I wanted to comment on this because I also purchased an Acer Predator Helios only to find that the speaker came defective. It was my first foray into Windows laptops since 2011. After agonizing about it I returned it and landed on an HP Envy with an i7 and RTX 2060 Max-Q and 16 GB of RAM. The 4k AMOLED is literally the best monitor I've ever used in terms of color accuracy.

It's got enough processing power to churn through a pretty dense 4k ProRes HQ timeline, better than the spec'd out 2018 MBP I had from work. All for $1,500.
