Gaming

A resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, means rich graphics to shoot Zombies or cross the galaxy in detail

Your 's Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor means whilst your thumbs may struggle with Call of Duty or Doom your will not. 

The 16 GB RAM combines nicely with the GPU on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 which hits a 3DMark benchmark score of 6036.5 , and the 4 cores CPU hit a Passmark benchmark of 8937

You can have the dark arcade experience without tapping blindly thanks to the built in back-lit keyboard. 

It's good for academic research

As a student or researcher in the social or physical sciences, this device provides a good balance of portability (with it's 15.6 inches screen size) and performance so that you're free to roam the labs or libraries with a machine that can competently multi-task your data crunching, "multi-tabbed browsing" and the production of academic content.

Videos for fun

Whether you’re vlogging on YouTube, or putting together high-quality family videos, the ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 can meet your needs.

And when you’ve finished editing, the on-board Memory Card Reader makes it simple to transfer and share your video content with others

Music and Audio

Making your first steps in music editing? The ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 has what it takes to deliver your audio craft.

Its all about the Beats

With its wide selection of ports the ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 sits at the heart of your music production workflow. And with a total storage capacity of 1256 GB hard drive, you’ve got plenty of space to store work in progress

Book keeping

The 15.6 inches screen gives you enough screen-space to wade through columns and rows

Excel, Quicken etc, don't need much power so this option won't up the requirements on processor. 

Your 's 16 GB RAM will ensure large sheets and accounts wont undermine performance

The numeric keypad keyboard really takes the strain out when entering data.

Can handle a Full-Stack Coding Environment

Emulating a full-blown virtual server environment requires plenty of grunt. The ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 uses a Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU and 16 GB RAM to power multiple VMs and your dev tools simultaneously.

Regular Stuff / Everyday Tasks

Modern productivity apps like Office 365 and Google G Suite are relatively lightweight – but it never hurts to have some power under the hood. The ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 packs a decent Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 16 GB RAM so this is machine that will last.

The ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 makes surfing the web easy thanks to a reasonable hardware specification and fast, reliable b/g/n/ac WiFi connectivity.

Sending and receiving email is a relatively lightweight activity that the ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 can comfortably handle. It also comes with 1000 GB of total storage so you never have to delete a message or attachment again.

Facebook, twitter etc require little processing power or screen specification so the ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 will do just fine.

Suits your occasional mobility

Not the smallest laptop, but this is a good choice for when you don't want a full-size PC. The ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 works just as well on your lap or a desk.

Great to use on the go!

The ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 is a great choice for when you need a good value, reliable laptop that won't be carried around too often. It’s not the smallest or lightest, however the 2.3 kg weight is enough to get the job done.

Working in the dark

The lights may be low, but that doesn’t mean you can’t work. The ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 ’s built-in 1 allows you to type accurately – even in the dark

Numeric Key Pad

Working with numbers is important to you, so we've made sure this laptop comes a full featured keyboard. 

Very stylized look

Fed up with the black and grey machines that dominate the laptop market? The bold colours and exciting design of the 1 offer a very funky alternative.

Package that suits a Gamer

Not just a pretty face, the ROG Strix GL503VD-DB74 uses ergonomic design to give you a gaming advantage.
