Chassis, connectivity, screen of the Asus Vivobook S515JA-BQ126T
With its Transparent Silver light silver design, it has a sober and elegant appearance.
The connectivity integrated into this Ultrabook is good, including 1 USB-C, wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 modules for remote connections and communications, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port but also 2 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is plugged into it.
The screen benefits from large horizontal and vertical 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. Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
Performance, battery life of the Asus Vivobook S515JA-BQ126T
The Asus Vivobook S515JA-BQ126T is a responsive compact High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
As it embeds a low-power Intel Quad Core i5-1035G1 Ice Lake processor coupled with a good amount of 8 GB RAM which is very appreciable in multitasking, this elegant silver Ultrabook delivers good overall performance.
However, it is not designed for heavy graphics work like gaming as it does not include a dedicated graphics card. However, thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel UHD 620 solution housed within the processor, you can of course watch photos and videos.
On the storage side, there is an SSD which clearly reinforces the fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Because an SSD is much faster than the latter but also more robust, more energy efficient and silent.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, one obtains much faster starts / stops for example just like the treatments and launches of software.
In terms of capacity, the SSD offers 512 GB, which is similar to the standard of hard drives.
Of course, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the battery life of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the finesse and the controlled weight, expect about 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
