    I didn't realize it doesn't have a hookup for a network cable of which i needed to hook up my wifi AP. Thank goodness I still gave my old laptop to accomplish it. Not sure what to do in the future if my old laptop dies. I also didnt realize there was no cd drive which i also still use. I could have lived with the cd player but when my wifi died there is no getting around that missing in this laptop. Other than that I kinda wish I opted for the backlit keyboard. That one is on me totally. Otherwise I really like the speed and graphics and all on it

    I couldn't have asked for a better laptop. The screen is massive, the silver metal is cool to the touch and appears both professional and aesthetic. The camera quality is insane compared to my last ASUS, and the sound quality is out of this world! I mainly use my ASUS VivoBook for internet browsing, YouTube streaming, writing, and playing the Sims 4. It takes everything I ask of it in stride. Tl;dr: I love this laptop! (My roommate is going to buy the same laptop.)

    I was in need to upgrade my laptop and the Best Buy associate suggested this one for me based on the work I was going to be doing and the specs. I've only ever used 15.6" laptops, so I was definitely hesitant about the size of it, but quickly fell in love with the large screen as I began to do Zoom calls, graphic design, and photo editing. Some drawbacks are definitely the lack of a backlit keyboard, as it can be difficult to clearly see the letters and numbers on the keyboard. Overall, it is an excellent laptop and quite the upgrade from my previous laptop, but it just isn't the right fit for me. As a student and teacher, I am constantly needed to bring my laptop with me and although I love the size of the screen, it just isn't practical for when I need to be transporting it around from work, to home, to coffee shops, and school. If you don't plan to be transporting it around or don't care much about the size or weight of the laptop, this could absolutely be the perfect fit for you!

    ASUS - Vivobook 17.3" Laptop - AMD Ryzen 7 - 12GB

    Overall the ASUS - Vivobook 17.3" Laptop - AMD Ryzen 7 - 12GB , does what I wanted it for; internet machine, run/input code, and move simple files from machine to machine. I have a more powerful machine for videos, editing, and moving "big" files. Being a laptop it fulfills the "portability" that I need. I am slightly disappointed about the lack of IPS for the display (110 degree); I do use a dual screen though. Retail $800 minus holiday discount $200, still no "IPS display". Glad it is 17.3 inch. Great speed, solid build, LED display = low power use. Still a good purchase; its what I needed.

    I use the laptop for day trading and limited other programs so, there’s not much downloaded onto it. It’s fast, boots up very fast and works great. I really like the and ryzen over the intel machine I usually use. The only issue I have with it is the mouse pad don’t move sometimes. It’s also Jerkey while moving. I’ve adjusted the sensitivity of it to no avail. I guess I’m going to have to buy a wireless mouse. With limited desk space I do not want to do it but the mouse pad is very annoying.

    I liked this laptop very much, but sadly will be returning it because I didn't realize it didn't have a backlit keyboard. I use it on my lap while sitting in my Lazyboy and although I don't look at the keys when typing, if I NEED to see a specific key in the evenings, I would have to move the laptop around or adjust the angle to see it. Otherwise, it was very good.

    This is a great laptop for a great price. I needed it to do schoolwork and play The Sims 4, and it performs very well for both. It is a great size. I was a little disappointed with the keyboard. The keys and the letters are very similar in color and so they're very hard to see when typing. Also, within 3 hours of using it, the paint rubbed off from touching the wall behind my desk. It definitely feels cheap. Overall, I really like this laptop, and it's what's on the inside that counts!

    The processor and specs on this computer are great. The AMD processor is really fast and the computer is responsive. However, the keyboard on this computer is TERRIBLE. The keys are gray text on a silver key and have too much glare to see in low light. In all but the brightest light, the letters seemingly disappear. If you're going to use this with an external keyboard, then I'd say you're fine, but if you will be using it indoors in low light, I'd say try to find another computer with similar specs.

    I decided against HP & Intel, and went with Asus & AMD, and I'm glad I did so far. This laptop has a large screen and it's large enough to have the number pad on the right side of the keyboard. I don't know why others are saying it's not a gaming laptop. With 12 GB of ram and a Ryzen 7 with a graphics chip and 4 GB onboard I haven't really seen any performance issues. I'm currently giving only 4 stars because at the moment, although I was told I could do more than 1 extra monitor the USB 3.0 is not handling the display port Alt mode. I cannot, with any cable or monitor configuration, get the second external display to be recognized. Other than that I'm happy.

