly better in that regard. One thing that I have thought about doing is changing the thermal paste because that would apparently really help the older models but I have not seen any reports of anyone trying it with the 2019 model. I might just give it a shot because it seems like a very cheap and relatively easy way to shave a couple degrees off the temps. I'll have to look into that some more.

I actually have heard of that good xbox gamepass deal but I had no idea that it had PC games. As someone who has pretty much only gamed on PlayStation (at least since the early 2000's), I often forget that Xbox is owned by Microsoft so it makes sense they would have PC games. I will definitely be signing up for that after I finish writing this comment. Thank you so much for clueing me in.

One other thing, you will probably want to quickly buy another m.2 SSD because the one that comes with the laptop is fairly small. Just be careful about the one you buy because they are not all compatible, apparently. I am pretty sure that Acer has a list out there somewhere (though I don't think the list is all inclusive) but I bought this Sabrent 1TB drive based on what another reddit user recommended and have been very happy with it. It was extremely easy to install as well. I haven't gotten around to buying an 2.5" drive yet but I'll probably pick up a very large HDD around Christmas time. Or I might go for the SSD, maybe sacrificing a little bit of storage. I'll have to check prices at the time and think on that some more.

And no problem. I love talking about this laptop and I also enjoying helping people out so no worries. If you think of anything else you want to ask, I'll be here. If not, enjoy your new laptop!

u/MrDraagyn · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

A good gaming laptop, first and foremost has a good GPU, so starting with a 1060, then 1660, 1070, 1660ti, 2060 etc... So between 600 and 800, you could probably find a 1060 pretty easily.

Secondly you want a good processor (an i5 should be fine, look for an 8th gen, like the 8300H) I'd stay away from AMD/Ryzen processors, their laptop stuff is pretty garbage, their desktop stuff is phenomenal though.

Thirdly, 8gb of ram is fine, but keep in mind you may want to upgrade a few months to a year down the line (installing RAM is super easy, just YouTube it)

Fourthly, an SSD is really nice for gaming (vs an HDD). Alot of the laptops you look at will have 128gb of SSD + 1TB of HDD. While that will help your machine boot quickly (windows will be installed on the faster SSD) there is not enough room on that boot drive for many games, so you'll most likely be putting them on the HDD which will cause slower load times. I'd rather have 256gb of SSD alone than 128gb of SSD + 1TB of HDD. You can always upgrade your SSD later though and can get a fairly decent 1TB one for $100 or so (not quite as easy as RAM usually but still pretty easy, and there should be plenty of YouTube videos on that as well)

Fifthly do not worry about getting a 4k screen or whatever, there are no laptops than can utilize 4k to it's fullest on any games more recent than 2012, and those are beastly machines.

60hz screen is perfectly fine when you're on a budget, but 144hz is always nice to have if you're machine can handle it.

I can't think of anything else...

Edit:. This would be a good option:
ASUS TUF Gaming Laptop FX504 -

Edit 2: this one as well, I had almost this exact laptop, but mine had an i7 and 16gb of RAM, I traded it in only because it wasn't powerful enough for the intensive 3d modelling I do for work. Really nice build quality and a super nice keyboard:

u/dimryan · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

It does help! I’ve been out of the loop laptop-wise for a while, but I’m still pretty in touch specs-wise. If what you want is a portable machine with whatever battery life that can play r6 and MMO’s, you would a laptop with an intel Core i5 7th gen, (or amd equivalent), a gtx 1060 (or amd equivalent), 16 gb of ddr 4 ram, a 1080p screen with 60hz (I highly recommend 120hz or greater) and whatever storage you want. All this is with future proofing for at least a year in mind

But, you can blow all of those specs out of the water with a budget of up to 2000$. I would recommend you buy a machine that will last you a while. For your CPU, an intel Core i7 8750hq, for your GPU (graphics card) an rtx 2060, 16 gb of ddr 4 ram clocked at 2400mhz, and, again, whatever storage you want.

(Keep in mind that and SSD is better than a hard drive in that it’s load times for whatever is stored onto there is a lot faster than a hard drive). I also recommend a 1080p screen with a 120hz refresh rate or higher.

