Hello fellow slick dealers, Amazon has Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop with Intel i7-7700HQ, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, GeForce GTX 1060-6GB & 15.6" Full HD IPS for $899 as part of Prime Day sales. Althogh this same laptop was available at lower price ($849) during the last Black Friday sales. This ($899) is the lowest I've seen for this laptop(standalone) since then. This is my first time posting deal here, so be nice to me, point out any mistakes.

I bought this last time it was on sale for $820 at newegg (REFURB)

Meh, is all I have to say. Feels cheap. The hinge broke the first time it slid down 1.5 feet from my couch. Super terrible backlight bleeding on an already shockingly low-brightness poor color rendition LCD. Awkwardly shaped. The touchpad is older, cheaper tech and is also terrible. Only 1 usb 3.0 port (this is really a terrible design). The HDMI output from this laptop actually lags when plugged into an external source, making it useless to dock for gaming purposes.

The only thing good I have to say about it is that it was cheap and it performs pretty well if you are in need of a gaming-on-the-go machine.

I would not buy this if given a second chance

I've been thinking of picking up this laptop for Prime Day
https://www.amazon.com/FX503VD-Po...op?ie=UTF8

How does it compare to this Helios?

I looked at this too, it is bit cheaper and has 1 TB HDD over Helios, however two big drawbacks compared to helios are: 8 GB here Vs 16 GB RAM for Helios and HDMI 1.4 port here Vs. 2.0 port for Helios. couple of smaller differences (for me personally) are: Helios is 6 GB 1060 graphics, for this one it is 4 GB 1050, this can be a big difference or no big deal at all depending upon what you are trying to do...

Amazon wont give you a good gaming laptop offer on prime day cause not much competition now , this is ok , not great , but on black Friday we have a better chance of finding more slick deals, am looking for a good gaming laptop to replace my aging rig .

Actually my brother has this same laptop and it does get hot if he leaves the fans on auto. Turn the fans on max with cool boost enabled and the thermals aren't bad at all.
