Gaming

Basic games might need more than basic hardware. The PS42 8RC-029ES 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 14 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 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 4 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 PS42 8RC-029ES can handle everything you throw at it. A selection of ports allow you to connect instruments and devices, while the 1.8 GHz takes care of the actual production work.

Book keeping

The 14 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

Can handle a Full-Stack Coding Environment

You'll need a machine that can handle multiple VMs for your various dev environments. The PS42 8RC-029ES sports an Intel Core i7-8550U, (a processor with 4 cores) plus a healthy 16 GB of RAM to power your VMs and dev tools.

Regular Stuff / Everyday Tasks

Spreadsheets, presentations and documents, are relatively undemanding, but the Intel Core i7-8550U processor and 16 GB RAM ensures even image laden files won't leave you watching the 'spinning wheel' on the PS42 8RC-029ES