Anyways, hope this helps! Please ask any questions in DM’s or this thread! I’ll probably go and edit this comment later with some laptop recommendations because now I’m invested.

Acer Predator Helios 300 for 1200$

I also highly encourage you to check out the YouTube channel Jarrod’s Tech Review as he does really good reviews on gaming laptops. There’s a lot of techno-speak, but he’s very in-depth and I trust his opinion on recommendations.

I also like Dave Lee just try and steer clear of the razor blade laptops. They are very good laptops with very good performance and specs, and they look beautiful, but they’re overpriced in my opinion and outside your budget of 2000$.

u/koimatsu · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Seeing your comment about keeping things under $1,000 I believe I can recommend some decent options.

First and foremost: do most of your shopping pre-owned if you roll that way. You can nab some really good prices for things if you look in the right places. eBay, local Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace is a haven for full-on desktops but sometimes have laptops too. LetGo sometimes has them. Basically, make sure you're thorough.

Second: For a under $1k price range, Sager/Clevo seems a good option. Good specs at lower costs. Just make sure to also invest in a heating pad, as it's not uncommon for gaming laptops to get a little spicy under duress. You can actually custom build a Sager on their official website (through presets they provide, but it still allows for customization) if you're curious about tooling the specs.

Third: Consider the brands you select. Do research on the best brands and be open-minded to your options. I myself have used HP Omen laptops and have found them suitable and a pleasant experience, but I know some people would avoid them like the plague.

899$ option packs a 1050 3GB. Not fantastic, but you should be able to run most things on low-medium or maybe high depending on what you play.

This Predator Helios 300 sports 144hz refresh rate and a full-size 1060, which should handle things pretty well at 1080p (I had a 1060 in a desktop and it kicked ass.)

Finally, this one sports a 1650 4GB with a Ryzen 7 CPU.

My recommendation is to search Amazon for the graphics card you want in a laptop as that will usually determine pricing.
Another recommendation is to search the graphics card you want and find benchmarks for various games (I prefer Technical.City benchmarks as they do LOTS of games and provide a visual to show it's performance compared to minimum and recommended specs.)

Good hunting friend!

u/jaeger01 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Okay, So i'll start by stating that i have no experience with Sager laptops nor i have met anyone irl who has used it. but the reviews are good. you should be satisfied with the laptop i'm positive.


I originally was thinking of building a PC but couldn't because of i did not have enough space. then i decided i was going to buy the desktop replacement for almost 3000$ , in the end i bought an HP Omen 17. and believe me when i tell you the laptops like GT76 or desktop replacements are sort of an overkill. sure you are getting better performance, but the price - performance ratio is not good.


if you're buying a laptop for 2000 - 2500$ you are getting almost equivalent performance of a PC with the same budget (may like 10-20% less, but not significant). But once you go over that limit it starts making less sense.


My recommendation is to buy an RTX 2080 - 9th Gen i7 laptop with Gsync. which will be able to run all games at ultra at an average of 100 fps. which with Gsync is such a pleasant experience. My laptop can run witcher 3 in ultra settings at 100-110 fps and the CPU clocks around 3.9 GHz, 80C. i do not see why you would want more performance than this on a laptop but its just my opinion.


u/ITman2000 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

How about the [Helios 300] ( which is the best under that price range you mentioned. consist of a gtx 1660 ti which is better than the 1060 gpu. Also consist of the latest 9th gen i7 processor which is better than the previous generation.

sturdy build quality

compact, but still fairly heavy

good 144 Hz matte screen

excellent performance once tweaked

capable thermal implementation, but the fans need to spin fast and loudly in order to keep the components at bay

easy to upgrade

Powerful GPU which can run the latest games at high settings.

Very Fast CPU for high graphic intensive games.

keep cool when gaming

u/Naoki9955995577 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

I do have an alt: I bought this and am super happy. I did get 2nd stick of ram tho bc I wanted dual channel. Chassis is fantastic and screen is more than what I need honestly. The only complaint is it gets loud when gaming but I love headphones anyway.

