This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX compatible with internet use?
What you expect from a mobile phone is that it allows you to surf the Web, and possibly allow you to write e-mails, do calculations in a spreadsheet or word processor. With this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX, the company wanted to design a very basic model. The material used by Asus are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
It’s a big screen that you have: 17 inches that will be less easily transported compared to an ultra book. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Ryzen 5 4600H. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. The compromise could be on a model with a smaller screen size but with a better processor. In the end, you shouldn’t ask too much of this computer, otherwise you’ll get annoyed by its slowness when you launch several applications in parallel. The 8 Gb of RAM available on this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is correct, equivalent to other products in the same price range. It’s up to you to add more on the additional pitches provided if your needs arise.
For hard drive sizing, Asus decided to put 500 Gb. This is the standard model. In any case, it should be enough for a use like surfing the web. And when you reach the limit, if you get there, you can always buy an external hard drive or a local file server like Synlogy NAS.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 5 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. This is standard for this range of laptops, and for the type of battery it is equipped with. Because of this last point, you can either switch to a competitor’s laptop or always have the product plugged in; it’s up to you.
TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX the right choice for watching movies ?
Asus has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. Due to its characteristics and internal components, this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX is to be classified as entry-level: not exceptional, but on the other hand, not expensive. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
The laptop from .Asus is imposing by its size. Large by size, with 17 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. The rendering is bright and vivid, and if you take a moment to look at the screen from several angles you will see that there is no distortion of the image or inverted colors.
One of the disadvantages of this size, however, is the overall weight: 2.6 kg that will have to be transported.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
On the sound side, it TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX has good components: board and integrated speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Ryzen 5 4600H that is several years old now. As a result, in the important calculation phase, it may be a little brighter, and will consume more energy. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
On the application side, Asus chose to let you do it. There’s only the operating system. This is a Windows 10 that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. Can only be VLC to manage the audio and video part.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Regarding the connectivity part, Asus has made efforts with available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
About the batteries, be aware that you will have some time before you have to reconnect the power. Asus promises 5 hours of battery life; that’s about average.
TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX the right choice for travelling connected ?
It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX to be easily carried around. This seems to be the issue that the Asus didn’t really take into account in the design of this TUF766II-AU098T Noir/Gris – GTX. Having tested this laptop in situations as diverse as traveling, in a suitcase between shirts and jeans, while traveling between home and work, on a family weekend, here’s what you should remember.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.6 Kg. It’s unpleasant to carry. For a laptop it”s bulky to move. The main cause is due to the size of the screen. With its 17 inches, the screen will however render a large image.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. The screen shows an interesting result.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
With the installation of the processor Ryzen 5 4600H, the power consumption is rather important.
Also, the batteries hold the charge for a shorter time; probably the worst results in this range. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
An autonomy of 5 hours allows this model to average what the competitors do.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 500 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
When it comes to taking your laptop with you, it will seem safer to do so only occasionally. Its size does not invite you to carry it everywhere you go. The main reason is its 17 inches, which makes it one of the largest in its class; every move, with its weight, may be difficult.
