The Acer Helios 500 is the BEST Laptop Now for Content Creators - HOT DEAL

This laptop was at $2200 when the video by Linus Tech Tips posted their review.  I'm frankly surprised this is available after Prime Day still and at this price.

Bottom line is this is a desktop class performing computer which will do great with video editing, 3D rendering, office work, CAD, Adobe CC, and even A class gaming just falling shy of the Nvidia 1070 Ti and the Core i9 equivalent.

Note that since this is a gaming laptop with a powerful CPU, it weights almost 9 lbs and has atrocious battery life.  Basically this is a full grown desktop gaming machine shrunk down to a 9 lb laptop.

Good All Around Performance

Right now this is the best bang for the buck for pure raw performance in a laptop form factor.  It excels at number crunching, rendering, graphics creating tasks.  Its not the best at gaming, but it will play everything that I like to play at 1080p performance at 144hz with decent fps.
