Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus S509DA-EJ051T
It sports a sober and elegant design with its light silver chassis.
The integrated connection to this light PC is good, composed of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 for remote connections and communications, an audio port and 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
The screen will interest fans of videos and more generally of High Definition content thanks to its precise Full HD definition superior to the 1366×768 standard and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny screen.
Performance, battery life of the Asus S509DA-EJ051T
The Asus S509DA-EJ051T is a 15 inch High Definition laptop designed for general purpose use.
The general performance it delivers is able to satisfy many users because it is built around an AMD APU processor (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 3500U low consumption Picasso and a good amount of RAM of 8 GB very appreciable in multitasking.
In addition, the Radeon Vega 8 solution housed in the Ryzen 5 is positioned at the level of a dedicated entry-level graphics card and is clearly superior to the UHD 620 of Intel processors. Result with this elegant and light PC, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that do not consume 3D resources despite the lack of dedicated graphics card.
On the storage side, there is a 256 GB SSD on board, a capacity which is certainly sufficient for a number of uses but which may be too fair for some.
We can however use an external storage unit as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
Because an SSD offers significant advantages compared to a hard drive: it is silent, more resistant to shocks, less energy-consuming and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, this silver computer is much more responsive and fluid than if it were based on a hard drive. This notably implies much faster start / stop and launch of applications thanks to SSD.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose transport is certainly not as easy as an Ultrabook but whose weight contained less than 2 Kg is nevertheless interesting, bet on about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
