With its thin and light Transparent Silver light silver design, this notebook has a sober and elegant look.
It has good connectivity options with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for connections and communication at a distance, its audio port or its 2 USBs 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.
Lovers of videos and more broadly of High Definition content will be pleased that the screen uses a 16:9 format associated with a precise Full HD definition that is superior to the standard 1366×768.

Performance, autonomy for Asus R515JA-EJ3468W
The Asus R515JA-EJ3468W is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop intended for everyday use.
It delivers in this area such as in office automation and internet surfing, but also generally good performance that can suit many users.
Because it is built around a low-power Intel Ice Lake Quad Core i5-1035G1 processor and a good amount of 8 GB RAM, which is very useful in multitasking.
Logically, in terms of the placement of this Ultrabook, there is no dedicated graphics card on board.
However, you can view photos and videos thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics solution integrated directly into the Core i5.
SSD storage clearly improves its day-to-day responsiveness and agility compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, starting/stopping, processing and launching applications is much faster, for example, and we reach the cards for online games faster.
It must be said that an SSD is much faster than a hard drive, but also silent, more robust and less energy demanding.
At 512 GB, the SSD offers a bonus capacity in line with what standard hard drives offer, enough to accommodate a lot of files and software.
However, in the event that more space is needed, you can of course use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting solution to achieve fast transfers.
Regarding the autonomy of this Ultrabook, whose transport is facilitated by its finesse and controlled weight, bet on about 5 hours of battery operation with light use.
