Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook S433FA-EK794T
Rechargeable to 60% in just 49 minutes, it has an elegant and discreet look with its light silver frame.
This Ultrabook is equipped with a good connection including 1 USB-C, a useful HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules and to communicate and connect to wireless distance, an audio port as well as 3 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
The chiclet keyboard of this Asus laptop PC can be backlit, which is very practical to better distinguish its keys when the ambient light is limited.
The screen will be of interest to fans of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition as well as a 16: 9 format. In addition, it is adorned with an anti-reflective treatment making it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). As the screen is not IPS however, its viewing angles are therefore less important than those offered by this technology.
Performance, battery life of Asus Vivobook S433FA-EK794T
The Asus Vivobook S433FA-EK794T is a compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
Thanks to its 8 GB of RAM and its low-power Quad Core i5-10210U Ice Lake processor, this Ultrabook delivers good overall performance that can suit a number of users.
However, those who often wish to perform demanding processor and / or graphics work will benefit from turning to a PC based on a non-low power processor and / or an adequate graphics card.
Because this thin and light laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card. Therefore, it is not designed for heavy graphics processing such as games. However, thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 Ice Lake, you can of course watch photos and videos.
As for storage, Asus has chosen here an Intel Optane H10 hybrid solution that we tested .
It has the particularity of combining a 512 GB SSD (capacity similar to the standard of hard drives) with a 32 GB Optane part. The latter offers a comfort close to an SSD without however allowing the installation or storage of software / files unlike SSD.
If the contribution of Optane is important when it is associated with a hard disk, it is not very significant when coupled to an SSD.
The fact remains that thanks to this SSD Optane system, this Ultrabook is significantly more responsive and fluid on a daily basis than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive.
In practice, we thus benefit from much faster starts / stops and launches of applications.
Of course, if you need more space than the 512 GB offered here, you have the option of relying on an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the weight contained, the compactness and the smoothness, count on approximately 7 hours of operation on battery in light use.
