    Great review, but you left out an important item. Is the panel a 60hz or 144hz like mentioned on Amazon? Thanks

          but why the other website did not show it is a 144hz panel

            There are actually two screen options for this laptop, one is 60 Hz and another 144 Hz.

    Are there supposed to be new options to compete with this(same price range or lower) releasing next month? I’m still not sure if I should really aim for 144hz. I’m mainly interested in playing Fortnite as far as gaming goes right now so the better refresh rate would be appreciated. However, I haven’t even experienced 60hz so I’m thinking i should be fine with something cheaper/better build/gaming looks.

      Also need to mention that I’m a student who will value lightweight and portability as well. Adding on to why I want less gaming looks too

      The Helios 300 has been one of the most affordable 1060 laptops since launch, so I'd say probably not. Have a look at what Dell and Lenovo have to offer.

        This have a 144hz panel, and it isn't anything.

      I'm not in India, I cannot do that for you. Use the search function on amazon and look for the configuration you want…

    Do you have the calibrated color profile for the 144hz screen like you did the 60hz panel? If so could you post it as well? Thanks.
