Chassis, Connectivity, Display of Asus P1504FA-EJ709R
It sports a professional and discreet design with its original anthracite chassis with its ErgoLift hinge which raises it 2 ° forward.
This Ultrabook is well-equipped with USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, and convenient HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or laptop. a monitor for example, its audio port or USB all compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
With its Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen is perfect for displaying High Definition content such as videos. Anti-reflective treatment ensures better visibility in bright environment (ex: exterior) than a glossy slab. Point of technology IPS however and because of this, viewing angles are more limited.
It may be regrettable the lack of backlighting system keys chiclet keyboard and that of a biometric reader.
In any case, this Ultrabook runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete edition than Windows 10 classic by its advanced tools for network management and security like BitLocker.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus P1504FA-EJ709R
The Asus P1504FA-EJ709R is a compact 15-inch notebook designed for everyday use.
Equipped with a Whiskey Lake low-power Quad Core i5-8265U processor coupled with 8 GB of RAM, this thin and light computer delivers good overall performance to satisfy many users.
However, it is not intended for games and more generally for heavy graphics because it ignores a dedicated GPU. Nevertheless, we can obviously look at photos and videos with this Ultrabook thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics part housed within the Quad Core i5.
In terms of storage, Asus opted here for an SSD and not a hard drive. Compared to the latter, remember that a SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and quiet.
Result thanks to the SSD, one benefits from a significantly more fluid and reactive operation than with a hard disk. Thus, startups / stops and software launches are much faster.
However, as is often the case with embedded SSDs, the capacity is lower than the standard for hard drives. Here we find a SSD whose 256 GB are sufficient for many uses. However, if it proves too fair, you can always use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution because we benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the weight and finesse, bet about 5 hours on battery in light use.
