Acer achieved this by making it with the ultralight magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminium alloys. Magnesium-lithium alloy is used for the top and bottom cover while the palm rest area uses the magnesium-aluminium alloy. Acer also made very thin bezels so that the size of the display appear bigger and the laptop weighs lower than the previous models. As compared to the previous 14-inch Swift 5 model, it features a 15.6-inch display with Full HD IPS resolution along with touchscreen features.

This laptop will come with up to 1TB of storage and up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM for fast operation and the Intel Wireless-AC 9560 wifi that offers 2×2 802.11ac wireless Gigabit performance that will enhance sharing, streaming and online gaming.

While on the Helios 300, you will find a gorgeous white aluminium chassis with Gold trim. This makes it look more appealing than the Helios 500 but packs in some lower end features.
