Chassis, Connectivity, Display of Asus VivoBook S531FA-BQ025T
It has an original Rose Gold design with its dark pink shell and pale pink interior, especially as it adopts the ErgoLift hinge which raises it 3.5 ° forward when opened to improve its cooling.
Rechargeable 60% in 49 minutes, it also has the technology Asus Eye Care to reduce up to 30% blue light emitted by the screen.
This Ultrabook has a good connection including 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, Wi-Fi ac wireless modules and Bluetooth 4.2 for connections and remote communications, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect to a TV or a monitor for example, an audio port and 3 USB all compatible both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug on a USB 3.0 device.
The chiclet keyboard can also be backlit which is convenient to distinguish its keys in case of reduced ambient light.
In addition, this thin and light computer has an infrared webcam for identification on the system by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
With its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content including videos. Its antireflection treatment makes it more legible than a glossy slab in a bright environment (ex: outdoor).
Performance, autonomy of Asus VivoBook S531FA-BQ025T
The Asus VivoBook S531FA-BQ025T is a compact 15-inch High Definition notebook with an original design designed for everyday use.
It is able to satisfy many users in terms of overall performance thanks to its Whiskey Lake low-power Quad Core i5-8265U processor and its 8 GB of RAM.
This Ultrabook will appeal especially as it is very responsive daily because it has a SSD storage. The SSD guarantees a much more fluid and responsive operation than a hard disk. Startup / shutdowns and software launches are faster.
Remember that compared to a hard drive, a SSD is much faster while being less energy, more robust and quiet. In addition here we have a 512 GB SSD that rivals the hard drives in terms of capacity, which is still too infrequent.
On the other hand, the players and more generally those who intend to carry out heavy work in graphic resources will pass their way because this Ultrabook makes the impasse on a dedicated GPU. It allows, of course, to watch photos and videos thanks to the modest benefits of the Intel UHD 620 part integrated into the Quad Core i5.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the weight under the bar of 2 kg and the finesse, plan about 4 hours of battery operation in light use.
