The Asus VivoBook S13 S330UA-EY027T is a compact, high definition notebook designed for everyday mobile use.
Its compactness and controlled weight make it easy to transport. Side autonomy, it will be necessary to await the first tests of this series to get a better idea. However, we can estimate that we can hold at least 6 hours on battery in light use.
The screen adopts an anti-reflective treatment that is very useful for mobile use because it ensures better visibility than gloss in a bright environment (ex: outdoor). IPS, the screen offers a more accurate colorimetry than average as well as important vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also adopts a Full HD definition. Thus, it is very well suited to display High Definition content and especially to videos because of its 16 / 9th format.
Thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics part integrated into the processor, we can obviously look at photos and videos on this Ultrabook which will not seduce the players. It is indeed devoid of dedicated GPU.
Excluding games, it still delivers good overall performance to satisfy many users because it is equipped with a good amount of RAM of 8 GB coupled to a processor Quad Core i5-8250U low consumption Kaby Lake Refresh. The latter guarantees faster processing than a Kaby Lake low-power Core i5 / i7 under software using the multicore architecture.
With a dedicated SSD of 256 GB, this Ultrabook is much more responsive and fluid than if it were equipped with a hard disk. Compared to the latter, remember that a SSD is much faster but also less energy, more robust and quiet.
As often, however, the capacity of the embedded SSD is lower than the standard of the hard drives. If it is right, we can obviously use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device is an interesting solution because it takes advantage of transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
The connectivity integrated to this Ultrabook also consists of 3 USB all compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 including 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, an audio port u still a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example.
Lastly, let\’s mention the presence of a Windows Hello compatible fingerprint reader to identify the system in a simple and secure way. The chiclet keyboard has a handy backlight system that makes it easy to distinguish them when the ambient light is dim.
