Acer launches the Predator Helios 700 in the UAE

Acer’s newest Predator Helios gaming notebook, the Helios 700 is now available in the UAE.

Powered by Windows 10, the all-new Predator Helios 700 includes a unique HyperDrift keyboard that slides forward, allowing increased airflow directly through the top of the notebook, enabling gamers to push the powerful components to their highest potential. The Helios 700 is equipped with the new 9th Gen Intel Core i9 processors and 32 GB of DDR4 memory.

Paul Collins, MEA General Manager at Acer, said, “We are delighted to announce that the Helios 700 will be launched in in the UAE. The Helios 700 adds a new dimension to the line of Helios gaming notebooks. It is equipped with innovative, future-proof technologies, including a new 9th Gen Intel Core processor and a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU.”

The Predator Helios 700 notebook is equipped with technology including up to an all new 9th Gen Intel Core i9, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, and Killer DoubleShot Pro with Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX 1650 and E3000. The notebook’s 17-inch 144Hz FHD IPS display has a 3ms response time and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology and it comes with five speakers and a subwoofer.

One of the Helios 700’s features, its “HyperDrift” keyboard is part of the notebook’s thermal architecture, which consists of two of Acer’s engineered 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fans, five copper heat pipes, a vapor chamber and Acer CoolBoost Technology. By sliding the keyboard forward, two additional air intakes are uncovered above the keyboard and below the display, giving the powerful heat-generating components extra air flow for cooling and overclocking.

The HyperDrift keyboard is desgined to provide desktop comfort in a notebook form factor. A Precision Touchpad is also outlined with blue lighting and features two discrete mouse buttons below the pad. However given its size and weight, this would be at best a desktop replacement 

The Predator Helios 700 gaming notebook will be available in the UAE at Jumbo and Sharaf DG starting at AED 16,000.
