Chassis, connections, screen of the Asus VivoBook 17 N3704VA-AU111W

Certified to the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810H, this versatile laptop has an elegant and discreet look with its thin and light Transparent Silver aluminum design.

This multimedia-oriented Ultrabook integrates connectivity with Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 5 ac USB-C wireless modules, practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, audio port, 1 USB-C as well as 3 USB including 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when USB 3.0 devices are connected.
It is regrettable not to be dealing with more recent and efficient 6-axis Wi-Fi given the positioning of this laptop PC.

Those who wish to authenticate biometrically can use the fingerprint reader operated by Windows Hello technology.

In a dimly lit environment, you can activate the backlighting of the chiclet keyboard to better discern its keys.

Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. But the colorimetry here is classic, lower than that of high-end IPS panels.
Thanks to its Full HD definition and its 16:9 format, the screen is also suitable for videos while its anti-reflective treatment ensures better visibility in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors) than a glossy panel while being more relaxing for the eyes with prolonged use.

Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook 17 N3704VA-AU111W

The Asus VivoBook 17 N3704VA-AU111W is aimed at those looking for a versatile 17-inch multimedia-oriented laptop with a powerful processor.

It offers a large storage capacity of 1000 GB thanks to its SSD on which you can install and store a large number of software and files as a personal production.

While it rivals hard drives in terms of capacity, SSD offers several advantages: greater shock resistance, lower energy consumption, silent operation and even greater speed.

Responsiveness and fluidity are therefore much better with an SSD than with a hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, starts/stops, processing and software launches are therefore faster and you can access online game cards more quickly.

Be careful though, this laptop is not aimed at demanding gamers but at those who are content with light to modest games, while this laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card.
And this is thanks to the benefits of the Iris Xe graphics solution inserted in the processor, thanks to which we can also watch HD photos and videos.

The Iris Xe takes place in the Intel Raptor Lake Core i9-13900H processor with 14 hybrid cores. The Core i9 is associated with 16 GB of RAM to deliver good general power capable of satisfying demanding users.

Creators will be particularly interested in this computer since this core deploys its full potential under software that consumes CPU and RAM resources using multi-core and RAM. So in photo editing or video editing for example, we obtain multimedia processing much faster than with a classic Quad/Hexa Core and 8 GB DDR4/5.

As for autonomy, expect around 5 hours of battery life in light use for this versatile laptop equipped with a powerful processor which should be expected to heat up and make itself heard in the event of heavy use (e.g. processing).

If a 17 inch is clearly not the most nomadic by nature, the thinness and light weight of this PC make it easier to transport.
We can also associate it with a ventilated support to contain its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
