Gaming

Basic games might need more than basic hardware. The Rog Strix 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 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.

Music and Audio

The Rog Strix 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 1000 GB. Also, the Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor gives sufficient power for converting your work into various music file formats.

Its all about the Beats

When you need crystal clear audio and plenty of grunt for processing and encoding, the Rog Strix 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

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 uses a Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU and 16 GB RAM to power multiple VMs and your dev tools simultaneously.

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 Rog Strix

The Rog Strix 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 can comfortably handle. It also comes with 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 will do just fine.

Battery life is fairly decent

With its 5 hours battery life, the Rog Strix offers a good amount of freedom while moving from place to place around the house.

For anyone who works on the road, or outside the office, portability is everything. With a battery life of 5 hours, the Rog Strix can go the distance for you while working on the move.

Lightweight and compact, the Rog Strix boasts 5 hours battery life to keep you going while on short trips like the daily commute on the train or subway.

The 5 hours battery life in the Rog Strix can keep you going while moving from one meeting space to another.

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 works just as well on your lap or a desk.

Great to use on the go!

The Rog Strix 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 5.5 lbs weight is enough to get the job done.

Working in the dark

This laptop can be used night or day thanks to the built in back-lit keyboard.

Numeric Key Pad

When you spend all day typing, the quality of keyboard makes a big difference. The Rog Strix includes a numeric keypad to simplify the process of entering numbers into spreadsheets. And with a backlit keyboard, you can keep working long after the sun goes down too.

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.
