    Goes for around $2200. A bit cheaper than Intel's Core-i9 variant. The Helios 500 is still one of THE best cooled laptops on the market. Which would you get? AMD? Intel?

      Intel should just make the CPUs only and Amd just make gpus together like the Intel nuc so they can smash Nvidia pricing

      hey there dave, love your content and i dunno if you'll see this but i'm abit confused as i am a noob i guess at these things but which would be better for heavy gaming and i mean at ultra setting hours on end plus watching movies and downloading large files, the acer helios 500 with the i9 - 8950HK GTX 1070 with 6 cores or the one with the AMD graphic card and 8 cores???
      p.s i know you said the intel I9 is better for gaming and this for content creation but just wanted to hear your personal reason and why, thanks :)

    Sorry for this potentially stupid question lol but I saw a part in the video where you said some games perform better then others with the video card, that said what would be a better gaming laptop this Helios 500 or the Helios 300? This one is on sale now at amazon for only $100 more then the 300 ($1300) I don’t know much about gaming laptops and cards, I’ve been a console gamer my whole life and am looking to switch over and get a nice gaming laptop. Want to keep my budget around the $1200 to $1300 price range. I don’t do any video editing or anything like that but definitely want the most for my money. Also if there’s any other gaming laptops you would recommend I’d love to hear it, also if any of the fellow viewers have any advice or opinions I’d really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

      Get the 2019 Helios 300. It has Intel i7-9750H, GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, 16GB DDR4, 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD. Better for gaming then the 500 Ryzen 7.

    Took your advice with regards the latest 2019 models and purchased this model for my daughter for US$1299 from Amazon, added 16GB of RAM and a 2TB Seagate Firecuda Hybrid HDD, so have decent specs for under the US$1500 mark including P&P to Asia.

    If AMD didn't invent 1GHZ CPU, multi core CPU etc innovations,then probably Intel had no idea to develop this kind of developing things. Intel brags about their tech but AMD customers are the most satisfied ones.

    This AMD Predator does OUTPERFORM the I9 8750/GTX 1070 in every single gaming category including FPS. I do not know why multiple reviewers say if you are looking for a gaming machine then you should get the I9 8750 with the GTX 1070. This AMD 2700 with the vega 56 is MUCH better for games. I know because my friend owns 1 of each. The AMD also runs cooler.
    The problem with this AMD is the small 256 ssd and many of the expansion ports have been known to fail. Also for some reason this AMD screen is not near as bright as the I9 one.

    $1,650 right now at Amazon. That's not much more than if you put a desktop computer together with similar specs. Gotta love Acer.

      @william duncan no i already have the i7 1070 version, and i'm asking if you or anyone would recommend me returning this and getting the amd/vega helios

    • william duncan
      william duncan Před 7 měsíci

      o.o oh I thought you said that you already had the 1070 version and wanted to upgrade to 2060

    • o.o
      o.o Před 7 měsíci

      @william duncan the price difference between the i7 gtx 1070 HELIOS and the AMD/vega HELIOS is actually not that bad, and I would get it if it meant a 10% performance increase and more longevity.
      what do you think?
      I love the cooling/fan set up on the helios. I wish THIS had an rtx in it aha

    1/27/2019 You could have purchased the laptop for 1700 if you were a Prime member. That's $500 less. But since it comes with only a 256gB NVMe. You may spend the $500 upgrading memory and storage. 1 NVMe m.2 2280 (or SATA), 1 SATA m.2 2280, 1 SATA 2.5 in. drive bay.
    As much as I want to know what a laptop does. I want to know what a laptop doesn't do. I bought this laptop thinking I would get 2 NVMe drives and RAID 0. Now I'm not so sure I'm getting it. 2 NVMe drives RAID 0 were in big bold letters. The fine print said. Well, in some version, in some regions. I'll be happy with the laptop in either case; because I'm moving from 2012 up to 2018. It'll be quick. Just not as quick as I'd hoped.

    The ryzen one certainly became my goto 2018! It would have been great if you mentioned that it's the desktop processor inside this beast, meaning it's not soldered onto the MB and thus has upgradability if amd release future chips compatible with the slot type. For me this an added bonus.
