NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10-Series Graphics Cards
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 10-series graphics cards can deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Not only are they powerful, they can deliver similar performance to their desktop counterparts with a slight performance difference. This changes mobile gaming, allowing you to max out your game's visuals settings so you can enjoy it at its best.
DDR4 RAM
DDR4 memory runs at higher speeds to deliver faster performance compared to its predecessor DDR3. With it, your system will achieve better performance overall.
RGB Aura Keyboard
The Strix GL503VD is equipped with customizable RGB lighting so you can adjust it as you see fit.
ROG Gaming Center
ROG Gaming Center gives you access to multiple features such as system information, macros, audio settings, and more.

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    ASUS GL503VD-DB74 reviews

    15.6" Republic of Gamers Strix GL503VD Gaming Notebook is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gaming Laptop I own this laptop and got it earlier this year to run all my games. I compared it with my other laptop which has Intel Graphics and a I5 processor and my games on ultra with the Nvidia GTX 1050 Graphics the games are stunning. I can see things I did not before. It is heavy and has a relatively short battery life running on the GTX graphics but these gaming laptops are made to be plugged in. It has a very nice back-lit keyboard that you can customize with colors and brightness, a user controlled fan to keep things cool, Windows 10 which is nice now. You can select user intensive programs to run on the graphics card such as converting video or ripping DVD's and that's a nice touch. The screen is quite pleasant to look at running your games on ultra and they run smooth in 60FPS or more per second. My YouTube gaming videos can out perfect. This gaming laptop comes highly recommended for the money.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst �laptop ever I bought this laptop for my son last August, 2017. Everything worked well until November. We sent the laptop for repair as it was still under warranty. It is now FEBRUARY 2018 . Customer service said it was under repair. They said parts were ordered for the laptop but failed during testing. Same excuse every time I called them. Please do not but ASUS laptops. Repairs take forever. I am lucky if they fix it this year. Worst decision ever made!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product It has a quick start up. It was simple to set up. Has a Game Center button for easy control of game settings. Keyboard backlites are configurable to your desired colors in 3 zones. I have played some games and had no problems with overheating. Happy so far.
