Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus R415JA-BV1155T
It has a sober and elegant look with its fine and light light silver design.

This Ultrabook benefits from a good connection made up of 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for remote connections and communications, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example, an audio port or even 2 USBs 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 device 3.0 is plugged into it.
The screen adopts a definition of 1366×768 associated with a 16 / 9th format, in short the classic specifications for a 14 inches. However, it stands out for its anti-reflective treatment, which makes it less tiring for the eyes over a long period of time than a shiny panel and more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Asus R415JA-BV1155T
The Asus R415JA-BV1155T is a responsive compact laptop for everyday use.
In this field, as in Internet surfing and office automation, this thin and light laptop PC delivers good performance because it embeds a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking as well as a low-power Intel Core i3 Ice Lake processor. -1005G1.
Thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics part integrated into the latter, you can watch photos and videos. But since this modest solution is not backed up by a dedicated graphics card, logically given its positioning, this sleek silver Ultrabook is not suitable for heavy graphics work such as games.
It also shows its limits under software that is greedy in processor resources, like the AMD Ryzen 3 and less powerful processors of course.
As for storage, Asus opts here for an SSD that stands out from a hard drive by its silence, greater robustness and lower energy consumption, not to mention its greater speed.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops as well as application launches.
If 256 GB is enough to store and install files and lightweight software, that’s a capacity less than half that of standard hard drives.
In the event that more space is needed, however, an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device can be used for fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the lightness, the compactness and the smoothness, bet on approximately 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
