Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2339W
With its thin and light Peacock Blue design, this Ultrabook sports an original look.
This laptop has a good connectivity composed of 1 USB-C, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communications, an audio port or 2 USB compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in a USB 3.0 device.
Too bad, however, not to have to deal with newer and more powerful Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5 modules.
In any case, many will appreciate that the chiclet keyboard can be backlit so that its keys can be clearly distinguished in case of limited ambient light.
The screen lends itself well to the display of videos and more broadly High Definition content because it adopts a 16/9th format associated with a precise Full HD definition. In addition, as it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable in bright environments (e.g. outside) than a shiny slab. The screen also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology which is however not high-end because here, the colorimetry is standard. In any case, thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more readable in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) than a shiny slab.
Performance, battery life of the Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2339W
The Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2339W is a thin and light High Definition laptop with an original blue design with a large storage capacity and intended for everyday use.
It stands out for the fact that it has a total storage capacity of 1.2 TB above average, enough to house multiple files and software.
In fact, the 256 GB SSD is intended to accommodate the main software in addition to the system, the rest taking place on the 1000 GB hard drive.
The SSD offers the advantage of ensuring a much better responsiveness and fluidity to use than a simple hard disk. Thanks to the SSD, we obtain much faster starts/stops, processing and launch of applications.
The SSD therefore supports very well the heart of this thin and light laptop consisting of a low-power Intel quad Core i5-1035G1 Ice Lake processor and a good amount of RAM of 12 GB above average very useful in multitasking.
This duo delivers good overall performance, especially in everyday use as well as under modest multimedia processing using multi-core and RAM.
Keep in mind, however, that to often perform CPU and/or graphics-intensive work, it is better to turn instead to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
Because no dedicated graphics card is embedded here, all the graphics being entrusted to the care of the Intel UHD 620, graphics solution directly integrated into the Core i5. In short, you can watch photos and videos with this laptop with an original blue design that is not designed for gaming.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight and finesse, count on about 5 hours of operation on battery in light use.
