The Amazon Spring Sale ends at midnight tonight in the UK, but there are still some great last-minute deals to pick up before discounts end. Today we've spotted a huge discount on an RTX 3070 Ti-powered gaming laptop that has had £500 slashed off of its asking price.
Originally retailing for £1,899 the Acer Predator Helios 300 is now only £1,399. Whilst you are able to get some of the best gaming laptops with RTX 3070 graphics cards for less, they usually don't come with a QHD screen but rather an FHD screen with a lower 1080p resolution. This model of the Predator Helios 300 also comes with the latest DDR5 memory standard which helps to improve its performance.
Acer Predator Helios 300 RTX 3070 Ti (Model-PH315-55): now £1,399 at Amazon (was £1,899)
With a powerful RTX 3070 Ti GPU and 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700H processor, the Acer Predator Helios 300 has all the components needed to power through the most demanding games. This laptop also sports a 15.6-inch QHD screen with a 165Hz refresh rate, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and 1TB of storage for your games and applications.
We had a chance to review the Acer Predator Helios 300 (PH315-55) and put the gaming laptop through its paces in our suite of benchmark tests. We found the QHD display particularly impressive, with a great colour gamut that covered 112.1% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut and 158% of the sRGB colour gamut. This was on top of the superb build quality of the laptop.
There were a few negatives however and these primarily revolved around the quality of the 1080p webcam and the overall volume level that the speakers could achieve. But the combination of price and performance made this laptop a pick to consider when compared to similar products from other manufacturers.
