Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook S433EA-EB424T
It has an elegant and discreet look with its Transparent Silver aluminum frame.
This Ultrabook is cooled by 2 IceBlades fans (87 thin 0.2mm blades in crystal-liquid polymer)
Rechargeable to 60% in 49 minutes offers several operating modes according to needs: Performance (for maximum power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (quiet, economical).
This thin and light laptop PC has a good connection consisting of 1 USB-C, a practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, ax Wi-Fi modules ( more recent and performance than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless remote connections and communications, an audio port as well as 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 you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
The keys of the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful for distinguishing them in case of limited ambient light.
However, the presence of a NumberPad is far from certain since Asus does not advertise it for this specific model unlike Boulanger.
In any case, lovers of videos and more generally of High Definition content will be interested in the fact that the screen adopts a 16: 9 format and a precise Full HD definition. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, battery life of Asus Vivobook S433EA-EB424T
The Asus Vivobook S433EA-EB424T is a compact 14-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday general-purpose use.
In this area, it delivers good performance able to suit many users as it relies on 8 GB of RAM coupled with an Intel Quad Core i5-1135G7 low power Tiger Lake processor.
The latter houses within it the Intel Iris Xe graphics part (tested by us) which allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles not too greedy in graphic resources.
Because the Iris Xe is much more powerful than the traditional Intel UHD 620.
However, if one often wishes to carry out heavy processing in terms of processor and / or graphics resources, it is better to turn to a PC equipped with a non-low consumption processor and / or an adequate dedicated graphics card.
The on-board SSD storage clearly reinforces the responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a hard drive. Thus, thanks to the SSD, we get starts / stops, treatments and launches of applications much faster than with a hard disk, and we arrive for example faster on the cards of online games.
An SSD is indeed much faster than a hard drive but also less energy, more robust and silent. With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks.
But if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
n fact, the SSD is here coupled to a 32 GB Optane module, which cannot be used for storage, via an Intel Optane H10 solution that they tested .
If the presence of Optane offers an undeniable contribution when it is coupled to a hard drive, the difference is insignificant when it is associated with an SSD.
As for battery life, bet on about 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose lightness, finesse and compactness facilitate transport.
