The Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W against the competition

The Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W is currently on display in promotion at Darty and at the fnac† It meets very few competitors in its category.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W

This versatile laptop is 60% rechargeable in 49 minutes and has a sleek and understated appearance with its thin and light, light silver aluminum design.

It is cooled by 2 fans (87 thin 0.2 mm blades in liquid crystalline polymer) and air outlets. As a bonus, it offers 3 predefined operating modes: Performance (power), Balanced (balanced) and Whisper (quiet, economical).

This Ultrabook is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its USB-C, its practical HDMI video output for easy connection to, for example, a TV or monitor, its Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.2 modules for external connections and communication without wires, the audio port or the 3 USBs all compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when a USB 3.0 device is connected to it.
We regret, however, that Asus does not offer more recent and more efficient Wi-Fi ax and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules here.

In any case, many people will appreciate that they can illuminate the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in a dimly lit environment. The Enter key outlined in yellow adds a touch of originality.

Those who appreciate more true-to-life colors than average with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles will be pleased that the display announces itself sRGB and IPS. It also lends itself very well to the display of videos and more generally High Definition content as it uses a 16:9 format coupled with an accurate Full HD definition. As a bonus, because it is anti-glare, the screen offers better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.

Performance, autonomy of the Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W

The Asus Vivobook S533EA-BN3007W may be of interest to those who want to equip themselves with a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop PC with more faithful than average colors for everyday general use.

It benefits from silent SSD storage, is more energy efficient than a hard drive, more shock resistant and much faster.

In addition, the SSD here offers a large capacity of 1 TB, which corresponds to what the vast majority of hard drives on the market offer.

Specifically, the SSD guarantees much better fluidity and responsiveness than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we get much faster start/stops, processing and launches of, for example, applications or even a faster arrival on the cards of online games.

Despite the lack of a dedicated built-in graphics card, you can indeed view photos and videos or even play modest titles on this elegant silver versatile laptop thanks to the Iris Xe (tested by us), a graphics solution integrated directly into the processor.

In this case, it is a Quad Core i7-1165G7 Intel Tiger Lake with low consumption that provides good overall performance and is able to satisfy many users, especially it is associated with 16 GB of comfortable RAM.

However, keep in mind that for frequently performing work that requires processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to use a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or an adequate dedicated Graphics Card.

Finally, on the autonomy side, expect about 6 hours of battery life in light use for this versatile Ultrabook with an elegant silver design that is easy to transport thanks to its weight and thinness.
