    If I was to sell it today after using it for two years, given the good condition, for how much could I sell it nowadays? (IE/UK)

    I saw this thing and the Nitro 5 at $905 on Amazon (sale). Both of them were the i7-8750h, gtx 1050ti models with 256 gig ssd's.

    I got the Nitro 5 one day before the predator dropped down to 900 dollars too! I just decided to keep the Nitro 5 then. I'm loving it so far. A CPU undervolt helped a lot with the thermals.

    I liked this laptop cause of of the price♾♾>$҆γ it wasn't the most cheap thing I could have got but ill tell you it was the bang for your bucks with a 144 hz screen. it loads my games insanely fast. I rarely experience lag or slow speed. The material is made from decent metal and decent plastic. I like the look of the red and black theme. I reckoned this gaming laptop since it was the best pc I have ever owned period.

    hey dave lee, hope you are doing good in this pandemic. I saw your review on this helios 300 and bought my laptop and it's almost 3 years since I bought it, I'm planning for an SSD and ram upgrade of my laptop right now, and I need a suggestion from you, whether, can I upgrade this system's SSD if so how to install it? I would love to hear from you on this issue.

    Gtx 1060 is not good anymore.
    In red dead redemption 2, it will only give 55fps on a 144hz which sucks besides 1060 6gb only need 120hz.

  16. Đức Duy

    Can the HDMI port on this laptop output 4k video games on television?

  17. VipperStream

    I have a predator helios 300 like yours, but i don't know how to switch colors at keyboard. I know only red

  18. Jack Mitchell

    Great review! ive got the predator helios 300 PH315 and it has the 1050 Ti
    Recently its started showing graphics driver not supported errors on launch in newer games (red dead 2, DOOM eternal). PCGameBenchMark says i should be able to play these games, any tips?

    So I wanted to check a review of my laptop which is here but the ad was “How long does your sex last?” Nearly clicked off

  21. ReaperBM

    I’m using my Helios 300 for about 1,5 year now and trust me, this is one of the best gaming laptops of them all at that price. The only thing that sucks in this laptop (and probably on most of the gaming laptops) is temperature… But obviously u can buy some cooling mats to help your laptop just a little bit but you’ll still feel some heat on your fingers while playing. (Sometimes u can even use your laptop as a stove and make some good meal, it mostly depends on the owner and how u treat your laptop)

    "Cheap" he said… "a little over a grand" he said… $1,699 dollars might be more than a little…

  23. Ravi Peiris

    Watching this in July of 2021, I truly appreciate the build quality (& pricing) of the Helios 300. Still, I have to think that in 2017 (i.e. when this video was made), Lenovo also came out with gaming series of notebooks (i.e. Legion series) which probably helped drive down the prices of gaming notebooks from Acer, Dell, Asus, etc.

  25. Addy Naruto
