The ASUS VivoBook 17 is a laptop capable of performing daily productivity tasks and some light gaming. Its 17.3-inch FHD display combined with a loudspeaker system will fit well in your workflow and can offer a great viewing experience as well. However, the laptop's underutilized keypad real estate and weight can be a problem for some users. Further, if you're willing to settle for a smaller screen, you can also find a similarly specced laptop at a more affordable price.

The VivoBook 17 is quite a compelling choice for casual users, college-going students, or even professionals who don’t mind the extra weight, but would like to make use of the expansive screen real estate. The large size of the laptop could deter potential buyers who value portability over anything else, and it isn’t meant for gamers either. That said, it should suffice if your work involves moderate day-to-day tasks. If these are the criteria for your purchase, then the VivoBook 17 should make for a reasonable option worth considering.
