Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus VivoBook S17 S712JA-AU151T
It sports a sober and elegant design with its ErgoLift hinged Transparent Silver frame that raises it slightly forward when opened.
The connectivity integrated into this thin and light laptop PC is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, with an audio port as well as 3 USBs all compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times more faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
A backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is useful for distinguishing its keys in case of limited ambient light.
The screen benefits from comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology. It also lends itself very well to the display of High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. As it is anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in bright surroundings while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of Asus VivoBook S17 S712JA-AU151T
The Asus VivoBook S17 S712JA-AU151T is a relatively thin and light large format notebook PC designed for everyday use and offering a large storage space.
Thanks to its hybrid solution, we get here no less than 1.2 TB of total capacity, which is much higher than the average.
The storage consists of a 256 GB SSD intended to accommodate the system as well as the main software, but also a hard drive with a large capacity of 1000 GB to accommodate the rest, such as multiple files and software.
On a daily basis, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a hard drive. In practice, the SSD ensures much faster software launches and starts / stops.
The SSD therefore goes well with the heart of this computer made up of 8 GB of RAM and a low-consumption Ice Lake Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor. This duo delivers good overall performance suitable for many users.
However, those who often wish to carry out work requiring processor resources will benefit from opting instead for a PC based on a non-low consumption processor.
In addition, gamers will go their way just like those who wish to perform heavy graphics processing. Because this thin and light laptop does not have a dedicated graphics card. Nevertheless, it obviously allows you to watch photos and videos thanks to the (modest) benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Core i5 Ice Lake.
This Ultrabook has the advantage of seeing its transport facilitated for a 17 inch thanks to its finesse and its controlled weight. This large format is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home).
Finally side battery life, this laptop can last about 6 hours on battery in light use.
