Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus X509MA-EJ056T
With its Clear Silver hinged frame Transparent Silver with ErgoLift hinge that raises it slightly forward when opened, it sports an elegant and discreet design.
It can be recharged to 60% in 49 minutes.
In terms of connectivity, it is very well equipped and up to that offered with a number of (much) more expensive laptops. This PC has 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor by for example, an audio port but also 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.
In addition, this computer will appeal to lovers of High Definition content such as videos because its screen adopts a precise Full HD definition superior to the 1366×768 standard as well as a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outside).
Performance, autonomy of the Asus X509MA-EJ056T
The Asus X509MA-EJ056T is a lightweight High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
It is in fact built around 4 GB of RAM and a low-power Pentium Dual Core 4417U Kaby Lake Refresh processor, the latter showing its limits under software that consumes processor resources.
This duo is suitable for everyday use, such as office automation and Internet surfing, as well as for content multitasking.
As it is not backed up by a dedicated graphics card logically with regard to its positioning, this light computer is not, however, designed for heavy graphics work such as games.
Despite everything thanks to the benefits of the Intel HD 610 (modest) integrated within the Pentium, you can obviously watch photos and videos on this elegant silver PC which has the advantage of carrying SSD storage.
Remember that an SSD is silent but also more robust than a hard drive, more energy efficient and much faster.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity than a simple hard drive. This implies in particular with the SSD application launches but also start / stop much faster than with a hard drive.
With its 256 GB, the SSD offers enough capacity for a number of uses but below the standard for hard drives. If it is too tight, you can always add a second SSD or a hard drive thanks to the 2.5 inch free slot.
But we can also use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this PC whose weight contained less than 2 Kg facilitates transport, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
