Chassis, Connectivity, Display of Asus VivoBook S412UA-EK455T
Its blue design is original and clearly sets it apart from the competition, especially since it adopts an ErgoLift hinge in parallel which raises it slightly forward when opened.
This Ultrabook has a good connection including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, a convenient HDMI video output to connect easily to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port or 2 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
The screen will appeal to lovers of high definition content and especially videos because it adopts a definition Full HD accurate superior to standard 1366×768 and a 16 / 9th format. Anti-reflective, the screen is also more legible in a bright environment (eg outside) than a glossy slab.
Performance, autonomy of Asus VivoBook S412UA-EK455T
The Asus VivoBook S412UA-EK455T is a compact high definition notebook designed for everyday use.
It is indeed based on a Pentium Gold Dual Core 4417U Kaby Lake Refresh low power processor and 4 GB of RAM. This duo shows its limits under the demanding applications in processor resources, which results in slowdowns.
In practice, such components are suitable for multitasking content and common use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation. However, as it is not supported by a dedicated GPU, this blue Ultrabook is not intended for games and more generally for heavy graphics.
However, you can of course watch photos and videos with this thin and light Ultrabook thanks to the modest benefits of the integrated Intel HD 610 solution within the Pentium.
Entrusted to a SSD, storage supports the heart of this computer everyday. An SSD provides better fluidity and responsiveness than a hard disk, with startups / stops and software launches much faster.
This is because a SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more robust, more energy efficient and quiet. On the other hand the proposed capacity is as often inferior to the standard of the hard disks. If the 128 GB of the embedded SSD here are just right, but we can of course use an external storage unit as a USB 3.0 device to enjoy fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight and the compact dimensions, plan about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
