It is to respond to this type of need that Asus has developed this TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir -.A well-made laptop that positions itself as mid-range compared to its competitors and because of its price. Material that seem to be well-designed.
With a 17 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The manufacturer has chosen to equip this model with a processor Ryzen 5 3550H. Considering that the components evolve very quickly, Asus offers a laptop of good quality that will remain a good choice over several years.

The 8 Gb of RAM available on this TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir – is correct, equivalent to other products in the same price range. Everyone is free to hand in a little more memory, for work that requires it.
For hard drive sizing, Asus decided to put 500 Gb. This is the standard model. Almost the same as its competitors and what is currently done on the market, you will have room to store.

Asus presents this model in a large size version. Large by size, with 17 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. This model has a wide screen that will be essential for viewing your movies and streaming video. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
The only disadvantage of this size, however, is the weight: here you have a laptop of 2.6 kg.
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 display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
For the sound part, the TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir – is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.

It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model Asus. 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.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.6 Kg. It’s unpleasant to carry. If you use it on your lap, you will find that it is cumbersome. The main cause is due to the size of the screen. For 17 inches, on the other hand, it allows you to have a clear display when you want to browse the internet or write e-mails.
No backlit keyboard on this TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir -. Not really necessary.
Finally, the absence of a glossy slab does not compromise image quality. The viewing is up to the mark.

By equipping this model with a processorRyzen 5 3550H, the manufacturer is on a par with most of its competitors; it is in the average range and it allows a contained power consumption.
The manufacturer estimates a possible range that you can reduce. This is an estimate for average current use; you can consider that the actual range will be around 75%.
Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 5 hours before the breakdown.
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. This disk technology (solid-state drive), tried and tested for more than 20 years, allows to store data, on the same principle as the usb key. Thanks to this, Asus was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.For those who will need more space, this TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir – will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
When away on business, your laptop will mostly stay at the hotel. 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.
This TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir – allows external elements to be associated via 3 connectors. It’s one of the average laptops.

As standard, you will have the applications to make your video editing or your photo or music modifications. And in case you want to go further, you will be able to do so provided you add a bit of memory.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. The TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir – has only got one, with total 500 Gb storage for your movies and music. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
In terms of autonomy,the Asuskept it simple. The available battery life is of 5 hours in standard conditions of use, which means keeping the charger close at hand because the audio-visual assembly consumes a lot of power. A duration which is on the other hand equivalent to the other machines at the moment.
On the connection side, the TUF 705DT-AU042T Noir -i s equipped with USB 3 technology.

The higher the resolution of the image, the more detailed the visual rendering will be. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
The graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 card and processor Ryzen 5 3550H will be sufficient to fill your screen. Of course, there are much better ones, but with the processor Ryzen 5 3550H’s computing power, the image recreated in terms of colorimetry and fluidity are of good quality.