Looking at your 2, the 2nd is just so much cheaper. It looks like a great deal.

ASUS ROG Strix Scar II Gaming...

u/SoggyBeanBottoms · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Uhhh well for newer laptops and for newer games that might be a struggle with that kind of budget but here’s one for you that would definitely be fine for games like Skyrim.

Acer Aspire E 15 Laptop, 15.6" Full HD, 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U, GeForce MX150, 8GB RAM Memory, 256GB SSD, E5-576G-5762

Just don’t expect to play with any mods or play any newer games too well with amazing frames.

u/cupcakes234 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

There are tons of gtx 1650 gaming laptops launching this or next month with intel 9th gen, most of them will be around $1k or slightly more or less. Although that card will run all the games you mentioned very well at max settings, it's not an incredibly powerful card for most AAA games.

I would suggest this Zephryus GA502 for $1200. It has a 120hz screen and gtx 1660ti max q card, which has has performance comparable or more than gtx 1060, and will last you for a long while. There's also a $1100 version of this laptop but with a 60hz screen instead of 120, but i can't find any links right now. Here's a review if you're interested.

If the extra $200 is too much, then you can't go wrong with the g531 for $1k. Compared to the other one, it has intel 9th gen instead of ryzen, isn't slim and has a gtx 1650. There's also a gtx 1660ti version and above for this, but seems like Asus hasn't put up e-retailer pages for it yet since they release later this month.

There's also this Acer Predator 300 with gtx 1060 that goes for $1k and is pretty popular and overall well-built but it runs very hot. Unless you want to cook food on your laptop, honestly wouldn't really recommend it.

u/figgzz007 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

If your choice is between the two, I suggest the MSI as it has better cooling performance compared to the ROG. Don't get me wrong, both are still very good options for what they are. Some people have been reporting regarding overheating issues with the ROG. The MSI has better cooling due to its flipped motherboard and there is ventilation in front of the keyboard. However, this makes changing out the SSD and RAM more of a challenge as you would need to remove the motherboard. The ROG has its shortcomings too. The RAM is configured in a way where one slot is free but the other RAM module is soldered to the motherboard. This means that it runs at single-channel out of the box and you would need to add another RAM stick in order to run at dual-channel. This also limits you to a maximum of 32 GB if you want to run at dual-channel. I have another recommendation to make which is the Acer Predator Triton 500. It is basically a twin the GS65. Has the same internals but with better build quality and imo looks better than the GS65 and is not available in 240Hz which I think is fine as 240Hz is overkill and not necessary as 144Hz is more than enough. The Triton 500 is also cheaper than the GS65 and the ROG. Might be worth a look.

u/Onui · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

May I suggest you with HP Omen 17" i7-9750h, 16GB RAM, 256 GB NVMe + 1TB HDD, RTX 2080 (Full), G-Sync 144 hz display? It has all the ports you need including SD card reader and Thunderbolt 3.

Old models had some heating issues, but this particular 2019 model has max fan settings so it does good job with taking heat out of the machine. Battery life is slightly better than Y740 without having to losing HDD space.

I undervolted my CPU and boom, love this purchase and I do not regret returning my Y740.

I believe Y740 only comes with Max-Q variant. Why pay more for less?!

*Forgot to mention that the power bank size is quite crazy actually. Do check my review on Amazon or in this sub, I included some pictures and etc.

u/tjrissi · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

If weight is not a problem, i would recommenced finding a Acer Predator laptop. The Helios 500 looks great and very future proof, although over $1,500. The Helios 300 is 15.6in and very portable, reasonably powerful, reasonably priced and probably the best bang for you buck gaming laptop out there. I had the 2017 Helios 300 and it was a great laptop. I have full trust in the Predator line of laptops, I have had a few over the years and have never had one that disappointment me.

u/darksoldier57 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

MSI has some good looking ones, like this. You could also get some great alienware configs for that price.

