Aside from the 2022 Nitro 5, Acer has also officially launched another gaming laptop in Malaysia. Just like its Nitro sibling, the 2022 edition of the Predator Helios 300 also made its world debut earlier this year at CES.
Similarly, the new model also features a new chassis which looks slightly sleeker than its predecessor. That doesn’t mean the laptop has lost its “gaming” vibe though as the Predator team has added a thin RGB light bar below its palm rest area alongside having a per-key RGB backlit keyboard with Mini LED backlights.
Both of these RGB areas can be customised using the PredatorSense app that can also be used to overclock the laptop and manually control its fan speeds. Additionally, the Helios 300 continues to feature the Turbo button that allows users to quickly access the Helios 300’s full firepower.
At the moment, only the 15.6-inch model is available in Malaysia for the time being which also carries a 165Hz QHD IPS panel and Intel Core i7-12700H as standard. The base configuration for the 2.6kg laptop includes 16GB DDR5-4800 RAM, 1TB SSD, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics as well as a price tag of RM7,999.
For RM8,999, one can upgrade the graphics from RTX3060 to RTX3070. For those who require even more performance on their hands, there is also the option to have 32GB DDR5-4800 RAM, 2TB SSD in RAID mode, and RTX3070 Ti for RM9,999.
Ultimately, you can choose to swap the RTX 3070 Ti with an RTX 3080 for RM11,999. The new 2022 Predator Helios 300 is now readily available through Acer Malaysia eStore and Acer official stores in Lazada as well as Shopee.
Covered by a 2-year on-site warranty that also includes protection against accidental damage and theft, the new gaming laptop can be obtained at authorized Predator dealers across Malaysia too. Customers that purchased the 2022 Predator Helios 300 by 14 July can redeem either RM250 TnG eWallet credit, RM255 Netflix Gift Card, RM200 Steam Wallet, or Acer Gateway Pro Wireless Headset.
