7 Best Gaming Laptops of 2017 for Casual and Hardcore Gamers

Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop

Price: $1,049
Get It On: Amazon

With red backlighting, a metal chassis, and a 1060 graphics card, Acer has married form and function for a price that's not all that out of control. At just shy of six pounds, thePredator Helios is neither too bulky nor too slim, fitting that nice in-between spot.

Sadly, there's only a 256GB hard drive, no Thunderbolt, and you do need to immediately update the graphics drivers, but those are small sacrifices to make for such an affordable/budget gaming option on the higher-end of things -- especially one that competes with much more expensive units.

Predator Helios 300 Specs:

  • Display: 15.6" FHD Widescreen IPS 
  • Resolution: 1,920x1,080
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700HQ 3.8GHz
  • Memory: 16GB DDR4-2400MHz
  • Storage: SSD 1x 256GB
