An inexpensive stylish silver ultrabook , the Asus R515JA-BQ647T with its 15-inch IPS anti-glare Full HD display ready for High Definition content takes advantage of fast 512 GB SSD storage for increased responsiveness. This laptop has 8 GB of RAM coupled with an Intel Quad Core i5 Ice Lake processor for good overall performance, but is not designed for gaming. In any case, this thin and light laptop PC benefits from a USB-C connection.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus R515JA-BQ647T
With its transparent silver frame, thin and light, this Ultrabook has a sober and elegant look.
It is equipped with a good connection consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port without forgetting 3 USB compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a peripheral USB 3.0 is plugged into it.
The screen will be of interest to fans of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition as well as a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, it is more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel. The screen also benefits from IPS technology and therefore its viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, are important. But its colorimetry is average, below that of more high-end IPS panels.
Performance, battery life of the Asus R515JA-BQ647T
The Asus R515JA-BQ647T is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
In fact, it delivers good overall performance that is suitable for a number of users because it has an Intel Ice Lake low consumption Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor associated with a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful for multitasking.
However, as it does not embed a dedicated graphics card, this Ultrabook is not designed to play and more generally is not suitable for heavy graphics work.
However, thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution housed in the Quad Core i5, you can of course watch photos and videos.
This thin and light laptop PC benefits in any case from an SSD storage which clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Thus, thanks to the SSD, we benefit, for example, from much faster application launches and starts / stops.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more energy efficient, more robust 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 for obtaining fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this computer whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the controlled weight, bet on approximately 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
