Built around 8GB RAM and an AMD APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Lucienne low-power Ryzen 7 5700U Octo Core processor, this versatile laptop PC delivers good overall performance capable of satisfying many users.
However, keep in mind that to frequently perform work that consumes graphics and/or processor resources, it is preferable to equip yourself with a mobile computer built around a dedicated graphics card and/or non-low processor consumption.
All the graphics here are supported by the Radeon Vega 8 graphics solution housed directly in the Ryzen 7, enough for viewing photos and videos, as well as enjoying light games.
There is therefore no dedicated graphics card in this laptop that entrusts its storage to an SSD. This offers a capacity of 512 GB, which corresponds to what standard hard drives offer.
But if you need extra space, you can add a second SSD or a hard drive via the free 2.5-inch slot. Or use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device for fast transfers.
Still, the SSD significantly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a day-to-day basis compared to a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, the start/stops are much faster as well as the processing and launching of software and we reach the cards of online games faster.
Let’s take a look at the advantages of an SSD over a hard drive: faster speed, lower power consumption, quiet operation and greater shock resistance.
As for the autonomy, count on about 7 hours of battery life in light use for this versatile computer that is as easy to transport as an Ultrabook thanks to its compactness, finesse and lightness.
