The best part though is with its speedy performance, that is what is most important for a gaming laptop.

No matter how many hours you continuously play or work on Acer Predator Helios it won’t heat up as compare to other laptops, the cooling system is great. However it could have been better if Acer upgraded the cooling system to dual, but the thermals are still great. I do not regret buying it.

I’m also in love with the keyboard, and how comfortable and fast I work with it.

So, that’s why even with the strange sound when I’m playing aloud is not a bother. I feel I invested my money in a good device.

The sleek design and light weight is good justice to the laptop. With the latest 7th generation i7 processor it can handle and works seamless when playing graphics heavy  games, needless to say, the overall performance is good.

7. ASUS ROG Strix G–SYNC Gaming Notebook

Great gaming laptop but has a few issues

ASUS ROG Strix G –SYNC Gaming Notebook

The G-SYNC gaming computer with GeForce i7 is a great laptop. For one, the G-SYNC is there and it has an outstanding performance.

It is also light and easily portable and cannot compare to other products from ASUS considering their build and weight. It also has a strong build, only that it is lighter.

The issues come in with the heating as it sometimes get alarmingly hot and the cooling system seems to be a little off function.

I would highly recommend it for a gaming fanatic. In that perspective, it is brilliant.

Powerful and the colorful keyboard, PERFECT!

As much as I’m all about gaming and the experience. I must admit I was distracted with all the color lighting on the keyboard. Not the bad kind, but the good kind of distraction.

I also love the idea of choosing the colors myself and customizing them to what I like. That aside, it is a true gaming powerhouse, it is a fast and it runs quite smoothly than I expected.

To make the icing on the cake even sweeter, the laptop is light and very portable. This is exactly what I need in my life.

Not all collaborations work, that is no surprise, but I was in for my own share. I bought the laptop in a haste and did not do much research. So, after buying and home, I was a little scared of what I would find with the laptop.

But, to my utter surprise, I was met with a beautiful and quality build laptop that booted up fast. As if that is not enough, the keyboard is fine and has a comfortable feel.

And it does not overheat, I love that about it.

I finally have a laptop that gives me the real feel of gaming and on top of that, I can prioritize on internet traffic and data stream.

So far so good, no problems with the laptop, just loving all the smartness with the laptop. Awesome tech!
