Reviews for the Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA707XI

Listen, we rarely see laptops that are this good. The fact that its processor can sustain 4.70 GHz in extreme workload conditions on all cores is absolutely impressive. Also, the cooling does a pretty good job with both the CPU and the GPU. Do you know what is even better – having more than 11 hours worth of battery on your gaming notebook? Yes, you won’t get the maximum performance, and you will need to leave the MUX Switch to its default position, where it prioritizes the iGPU, but it doesn’t matter. Moreover, ASUS TUF Gaming A17 (FA707, 2023)’s IPS panel has QHD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. It has a full sRGB and DCI-P3 color coverage, which is paired with a pretty accurate color representation.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
