Yes, this device does well, what it’s intended to do. It brings AAA gaming on a budget. Albeit it’s not able to handle the latest titles at their maximum visual settings, most people will be satisfied by the performance it offers. On the other hand, some things were sacrificed. Usually, the first thing to be compromised is the build quality, but here, we feel this wasn’t the case. Despite the fact that ASUS uses plastic for the majority of this build, the notebook is pretty strong and doesn’t feel cheap. However, the battery life is mediocre. If you get the device with the 48Wh unit, it will last for no more than 6 hours of Web browsing, and a bit over 4 hours of video playback. This figure will be a lot smaller if you multitask or add an intensive workload. ASUS TUF Gaming F17 (FX706)’s 144Hz IPS panel (AUO B173HAN04.9) has a Full HD resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and a good contrast ratio. Thankfully, it doesn’t flicker at any brightness level.
