Chassis, Connectivity, Display of Asus VivoBook 17 R702UB-BX274T
With its silver finish, it sports an elegant design.
Its connectivity is good, consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, a convenient HDMI video output to connect easily to a TV for example, Wi-Fi wireless modules n ( and not Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 4.0 for remote connections and communications, audio and Ethernet ports or even USB 2.0 all USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 compatible, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
The screen is distinguished by its antireflection treatment making it less tiring for the eyes for a long period of time than a glossy and more legible tile in a bright environment. For the rest, it adopts classic specifications: definition of 1600×900 and 16 / 9th format suitable for playing videos.
Performance, autonomy of Asus VivoBook 17 R702UB-BX274T
The Asus R702UB-BX060T is a 17-inch notebook designed for versatile everyday use.
It stands out for its hybrid storage. In practice, we take advantage of a large capacity thanks to the hard drive of 1000 GB as well as a great reactivity thanks to the SSD. The latter brings a better fluidity than a hard disk as well as starts / stops and launches applications much faster. While the SSD is intended to host the main software in addition to the system, the rest is placed on the hard drive.
In addition, this notebook has a good amount of RAM 6 GB above average and very useful in multitasking. It does well with the processor, a recent model Kaby Lake Refresh Pentium Dual Core 4417U low consumption. Keep in mind that it shows its limits under CPU intensive software.
This computer is suitable for everyday use such as surfing the Internet and office automation. One can also consider playing with occasional if one is ready for concessions and that one is satisfied with titles not demanding in resources. It is indeed equipped with the GeForce MX110 dedicated card.
Positioned on the entry level, the GeForce MX110 is activated / deactivated automatically and in real time by embedded NVIDIA Optimus technology, according to the needs.
Optimus gives maximum priority to the Intel HD 610 integrated in the Pentium 4417U despite its very modest performance because it is energy efficient and therefore promotes autonomy. The more powerful and powerful GeForce MX110 is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics processing that is too heavy for the Intel HD 610. These two solutions obviously allow you to watch photos and videos.
As for autonomy, plan about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
