VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – enough for internet use?
What you expect from a mobile phone is that it allows you to surf the Web, and possibly allow you to write e-mails, do calculations in a spreadsheet or word processor. This VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. Even if the material is not of a very high quality, with plastic materials (at the level of the hull), the components and the internal circuits of the machine are still designed by Asus; a manufacturer who has been offering laptops for several years already. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
A medium-sized, 14 inches-sized screen that you can slip into a computer bag and take with you on the go. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Core i7-1165G7. Indeed, this processor is starting to date compared to what is on the market today. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. Having 8 Gb of RAM, VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – is a laptop in the average. If needed you can add more, thanks to the extra slots inside.
With its 500 Gb of hard disk, you are within the average of other computers. If, on the other hand, you are storing photos, video or music, it will be filled up quickly. Considering the offers currently available in terms of public cloud, and your internet usage, it is highly likely that you will never completely fill the disk space of this laptop.
Finally, an important point for a laptop: autonomy; here you will have 6 hours of freedom before you have to plug it back into the socket. This is standard for this range of laptops, and for the type of battery it is equipped with. It would be more interesting for the same price, to buy a desktop or a tablet, more powerful on the part autonomy and web surfing.

This VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – is a multipurpose laptop that will suit most uses, whether it’s for playing resource-efficient games, light photo editing, or for office work and web browsing. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
The computer proposed by Asusis of average size. A model with a standard template, 14 inches, and good resolution. 1920×1080. The image quality is bright and colorful, and provides an immersive experience. Clearly, big enough to tire your eyes when watching movies, but also rather light (1.4 kg) when you have to carry it.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris -. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Obsolescence has already striken this laptop, equipped with a processor Core i7-1165G7 that is several years old now. The result will be higher electricity consumption and less quiet than in recent generations. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
You will do what you want for the applications, as it is not Asus installed by default. The operating system and that’s it. This is a Windows 10 Pro on which you can install the software you need. Can only be VLC to manage the audio and video part.

An autonomy of 6 hours allows this model to average what the competitors do.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 500 Gb SSD hard drive. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.Thanks to this, Asus was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.For those who will need more space, this VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.

Since the last generation designed by Asus, there have been many improvements on the components. It is a laptop designed for multitasking presented with Windows 10 Pro, which will allow to manage at the same time the audio-video applications consuming calculations.
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. It is possible to edit, but it is not the task that the processor Core i7-1165G7 does best. The general design is now too old to consider this type of use in a pro version.
Even if this corresponds to quality components, Asus made the choice to put only one SSD. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. The VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – has only got one, with total 500 Gb storage for your movies and music. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. For 6 hours of autonomy, you have a little time to work on your edits. However, it’s still a decent average range.
For the connector part, the VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris -has the USB3 format. An interesting format for transfers when you want to move your large audio-video files. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
It VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – is consequently well designed for this type of use. And much more if you finally decide to use it only for word processing or web browsing, instead of audio video editing. And for the right price/quality ratio.
VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – for video games?

As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. With a resolution in 1920×1080 this laptop fis one of the best of its class.
The technological evolution being wha it is, this model does much less than many other laptops. Ideal for old design games, it has difficulty restoring the images and colors of the latest online games. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
For most games, this model will be suitable for gaming mode. It corresponds to a median choice, neither extremely powerful nor too expensive.
With its 500 Gb of space, this VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – is on a level playing field with its competitors. A feature that interested those, and there are still many, who want to install and play locally.
For Wi-Fi technology, Asus decided to make the use of the 5GHz wireless band possible. A guarantee of quality that will allow, if your living area is equipped with it, to have a faster and generally more reliable web access.
On the practical transport side, this model is one of the lightest on the market, with 1.4 Kg.
By offering 6 hours of autonomy, this computer is in the middle of the market.

Is the VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – adapted to office automation ?
Like the majority of its competitors, Asus has designed VivoBook S433EA-EB259R Noir/Gris – for office automation. It is a mature product.
Here, this model runs under a standard OS. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 Pro that’s running it.
Not all basic office applications may be available on this model. You will have to download the applications you need, which implyies for some software a slight increase in the overall cost.
One of the big advantages of a laptop is naturally its ability to follow you when you’re on the move. This model, with its 1.4 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
No numeric keypad comes standard on this model. As soon as you’ll have to do calculations on a spreadsheet, it will be less simple.
Thanks to the matt treated screen surface, there is almost no reflection of direct sunlight or lamps in the offices. You will benefit from a more diffuse natural image, which has the advantage of causing less eye strain.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
