This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T the right choice for surfing the internet?
Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.This laptop will ensure that the tasks you perform will be reliable and trouble-free for years to come.In fact, it’s all about finding a product with the right price/quality ratio. You only have to take it in your hand to see that the material is of quality.
A laptop that meets all the requirements! This is what the ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T from Asus seems to be.
It’s a big screen that you have: 17 inches that will be less easily transported compared to an ultra book. As for the processor level, this model is equipped with the Core i7-10750H. A component providing impressive power and responsiveness. In short, this model will give you full satisfaction for an Internet browsing use. The amount of RAM provided is 16 Gb. It’s the certainty that the computer will work better and longer.
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. 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.
Last point concerning the autonomy of 4 hours: A time of freedom that you will have to take into account and keep the power kit not too far away. This is lower than what you can find in its competitors for the same price range. A lower autonomy is harmful, because the ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T is easy to access, and you have a lot of fun using it for a long time.
ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T for videos?
This ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T is a sensible option for anyone who will use it for watching movies and listening to music. Not the best, however it is one of the models existing in a tight price range.
Through all the available laptops, you will know if, despite an average score, it corresponds to your needs.
Asus presents this model in a large size version. Large by size, with 17 inches and a high resolution of 1920×1080. Multimedia oriented, you will enjoy watching your films. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
Note that one eliminatory criteria for some nomadic users is its weight; here this model weighs 2.9 kg, partly because of the screen size.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
For the sound part, the ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
This model has one of the best processors of the moment; the Core i7-10750H. Belonging to the latest generation of processors, this laptop will not be impressed by multiple multimedia tasks. This means that several billion calculations can be carried out simultaneously.
You will do what you want for the applications, as it is not Asus installed by default. Only the operating system is installed. This is a Windows 10 on which you can install the software you need. Can only be VLC to manage the audio and video part.
Equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphic card, and with 16 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. 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. It’s better than the competition. Plenty of room to connect your mouse, speakers and other USB keys.
Nothing is more unpleasant than a computer that shuts down before the end of the film because of batteries of poor autonomy. Indeed, with 4 hours of autonomy, it is one of the worst specifications. A management of the time available to take into account when you are on the move watching a movie. In other words, do not rely too much on performance and prefer to use this device always connected to electricity.
ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T compatible with on the move use ?
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model Asus. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
In other words, leave it at home and only take it for occasional short trips.
It is one of the heaviest laptops in its class, with 2.9 Kg. It’s complicated when you have to transport it. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The main cause is due to the size of the screen. Its weight is a disadvantage, but the17 inches screen will make it an advantage when writing e-mails or doing word processing.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Despite the absence of a shiny slab, you have good image definition. This laptop displays deep and vivid colors.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
Thanks to its processor ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T, the use in exclusive battery mode is one of the most important of the competition. With the low voltage on the processor, the autonomy is increased and allows to last longer than competing models.
On the other hand, these are estimated data based on average laptop usage.
Unfortunately for the specifications of the batteries will only allow 4 hours of availability, one of the lowest at the moment.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 500 Gb SSD hard drive. 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. With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.For those who will need more space, this ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
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 reason for this is its size; with 17 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.
Bluetooth technology is great when you’re on the go, and you’ll enjoy the convenience of connecting easily to a phone or speakers.
Finally with the ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T, Asus deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.
The ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T to make audio or video editing.
The publishing or the musical creation are not the uses that the engineers of Asus have thought of for this ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T. The weak point of this model is its processor, and its amount of memory. Even if it would be possible to do audio or video cutting, it doesn’t seem to correspond to this need. Asus has favoured more standard uses, which require less computing speed. You should also be aware that this model is becoming outdated. So use this laptop for simple tasks, otherwise you’ll reach the limits and very often you’ll have frozen screens .

The designers of Asus have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. 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 ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023T 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.
With 4 hours in battery-only calculation mode, you’ll have little latitude. This is less than average, so we advise you to keep the power cable close by, otherwise you may lose your work unexpectedly. On this point Asus could have done much better.
For the connector part, the ROG Strix G17 G712LU-H7023Thas the USB3 format. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. With a throughput about 10 times faster than the previous standard (USB 2.0), you will be able to easily transfer all your video and audio files.
