Chassis, connectors, screen of the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W
In a thin and light Quiet Blue design, this versatile laptop is cooled by IceCool Plus technology via 2 fans, heat pipes and vents and has a discreet look and 3 preset control profiles.
This laptop is equipped with good connectivity with its USB-C, its Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (more efficient and more recent than WiFi ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 for external connections and communication, the practical HDMI video output for easy connection to e.g. a TV or monitor, the audio port or the 3 USBs, 1 of which is USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) that transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is useful for better distinguishing the keys when the ambient light is reduced.
Those who want to maintain their privacy will appreciate being able to slide a cover in front of the webcam.
Makers and more generally those who appreciate much more faithful colors than the average will be pleased that the screen offers a beautiful display thanks to the DCI-P3 and OLED specifications, also with significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, very deep or a reduced latency. With its Full HD definition and 16:9 format, the screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos. The anti-reflective treatment also makes it more readable than a glossy panel in a bright environment (e.g. outdoors).
Performance, autonomy of the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W
The Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED S3500QA-L1190W is a thin and light 15-inch laptop intended for everyday general use.
A maximum of users will be pleased with the overall performance of this versatile laptop PC as it is built around an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5600H Cezanne Hexa Core processor and 16 GB RAM.
Creators will especially appreciate this core because it guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core and 8 GB DDR4 in areas that consume CPU and RAM resources and take advantage of multicore, such as video editing/conversion or photo editing.
On the other hand, players will have their way, as there is no dedicated graphics card on board. However, you can view photos and videos, as well as play light games thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics part integrated into the Ryzen 5 Hexa Core.
The storage here is entrusted to an SSD that rivals the standard of hard drives in capacity with its 512 GB, while being quiet, more robust, less energy-consuming and much faster.
Specifically, the SSD provides a much better response and smoothness in use than a simple hard drive, implying in particular much faster multimedia processing, as well as starting/stopping and launching software, or even faster arrival to the online game of cards.

Should 512 GB prove to be too small, it is of course possible to use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0/USB-C device to achieve fast transfers.
As for autonomy, expect about 8 hours of battery life with light use for this mobile computer whose transport is facilitated by its finesse and controlled weight.
However, this laptop is to be expected to make itself heard and heat up when pressed hard (eg treatments).
If necessary, a ventilated support can be used to limit the temperature (remember to check the dimensions carefully!†
