It is undeniable that the design of the Acer Predator Helios 700 laptop is very interesting, especially the keyboard that has a slide system. Almost all of the videos and reviews on the YouTube technology channel showcase this uniqueness.

The slider system found on this laptop keyboard is manual, must be pulled physically, it cannot be moved through the system or application that is inside the laptop. Even so, it turns out that this slider design has another function.

With the keyboard open (pulled out), the airspace that holds two AeroBlade fans will open. Such a position allows the fan to breathe new strong airflow from the two super fans.

The power of the two AeroBlade fans is already visible from the sound produced, noisy !. Yup! When we activate this extra cooling feature, we will immediately hear the sound from the two fans installed at the top of this body.

When the keyboard is opened (pulled) then at the same time we also open a new feature, which is an extreme cooling system. It is said to be extreme because the installed fan is not an ordinary laptop fan, but is more similar to a PC fan because of its suction and large thrust.

The video review shown by a YouTuber named Dave Lee shows how noisy the sound is caused by these two fans in TURBO mode. Please look at 4:05 to feel the effect of the AeroBlade fan on turbo mode.

Risks that must be borne from the high specifications above are the appearance of a laptop that is thicker than a laptop or notebook in general. This makes sense because, with such high specifications, it requires sufficient space to store all the hardware needed.

The official price offered for the Acer Predator Helios 700 is $ 3,999 for the highest specifications. For 'discounted' specifications you can get it for $ 2,199.
