During the Annual Acer Day on 3rd of August, Acer Malaysia launched three special models that on merit are steps further than the competitors. They announced the Predator Helios 300 Special Edition (an upgrade from the original 300), Acer Swift 7 and it’s Black Edition Switch 7 (not related to the Nintendo Switch),which features the world’s fanless 2-in-1 laptop with a very powerful and discrete graphics card.

So we start with Predator Helios 300 Special Edition,which boasts an all-white aluminum chassis with a gold trim and is equiped with a 8th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX1060 (that’s overclockable) and 6GB of DDR5 VRAM for good measure. It also comes with a 256GB PCIe SSD and a 1TB HDD. This means that it is VR-Ready and thanks to it’s upgraded 144Hz refresh rate on it’s 15.6 inch Full HD IPS Display, gaming would be incredible on it, but no need to worry about heating too as the Helios will the Acer’s proprietary AeroBlade 3D fans, making it run at room temperature even with long gaming sessions.

There are also the 2-in-1 laptops, the thin Swift 7 and the more powerful Switch 7 Black Edition. The Swift boast an impressive 8GB of LPDDR3 Ram and a 256GB PCIe SSD and is by far the thinnest 4G LTE Laptop in the world, at 8.98mm, Couple it with the protective Gorlila Glass, it’s 14-Inch full HD Display is incredible and can be viewed from either the far left or right thanks to it’s 170 degrees viewing angle.

On the other hand, The Switch 7 Black Edition is the first fanless 2-in-1 laptop as they’re using a Acer’s Dual LiquidLoop cooling technology, making it silent as well while boasting a 8th Gen Intel Core i7 and an Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics processor, perfect for intense task like drawing,editing and streaming. It also comes with a 13.5-inch QHD IPS display for the best quality of visual experience.

The pricing side of things sees the Helios 300 SE costing around RM6,199 and includes matching White Predator gaming backpack,earphones, gaming mouse and mousepad. The Swift 7 also cost around RM 6,399 but has a protective sleeve, a USB Type C to HDMI and USB Type A adapter to boot, and the same can’t be said to the Switch 7 Black Edition which cost at RM6,999 but without any additional items but it’s probably worth the price of admission of owning a top-range 2-in-1 laptop.
