Hands-on with Acer's Predator Helios 500 and Helios 300 Special Edition (video)

Acer gave gamers a lot to look forward to today with its latest Predator PC lineup. Sitting proudly at the top of the tower of power, however, were its new notebooks, the Predator Helios 500 and Helios 300 Special Edition.

Both laptops pack in plenty of power on the go, including Intel's latest 8th Gen processors, up to 16GB of RAM (with room for even more), 144Hz displays with G-Sync support, and NVIDIA graphics. The Helios 300 Special Edition puts a special twist on things with a white and gold shell that looks pretty spiffy.

We got a chance to get some hands-on time with both laptops in the flesh after their debut at the Next@Acer event today. If either caught your eye, be sure to check out our hands-on videos with both.
