Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook A512JA-EJ133T
With its refined design and narrow “NanoEdge” screen borders, the Asus Vivobook A512JA-EJ133T is not lacking in charm. Its small weight of 1.6 kg and its compact size (357 x 230 mm) make it the perfect companion for studious outings. Its metallic silver finish is not embellished with any particular finish for a more refined appearance, a mark of elegance and sobriety.
Note that Asus reinforces the back of the aluminum cover for more robustness and that a numeric keypad is swiped on the right side, a detail that is not one for those who regularly enter numbers. Also welcome to facilitate typing in a dark atmosphere, the white backlighting of the keyboard is adjustable on three intensity levels, a significant plus even if it will tend to have the opposite effect during the day (the illegible gray lettering) .
The screen also plays a decisive role in the appearance of the ultrabook and its refined NanoEdge contours will not only increase the feeling of immersion but also allow a 15-inch panel to be slid into a 14-inch chassis. It benefits from a Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) which provides a healthy display density to modulate the display or view High Definition content in the best conditions. In addition, the anti-reflection treatment facilitates viewing in high ambient light but the viewing angles are not very stabilized due to the use of TN and not IPS as is the norm in these prices logically. Note that the which will raise the keyboard base at the opening of the cover, a plus for comfort.
Well distributed, the connectivity brings together the essentials of the interfaces expected at present at this level of range. There is an HDMI output, a microSD card reader and three USB Type-A ports, two of which are still limited by the 2.0 standard. A USB Type-C is also part as well as the Wifi AC and Bluetooth 5.0 modules. There is no fingerprint reader on the menu however.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus VivoBook A512JA-EJ133T
To support all kinds of everyday use, the VivoBook core is powered by a 10th generation (2019) Ice Lake processor, the Core i5-1035G1 Quad Core. Thus, the PC covers all of current use (Web browsing, Office processing, video) with a fairly advanced mastery in more demanding applications using multicore architecture (video editing, light Photoshop …). Attention, we are on low consumption and not powerful processors type -H. In fact, if you try CPU-intensive tasks, you will face more or less harmful latencies.
Special mention for the 12 GB of RAM thanks to which the system will not lose fluidity in multitasking whatever the use involved. It also allows us to see the coming years with confidence.
Another strength of this ultrabook, the preferred storage is both generous in capacity with 1.2 TB combined and gives pride of place to responsiveness. Indeed, a dedicated 256 GB SSD (NVMe PCIe) is on hand, allowing to bring its share of fluidity to Windows 10 and to the overall execution of programs and on the other side, a hard drive of 1 To which offers a large storage latitude for your heavy files.
Finally, autonomy does not really follow the nomadic direction taken by this Asus VivoBook A512JA-EJ133T with only 4 to 5 hours reached Internet browsing with active Wifi. This is below the average for its category.
