Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus R509JA-EJ032T
With its light silver frame, it sports an elegant and discreet design.
This laptop is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for remote connections and communications, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, its audio port as well as its 3 USB all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than with USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
But a priori, no backlight system of the chiclet keyboard keys, while we expect to find this functionality with regard to the positioning of this PC.
In any case, the screen lends itself well to displaying videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. Due to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more legible than a bright panel in a bright environment (ex: outdoor).
Performance, autonomy of the Asus R509JA-EJ032T
The Asus R509JA-EJ032T is a lightweight and responsive High Definition laptop designed for general purpose use.
Thanks to its SSD storage, it benefits from a much better fluidity and reactivity on a daily basis than if it were based on a simple hard drive.
With its 512 GB, the on-board SSD competes with hard disks in terms of capacity while being more energy efficient, more robust, quieter and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, this computer benefits for example from start / stop and software launches much faster than a hard drive.
And if 512 GB is too tight, you can add a second SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5-inch slot. But also use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
In any case, the SSD obviously goes well with the heart of this light computer. Composed of 8 GB of RAM and a Quad Core i7-1065G7 low-consumption Ice Lake processor that we tested , it delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
To regularly carry out heavy work in processor resources, it is better however to opt for a PC based on a processor not low consumption.
Although it does not have a dedicated graphics card, this elegant silver laptop is capable of running a lot of games if we make adjustments under the titles a little greedy.
It takes advantage of the benefits of the Iris Plus Graphics G7 housed within Ice Lake, which is significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 and at the level of a graphics card, below the dedicated GeForce MX250 card .
Of course with this PC whose transport is facilitated by the weight less than 2 Kg, you can watch photos and videos. Not as easily transportable as an Ultrabook, it offers a battery life of around 5 hours on light use.
