This versatile multimedia-oriented laptop has great connectivity options including 1 USB-C, a convenient HDMI video output for easily connecting it to a TV or monitor, such as Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi ac wireless modules (How unfortunate it is not to find newer and more efficient Bluetooth 5 and Wi-Fi 6-axis modules!) to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port or even 3 USB including 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), which guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
Those who want to preserve their privacy will appreciate being able to push a physical cover in front of the webcam.
Of course, it is possible to backlight the keys on the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in low ambient light.
Do you need colors that appear much more faithful than average with very deep blacks, wide viewing angles and very low latency? It offers the screen here, which is adorned with OLED DCI-P3 specifications. It is also very suitable for viewing High Definition content such as videos due to its Full HD resolution and its 16: 9 format.

This is all the more significant as it is powerful thanks to its 16 GB RAM and its AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 7 5800H Cezanne Octo Core processor.
Thanks to this core, we achieve much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4 and a Quad / Hexa Core, and the difference is especially noticeable during work that consumes RAM and CPU resources by utilizing multicores, such as photo editing or video conversion. , which will be of interest to creative people.
This core actually delivers total power that is able to appeal to demanding users … provided they do not need high graphics performance.
Because to preserve autonomy and limit heating, there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. Players will therefore go their separate ways, except for those who are happy with light games, which the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution integrated in the Ryzen 7 is able to support, while of course you can view photos and videos.
To ensure the best possible autonomy with controlled heating as well as good fluidity, Asus logically integrates here in terms of storage an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that competes with what disks offer.hard in this area.
