    "When my friend told me to check out the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-51-787B gaming laptop, my first response was "gaming laptop ?". Then I checked out the internals and I couldn't believe what I found. This laptop can play all the games these days with plenty of power to spare.

    "The Asus ROG is a great gaming laptop for the price. With 16GB of Ram and an I7 Intel processor, you have the ability to power any game you choose to play. USB ports are ample enough for any mod you might want to ad. Since you are running Intel, it will stay cooler than an AMD chip, plus Asus has added a thermal module to help keep it cool. Great buy for the price! "

    "My kid was driving me crazy constantly begging for a gamers computer and the wife was putting me on a guilt trip for being cheap. I wasn't willing to blow two or three grand on something so stupid. But I was even less willing to blow a grand on junk. So I did some research and found this computer that fit the bill for her gaming "needs", my wife's neuroticism, and my cash flow reality. We're all happy."

    "This laptop is comparable to the main gaming laptop in the market, "Alienware". I however was not comfortable paying that much for it since I felt it was not on the same level as an "Alienware" product. If you don't mind spending excessive money for a mediocre laptop, try this one out."

The only drawback it that is is not built to take upgrades, so with a few exceptions, what you see is what you get. Good for most unless they are at the highest level of gaming."
