The Asus VivoBook 14 M413DA-EB478T is a versatile laptop computer equipped with a NumberPad numeric keypad module, a 14-inch Full HD anti-glare IPS screen ready for High Definition or even a USB-C connection. This thin and light laptop PC performs well in everyday use thanks to its 8 GB of RAM and its AMD Ryzen 5 Quad Core Picasso processor whose Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution is capable of running low-consumption games.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook 14 M413DA-EB478T
With its thin and light blue design with ErgoLift hinge that raises it slightly forward when opened, this laptop has an original look and yet relatively unobtrusive.
The connectivity integrated into this versatile laptop PC is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth modules 4.2 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 taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
As with any laptop whose format is less than 15 inches, there is insufficient space on the right of the keyboard to accommodate a numeric keypad.
But to make it easier to enter numbers, Asus offers its NumberPad (NumPad) technology here. It allows, when needed, to transform the touchpad into a tactile numeric keypad.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large viewing angles, both vertically and horizontally. Its colorimetry is however average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because it adopts a precise Full HD definition associated with a 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook 14 M413DA-EB478T
The Asus VivoBook 14 M413DA-EB478T is a compact High Definition laptop in an original colourway intended for everyday general use.
It relies on a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very useful in multitasking as well as an AMD Quad Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) processor low consumption Ryzen 5 3500U Picasso.
This core delivers good general performance capable of satisfying a number of users. And all the more so since it allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles that do not consume much graphic resources.
How? ‘Or’ What ? Thanks to the Radeon Vega 8 integrated into the Ryzen 5 Quad Core, a graphics solution whose performance is superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620 of Intel processors.
The integrated SSD storage clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness to use compared to a simple hard drive. Because it is much faster but also more resistant to shocks, less energy and silent.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops as well as software launches and treatments, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here the SSD offers 512 GB of capacity, which corresponds to the standard of hard disks. However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
As for the battery life, bet on about 4 hours on battery in light use for this computer whose compactness, the smoothness and the weight contained make it as easily transportable as an Ultrabook.
