Chassis, connectors, monitor on Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2339W
With its thin and light Peacock Blue design, this Ultrabook has an original look.
This laptop has great connectivity options consisting of 1 USB-C, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for connections and remote communication, an audio port or even 2 USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 compatible USBs, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.
Too bad, though, not having to deal with newer and more efficient Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5 modules.
In any case, many people will appreciate that the chiclet keyboard can be backlit so that its keys can be clearly distinguished in case of limited ambient light.
The screen is well suited for displaying videos and wider High Definition content because it uses a 16: 9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition. In addition, as it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel. The screen also has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology, which, however, is not high-end, because here the colorimetry is standard. In any case, thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outside) than a shiny panel.
Performance, autonomy of Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2339W
Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2339W is a thin and light High Definition laptop with an original blue design equipped with a large storage capacity and intended for everyday use.
It stands out in that it has a total storage capacity of 1.2 TB above average, enough to accommodate several files and software.
In fact, the 256 GB SSD is intended to accommodate the main software in addition to the system, the rest takes place on the 1000 GB hard drive.
The SSD offers the benefit of ensuring much better responsiveness and fluid use than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we especially achieve much faster start / stop, processing and application launch.
The SSD therefore supports the heart of this thin and light laptop very well, consisting of a low-power Intel Quad Core i5-1035G1 Ice Lake processor and a good amount of above average 12 GB RAM, very useful in multitasking. .
This duo delivers good overall performance and especially in everyday use as well as during modest multimedia processing using multicore and 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.
Because there is no dedicated graphics card on board here, all graphics are left to the Intel UHD 620, graphics solution directly integrated into the Core i5. In short, you can view photos and videos with this original blue design laptop that is not designed for gaming.
In terms of autonomy for this Ultrabook, whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight and finesse, you can expect about 5 hours of battery operation with light use.
