Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S14 S435
Rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes, this thin and light laptop with Deep Green design with green shell and lower silver sports a sober and original look.
It is cooled by 2 IceBlades fans (87 thin 0.2mm crystal-liquid polymer blades), an 8mm heat pipe or air vents. It offers 3 predefined operating modes between which you can switch via the Fn F key combination: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (silent, thrifty).
This versatile Ultrabook has good connectivity with its 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (against 1 maximum usually), its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communications, its audio port as well as its 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 you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
A priori the keyboard can not be backlit but it is to be confirmed.
In any case, a NumPad numeric keypad module (NumberPad) should be present to facilitate the entry of numbers by converting the touchpad into a touchpad when needed.
Note in this regard that there is not enough space on the right of the keyboard to accommodate a numeric keypad under computers whose format is less than 15 inches.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16/9th format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a shiny slab in a bright environment (e.g. outside).
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook S14 S435
The Asus VivoBook S14 S435 is a compact High Definition laptop designed for versatile everyday mobile use.
It delivers good overall performance able to satisfy many users because it integrates a Quad Core i5-1135G7 low-power Tiger Lake Intel processor coupled with 8 GB of RAM.
In addition, the Core i5 directly embeds theIntel Iris Xe (which we tested),graphics part whose performance is significantly higher than that of the classic Intel UHD 620.
Thanks to the Iris Xe, you can watch photos and videos but also play titles that are not too greedy in 3D resources.
As for storage, there is a silent SSD but also more robust than a hard disk, more energy efficient and much faster.
Concretely, the SSD guarantees a much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster software launches as well as starts/stops and processing, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, similar to what hard drives offer as standard. However, in the event that you need more space, you can obviously rely on an external storage unit such as a Thunderbolt/USB 3.0/USB-C device to get fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, count on about 8 hours of operation on battery in light use for this versatile Ultrabook whose lightness, compactness and finesse facilitate transport.
