Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W against the competition
The Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W is currently displayed in campaign at Amazon and meets very few competitors in its category, where it is one of the thinnest and lightest, and one of the only ones that offers a screen with such faithful colors associated with such a powerful processor.
Chassis, connectors, monitor on Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W
Cooled by IceCool Plus technology via 2 fans, heating pipes and air vents, this versatile laptop in a thin and light Quiet Blue design has a discreet look and offers 3 preset operating profiles.
This laptop is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (more efficient and newer than Wi-Fi ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for remote connections and communication, its convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, such as its audio port or its 3 USBs including 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) that guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
The Chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful for better distinguishing its keys when the ambient light is reduced.
Those who want to preserve their privacy will appreciate being able to push a cover in front of the webcam.
Creators and more generally those who value much more faithful colors than average will be pleased that the screen offers a beautiful rendering thanks to its DCI-P3 and OLED specifications, which also involve significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, very deep or a reduced latent. With its Full HD resolution and 16: 9 format, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos. Its anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W
The Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W is a slim and lightweight 15-inch laptop designed for everyday use.
A maximum of users will be satisfied with the overall performance provided by this versatile laptop because it is built around an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5600H Cezanne Hexa Core processor and 16 GB RAM.
Creators will especially appreciate this core because it guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core and 8GB of DDR4 in areas that use CPU and RAM resources by utilizing multicore, such as video editing / conversion or photo editing.
On the other hand, players will go their way because there is no dedicated graphics card on board. However, you can watch photos and videos, but also play light games thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics part integrated in the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core.
Storage here is entrusted to an SSD, which competes with the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB, while being quieter, more robust, less energy consuming and much faster.
Specifically, the SSD ensures much better responsiveness and fluid use than a simple hard drive, which in particular involves much faster multimedia processing, as well as software boot / stop and launches, or even a faster arrival to online game cards.
Best known price: 799 €
Obviously, if 512 GB turns out to be too tight, it is possible to use an external storage device such as a USB 3.0 / USB-C device to achieve fast transfers.
In terms of autonomy, expect about 8 hours of battery life with light use of this mobile computer, whose transportation is facilitated by its finesse and controlled weight.
However, it is to be expected that this laptop will be audible and warm when pressed vigorously (e.g .: treatments).
A ventilated support can be used if necessary to limit temperatures (remember to check the goals carefully!).
