60% rechargeable in 49 minutes, this thin and light versatile laptop sports a sleek and discreet look with its clear silver Transparent Silver design.
Its cooling is provided by 2 fans (87 thin blades of 0.2mm crystal-liquid polymer), heat pipes and air vents. In addition, 3 predefined operating modes are available: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (silent, thrifty).
The connectivity integrated into this laptop is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for wireless connections and remote communications, an audio port or 3 USB all compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensures transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
However, we regret not having to deal with a more recent wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5.0).
A backlight system equips the chiclet keyboard in any case which is convenient so that we can better distinguish its keys when the ambient light is limited.
The screen is adorned with a DCI-P3 OLED panel which implies much more faithful colors than average with deep blacks, very low latency without forgetting important viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Clearly, enough to seduce demanding users want a good display quality, especially to watch videos because of the 16/9th format and more generally high definition content since we are dealing with a Full HD screen. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab.
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook S15 OLED S533UA-L1216T
The Asus VivoBook S15 OLED S533UA-L1216T is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop for versatile everyday mobile use.
The overall performance it provides is able to satisfy many users as it incorporates an AMD Hexa Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne processor paired with 8GB of RAM.
In addition to the fact that it is appreciable to carry out from time to time modest treatments exploiting the multi-core, the Ryzen 5 AMD Hexa Core has the advantage of housing within it the Radeon Vega 7. This graphics solution allows you to watch photos and videos, and even play light titles.
SSD storage clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Because it is much faster but also less energy-consuming, more robust and silent.
In practice, the SSD guarantees in particular starts/stops, processing and launching applications much faster than a hard disk, or a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD here integrated offers a capacity similar to that of hard drives as standard. Of course in case you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy, count on about 6 hours of operation on battery in light use for this versatile mobile computer as easy to carry as an Ultrabook because of its thinness and its contained weight.
