The Asus VivoBook 17 S1704VA-AU339W is aimed at those looking for a relatively thin and light 17-inch laptop for common all-round use.

Powered by a recent Intel Core 7 150U Raptor Lake Refresh hybrid processor with 10 hybrid cores and the Iris Xe graphics module, this versatile laptop delivers very good performance in everyday use. Especially since it also has 16 GB of RAM.

This core is suitable for watching photos and videos, playing modest games, but also for light multimedia processing that takes advantage of multi-core and RAM, such as light photo editing or video conversion.

As a result, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or a dedicated graphics card appropriate if you plan to often perform work that requires a lot of CPU and/or graphics resources.

On the storage side, Asus opts for an SSD that rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being more robust, more energy-efficient, quieter and much faster.

In practice, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, you get a faster arrival on the maps of online games for example or even faster starting/stopping, processing and application launches.

Of course, in case you need extra space, you can rely on an external storage unit. In this case, a USB 3.0/USB-C device is an advantageous option for fast transfers.

Finally, in terms of battery life, you can expect about 7 hours on battery in light use for this computer, which may be of interest to some people looking for a relatively thin and light 17-inch student laptop that doesn’t need a lot of battery life.
