Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S17 S712FA-AU809T
With its Clear Silver hinged frame, Transparent Silver with ErgoLift hinge, which raises it slightly forward when opened, it sports an elegant and discreet design.
This thin and light laptop for a 17 inch benefits from a good connection including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, wireless modules Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi -Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port and 3 USB all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if the \’\’ we connect a USB 3.0 device.
The chiclet keyboard is equipped with a practical backlighting system for the keys to better distinguish them in dim light.
The screen is well suited for displaying videos and more generally High Definition content thanks to its 16: 9 format and precise Full HD definition. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more restful for the eyes in prolonged use than a bright slab and more readable in bright surroundings (ex: outdoor). Thanks to its IPS technology, the screen also has large viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, while its colorimetry is medium, lower than that of more high-end IPS panels.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus VivoBook S17 S712FA-AU809T
The Asus VivoBook S17 S712FA-AU809T targets those who want to acquire a relatively compact and lightweight 17-inch laptop with high storage capacity for everyday use.
It clearly stands out with its hybrid storage offering a total capacity of 1.5 TB clearly above average. It consists of a fast 512 GB SSD designed to accommodate the system and software, and a comfortable 1000 GB hard drive to accommodate the rest.
Thanks to the SSD, this laptop is significantly more reactive and fluid in everyday life than if it were equipped with a simple hard drive. In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from faster start / stop and launch of software.
Since it does not carry a dedicated graphics card, this computer is not suitable for heavy graphics work such as games. However, it obviously allows you to view photos and videos thanks to the (modest) benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the processor.
This is a low consumption Quad Core i5-10210U Comet Lake. It is here coupled with a good amount of RAM of 16 GB above the average very significant in multitasking and to see coming to this level.
This duo is able to satisfy many users in terms of general performance. In spite of everything, to regularly perform demanding processing on processor resources, it is better to opt for a PC with a non-low power processor.
Finally with regard to the autonomy of this computer whose weight and finesse facilitate transport for a 17 inch, comfortable format for mainly sedentary use (ex: at home), count on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
