Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus P1504JA-EJ123R
With its anthracite frame, it sports a sober and professional design but also original thanks to its ErgoLift hinge which raises it 2 ° forward.
The connectivity built into this Ultrabook is good, including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port, a useful HDMI video output in order to connect it easily to a TV or monitor for example as well as 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if connects a USB 3.0 device to it. Good point, a USB to RJ-45 adapter is present to take advantage of Ethernet.
This Ultrabook runs on Windows 10 Pro, a system offering more functionality than classic Windows 10 with its advanced network management and security tools like BitLocker.
To attract professionals, you can authenticate by fingerprint recognition on this system via Windows Hello technology thanks to the integrated biometric reader.
A priori however, no backlight system of the chiclet keyboard, which will disappoint some.
The screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content and in particular videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, it is more readable in a light environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus P1504JA-EJ123R
The Asus P1504JA-EJ123R is a compact 15 inch laptop for everyday versatile use.
It delivers good general performance able to satisfy many users thanks to its 8 GB of RAM and its low consumption Ice Lake processor .
The latter has the advantage of housing within it the graphics solution Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 significantly more efficient than the traditional Intel UHD 620. The Iris Plus Graphics G7 is actually lower than the dedicated card GeForce MX250. It therefore allows you to play titles that consume little graphic resources and of course to watch photos and videos.
The storage is here entrusted to a 512 GB SSD which competes with hard disks in terms of capacity while being silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, we benefit from daily operation that is significantly more responsive and fluid than with a simple hard drive, which translates for example into application launches and much faster starts / stops.
And in the event that 512 GB is too tight, it is of course possible to rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for autonomy, count on about 5 hours on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose finesse and controlled weight facilitate its transport.
