Gaming

Basic games might need more than basic hardware. The ROG Strix GL703GM-DS74 is a good choice for casual gamers, offering enough CPU power, RAM and storage to get the job done – hardcore gamers may need something a little meatier though.

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 17.3 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

You need to pack a lot into this screen, hence a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels pixels, you'll have sufficient visual clarity to decide which video sequence will give the impact you're looking for.

Continuously tweaking video clips are fun but requires a quite a bit of computing power. Which is why the memory size of 16 GB, the multi-core processor and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card all combine to provide a level of performance that matches your needs.

In addition, this laptop can be used night or day thanks to the built in back-lit keyboard.

It also comes with the Memory card reader just in case you need an alternative option to move your creative work from once device to another.

Music and Audio

Developing your own tunes and mixes is important to you, so we've recommended a laptop that has got an advanced audio system on-board with HD sound capabilities.

The presence of a 6 cores core process will help speed up music format conversions or codec-based compression.

Its all about the Beats

When you need crystal clear audio and plenty of grunt for processing and encoding, the ROG Strix GL703GM-DS74 can handle everything you throw at it. A selection of ports allow you to connect instruments and devices, while the 2.2 GHz takes care of the actual production work.

Book keeping

The 17.3 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 Asus '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 GL703GM-DS74 uses a Intel Core i7-8750H 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 GL703GM-DS74 packs a decent Intel Core i7-8750H processor and 16 GB RAM so this is machine that will last.

Surf the web at speed thanks to the ROG Strix GL703GM-DS74’s speedy b/g/n/ac WiFi interface.

Sending and receiving email is a relatively lightweight activity that the ROG Strix GL703GM-DS74 can comfortably handle. It also comes with of total storage so you never have to delete a message or attachment again.

Social networking is relatively lightweight, so the low power 2.2 GHz processor is ideal. With 3 hours battery life, you can stay connected between charges.

Battery life is fairly decent

The ROG Strix GL703GM-DS74 allows you to stay productive even when you need to pop out for a few hours thanks to its portability and 3 hours battery life.

Working in the dark

The lights may be low, but that doesn’t mean you can’t work. The ROG Strix GL703GM-DS74’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

It comes in an unconventional package that stands out from the typical greys and blacks that are common with such devices.

Package that suits a Gamer

It oozes style while offering a combo of form and function that suits the needs of a serious gamer.
