Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus VivoBook X412DA-EK181T
Its Clear Silver hinged Transparent Silver chassis with ErgoLift hinge that raises it slightly forward once opened gives it an elegant and discreet but also original allure.
The screen will interest fans of videos and more generally of High Definition content because it adopts a 16: 9 format as well as a precise Full HD definition. As it is anti-reflective, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (ex: outdoor).
This thin and light computer is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or a monitor for example, its wireless modules Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, its audio port and its 2 USB 2.0 compatible USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if connected above a USB 3.0 device.
On the chiclet keyboard side, a priori no key backlighting system.
On the other hand while no numeric keypad is integrated as for all the laptops with the format lower than 15 inches, and this for lack of space, this PC takes advantage of NumberPad technology.
As a reminder, the NumPad is positioned at the touchpad. Depending on the needs, you can use the TouchPad in the conventional way or transform it into a touchpad keypad module, which makes it easier to enter numbers.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus VivoBook X412DA-EK181T
The Asus VivoBook X412DA-EK181T is a compact High Definition laptop for everyday versatile use.
Equipped with an AMD APU processor (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 3500U Quad Core low consumption Picasso and a good amount of 8 GB RAM very appreciable in multitasking, this thin and light computer delivers good general performance which is at even to suit many users.
In addition, the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution housed in the Ryzen is clearly more efficient than the UHD 620 of Intel processors. In fact, the Vega 8 is positioned at the level of an entry-level graphics card.
Therefore, in addition to allowing to view photos and videos, this money laptop is capable of running games that consume little graphics resources.
On a daily basis, responsiveness and fluidity are clearly enhanced thanks to on-board SSD storage compared to a simple hard drive. It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive but also more energy efficient, more shock resistant and silent.
In practice thanks to the SSD, we benefit for example from software launches but also starts / stops much faster than with a hard drive.
However here we find a 256 GB SSD on board, capacity below the standard for hard drives. If enough for many purposes, 256 GB may be too tight for some.
But in this case, there is always the possibility of relying on an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to take advantage of rapid transfers.
As for autonomy, count on about 4 hours on battery in light use for this computer whose transport is facilitated by the compactness, the finesse and the controlled weight.
