Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S15 S533EQ-BN182T
Rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes, this Ultrabook in Indie Black black / anthracite aluminum design has a sober and elegant look.
It is cooled by 2 IceBlades fans (87 thin 0.2mm crystal-liquid polymer blades) and offers 3 preconfigured operating modes: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (silent, economical).
Thin and light, this versatile laptop PC is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, for example, ax Wi-Fi modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless remote connections and communications, its audio port as well as its 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
With its Enter key outlined in yellow, the keyboard is original and can be backlit, which is practical to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen has significant viewing angles, both vertically and horizontally. However, its colorimetry is average, lower than that of higher-end IPS panels. In any case, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook S15 S533EQ-BN182T
The Asus VivoBook S15 S533EQ-BN182T is for those who are looking for a lightweight 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.
Nomads will indeed appreciate being able to transport this PC quite easily, for example with the provided bag, because it is thin while its weight is contained. Above all, it can last about 9 hours on battery in light use in terms of battery life.
To do this, this versatile Ultrabook relies in particular on NVIDIA Optimus technology.
It assesses graphics needs in real time and as a function, switches automatically and in real time if necessary between the Iris Xe solution (which we have tested) integrated into the processor and the dedicated GeForce MX350 card.
Optimus gives maximum preference to the Intel Iris Xe because it is energy efficient and favors battery life compared to the more demanding and slightly more efficient GeForce MX350.
Both allow you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles that do not require too much graphic resources.
The Iris Xe is more precisely integrated into the low-power Intel Quad Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake Intel processor, here associated with 8 GB of RAM to provide good overall performance suitable for many users.
However, it is better to turn to a PC with a non-low consumption processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card if you plan to often perform work that requires processor and / or graphics resources.
SSD storage, if it offers a capacity of 512 GB in phase with the standard of hard disks, clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to the latter.
Because it is silent while being more impact resistant, more energy efficient and much faster.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from software launches, processing and starts / stops much faster than with a simple hard drive for example, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Of course, if 512 GB is too small a capacity, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
