Do you store in mass and need a fast laptop to sort all your data? Look at the side of the Asus VivoBook S712FA-AU593T. This 17 inch laptop with an ultrabook look leaves no one behind (except players) thanks to its productive configuration bringing together a 10th generation Core i7 Quad Core, 16 GB of RAM and no less than 1.5 TB of storage shared between a dedicated 512 GB SSD and a 1 TB hard drive, enough to work in excellent conditions. Opposite, a IPS Full HD screen with fine borders, a numeric keypad and a backlit keyboard for the pleasure. Know all the same that it will not be necessary to expect much from its autonomy.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook S712FA-AU593T
Asus installs its Asus S712FA-AU593T in a compact chassis, with the air of big 15 inches. On the front of the stage, its compact format 406 x 253 mm and its finesse of 21 mm which guide it towards a little mobility. Then, the aesthetics opt for an elegant sober and smooth silver on the entire shell, except around the keyboard with an embossed effect, and drawn edges. The assembly is correct even if the plastic predominates and the sleek silhouette of the PC is welcome. Note that the keyboard is backlit , a plus for working in a dark environment.
Around the screen, Asus sought to slightly refine the borders but without doing so in the borderless, which does not detract from the charm of the ultrabook. It benefits from a Full HD definition (1920 x 1080 px) which provides a healthy display density to view content in High Definition in the best conditions. On the other hand, the IPS panel works to open the viewing angles and faithfully reproduce the colors while the mat treatment of the panel acts as a barrier to reflections linked to use in high ambient light. A plus for comfort.
Well distributed, the connectivity brings together the essentials of the interfaces expected at present at this level of range. There is an HDMI output, a microSD card reader and three USB Type-A ports, two of which are still limited by the 2.0 standard. A USB Type-C is also part as well as the Wifi AC and Bluetooth 4.1 modules. No fingerprint reader provided by cons but a numeric keypad that makes up the backlit keyboard , a plus.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus VivoBook S712FA-AU593T
Storage is the most critical element inside this configuration since it offers all the space you may need, while ensuring system responsiveness. On the one hand, the dedicated 512 GB SSD (NVMe PCIe) is responsible for hosting the operating system and all programs and games and contributing to more responsive execution, shorter loading times and an overall brighter environment. On the other hand, the 1 TB hard drive (5400 rpm) will provide a large capacity allowing to archive a large amount of data in addition.
The heart of the VivoBook S712FA-AU593T is powered by a 10th generation (2019) Comet Lake processor , a Core i7-10510U . If the gain is not significant compared to the 9th generation Core i7-8565U (Whiskey Lake), the PC stays one step ahead. It leaves no work aside and covers all of current use (web browsing, Office processing, video) with a mastery of more demanding applications, using multicore architecture (video editing, Photoshop .. .). And to ensure perfect fluidity in multitasking, no less than 16 GB of RAM is provided. It is ideal at this level to calmly welcome the next years.
There is no dedicated graphics card inside the ultrabook but it can still count on the Intel UHD 620 chip integrated in the processor to ensure a minimum of game. Estimated at the level of a GeForce MX110, it will allow certain occasional players to launch a few undemanding titles in Full HD with great fluidity.
Finally, autonomy is probably not the strength of our VivoBook S712FA-AU593T even if its design lets dream of a little mobility. Its small battery does not offer much more than 4 to 5 hours of autonomy in Internet browsing with active Wifi.
