NB. Since the review in PC Pro we have managed to squeeze a slightly larger 14" display into the same compact chassis of the Helios 3. The Helios 4 has the exact same spec, and the same glorious gamut-accurate IPS display technology, just a smaller bezel and even more screen real estate.
Now armed with 8th generation Intel Coffee Lake technology, our fantastic Helios 4 Ultrabook is a powerful yet svelte laptop computer. We've greatly improved the touchpad and build quality compared to the original model for a more responsive and pleasurable experience with Windows 10. Despite an exceptionally slim and lightweight footprint, the Helios 4 Ultrabook delivers all of the power you expect from a Chillblast PC.
The Intel Core i7 8565U Quad Core CPU operates between 1.8 and 4GHz for the utlimate multimedia experience, whilst a generous 16GB allocation of DDR4 RAM and dedicated SSD storage gives astonishing responsiveness. The Helios 3 is incredibly portable with its aluminium unibody design weighing just 1.4kg and measuring 18mm at its thickest point. You have genuine all-day capabilities thanks to a battery life of up to 7.5 hours. In terms of connectivity the Helios is fully equipped with contemporary connections. It has built-in 802.11AC wireless, two USB 3.1 ports, 1 x USB 3.0 Type C port, HDMI, mini DisplayPort, and two headphone jacks. It also has a webcam built in and a card reader. All of this is provided in a chassis that provides exceptional portability. The Helios measures just 329.8 (W) x 225 (D) x 18.8(H) mm and weighs 1.3kg including the battery.
