The ASUS Vivobook 17 is a budget-friendly laptop with a large 17.3-inch IPS display, suitable for general use with decent performance thanks to its Intel i3 processor and 8GB of RAM. It's not the best choice for heavy tasks like 3D rendering or intensive engineering simulations due to its integrated graphics. The Vivobook's substantial screen size and full-size keyboard with a number pad enhance productivity and multimedia consumption, but its size and weight may limit portability. While it has a relatively modest battery life, it's equipped with various ports, including USB-C, and runs on Windows 11 Home. If general web browsing, office work, and media consumption are your main activities and you appreciate a larger display, it's a solid choice. However, if you require long battery life, plan to carry your laptop frequently, or need high performance for specialized tasks, you may want to consider other options. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Operating Noise:
4.9
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
Portability:
4.1
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
Battery Life:
4.0
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
General Use:
3.7
The ASUS Vivobook 17 has a basic CPU and a moderate amount of RAM, which may suffice for routine tasks but could struggle with more demanding applications, while its large screen offers good visuals but reduces portability due to its size and weight. Additionally, its battery life is on the lower side, impacting its usability on the go.
Build Quality:
3.5
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Engineering & Design:
3.4
The ASUS Vivobook 17 has a mid-range CPU and integrated GPU which are adequate for basic engineering and design tasks, but may struggle with more demanding software. Its 17.3-inch IPS screen offers large workspace and decent color accuracy, but may not be as portable or vibrant as other options designed specifically for engineering and design professionals.
General Use Screen Quality:
3.3
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Gaming, 3D & AI:
3.2
The ASUS Vivobook 17 has an integrated Intel i3-1220P UHD Graphics chip which offers only basic performance for gaming and 3D applications, and its screen supports a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz, which is adequate for casual gaming but lacks the smoothness preferred for more competitive or visually intensive gaming experiences.
Keyboard Quality:
3.0
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.

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."
