ASUS VivoBook Pro 17 (N705UD) review – carries the VivoBook Pro name but it’s somehow different… in a good way
Source: Laptop Media English
Even though the 17-inch VivoBook Pro and the 15-inch one differ in many ways, there’s one thing in common – they are both well-balanced multimedia notebooks. The VivoBook Pro 17 quickly became one of our favorite mid-range 17-inch notebooks currently on the market. It has good build quality with minor design flaws and exceptionally portable chassis – thinner and lighter than the competition. Input devices are also pretty solid and should serve you fine on the go.
