It has an elegant and discreet look with its thin and light Transparent Silver light silver design.
The connection integrated in this cheap laptop is good and does not have to be ashamed of many (significantly) more expensive models. In fact, 1 USB-C is offered here, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for remote connections and communication, an audio port or 3 USB including 1 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device to it.

Performance, autonomy of the Asus Vivobook R1500EA-EJ2739W
The Asus Vivobook R1500EA-EJ2739W is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday use.
In this area, as in surfing the Internet and office automation, it provides correct services because it is based on a low-power Intel Tiger Lake Pentium 7505U processor connected with a good amount of 8 GB of RAM, which is very noticeable in multitasking.
It should be noted that the Intel Pentium 7505U processor reveals its limits during CPU-intensive applications, which implies slowdowns.
In any case, the Pentium 7505U directly integrates the Intel UHD graphics module, enough for viewing photos and videos.
Logically in terms of the placement of this laptop, it does not carry a dedicated graphics card. Therefore, it is not designed for gaming.
Storage is entrusted to a silent SSD, but also less energy than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
Thanks to the SSD, we achieve much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard disk, which in particular means much faster start/stop and launch of applications.
It’s a 256GB SSD offered here, a capacity less than half that offered by standard hard drives, enough to accommodate light and/or few files/software.
What if we need more space? You can of course use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to achieve fast transfers.
We also appreciate having the option to add an extra SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5 inch slot.
Regarding the autonomy of this Ultrabook, whose finesse and controlled weight facilitate transport, you can expect about 5 hours of battery life with light use.
