Gaming

Click, shoot, scroll, or type, the GS73 8RD-006XES is more than capable of running light games that don’t require high end hardware. And at £1,357.08, this laptop won’t break the bank either.

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 1050 Ti 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

The GS73 8RD-006XES provides a great playground to create homemade tracks, mixes and audio effects. It offers ample storage for your music files with a total capacity of 1256 GB. Also, the Intel Core i7-8750H processor gives sufficient power for converting your work into various music file formats.

Its all about the Beats

With its wide selection of ports the GS73 8RD-006XES 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

Capable of running spreadsheets or dedicated accounts software, the GS73 8RD-006XES is perfect for keeping finances in check. And with a 1 you’ll find it even easier to enter and update figures.

Can handle a Full-Stack Coding Environment

You'll need a machine that can handle multiple VMs for your various Dev environments, which is why we've picked something for you that's got an Intel Core i7-8750H, (a processor with 6 cores) plus a healthy RAM size of 16 GB.

Also, its 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution provides adequate screen estate to view multiple window or more of your IDE while you work.

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 GS73 8RD-006XES packs a decent Intel Core i7-8750H processor and 16 GB RAM so this is machine that will last.

The GS73 8RD-006XES makes surfing the web easy thanks to a reasonable hardware specification and fast, reliable b/g/n/ac WiFi connectivity.

Email demands very little from a laptop. We've taken this into account.

Facebook, twitter etc require little processing power or screen specification so the GS73 8RD-006XES will do just fine.

Battery life is fairly decent

Lightweight and compact, the GS73 8RD-006XES boasts 3.5 hours battery life to keep you going while on short trips like the daily commute on the train or subway.

Suits your occasional mobility

As you'll be needing to move about now and then, it's 2.43 kg weight should suit your needs just fine.

Great to use on the go!

Not the smallest laptop, but this is a good choice for when you don't want a full-size PC. The GS73 8RD-006XES works just as well on your lap or a desk.

Working in the dark

The light may be low, but the GS73 8RD-006XES allows you to work or play around the clock. Make every keystroke count thanks to the 1.

Numeric Key Pad

The quality of keyboard is crucial to data entry, so the GS73 8RD-006XES includes a numeric keypad to make your life easier.

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

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