Acer Predator Introduction

Acer introduced an unique gaming notebook again. After launching the Predator Triton 900 with its rotating screen, now Acer unveils the Predator Helios 700 which carries the slider keyboard mechanism.

Acer dubbed their unique slider keyboard as “Hyperdrift Keyboard”. By default, the keyboard and its touchpad area are where you’d normally expect to see them in a gaming laptop – toward the back, near the speakers. However, when you slide the keyboard forward, the touchpad essentially converts into a full, desktop keyboard-like wrist rest.

Acer Predator Slider Mechanism

The slider mechanism isn’t just there for no reason. Under the keyboard, there are two cooling fans which will be visible after you slide-down the keyboard.

“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 glass panel also provides a view of the notebook’s heat pipes.” as described by Acer.

Those cooling features will likely be particularly useful for those who want to take advantage of the Helios 700’s built-in, one-button Turbo overclocking hotkey.

Cooling aside, Acer also says the HyperDrift keyboard will pave the way for improved ergonomics because it allows users to keep a “good distance” from the Helios 700’s screen without “over extending” their hands.

The Predator Helios 700 has a 17″ 1080P 144Hz IPS display, up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, up to an Intel Core i9 processor, and your choice of either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 or 2070. It’s only 41,7mm thick and weighted 4,4kg.

The Helios 700 predator is scheduled to go on sale in the United States and Canada around July for 2,699 US dollars.
