Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook 15 S512JA-BQ1018T
It sports a sober and elegant design with its thin and light light silver frame.
This versatile Ultrabook 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 connections and communications remote, 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.
Good point, the chiclet keyboard has a practical backlighting system for the keys to distinguish them correctly in the event of reduced ambient light.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook 15 S512JA-BQ1018T
The Asus VivoBook 15 S512JA-BQ1018T is a thin and light responsive High Definition laptop for everyday general-purpose use.
Thanks to its SSD storage, its responsiveness is clearly enhanced on a daily basis compared to a hard drive.
Because compared to the latter, remember that an SSD is much faster but also less energy, more resistant to shocks and silent.
Obviously if the 512 GB offered by the SSD – capacity corresponding to the standard of hard disks – prove to be too low, we can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
Result thanks to the SSD, one benefits for example from starts / stops, treatments and launches of software much faster or even from a faster arrival on the cards of the online games.
Because despite the lack of a dedicated on-board graphics card, you can watch photos and videos on this stylish silver versatile Ultrabook as well as play titles that aren’t too greedy in graphics resources.
This is thanks to the performance of the Intel Iris Plus G7 graphics solution (which we tested) which is clearly superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
The Iris Plus G7 is integrated into the Quad Core i7-1065G7, Ice Lake low consumption processor. It is here associated with 8 GB of RAM.
Thus with this thin and light laptop PC, we obtain good general performances capable of satisfying many users.
That being said, if one aims to often perform work that requires processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the controlled weight, bet on approximately 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
