Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus VivoBook S14 S433IA-EB741T
With its black shell chassis and dark gray interior, this thin and light laptop, which can be recharged to 60% in 49 minutes, has a low-profile look.
This versatile compact laptop PC has a good connection made up of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect remotely without -wire, a useful HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port but also 3 USBs compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to ‘at 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful for distinguishing its keys in low ambient light.
It comes with a NumberPad (NumPad) touch pad module which is activated at the touchpad. This feature is useful for entering numbers on a regular basis, while like any laptop PC smaller than 14 inches, there is not enough space to the right of the keyboard to accommodate a physical numeric keypad.
As it adopts IPS technology, the screen has large horizontal and vertical viewing angles. It is adorned with a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition making it also very well suited to the display of videos and more generally to High Definition content. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of Asus VivoBook S14 S433IA-EB741T
The Asus VivoBook S14 S433IA-EB741T is a compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
The general performance it delivers is able to suit many users as it relies on a good amount of 16 GB RAM above the average very appreciable in multitasking as well as an Octo Core AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 4700U low consumption Renoir.
However, it should be kept in mind that to often perform graphics work requiring processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor.
In any case, while it does not include a dedicated graphics card, this versatile laptop PC is capable of running low-consumption games while of course allowing photos and videos to be viewed. This is thanks to the benefits of the Radeon Vega 7 solution.
Housed in the Octo Core Ryzen 7 Renoir, the Vega 7 is significantly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors and is positioned at the level of a dedicated entry-level graphics card.
As for storage, Asus opts here for SSD storage. It rivals hard drives in terms of capacity thanks to its 512 GB while being silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we get much faster starts / stops, treatments and launches of software / games 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 device then represents an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile laptop as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness, expect around 7 hours of battery operation in light use.
