Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus S416JA-EB738T
It sports a priori a blue design but the sources contradict each other and it could ultimately be white. Either way, this laptop is thin and light.
It has 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 remote connections and communications , an audio port but also 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug a USB 3.0 device into it.
Good point, the chiclet keyboard is adorned with a practical key backlighting solution to better distinguish them in case of limited ambient light.
The screen will be of interest to fans of videos and more broadly High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition. In addition, since it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel. Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. However, here the colorimetry is average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels.
Performance, battery life of the Asus S416JA-EB738T
The Asus S416JA-EB738T is a compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
It benefits from a good amount of 16 GB RAM, which is very useful in multitasking, which advantageously accompanies the Quad Core i5-1035G1, an Intel Ice Lake low consumption processor.
The general performance provided by this duo is able to satisfy a number of users… but not gamers and more generally those who often wish to carry out work that consumes CPU resources.
However, we can obviously watch photos and videos with this Ultrabook thanks to the Intel UHD 620, a modest graphics solution integrated into the Quad Core i5.
On the storage side, we find an SSD that rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being less energy intensive, more robust, silent and much faster.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis than a simple hard drive, which implies in particular much faster starts / stops and software launches as well as processing.
Obviously in the event that 512 GB is too tight, we can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to obtain fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the compactness, finesse and lightness, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
