Chassis, connectors, monitor on Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W
60% rechargeable in 49 minutes, this versatile laptop has a sleek and understated look with its thin and lightweight lightweight silver aluminum design.
It is cooled by 2 fans (87 thin blades of 0.2 mm in liquid crystal polymer) and air outlet. As a bonus, it offers 3 predefined operating modes: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (quiet, economical).
This Ultrabook is well-equipped for connecting with its USB-C, its convenient HDMI video output for easy connection to a TV or monitor, such as its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for remote connections and wireless communication, its audio port or its 3 USBs, all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected.
However, we regret that Asus does not offer newer and more efficient Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules here.
In any case, many people will appreciate being able to backlight the keys on the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in a dimly lit environment. The Enter key indicated in yellow gives a touch of originality.
Those who appreciate more faithful colors than average with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles will be pleased that the screen announces itself sRGB and IPS. It is also very suitable for viewing videos and more generally High Definition content because it uses a 16: 9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition. As a bonus, as it is anti-reflective, the screen provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Performance, autonomy of Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W
The Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W can be interesting for those who want to equip themselves with a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop with more faithful colors than the average for everyday use.
It benefits from silent SSD storage, while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more shock resistant and much faster.
In addition, the SSD here offers a large capacity of 1 TB, corresponding to what the vast majority of hard drives on the market offer.
In any case, specifically, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we achieve much faster start / stop, processing and launching of applications for example or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.
Despite the absence of a dedicated built-in graphics card, you can actually view photos and videos or even play modest titles on this sleek silver versatile laptop thanks to the Iris Xe (tested by us), a graphics solution integrated directly into the processor.
In this case, it is a Quad Core i7-1165G7 Intel Tiger Lake with low consumption, which delivers a good overall performance capable of satisfying many users, especially it is associated with 16GB of comfortable RAM.
Keep in mind, however, that too often to perform work that requires processor and / or graphics resources, it is better to turn to a PC based on a non-low-power processor and / or a suitably dedicated graphics card.
Finally, on the autonomy side, expect around 6 hours of battery life with light use of this versatile Ultrabook with an elegant silver design whose contained weight and thinness make it easy to transport.
