Chassis, Connectivity, Display Asus ZenBook S13 UX392FN-AB006T
It sports an elegant look with its ErgoLift hinged blue Utopia aluminum monobloc frame (unibody) which raises it to the rear of 5.5 ° when opened.
Very thin and light, it can be recharged to 60% in 45 minutes and is robust because it conforms to the US MIL-STD-810G military resistance standard.
Connectivity side, it has 2 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth modules 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely wireless, audio port or 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers made faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device. On the other hand, HDMI video output point which may disappoint some.
Many people will appreciate in any case to be able to backlight the keyboard chiclet because we can properly discern its keys in the dark.
In addition, a fingerprint reader is present to identify easily and quickly on the system via Windows Hello technology.
100% sRGB and IPS, the screen displays more accurate colors than average as well as important vertical and horizontal viewing angles. With a very fine frame, the screen is accurate thanks to its Full HD definition that makes it well suited to High Definition content including videos in its 16 / 9th format. Because of its brilliant treatment, the screen revives the colors but is sensitive to reflections in bright environment (ex: outside).
Performance, autonomy of Asus ZenBook S13 UX392FN-AB006T
The Asus ZenBook S13 UX392FN-AB006T can appeal to those who want to acquire a very compact and lightweight and yet versatile laptop.
It delivers good overall performance to satisfy many users. It relies on a good amount of RAM of 16 GB coupled to a processor Whiskey Lake Quad Core i7-8565U low consumption.
In addition, this Ultrabook is very responsive daily because it benefits from SSD storage. It competes with hard drives with its 512 GB while being much faster, less energy, more robust and quiet.
Compared to a hard disk, we get a better fluidity as well as start / stop and software launches much faster.
Despite its finesse, this ultraportable also has a dedicated graphics card GeForce MX150. Thus, we can indulge in games not too greedy in 3D resources and of course look at photos and videos just as with the Intel UHD 620 solution housed within the Quad Core i7.
NVIDIA Optimus embedded technology automatically switches between the GeForce MX150 and the Intel UHD 620, depending on the tasks performed. The Intel UHD 620 is favored as much as it can by Optimus while it is modest because its low energy consumption promotes autonomy. The GeForce MX150 is therefore enabled by Optimus to perform the graphic processing estimated too heavy for the Intel UHD 620.
Finally, this Ultrabook is very easy to carry thanks to its weight of 1 kg and its compact dimensions. In terms of autonomy from the first tests, we can expect about 12:30 continuous HD video playback (local) and about 6 hours in current use.
