Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook X543UA-GQ2537T
Despite its lightness and its elegant design with a silver chassis, it does not enter the clan of Ultrabooks because of its thickness greater than the average.
It has IceCool technology to keep temperatures at a reasonable level (between 28 ° and 35 °), particularly at the wrist rest.
The integrated connection to this PC is standard, consisting of a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a monitor or a TV for example, Wi-Fi n and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port but also 3 USB all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device .
It\’s a shame, however, that you\’re not dealing with newer and better Wi-Fi ac.
The screen stands out for its anti-reflective treatment making it more readable than a shiny panel in a light environment (ex: outdoor). For the rest, the screen adopts classic specifications with its definition of 1366×768 and its 16: 9 format.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus VivoBook X543UA-GQ2537T
The Asus VivoBook X543UA-GQ2537T is a lightweight 15 inch High Definition laptop for everyday use.
It is indeed built around 4 GB of RAM and a low-power Kaby Lake Core i3-7020U processor. The latter shows its limits under software demanding in terms of processor resources, which results in slowdowns.
This light computer is suitable for everyday use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation, as well as for multitasking. To be more comfortable in this area, you can add a RAM module to the free DDR4 slot.
Logically with regard to the positioning of this PC, there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. Therefore, this laptop is not intended for gamers and more generally for those who intend to perform heavy graphics work.
However thanks to the very modest benefits of the Intel HD 620 solution integrated into the Core i3, you can watch photos and videos.
In addition, this computer has SSD storage. It is quieter, more energy efficient than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, the reactivity and the fluidity of this PC are reinforced every day compared to a simple hard drive. This allows for example much faster start / stop and launch of applications.
We find more precisely integrated an SSD whose capacity of 256 GB is certainly lower than the standard of hard disks but sufficient for a number of uses.
If in spite of everything it turns out to be too fair, we can obviously use an external storage unit like a USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this computer whose weight contained facilitates transport but which is thick, expect around 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
