Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus S509JA-EJ946T
It is an elegant look that it sports with its light silver frame.
The connectivity integrated into this laptop PC is good, consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, an HDMI video output useful for easily connecting this computer to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac modules and Bluetooth 4.1 for remote connections and communications, an audio port but also 2 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers being made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
The screen lends itself well to displaying videos and more generally High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of Asus S509JA-EJ946T
The Asus S509JA-EJ946T is a responsive High Definition compact laptop designed for everyday use.
As it incorporates a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking as well as a low-power Quad Core i5-1035G1 Ice Lake processor, this elegant silver laptop PC delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.
In addition, thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics part integrated into the Quad Core i5 Ice Lake, it is possible to watch photos and videos. However, as the modest Intel UHD 620 does not come with a dedicated graphics card (and its absence is logical given the positioning of this PC), players will go their way.
In any case, thanks to the integrated SSD storage, this lightweight laptop is significantly more responsive and fluid on a daily basis than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we benefit from much faster application launches and starts / stops.
With its 512 GB, the SSD rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity while being much faster, less energy-consuming, more robust and silent.
And if ever 512 GB is too tight, we can add a second SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5 inch slot.
Of course, one can also rely on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
As for battery life, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose weight less than 2 kg facilitates transport which is however not as easy as for an Ultrabook (thinner).
