The Asus Vivobook S1702QA-BX104W versus the competition

The Asus Vivobook S1702QA-BX104W is currently for sale by ElectroDépôt and it offers an attractive configuration/price ratio for its category where it is one of the most powerful in terms of processor but it meets competitors with a Full HD screen.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook S1702QA-BX104W

It looks sober and elegant with its thin and light design in light silver.

This versatile laptop is cooled with IceCool technology via an IceBlade fan (87 blades), 2 heat pipes, and air vents.

The connectivity integrated in this laptop is good, it consists of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a television or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, one audio port or 3 USBs, including 1 USB 3.2 (USB 2.0/3.0 compatible), ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when a USB 3.0 device is connected.

We appreciate being able to preserve our privacy by sliding the built-in physical cover provided for this purpose in front of the webcam.

It remains to be seen if the chiclet keyboard can be backlit so that we can better distinguish its keys in case of limited ambient light.

The screen adopts standard specifications with its definition of 1600×900 and its 16:9 format suitable for playing videos. Fortunately, it’s anti-reflective, making it less tiring on the eyes over a long period of time than a glossy panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outside).

Performance, autonomy of the Asus Vivobook S1702QA-BX104W

The Asus Vivobook S1702QA-BX104W is a thin and light 17-inch notebook with an efficient and multimedia-oriented processor.

The overall power it provides is capable of appealing to demanding users. Because it is supported by a good amount of 16 GB of RAM, very appreciable in multitasking. And above all a powerful AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne processor.

Creatives will be especially interested in this heart. Because it guarantees faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 as well as Quad/Hexa Core. We are very sorry for the difference in areas that require RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.

However, gamers will go their way, even if thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 graphics module inserted directly into the Octo Core Ryzen 7, you can view photos and videos, but also enjoy light games.

In any case, the storage supports the heart of this light notebook very well, as it is entrusted to an SSD which clearly enhances the responsiveness and fluidity on a day-to-day basis compared to a simple hard drive.

Because in addition to consuming less energy, being more robust and silent, an SSD is much faster than a hard drive.
As a result, the SSD ensures much faster start/stops, processing and application launches, or even faster arrival of online game cards.

Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity according to the standard of hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage drive such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.

As for the autonomy of this computer whose large format is not easily transportable by nature but whose contained weight is appreciable to carry it on your back, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use. In any case, a 17-incher offers the advantage of being particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (at home, for example).