Also here is a great Acer Predator for $1100 that has specs better than some $1900 laptops I've seen.

u/thedaysleeper1 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

You come to the right place my frend, the [MSI GP63] ( would be a great choice laptop for you. This laptop consist of a gtx 1070 gpu which is very good for gaming, i7 8th gen processor with 6 cores which delivers a wonderful performance. Only drawback witht this laptop is the 3 hours of battery life if you don't mind. Another choice is the [Helios 300] ( which overall is a great laptop. Comes with a gtx 1060 gpu, i7 8th gen processor, IPS screen display with wide angle viewing, 7 hours of battery life.

u/haazyreads · 3 pointsr/GamingLaptops

The ASUS range is best value for money. I would have purchased this one from amazon if Australia didn’t impose an import tax on it that offset the value. If you can wait for it to go on special, it’s an excellent buy.

Otherwise the latest gen ASUS Predator with a 1060 is a bargain buy now.

u/RaidForceDelta · 3 pointsr/GamingLaptops

For under $700 I think the best thing you're going to find is the Lenovo Ideapad L340. Note that this was recently on sale for $600.

I am certain it can play Classic WoW without issue. I don't know much about Farcry and Borderlands 3, but per this excellent video review it can play Witcher 3 on high settings at average FPS >60.

u/99K9s · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

The y540 from Walmart, or the newer version of the Helios 300 are better options. The Helios will drop to under $1000 for black Friday. It sold out pretty quickly last time.

They perform nearly identically (after tweaking y540), so just decide which look your son would prefer. Y540 is understated, the Helios is gamer. Other differences, the y540 comes with a larger SSD (512 vs 256), and the Helios comes undervolted and OC'd out-of-the-box (minor to do yourself, but be aware). I'm sure he'll be thrilled with either!

And, no, he doesn't need more than 16gb of RAM. Although, both are easily upgradeable in the future.

Lucky kid!

u/RussianDeepstate · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

If you don't mind buying used very good this is under 1k and really nice. If you have access to micro center they have an hp omen for 999 that's really nice but a dim screen. Basically in that price range you are looking at a GTX 1060 6gb, which is a great gpu. What else is important to you? Even size, build quality, weight, screen quality or refresh rate?

u/PopCqrn · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

I was gonna get omen but got Alienware, overpriced but well worth the price

Edit: check this out for 1000 dollars or get a 1060 and and i7 like the two options Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop, 15.6" Full HD, Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD, GeForce GTX 1060-6GB, VR Ready, Red Backlit KB, Metal Chassis, G3-571-77QK

u/BuyMeaSalad · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Acer Predator Helios 500 PH517-61-R0GX Gaming Laptop, AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Desktop Processor, AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 Graphics, 17.3" Full HD 144Hz Radeon FreeSync Display, 16GB DDR4, 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD

I’ve always been interested in going the full blown AMD route, and this one seems to be really good. Everyone talks about how cool it runs, and how the AMD graphics card runs really well. I think I read it’s comparable to a 2060 or 1070 in performance. Worth checking out

u/Speedwizard106 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

I've been researching laptops within your price range for a few weeks now. I keep coming back to this which seems to be the best specs for the price. Features full RTX 2070 (basically the second best laptop gpu you can get), 144hz display, and 17 8750h cpu. It also seems to be on sale for 1799.99, which is the lowest I've ever seen (been checking it pretty much everyday). Theres also this which is the pricier 17" model. It's bigger so probably better cooling/thermals and comes with more storage space.

u/mst_spica · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

If you do not mind carrying a few pounds heavier laptop, I recommend you check out Acer Predator Helios 300.

It actually priced at just $1,100


Then again, if you plan to do heavy video / image editing, pay attention to the color accuracy. This laptop has: 300nit Brightness and 72 percentage NTSC. You don't have to pay attention to this if you are planning on having a dedicated monitor which you will be using for editing.


