Reviews for the Asus TUF Gaming F17 FX706HC-HX007W
Source: PC Mag
The Asus TUF Gaming F17's best attribute may be its price tag, but in this inflated PC market that may be enough. The laptop's performance won't blow you away, but it delivers acceptable 1080p gaming as long as you keep your expectations in check. The plastic chassis similarly won't win any awards, but with its large, high-refresh screen, the total package is all that a cash-strapped casual or mainstream gamer might need. There are some better values if you can stretch your budget (the MSI Katana GF66 and several Acer Nitro 5 models come to mind), but the F17 is a very fair big-screen deal, especially if you can grab it at a discount.
