Elegant. The VivoBook scores with a Ryzen 7-5700U APU, 16 GB of working memory (dual-channel mode) and good battery runtimes. The Vega 8 iGPU remains below its capabilities. The dark, low-contrast screen (FHD, IPS) is not convincing.

90% Asus ROG Zephyrus S17 laptop review: Gaming device case opens up to provide more fresh air. Cool - but is it safe?

Open Sesame! Laptops have little space to adequately cool powerful hardware. Asus probably wondered, "why don't we just open the case and let the hardware get a direct supply of fresh air?" No sooner said than done, but does this actually work? Does it deliver the promised advantages in terms of noise and temperature, and is it stable enough at the same time? We put this to the test.