Edit2: You know what, if you don't mind spending a few hundreds dollars more, go ahead get the Aero Gigabyte. It has certified color accuracy, huge battery, and most likely lighter.

u/LoopyGroupy · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Here're a few that you could look into:


you can probably run both games fairly smoothly with these laptops... Though not sure about that last one, I guess it sorta depend on how hard you gonna mod your skyrim... It's definitely powerful enough for the vanilla tho running on medium/high with more than 60 fps. The first two you can probably play most modern games with as well.

u/LTHardcase · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

I have to ask this for clarity. In what country are you? If you're in the US there are deals like this, but if not I'd be willing to look at some of your country's laptop stores if you need help looking. To answer your original question, about TW3 and a 1050, watch this detailed video.

u/Acebeans · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

Just look around for the best deal you can find that has a 1050 ti. I doubt you'll find anything with a 1060 for under 700. If you can go up a bit you might be able to find a 1060.

Something like this would be good. I would upgrade the RAM to 16 GB down the road if you can.

u/Hitokage_Tamashi · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Depends on the model. The new M15/M17 lineup is actually really legit, but it's limited to single channel RAM due to size limitations; this isn't a massive deal, but it'll make the CPU perform slower than it should and unfortunately there's not another slot, unlike on other laptops where OEMs will often just leave the second slot unpopulated. Do you know what your budget is yet? If you can do $1.2k, the Acer Predator 300 is fantastic for the price, especially if you're just going to be using it at home and for like LAN parties or something

u/Vegito_Sama · 4 pointsr/GamingLaptops

I'd recommend the ASUS TUF 505. It has a Ryzen 3750H which is a decent CPU. For the GPU it has a full desktop grade 1660ti. It also has a 120HZ IPS panel with great colour accuracy. All this for just $1099.

Amazon link :

u/aminmo · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

I ordered an Omen 17 the other day, and it seems to have good specs for the price:

For around $2k you're getting:

  • Intel i7-9750H
  • RTX 2080 8 GB
  • 16 GB RAM (2 DIMM)
  • 256 GB SSD & 1 TB HDD
  • 144hz Display
  • And supposedly G-Sync? (not 100% sure on this)

    However, mine's coming in on Thursday so I haven't tried it out yet lol, so it's possible this laptop may be utter shite.
u/MrVulnerable · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Hey brother. Please help me.

I'm about to order mine tomorrow.

Can you please suggest me which 512GB SSD should I buy?

u/erroneous-thoughts · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

From a quick look at the recommended specs you want a laptop with something equivalent to or better than an i5 6600k, 16 GB RAM, and 4 GB of video memory. You can shop around between brands but this is the first I found that meets the specs: GTX 1050, or the following which has a 1060 which would have a much easier time running the game: GTX 1060

u/rafaelloaa · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

I'm looking at the Aero 15. Specifically this skew, w/ i7-9750H/1660ti/144hz/1080p. However, I would really like the refresh (with the gap below the screen) with the same specs, not the classic, due to better thermals. I see one listed on Gigabyte's site here; listed as the AERO 15S SA. (pic).

It's exactly what I want. Problem is, I can't find a listing for it anywhere except for on AUS sites (I'm in the US). Does anyone know if it can be bought in the US; or if there's a different skew that matches my needs? (1080p/144hz/non-OLED).

Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop, 15.6" Full HD, Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD, GeForce GTX 1060-6GB, VR Ready, Red Backlit KB, Metal Chassis, G3-571-77QK

I purchased the 17.3" about a month ago. If you have a best buy around you they have the above model in stock (well, mine did at least).

Yes, it does get a little hot in my opinion but I just purchased a cooler for it and it's fine.

u/Palindar772 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Does this model have g-synch ?

The price seems really good for Europe. I have seem some retails have g-synch and other not. But those that get the model without sometimes report in their reviews on that they have g-synch.

You cant your i7 2080 version on or the UK. They on have the i9 version that way too expensive. But in the USA they have an omen 17 i7 with 2080 and g-sync like your model for $1875 USD which is 1669 euros converted.

u/Shravan9432 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

This one has a 2070 max p so it has maybe a 10-15% performance drop compared to a full 2070.

Asus has bad customer service sometimes.

