Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus X509JA-EJ016T
With its light silver frame, it sports an elegant and discreet design.
This light computer is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its HDMI video output useful in order to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its wireless modules Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 for remote connections and communications, its audio port or its 2 USB 2.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
The screen will appeal to lovers of High Definition content and in particular videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition superior to the 1366×768 standard, as well as a 16: 9 format. The screen is also anti-reflective. As a result, it turns out to be more readable than a shiny panel in a light environment (ex: outdoor).
Performance, autonomy of the Asus X509JA-EJ016T
The Asus X509JA-EJ016T is a lightweight High Definition laptop for everyday use.
In this area as in surfing on the Internet and office automation, it delivers good benefits because it is based on a Core i3-1005G1 (Turbo) processor with low consumption Ice Lake. Remember that a Core i3 Turbo is significantly more efficient than a non-Core i3 Core (Core i3-7xxxU and lower), but shows its limits in applications that consume processor resources.
In addition, the Core i3 Ice Lake is here coupled with a standard 4 GB RAM which is suitable for multitasking content. To be more comfortable in this area, we will add a RAM module on the free slot.
Logically at this price level, no graphics card is on board. As a result, this PC is not designed for demanding graphics work such as gaming. It nevertheless allows of course to view photos and videos thanks to the benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution mode integrated into the Core i3 Turbo.
In terms of storage, Asus here chooses an SSD guaranteeing significantly more responsive and fluid operation than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from application launches and much faster starts / stops.
It must be said that an SSD is silent but also more energy efficient than a hard drive, more shock resistant and much faster. With its 256 GB, the on-board SSD offers sufficient capacity for a number of uses but which may be too tight for some.
If you need additional space, you can always use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, count on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer which is certainly not as easily transportable as an Ultrabook but whose weight less than 2 Kg nevertheless facilitates transport.
