3 operating modes are offered under this computer: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (silent, economical).
The connectivity integrated into this laptop PC will interest a maximum of users because it includes 1 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4 (rare for the moment), Wi-Fi ax modules ( more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) and Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this Ultrabook to a TV or monitor for example, an audio port without forgetting 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, l ‘USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers made up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
The chiclet keyboard has a practical backlighting system for the keys to distinguish them correctly in low light. Its Enter key is outlined in yellow which brings a touch of originality.
Like any laptop whose format is below 15 inches, this computer skips a numeric keypad for lack of space.
However, to make it easier to enter numbers, Asus has the good idea to integrate its NumberPad (NumPad) technology here, thanks to which you can convert the touchpad into a touchscreen numeric keypad when you need it.
The screen offers it a more faithful than average colorimetry as well as important viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to its 100% sRGB and IPS specifications.

Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook S14 S433EA-EB778T
The Asus VivoBook S14 S433EA-EB778T targets those who wish to acquire a compact 14-inch High Definition laptop PC for versatile on-the-go use.
It benefits from a good amount of 16 GB RAM above the average very appreciable in multitasking, coupled with a Quad Core i7-1165G7 Intel Tiger Lake low consumption processor.
Thus, the general performance provided by this thin and light laptop PC is able to satisfy many users.
That being said to often carry out heavy work in 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.
That being said, we can run games that are not too greedy in 3D resources on this Ultrabook thanks to the performance of the Intel Iris Xe solution (which we tested) superior to those of the classic Intel UHD 620.
Of course, one can also watch photos and videos on this sleek silver laptop that takes advantage of SSD storage. This clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Because an SSD is much faster but also more robust, less energy-consuming and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we benefit from much faster starts / stops than with a simple hard drive, but also from processing and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.
Here we are dealing with a 512 GB SSD, a capacity in phase with the standard of hard disks. But if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt device then represents an interesting solution to obtain fast transfers.
Finally in terms of battery life, expect around 8 hours of battery operation in light use for this versatile Ultrabook whose lightness, compactness and finesse make it easy to transport.
