Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus P1400CJA-BV486R
It sports an elegant and discreet design with its thin and light dark silver frame.
This Ultrabook runs on Windows 10 Pro, a more complete system than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools such as BitLocker.
The connectivity integrated into this laptop PC is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output for easily connecting this computer to a TV or monitor for example, from an audio port but also from 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
The chiclet keyboard does not accommodate a numeric keypad on the right for lack of space, like any laptop smaller than 15 inches.
However, to make it easier to enter numbers, Asus offers this Ultrabook its NumberPad technology. So when you need it, you can convert the touchpad into a touch-sensitive numeric keypad.
The screen is anti-reflective which makes it more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. For the rest, it adopts classic characteristics with its definition of 1366×768 and its 16: 9 format lending itself well to video playback.
Performance, battery life of the Asus P1400CJA-BV486R
The Asus P1400CJA-BV486R is a compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
In this field as in office automation and surfing the Internet, it delivers good performance because it is based on a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking as well as a low-power Intel Core i3-1005G1 Ice Lake processor.
However, it should be borne in mind that the latter shows its limits under software that consumes processor resources, like the AMD Ryzen 3 (and of course less powerful processors).
Despite the absence of a dedicated graphics card implying that this Ultrabook is not designed for heavy graphics work like games, it is possible to watch photos and video on this PC thanks to the modest Intel UHD 620 graphics part integrated into the Core i3 Ice Lake.
The integrated SSD storage will appeal to a maximum of users because it clearly enhances the fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, we obtain, for example, much faster start / stop and launch of applications.
This is due to the fact that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more shock resistant and silent.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard drives. But if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose lightness, compactness and finesse facilitate transport.
