Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S15 S533EA-BQ156T
This Ultrabook, which can be recharged to 60% in 49 minutes, has an elegant and discreet look with its light silver aluminum Transparent Silver design.
It is cooled by 2 fans (87 thin 0.2mm blades in crystal-liquid polymer) and ventilation grilles. 3 preset operating modes are available: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (quiet, economical).
This thin and light laptop PC has a good connection with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for connections and communications wireless remote, its audio port without forgetting its 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
The chiclet keyboard is adorned with a backlighting system of the welcome keys so that they are better distinguished when the ambient light is reduced.
The yellow diversion of the Enter key brings a touch of originality.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has large viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Its colorimetry is however average, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels. In any case, thanks to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos. Anti-reflective coating, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook S15 S533EA-BQ156T
The Asus VivoBook S15 S533EA-BQ156T is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile use on the go.
It benefits from a good amount of 16 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking which goes well with the processor, an Intel Tiger Lake low consumption Quad Core i5-1135G7.
The general performance delivered by this core is able to satisfy many users.
And all the more so since the Intel Iris Xe graphics part integrated into the Tiger Lake Quad Core i5 is significantly more efficient than the classic Intel UHD 620.
As a result, in addition to being able to watch photos and videos , we have the possibility of playing titles not too demanding in graphic resources with this thin and light laptop PC while it does not embed a graphics card.
But we will rather prefer a mobile computer with a dedicated GPU and / or a non-low-power processor if we plan to often do work that consumes graphics and / or processor resources.
As for storage, Asus has chosen an SSD which has the advantage of being silent but also more robust than a hard drive, more energy efficient and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we obtain much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. For example, we benefit from much faster software launches as well as processing and starts / stops, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here we find a 512 GB SSD, which corresponds to the standard among hard disks. However, if the space is insufficient, an external storage unit can be used. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this versatile Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and controlled weight, expect around 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
