Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook 17 S1702ZA-BX097W
With its relatively thin and light silver Icelight Silver design, this versatile Ultrabook sports an elegant and discreet look.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for wireless remote connections and communications, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect to it USB 3.0 devices.
The screen is anti-reflective which makes it more readable than a shiny slab in bright environments (eg outside) and less tiring for the eyes over a long period. In addition, it reproduces colors more faithfully than average, without however achieving the fidelity provided by high-end IPS or OLED panels. For the rest, the screen adopts classic specifications at this price level namely a 16/9th format suitable for playing videos as well as a definition of 1600×900 lower than the more accurate Full HD.
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook 17 S1702ZA-BX097W
The Asus VivoBook 17 S1702ZA-BX097W is a relatively thin and lightweight large-format laptop designed for versatile everyday mobile use.
Thanks to its low-power Intel Alder Lake Core i3-1215U processor with 6 hybrid cores and 8 GB of RAM, it delivers good performance in everyday use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation.
Particularly suitable for multi-core software, the Core i3-1215U shows its limits under CPU-intensive applications.
In any case, the Core i3-1215U offers the advantage of integrating directly into it the Intel UHD G4, a graphics solution thanks to which you can watch photos and videos but also play light titles while this Ultrabook is devoid of a dedicated graphics card.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard disk but also more robust, less energy consuming and silent.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives, enough to house a lot of files and applications. In any case, if this proves to be too fair, you can always use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to obtain fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and lightness, bet on about 7 hours of operation on battery in light use.
