Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S513IA-EJ846T
With its Bespoke Black blue / black chassis with an entry key cut out in yellow, it has an original and nonetheless discreet look.
In terms of connectivity, this thin and light computer is well equipped with its Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor via example, its audio port, its USB 3.1 Type-C as well as its 2 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 it a USB 3.0 device.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, a feature expected at this price level because it is very practical for distinguishing keys in dimly lit surroundings.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. It also adopts a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition making it well suited to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content.
Performance, battery life of Asus VivoBook S513IA-EJ846T
The Asus VivoBook S513IA-EJ846T is a 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday general-purpose use.
It stands out for its good amount of RAM of 16 GB above the average which allows to see well coming in the matter and is useful in multitasking. It goes well with the processor, an AMD Octo Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) low consumption Ryzen 7 4700U Renoir. This duo delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
For example, it provides faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a low-consumption Quad Core processor in areas that are greedy in RAM and CPU resources taking advantage of multicore, such as video editing, photo editing or 3D rendering.
That being said, if we regularly carry out this type of heavy work, it will be better to opt for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
Thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics part integrated into the Octo Core AMD Renoir, you can watch photos and videos on this computer but also play titles that do not require 3D resources.
The Radeon Vega 7 is indeed positioned at the level of an entry-level dedicated graphics card and is therefore more powerful than the UHD 620 of Intel processors.
On the storage side, this PC is equipped with an SSD that rivals hard drives in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB while being silent, more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, this thin and light laptop is much more responsive and fluid than if it had a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we therefore benefit from much faster software launches, processing and starts / stops, for example, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
As for the autonomy of this computer, whose weight and thinness facilitate transport, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
