All that power bring games to life on the notebook’s 17-inch 144Hz FHD IPS display with 3ms response time and NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. Five speakers and a subwoofer keep the games immersive and engaging with full and realistic audio.

One of the Helios 700’s most interesting features is also incredibly useful. Its HyperDrift keyboard is part of the notebook’s thermal architecture, which consists of two of Acer’s custom-engineered 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fans, five copper heat pipes, a vapor chamber and Acer CoolBoost Technology. By simply 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 maximum cooling and unleashed overclocking.

The HyperDrift keyboard improves ergonomics; with the keyboard closer now, gamers can keep a good distance to the 17-inch screen without overextending hands and provides 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 for easy clicking
