One of the most notable features of the Predator Helios 700 is its signature HyperDrift keyboard. The unique keyboard can be slid out to reveal Dual 4th Gen Aeroblade 3D Fans. The fans ensure optimal cooling with increased airflow up to 18.9% as well as minimizing noise through the 59 specially designed ultra-thin (0.1mm) bionic metal blades.

The HyperDrift keyboard improves ergonomics as the keyboard is closer to the gamer’s body with the touchpad acting as palm rest when it is slid out. In addition to that, the keyboard features pre-key RGB lighting, anti-ghosting and MagForce WASD keys with Linear Switch technology. The MagForce keys give gamers greater precision control over in-game mechanics similar to a gamepad’s analogue stick.

The gaming laptop allows gamers to easily overclock the laptop by pressing the Turbo key and/or by sliding out the HyperDrift keyboard. The laptop comes with four performance modes: Normal and Fast in docked keyboard mode; Boosted and Extreme in undocked keyboard mode.

The 17.3-inch 144Hz IPS display laptop supports G-sync, dedicated hotkeys, Turbo key and PredatorSense key. Additionally, PredatorSense for mobile allows gamers to monitor or overclock from their phone. In term of connectivity, the laptop features Killer Wi-Fi 6 and Killer Ethernet E3000.
