Updated January 10, 2024·

The ASUS Vivobook 14 offers slightly better performance and portability due to its smaller screen size and lower weight, compared to the ASUS Vivobook 17 that has a larger screen and heavier build, which might be more comfortable for workloads that benefit from a larger display, but it also means reduced battery life and less convenience when moving around. Both laptops are within the budget range, with the Vivobook 17 being slightly less expensive, but the Vivobook 14 has a better processor which is more suitable for demanding tasks, although neither are ideal for intensive gaming or engineering programs. The Vivobook 17 also includes a number pad, which the 14 does not, an advantage if you frequently work with numbers. Give Feedback

Marvin Gollor | May 2022
"The ASUS Vivobook 17 is an affordable 17-inch laptop with passive cooling. On one hand, you get a really quiet and cool work device with a good system performance, many connections, good maintenance options, speakers acceptable for multimedia enjoyment, and a sharp and clear matte FHD IPS display with the Asus VivoBook 17 (F712JA). On the other hand, the USB-C port lacks Power Delivery and DisplayPort, and the display, a higher brightness and better color space coverage."
