Although we didn't test this exact exact model version, in our Asus VivoBook 15 review, we praised its handsome design, comfortable keyboard, and great audio. The laptop we tested had the same Ryzen 7 CPU and 12GB of RAM combo as the VivoBook 17 in this deal. In one test, we had 15 to 25 Google Chrome tabs open with a few of them running videos while editing documents and the VivoBook's performance remained solid.
