Chassis, connectors, screen of Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2340W
With its thin and light blue design, this versatile laptop PC has an original look.
The connectivity included in this Ultrabook is good, consisting of 1 USB-C, 1 practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor for example, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4 wireless modules for remote connection and communication, an audio port or even 2 USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 compatible USB, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
We appreciate the ability to backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to make them more recognizable in the dark.
The screen will be of interest to fans of videos and wider High Definition content as it uses a 16:9 format which is associated with a precise definition of Full HD. In addition, it has significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, thanks to its IPS technology. However, we are not dealing with a high-end IPS panel here and therefore the colorimetry is average. In any case, since it is anti-reflective, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Performance, autonomy of the Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2340W
The Asus Vivobook S516JA-BQ2340W is a thin and light High Definition laptop intended for everyday general purpose use.
The overall performance it provides can suit many users as it includes 8GB of RAM coupled with a low power Quad Core i7-1065G7 processor.
In addition, thanks to the Iris Plus G7 graphics solution (which we tested) inside the Core i7, you can watch photos and videos but also play moderate titles for some concessions.
Storage is entrusted to a quiet SSD but also more stable than a hard drive, less energy consuming and quiet.
As a result, an SSD provides better fluidity and responsiveness on a day-to-day basis than a simple hard drive, which dramatically implies faster start/stop, application processing and launch, or even which is a faster arrival on line game cards for example. .
Here we are dealing with an SSD whose capacity of 512 GB corresponds to the standard among hard drives. However, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB 3.0 / USB-C device then represents an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
As for the autonomy of this versatile Ultrabook in the original blue color, whose transport is facilitated by controlled weight and efficiency, expect approximately 5 hours of battery operation in light use.
