Its transport is facilitated by its compactness and its contained weight. Side autonomy, it can hold at least 4 hours on battery in light use.
Among its strengths, note the presence of 8 GB of RAM, more than the average quantity welcome multitasking, especially as it supports a processor showing its limits under CPU intensive software, the Kaby Lake low consumption Pentium Dual Core 4415U.
Such a duo is well suited for everyday use such as office automation and surfing the Internet. As it is not accompanied by a dedicated GPU, graphic processing is here entirely the responsibility of the Intel HD 610 integrated Kaby Lake, which allows to watch photos and videos.
The 16: 9 aspect ratio of the screen lends itself well to this use and the brilliant treatment revives colors but is subject to glare. The screen actually adopts classic specifications for a 14 inch with its definition of 1366×768.
