Performance, autonomy for Asus R515JA-EJ3128W
The Asus R515JA-EJ3128W is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop intended for everyday use.
It benefits from an SSD that rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB, while being silent, less energy demanding, more robust and much faster.
In practice, the SSD thus guarantees much better responsiveness and fluid everyday life compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, starting/stopping and launching applications is especially much faster.
If you need more than 512 GB, you can of course use an external storage device. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting opportunity to take advantage of fast transfers.

The SSD advantageously accompanies the heart of this computer composed of 8 GB of RAM and a low-power Intel Ice Lake Core i3-1005G1 processor.
With this core, we achieve good performance in daily use, such as surfing the Internet and office automation.
On the other hand, it must be kept in mind that the Core i3-1005G1 shows its limits under processor-intensive software, just like mobile computers based on an AMD Ryzen 3 or obviously less powerful processor.
No dedicated graphics card on board here. As a result, the graphics are completely controlled by the Intel UHD 620 solution integrated into the Core i3, enough to still see pictures and videos.
In terms of autonomy, expect around 5 hours of battery life with light use for this elegant silver Ultrabook, whose contained weight and finesse make it easy to transport.
