The Asus R410UA-BV127T does not really revolutionize PC design codes with its silver gray tones and rounded lines. However, the result is neat with a dark brushed effect on the lid and two textures on the inside: squared on the space where the palms rest and dotted around the keyboard. It is discreet but it has the merit of getting out of the ordinary smooth and dull.
Side measurements, it is positioned in the average with a relative fineness of 21 mm and a reasonable weight around 1.5 kg, enough to open a little nomadic life.
Main element in the configuration of the PC, the SSD will work primarily to bring responsiveness and liveliness to Windows 10. It generates a significant gain in terms of silence, energy saving and reliability compared to a traditional hard drive. Nevertheless, its storage capacity of 256 GB can decently not be measured against the latter and does not allow to archive an important toy library. The use of an external storage system and / or online becomes essential.
The Asus R410UA-BV127T is equipped for office use with a base installed on a Core i3 Skyake and 8 GB of RAM. Internet browsing, working on Office or video playback are perfectly managed by this duo as well as light photo editing. But this base will not be able to tackle more demanding in terms of applications. Good point, the RAM in quantity will offer a nice amplitude in multitasking, enough to satisfy the collectors of tabs on the browser.
On the side of the screen, the finding is a little disappointing in terms of the price charged (not to mention the starting price). The definition is standard (1366 x 768 pixels) and the support of a TN panel offers narrow viewing angles and a medium colorimetry. Good point, the slab is anti-reflective treated will limit the inconvenience associated with exposure to strong light.
Let\’s finish with the connectivity that is at least frugal. The sides of the PC only have one HDMI output, two USB ports including a USB 3.0, a headphone jack and a microSD card reader. Exit the Ethernet port or USB Type-C. Similarly, the wireless modules are older generation Wifi 802.11 N and Bluetooth 4.0.
