Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is less tiring for the eyes during prolonged use than a glossy panel and is more readable in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, autonomy of the Asus VivoBook S17 M710DA-BX787W
The Asus VivoBook S17 M710DA-BX787W is a relatively thin and light full-size laptop intended for everyday general purpose use.
It benefits from a good amount of above average 16 GB RAM, which is very good at multitasking and under processing.
It is coupled with an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 3700U low-power Quad Core Picasso old-generation processor.
This duo delivers great performance in everyday use, such as in office automation and surfing the Internet, but also in light gaming thanks to the Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics solution. Directly integrated with the Ryzen 7 Quad Core, the Radeon RX Vega 10 enables both safe viewing of photos and videos.
On the storage side, there is an SSD that matches the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB. While quieter, less energy consuming, more stable and faster.
Therefore, an SSD represents an undeniable advantage in use because it improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we get for example faster start / stop, processing and launch of applications, or even faster arrival of online games cards.
Of course, if you need more than 512 GB, you can rely on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device represents an interesting option for getting fast transfers.
As for autonomy, it is clearly not the strong point of this computer that can last almost 4 hours on the battery. But in its large format it is particularly comfortable for mainly seated use (eg at home). If a 17 inch is not the most portable by nature, its refinement and its weight content will be appreciated by users who want to transport their PC in spite of everything.
