Reviews for the Asus Vivobook 17 F1704
Source: Laptop Media
For that kind of price tag, the ASUS Vivobook 17 F1704 (X1704) is an honest offer. At least for us, the only optional extra that is mandatory is the 1080p IPS display (BOE NV173FHM-N49 (BOE084E)). Really, the base 900p TN panel sounds so outdated in 2023. The optional screen has wide viewing angles and it’s PWM-free. The sRGB color coverage is low but that’s something normal for a device like this one. The keyboard is comfortable for typing with its large keycaps that have long key travel and clicky feedback. Oops, the backlight is optional but you get a full-sized NumberPad and a smooth touchpad which is great for daily usage. The rigidness of the chassis is average but it’s hard to ask for more in this price class. On the other hand, the overall performance of the laptop is nice.
