Original with its thin and light blue design, the thin and light Asus VivoBook 17 S1702ZA-AU152W laptop with 17-inch IPS Full HD anti-glare screen benefits from a large capacity SSD storage of 1TB which reinforces its reactivity, a backlit keyboard and USB-C connectivity. This creation-oriented Ultrabook that runs under Windows 11 performs well even with multimedia content thanks to its 16 GB of RAM and its Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1260P hybrid processor with Iris Xe graphics module, thanks to which you can play modest titles.
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook 17 S1702ZA-AU152W
The Asus VivoBook 17 S1702ZA-AU152W is a large, relatively thin and light notebook designed for everyday multipurpose use and multimedia.
It benefits from a large 1TB SSD storage capacity that can accommodate multiple files and software.
In addition, an SSD offers many advantages compared to a hard disk, such as greater resistance to shocks, lower power consumption, silent operation and greater speed.
In practice, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity in use than a hard disk.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, you can start/stop, process and launch software much faster, or even get to the maps of online games faster.
Of course, there is no dedicated graphics card on board. But you can still watch photos and videos as well as play modest games. And this is thanks to the Iris Xe graphics solution directly inserted in the processor.
The processor is an Intel Alder Lake-P low-power hybrid Core i7-1260P with a TDP of 28W, which is higher than the classic 15W, which allows for better performance but impacts autonomy.
Still, the Core i7-1260P is coupled with 16GB of RAM to deliver good overall performance to satisfy many users.
This core is particularly suitable for multimedia work using the multi-core – and therefore the 12 cores of the Core i7 – and RAM. This is the case, for example, for photo editing or video encoding.
On the other hand, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor and/or a dedicated graphics card if you plan to carry out frequent processing that requires processor and/or graphics resources.
Finally, as far as autonomy is concerned, you can expect to spend about 5 hours on battery power in light use for this versatile Ultrabook, whose lightness and thinness make it easy to carry. However, by nature, a 17-inch is not the most nomadic of all. But it is comfortable for a mostly sedentary use (e.g. at home).

Asus VivoBook 17 S1702ZA-AU152W chassis, connectivity, screen
With its slim and light blue design, it looks both original and elegant.
This versatile multimedia laptop is equipped with good connectivity consisting of 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi ac wireless modules for wireless communication and remote connection, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port and 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
A priori therefore not Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5 modules more recent and powerful.
But the keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful to better distinguish them in low-light environments.
The screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more broadly of High Definition content by its 16:9 format and its Full HD definition. Its horizontal and vertical viewing angles are important thanks to its IPS technology, while its anti-reflection treatment makes it more readable than a glossy panel in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) and more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