These are two good options I could find with an rtx 2070 and meeting your budget and other stuff like refresh rate, Cpu etc. 8750h and 9750h are almost the same in terms of performance so don't worry about that. Good luck.

u/edit1754 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

The specs look good on paper but it has a low quality TN display with poor contrast and viewing angles a bit like the left side of this photo: which I would say is really not good for a laptop costing $1149 letalone $1249. Companies using low quality displays in higher priced laptops is something you unfortunately really have to watch out for in today's market.

It's also the 1060 3GB which isn't a bad GPU, but it may be worth knowing that it's less performant than the 6GB version because it has a lesser core -- the memory difference is a bit of a red herring.

I think the best contenders for around this price are:

u/Souschef87 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

If you are willing to spend ~1400 i'd suggest this




I would not suggest getting the laptops listed in your postfor this amount of money purely based on the fact that they have 1050 gpus. Go for the best GPU possible in my opinion.

u/Natzely · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

This thread is about month old so not sure if I'll get a response.

I bought this M.2 Drive for my secondary drive and it did not work. It either would not load windows from the primary after installation or the disk manager would not detect even if the BIOS did. What makes it different than the Crucial M.2 or the Sabrent both which have been claimed to work?


I'm pretty much having this exact issue.


EDIT: I returned the ADATA drive and bought the Sabrent. The Sabrent worked fine when I restarted my computer once after the installation.

Acer Predator Helios 300

Purchased it on December, I've been playing The Witcher, Fortnite, Overwatch, call of duty and several other demanding games, all of them at High settings and I've reached 120 FPS in all of them. It has a great cooling system called PredatorSense. It has an extra SSD slot for you to purchase another one, btw.

u/slider162 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

$1,000 = Acer Predator Helios 300 (Amazon Daily Deal, Act Fast!!!)

$1,500 - $2,000 = Lenovo Y540 or Y740 (IntelGamerDay Deals)

Lenovo has some great deals on their web site right now. Web site is acting up at the moment so it is hard to provide a link at the moment.

u/adamgt86 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

Check out the Acer Nitro 5. Probably the best laptop in that price range.

u/jo312ovin · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

I got the new Asus tuf it's a great PC shouldn't be more than your price cap here's a linkAsus tuf

u/Linklingonreddit · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

You should get a Acer Predator Helios 300. It’s got the latest laptop core i7, GTX 1660ti 6gb, 16gb of memory and a great 144hz IPS display. (This is not the UK link I’m sorry)

u/FamousPlate · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Both really gd but I would choose Gx701 this is in same level of razor blade but wait better in my eyes for thermals and performance

u/ReimiS · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Acer just released this, $1099 with a IPS display, good cooling, 1060 6GB i7 7700HQ and a 256GB M2 drive. Very solid for that price point.

u/rikoasis · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Not sure exactly what you had in mind, but this is pretty good bang for your buck after taking all the specs into consideration.

u/grendelone · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

In general, you should be looking at a minimum for:

u/my_work_account_0 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

It can be found on Amazon HERE for 1092.

Amazon had it for 999 on prime day I believe. I would wait until black friday or cyber monday if you can. You could also get it now on the acer recertified website if you want for 899. It looks like they have a 90 day return policy.

u/witFWD · 5 pointsr/GamingLaptops

I recommend this one better:

It’s called GX502GW, it has a full rtx 2070 unlike that 2080MQ. Moreover this is much newer than the one you link.
Wait for a sale for this one!

At that price, you need to get a full blown rtx card instead of MQ.

Also ASUS are known to be amazing but really really loud. Then again most gaming laptops are inherently loud.

u/kuroti · 3 pointsr/GamingLaptops

This laptop is awesome, good price, good thermals and a real desktop 8 core ryzen 2700. It might or might not be upgradable to zen2 in the future but in case it gets a bios update the motherboard is capable of supporting up to 65watt tdp processors so in theory it could rock a 3700x, hard to imagine such power on a laptop but even with a 3600 it could destroy every single laptop on the market out there at this price point. It would even trade blows with some of the alienware and msi $4000 i9 9900k laptops.Also the desktop grade AMD vega 56 is quite capable (similar to a 1070), you can expect high performance out of this machine.
The only thing to consider is that the battery life will be bad and this laptop is quite big, thick and heavy if that is something that bothers you.

u/AscariVX · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Anything with specs to handle those games are going to be plasticky and a bit thick with a tacky "gamer" design. That's just how it goes. That being said:

If you want specs, the Acer Helios 300 with a 1060 and a 144Hz display will fit the bill.

