Gaming

Click, shoot, scroll, or type, the DB74 is more than capable of running light games that don’t require high end hardware. And at $1,299.99, this laptop won’t break the bank either.

It's good for academic research

As a student or researcher, the DB74 provides a good balance of portability and performance. With b/g/n/ac WiFi support, you can easily roam between networks in libraries, offices and labs. This laptop gives you the tools you need to research and write outstanding papers.

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 DB74 can handle everything you throw at it. A selection of ports allow you to connect instruments and devices, while the 2.8 GHz takes care of the actual production work.

Book keeping

Capable of running spreadsheets or dedicated accounts software, the DB74 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 i7-7700HQ , (a processor with 4 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

Spreadsheets, presentations and documents, are relatively undemanding, but the Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 16 GB RAM ensures even image laden files won't leave you watching the 'spinning wheel' on the DB74

Surf the web at speed thanks to the DB74’s speedy b/g/n/ac WiFi interface.

A sizeable 1000 GB drive allows you to download and manage hundreds of thousands of emails on the DB74.

Although less powerful than other laptops, the DB74 is more than capable of keeping you connected to Facebook, Twitter and all the other social networks you love.

Suits your occasional mobility

The 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 5.1 lbs weight is enough to get the job done.

Great to use on the go!

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

Combining style and ergonomics, the DB74 is built for hardcore gaming on the move.
