Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S14 S433EA-EB855T
It sports a design that is both elegant, discreet and original with its transparent silver light silver frame which rises slightly towards the front when opened.
This versatile Ultrabook is cooled by 2 IceBlades fans (87 thin 0.2mm blades in crystal-liquid polymer) associated with heat pipes.
Rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes offers several operating modes depending on the use: Performance (for maximum power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (silent, economical).
This thin and light laptop PC is equipped with good connectivity consisting of 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for connections and wireless remote communications, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port but also 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, with USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit which is very valuable to better distinguish its keys in case of limited ambient light. Small originality, the Enter key is outlined in yellow.
In addition, as with any laptop PC whose format is less than 14 inches, there is no physical numeric keypad due to lack of space.
On the other hand, to make it easier to enter numbers, Asus offers its NumberPad (NumPad) technology here. Thanks to it, when needed, you can convert the touchpad into a touch-sensitive numeric keypad.
Thanks to its IPS technology and its 100% sRGB characteristic, the screen offers large horizontal and vertical viewing angles as well as more faithful than average colorimetry. In addition, it lends itself well to displaying High Definition content such as videos due to its 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 S14 S433EA-EB855T
The Asus VivoBook S14 S433EA-EB855T is a compact 14-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
It delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users because it incorporates a good amount of 8 GB RAM associated with an Intel Tiger Lake processor Quad Core i5-1135G7 consumption.
In addition, thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics part (tested by us) integrated into the Quad Core i5, you can watch photos and videos but also run games that are not too demanding in terms of graphics resources.
Because the performances of the Iris Xe are clearly superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
As for storage, Asus here chooses an SSD whose capacity of 512 GB corresponds to the standard offered by hard disks.
But compared to the latter, let us emphasize that an SSD offers several advantages: lower energy consumption, silence, greater robustness and greater speed.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.
Thanks to the SSD, for example, we benefit from much faster software launches as well as start / stop and processing, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Of course, if 512 GB is too tight, we can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C / Thunderbolt device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
As for battery life, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this versatile Ultrabook whose lightness, compactness and finesse make it easy to transport.