If you care for style more, the Aspire 7 with the 1050Ti evades the typical gaming laptop look but still comes in under $1000.

u/Bubaroo3 · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

The 1050 is a fairly weak card that is already outdated. If I were you, I'd wait until Black Friday and look for deals on the Helios 300 with a 1660TI. It's going to be so much more powerful and last you much longer

It's currently on Amazon for $200 more than the one you linked, but it's been on sale for $999 on Amazon before, and I'd expect that to happen again around Black Friday / Cyber Monday

u/bogeybirdieman · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Hey, I was just looking at that yesterday (same price on Amazon) and trying to decide if I should bite or not! The G703GX is heavily discounted, as is this G701:

So, between the G703GX and the G701, what are people's thoughts? One is a tank and real desktop replacement, one is more mobile. Is there a clear choice between them beyond whether mobility matters to a person?

The G703GX is slightly more upgradable, no?

u/gaminglaptopsjunky2 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

This one is now selling for $700 with 120HZ IPS and it would probably be better to add some more RAM

u/Khelgar_Ironfist_ · 2 pointsr/GamingLaptops

Helios 500 at 1300$ currently on Amazon is an absolute bargain for the hardware and cooling you get if you don't need high portability and battery life.

u/pursuitofsuccess1 · 0 pointsr/GamingLaptops

Number 1 at that price in my book. You get everything you need for gaming and more.

u/__redruM · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Look at the ASUS and Alienware laptops in your price range. Make sure and get a RTX2080, plenty of SSD. Stay away from 4k, look for a monitor at 1440p or 1080p monitory at or above 144hz.

u/G-Love80 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Just a heads up, there is a newer model of the Predator Helios 300 releasing soon that has a 1660 Ti graphics card. Looks like it will start at $1,200.

u/olmecmx · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

i also hear that the Helios 300 with the 9th gen and the 1660ti its also really good. prices might drop on prime day on different stores if you can wait.



Look at online reviews, multiple not just one and you will see how thin or not they are.


Another thing that i forgot to mention, if you get a G-SYNC or G-SYNC Compatible monitor. you can plug it on the Display Port on the Y545 for G SYNC features


This Video shows what Gsync does.


u/its_hiiiigh_nooooon · 3 pointsr/GamingLaptops

Well, for that price I would suggest this Acer:

It's cheaper and it even has a GTX1060. Check it out!

u/Z2810 · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Do you want gaming in this laptop because if not I would recommend the LG Gram. If not and you want a gaming laptop for that much i would recommend this:

u/white_hyppo · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops


Well Helios 300 with 9750H, 144Hz, 1660ti is comparable by performance and is just $1179

u/LavishNaijo · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

I mean if you don't care about the 144hz screen @OP, if you you'd be willing to settle for the previous model (same specs iirc, 60hz panel) then I'd be willing to sell you my Helios 300. I added in the keyboard cover and a 1TB Seagate drive to the 2nd drive slot.
I really don't play much games anymore so I bought a thinner laptop. I'd give it to you for under $1k. PM if you're interested

u/lesharcerer · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

what's your opinion on Triton 500 17 9th gen vs Helios 300 17 9th gen. I am new to the gaming laptops arena. i know the helios 9th gen launched this year, what about the Triton, is it a new release too?

I don't game, i am taking a gaming laptop for some heavy CS stuff.

Also, it's a bit unusual, the Triton 500 doesn't have any reviews at all. linking both below.


u/daaangerz0ne · 1 pointr/GamingLaptops

Here is the Y740 with similar specs (same cpu/gpu). Asus has 1TB drive (vs. Lenovo's 512GB) and Pantone validated display. Not worth $1000 more, but at the current discount seems reasonable.
