Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus ZenBook UX433FAC-A5290R
It sports an elegant and discreet design with its original Icicle Silver light silver chassis thanks to its ErgoLift hinge which raises it slightly forward when opened to improve its cooling. It is also intended to be robust since it complies with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G.
The screen is well suited for displaying High Definition content and particularly for videos because of its precise Full HD definition and its 16: 9 format. Thanks to its IPS technology, it reproduces colors more faithfully than average while ensuring comfortable horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny screen.
Above the screen sits an infrared webcam, technology allowing authentication on the system by facial recognition via Windows Hello technology.
Here the system is more precisely Windows 10 Pro, more complete edition than Windows 10 classic with its advanced network management and security tools like BitLocker.
On the connection side, this Ultrabook is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C, its wireless Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi ac modules to communicate and connect remotely, its practical HDMI video output in order to easily connect it to a monitor or a TV for example, its audio port without forgetting its 2 USB including 1 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers taking place up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device .
Of course, the chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical for distinguishing its keys in a dim light environment.
Like any computer smaller than 15 inches, this Ultrabook does not include a numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard for lack of space.
But it offers the NumberPad functionality: the touchpad can either be used as a classic touchpad and you can activate the NumPad mode to benefit instead, when you need it, from a practical touch pad for entering numbers.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus ZenBook UX433FAC-A5290R
The Asus ZenBook UX433FAC-A5290R is for those who are looking for a compact and lightweight High Definition laptop for everyday mobile use.
With its weight which barely crosses the Kilo bar, its compactness and its finesse, this Ultrabook is easy to transport. It will be all the more appreciated by nomads as it can last about 10 hours on battery in light use.
To offer such autonomy, this elegant Ultrabook relies in particular on energy-efficient components.
This is the case with its 8 GB of RAM and its Quad Core i5-10210U low-consumption Comet Lake processor. This duo delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users.
Keep in mind, however, that to regularly perform demanding work in processor resources, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low power processor.
More energy efficient than a hard drive but also silent, more robust and much faster, on-board SSD storage has the advantage of ensuring significantly more fluid and responsive operation.
Thanks to SSD, we therefore benefit from much faster software start / stop and launch.
Here, we also benefit from a 512 GB SSD, a capacity rivaling hard drives.
However if this proves to be too fair, you can always use an external storage unit like a USB 3.0 device to benefit from fast transfers.
