Found in: Gaming Laptops

Built as an economy model, the 17.3" Republic of Gamers Strix Scar Edition GL703GE Notebook from ASUS is designed for gaming, thanks to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card with 4GB of GDDR5 RAM, a Full HD 1920 x 1080 display, a 120 Hz refresh rate, a response time of 5 ms (GtG), wide viewing angles, and 94% NTSC color gamut coverage. The core of this system is driven by a 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7-8750H processor, which can be overclocked up to 4.1 GHz, plus 16GB of 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM. Storage is provided by a 128GB NVMe PCIe SSD and a 1TB Seagate FireCuda Solid-State Hybrid Drive (SSHD) with 8GB of cache. The GL703GE has also been built with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a 4-zone RGB keyboard. The installed operating systems are Windows 10 Home (64-bit) and PureOS. Included is an AC adapter and protection is provided by a limited 1-year warranty and one year of accidental damage protection (ADP).

General Features

120 Hz Display
With a 120 Hz refresh rate, which helps to eliminate stuttering and jitters, you'll be able to enjoy smooth gameplay and react instantly to your game. The display also supports wide viewing angles and 94% NTSC gamut coverage.

PureOS

A Private, Secure, and Free OS
PureOS comes with the free privacy and security software and apps for privacy right out of the box, including the Tor browser, the Duck Duck Go search engine, EFF Privacy Badger, and HTTPS: Everywhere bundled into their official web browser, PureBrowser.
Freedom
PureOS is entirely free software, meaning that you can freely use it for any purpose, study its source code, share it, and even modify it.
GNOME 3 & Wayland
With GNOME 3 and Wayland, enjoy fluid high-framerate videos, well-rendered animations, and better power management.

Windows 10

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 Republic of Gamers Strix reviews

    17.3" Republic of Gamers Strix Scar Edition GL703GE Notebook is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for your dollar The unboxing experience on this laptop makes it feel like you're getting a premium product. But the price is anything but premium. The price is comparable to what I'd pay for a low end gaming desktop and performs much better. The screen and graphics are beautiful and color representation is incredible for the price. I got this machine for my daughter as she needed something that would last her and that she could upgrade. With an M.2 and SATA port, USB Type C, USB 3.1, as well as a free RAM slot above the included 16GB or RAM, I expect this machine to be future proof for a while.
