The words “cost-cutting” are written all over this laptop. From the plastic body panels, that are flimsy but light, to the 900p TN display, and the lack of 2.5-inch SATA drive mounting accessories inside the box. And buying a laptop in this price bracket shouldn’t always mean that you have to make every sacrifice out there. Take the Lenovo IdeaPad 3 (17″, 2021) for example. Nevertheless, we have to mention the tiny 32Wh battery pack, which did nothing but heroics here to last through 7 hours of Web browsing before running out of juice. Yet again, playing HD videos shows a more realistic picture, as the battery lasted for about 5 hours during this stunt. ASUS VivoBook 17 X712’s display in the configuration we tested has a TN panel (BOE NT173WDM-N24 (BOE091A)) with a rather low resolution for the large screen size. The good things about it start with the lack of PWM for brightness adjustment and end with the fast pixel response times. Unfortunately, its viewing angles are very narrow, the contrast ratio is low, and the color coverage is quite limited.