    I bought this for my mother to replace her 10-year-old HP. She's a lovely woman, and relatively smart for an 80 year old woman. College degree from U of Wi, etc. But she's absolutely clueless when it comes to some things, and computers are one of those things. She's been using a computer for 25 years, and she doesn't understand how to save something to a file, or how to go into files to look for something. If she gets a picture emailed to her, that picture lives in that email forever. It's alarming how clueless she is, for a relatively intelligent person. She can do absolutely nothing except for look at websites, play a few online games, read and send email. But she does her own taxes every year on Turbo Tax! She's smart about that. She definitely knows how to navigate US tax code. But then she'll "accidentally" sign up for amazon prime, or she'll "accidentally" delete an icon from Desktop, etc. Whenever I visit her, I have a list of things to "fix" on her computer. And I do it without complaint, and without showing any outward signs of frustration. Because really, I'm not frustrated. She's just a nice person, and she's my mom. This new computer is working out great for her. The 17.3" monitor is her favorite. She doesn't detect the speed advantage of the SSD, but it's there. Her only complaint, a complaint which I share by the way, is that the letter markings on the keys are very low contrast. And they're not backlit. So depending on the lighting in the room, sometimes the markings are almost invisible. That's a big demerit. I'm not sure how the designers could overlook such a glaring flaw. (Pun definitely intended.) Thanks for all the brownies, mom. We'll be visiting again real soon.

    I have been pleased with the overall performance of this computer. I mostly use it for accessing the Internet, but I decided on this because it has a storage capacity, as well. I also wanted a computer with a keypad with numbers. This model is affordable, portable, and has a good size screen. The display is nice and the controls are easy to navigate. A pleasant surprise is the light that goes with the camera. This makes online meetings easier, as I don't have to find an additional external lighting source. I have not been as pleased with the speaker system. If one is looking for a device to listen to music, it will be best to get an external speaker to improve the quality.

    I bought this laptop to do business invoicing and accounting and to run 3D CAD modeling, it has the power to render complex 3D objects fairly easily while remaining portable enough to take to the job site. A good value in my book.

    Purchased for my daughter for her birthday. The best thing is the price. It's a great above average laptop. Things sacrificed are keys don't light up and the battery is probably just average. And the screen isn't a touch screen. If those things are not most important to you, the price and performance are more then worth the purchase.

    The Start button is puzzling because it usually takes two clicks, like a delayed reaction, to begin. I have to wait quite awhile sometime for the computer to start. Is this normal? I wonder if it needs attention from the Geek Squad. The hesitation is questionable. I wish printed instructions were included for saving text files in order to print them later elsewhere from a memory stick. I would like instructions for saving on the hard drive too, and hooking up a printer. Print is too light on screen. Complete instructions should be given in hard copy, rather than abbreviated ones included.

    Overall I found this to be a great computer with very impressive specs. In fact my first reaction was that this was a lot of computer for the price. Both the processor and 12GB of ram made it run smoothly and fast. The large screen combined with the AMD graphics was beautiful. However if you are like me and need to see the keys when you type those impressive specs are for the most part useless. When standing up and looking down at the keyboard in a brightly lit showroom you don’t notice this computers very significant flaw. When you get it home and are looking at the keyboard in a more natural setting that major flaw is quickly noticed. How the silver letters on silver keys on this keyboard made it to market baffles me. If you are a person that needs to see the keys to type this computer becomes frustratingly difficult to use. Unless the computer is at a perfect angle in a brightly lit room you can’t see the keys. Those impressive specs become useless very fast when you can’t see the keyboard letters. If you plan to use it standing up looking down at it or can type without seeing the keys this would be a great computer for the price. But if you are like me and plan to sit while you type I would definitely think twice about purchasing it. I tried for a week to make it work for me, but in the end I was unsuccessful and the keyboard was a deal breaker and I returned it.

    Very good laptop and very light at 5.07 lbs. which is slim and light for a 17.3" laptop. I had a Lenovo Gaming Laptop 3 years ago and it weighed 10 lbs., but had all the bells and whistles. ASUS and DELL laptops are rated 1 and 2 overall. See ratings below. I also own a DELL which I bought from Best Buy a little over a year ago-great Gaming Laptop. I would have liked to have backlit keys on the ASUS. Does not cost much to have that. And the price I paid for the ASUS was great. Some reviews on Laptops: https://www.laptopmag.com/features/laptop-brand-ratings The next time I buy a Gaming Laptop I will be looking for 1TB SSD and 16GB on the Memory. Must be 17.3"

    this was a life or death situation when my laptop died for I pay all my bills online. The stress that goes with that is unreal. Try to contact everyone so you can pay the bills!!! My experience was a good one in buying my new laptop although every laptop I liked was out of stock! finally settled on one that had less than I wanted and more than I wanted to spend. Needless to say so far this has worked out well. Thank you

    I needed to replace my laptop. Available stock was limited. A sales associate showed me the Asus. I checked with the Geek Squad, who agreed it was a good product and an upgrade from my last laptop. I've seen reviews complaining the keys are hard to see. I have no problem and like the touch of the keyboard. The only thing I don't like is that the Home, PgUp, PgDn, and End keys are in the number pad and have to be unlocked every time you want to use them.

    This laptop equips with good CPU, DRAM, and Hard Drive. However, keyboard letters are not easy to see. They should use different colors. Screen resolution and quality are also a weakness. Therefore, this is good for students, but not for professionals.

    Great value buy. O ky downsize was no TB (Thunderbolt port for 40 mbs) other than that, excellent PC for the price. Doesn't have touch screen or back light keyboard or 4k screen but for what I got it for and the price. A good fit.
