Chassis, connectivity, screen Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-53-51BW
It sports a gamer design with its black frame with angular lines.
The AeroBlade technology takes care of its cooling by combining 2 fans AeroBlade 3D 4th generation which evacuate the heat by the grates present on the sides and in the back.
This gamer computer benefits from good connectivity including Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect wirelessly remotely, HDMI video outputs and mini-DisplayPort useful for easy connection to a TV for example, Ethernet and audio ports, a USB 3.1 Type-C and 3 USB 3.0 / .1 (compatible both USB 2.0), ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.
Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, here via a 4-zone RGB system, which is convenient for discerning its keys in the dim light.
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and particularly to videos with its precise Full HD definition and its 16 / 9th format. IPS, the screen reproduces colors more accurately than average while ensuring comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles. As it is anti-reflective treatment, the screen also offers better visibility than a bright slab in bright environment (ex: outdoor) and is more relaxing for eyes in prolonged use.
For this computer to express its full potential, keep in mind that it is necessary to install a complete operating system such as a Linux or Windows distribution.
For example, NVIDIA Optimus technology, which evaluates real-time graphics needs, can automatically switch between the Intel UHD 630 integrated in the processor and the dedicated graphics card.
Optimus favors the maximum Intel UHD 630 despite its very modest benefits because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy over the dedicated GPU more greedy and powerful. Both of course allow you to watch photos and video.
Performance, battery life of Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-53-51BW

The heart of this computer gamer shoulder well the RTX 2060 in games. Consisting of 8 GB of RAM and a Quad Core i5-9300H Coffee Lake Refresh processor, it delivers strong overall performance to satisfy a maximum of users.
Creative people will be interested in getting faster processing than a low-power Quad Core CPU in CPU-intensive CPU-intensive areas such as video editing, photo editing, and 3D rendering.
Finally with regard to the autonomy of this computer, whose heating and noise are rather contained for a 17-inch gamer, plan on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
