Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus S415JA-EK128T
With its fine and light light silver design, it has a sober and elegant look.
It is equipped with good connectivity including 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for connections and communications to distance, an audio port but also 2 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
The chiclet keyboard cannot be backlit and does not accommodate on the right of numeric keypad like any laptop smaller than 15 inches.
However, Asus has the good idea here to provide its NumberPad (NumPad) technology which allows the touchpad to be converted into a tactile numeric keypad when it is needed to enter numbers more easily.
With its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 aspect ratio, the screen lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Asus S415JA-EK128T
The Asus S415JA-EK128T is a responsive High Definition compact laptop designed for everyday use.
This Ultrabook actually delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users because it incorporates a good amount of 8 GB RAM coupled with an Intel Ice Lake low power Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor.
On the other hand, as no dedicated graphics card is on-board here, this thin and light laptop PC is not suitable for heavy graphics work such as games. However, thanks to the modest Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Quad Core i5 Ice Lake, you can watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, we find a silent SSD but also less energy than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD in practice, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches for example.
Here we find a 256 GB SSD, sufficient capacity if you want to store and install files and light software. On the other hand, it is inferior to the standard of hard disks.
But in case more space is needed, an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device can be used to benefit from fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose controlled weight, compactness and finesse facilitate transport.
