Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S14 S413FA-EK598T
With its white ErgoLift hinged silver frame which raises it slightly forward when opened, it sports a sober and elegant look.
This Ultrabook 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 audio port, its useful HDMI video output in order to connect it easily to a TV or monitor for example or its 3 USB all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it .
The screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content and in particular to videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition and a 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performance, autonomy of the Asus VivoBook S14 S413FA-EK598T
The Asus VivoBook S14 S413FA-EK598T is a compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
It benefits from a silent SSD storage while being more robust than a hard drive, less energy-consuming and much faster. In addition, it offers a capacity of 512 GB which rivals hard drives.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, this Ultrabook is clearly more fluid and responsive than if it were based on a hard drive. Thanks to SSD, for example, software launches and starts / stops are much faster than with a hard drive.
And if you need additional space, you can always rely on an external storage unit like a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
The SSD goes well with the heart of this thin and light computer on a daily basis which delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users. There is indeed within this Ultrabook a Comet Lake processor low consumption Quad Core i7-10510U associated with 8 GB of RAM.
However, you should be aware of the fact that if you want to regularly perform demanding work in processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low power processor.
Ditto if you want to play and more generally perform heavy graphics processing: we will opt for another computer because it does not have a dedicated graphics card. The Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i7 takes care of all the graphics. Modest, it of course allows you to view photos and videos.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and lightness facilitate transport, expect around 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
