I’m currently looking to get a laptop because I’m never home due to overnight shifts at work. I’m looking for a 17.3” laptop with a 1tb hdd, 128gb or 256gb ssd, decent screen, and decently priced and at least a 1060. I know the Asus has heat problems and the Acer has a thermal paste problem but I was planning on undervolting and putting new thermal paste on which ever I get. Which is the better laptop for the price and I don’t plan on spending more than either of these cost.

i have the helios 300(the 15inch version ) and i would say its a decent spec laptop for its price.repasted with mx4 and cpu remains a toasty 80-85c max.plus its built in predator sense app can help boost the gpu and fan speed at your command.but the asus will definitely have a better built quality and probably better speakers and screen base on my experience.plus rgb keyboards.
