Chassis, Connectors, and Display For Asus Vivobook 14 S416JA
It has an original look with its subtle and light blue design on both the cover and the interior.
In terms of connectivity, this laptop is well equipped with its own USB-C port, its handy HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1 wireless modules for telecommunications and an audio port or Its 3 USB ports are all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, and USB 3.0 ensures transmission up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
The screen is well suited for displaying videos and high definition content on a wider scale because it adopts 16:9 format associated with Full HD micro definition. In addition, since it is anti-reflective, the screen can be read in a bright environment (eg outside) more than in a glossy panel. It is possible that this is IPS but it has not been confirmed. If so, then the angles of its horizontal and vertical viewing will be important.
The performance and autonomy of the Asus Vivobook 14 S416JA
The Asus Vivobook 14 S416JA is a compact HD laptop in an original blue design designed for everyday use.
In this area, as in web browsing and office automation, it performs well because it is built around a low-powered Intel Ice Lake Core i3-1005G1 processor as well as a good amount of very useful 8GB of RAM in a multi mission.
Thanks to the Intel UHD 620 graphics part built into the Core i3, you can view photos and videos. On the other hand, the game is not the cup of tea for this thin and light laptop, logical considering its location.
Also keep in mind that under processor-intensive software, Core i3 shows its limitations like AMD Ryzen 3 and of course less powerful processors.
On the storage side, the Ultrabook with a blue design that does not leave anyone indifferent accommodates an SSD that offers many advantages over a simple hard drive: more power, lower power consumption, silent operation and faster speed.
Best known price: 471 euros
Result Thanks to the SSD, we get the program start / stop and launch operations much faster than a simple hard drive. In general, SSD provides better fluidity and responsiveness during use.
With 256 GB, the onboard SSD here offers half the capacity of a standard HDD. However, in case you need the extra space, you can use an external storage like a USB-C/USB 3.0 device for quick transfers.
As for the autonomy of this Ultrabook, which is easy to transport through its compactness, accuracy and lightness, I’d bet around 5 hours of battery life in light use.
