With its transparent silver light silver design, this thin and light laptop, rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes, has a sleek and understated look.
Its cooling is entrusted to 2 fans (87 thin 0.2mm blades in crystal-liquid polymer) and ventilation grilles. It offers 3 operating modes: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (silent, economical).
This versatile laptop PC is equipped with a good connection including 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for wireless remote connections and communications, one audio port but also 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 device 3.0 is plugged into it.
Too bad, however, not to be dealing with more recent Wi-Fi and Bluetooth standards, such as Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5.0.
In any case, many people will appreciate being able to backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in the event of limited ambient light. Small originality, the Enter key is outlined in yellow.

Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook S15 S533UA-BQ020T
The Asus VivoBook S15 S533UA-BQ020T is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use on the go.
The general performance it provides is able to satisfy many users because it is based on 8 GB of RAM and especially an AMD Octo Core processor, the APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5700U low consumption Lucienne.
The latter is appreciable for carrying out small processing operations exploiting the multicore. But to often perform work that requires processor and / or graphics resources, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low-power processor and / or an appropriate dedicated graphics card.
Because this thin and light laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card. Despite everything, thanks to the performance of the Radeon Vega 8 solution housed within the Ryzen 7 Octo Core, superior to those of the classic UHD 620 of Intel processors, you can watch photos and videos on this computer but also play little titles. greedy in graphic resources.
On the storage side, there is an SSD guaranteeing much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Because an SSD is silent but also more resistant to shocks, less energy and much faster.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops, processing and software launches, or even faster arrival on the cards of online games.
With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity similar to the standard of hard disks.
What if we 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 battery life, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer as easily transportable as an Ultrabook thanks to its thinness and its weight contained.
