Notebook compatible with internet use?
Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.This laptop will ensure that the tasks you perform will be reliable and trouble-free for years to come.In fact, it’s all about finding a product with the right price/quality ratio. Here you have an almost perfect product.By putting on the market the Notebook, Asus offers a well thought-out product of very good quality.
The screen is quite large, with 15.6 inches. Not necessarily easy to carry around. This laptop is equipped with a touch screen; always interesting for when you get tired of the slippery mouse pad or when no flat surface is available when you have this Notebook on your lap. The materials here are of such a high standard that they will last for many years. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care Asus has been taken in the overall design of this model.
The computer is equipped with one of the latest processors Intel Core i5-1035G1. A component providing impressive power and responsiveness. In addition, this model will make your web browsing sessions pleasant and fluid. A standard equipment with 8 Gb of RAM. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
The size of the hard drive makes this laptop one of the biggest. Even if you think 512 Gb is more than enough, it’s surprising to discover that it’s easy to fill a disc completely with photos, movies or games in a very short time. Here, Asus provides with this Notebook a laptop that will allow you to watch all your films locally for a long time.
Finally, thanks to an autonomy of 9 hours, you will have enough time to browse the web in Internet browsing mode with active Wifi. This is one of the most important laptops on the market at the moment compared to other laptops.

The Notebook- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Making this Notebook a multimedia tool, such seems to have been the objective of Asus. A blend of your TV, stereo and media players in one machine. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. The sound reproduction level and the display quality of this top-of-the-range model won’t be lacking.
The laptop from .Asus is imposing by its size. Large by size, with 15.6 inches and a high resolution of 1366×768. Multimedia oriented, you will enjoy watching your films. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
Note that one eliminatory criteria for some nomadic users is its weight; here this model weighs 1.9 kg, partly because of the screen size.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. It will be more delicate to perfectly distinguish the images without getting tired.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
On the sound side, it Notebook has good components: board and integrated speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
This model has one of the best processors of the moment; the Intel Core i5-1035G1. Belonging to the latest generation of processors, this laptop will not be impressed by multiple multimedia tasks. Performance corresponding to billions of calculations per second.
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one Intel UHD 620, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
A laptop usually has an autonomy of several hours.Asus promises 9hours of battery life; it’s the best on the market right now.Your viewing will not be abruptly stopped in the middle of your movie, Netflix session, or any other streaming platform.
Is Notebook planned for travelling ?
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. At least that’s what we find out a priori. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
Reserve its use at home, between your living room and your bedroom.
It Notebook weights 1.9 Kg which makes it a computer in the average of its category. You can transport it easily, without too much effort. On the other hand, it is also pleasant to use it to surf the internet or write e-mails. Its weight is a disadvantage, but the15.6 inches screen will make it an advantage when writing e-mails or doing word processing.
Note that the screen of this Notebook being touch screen, you will be able to do without the mouse. Always convenient, the operating mode is as simple as on your smartphone. The accuracy of touch in navigation is without problem.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
This laptop is very comfortable to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
Thanks to its processor Notebook, the use in exclusive battery mode is one of the most important of the competition. The processor of this computer is one of the most powerful at the moment.
Please note that the autonomy is provided as an indication by Asus, and that you should rather take 70% of this value into account.
Regarding the autonomy of this laptop, you will have 9 hours before having to reconnect; that is to say one of the best csore on the market.
In order to reduce the risk of breakage while on the move, this model is equipped with a 512 Gb SSD hard drive. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. 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 do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
When away on business, your laptop will mostly stay at the hotel. You will limit transport as much as possible because of its bulk. The reason for this is its size; with 15.6 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
With the bluetooth functionality of this model you can also simply connect with your loved ones’ devices.
Following our tests, it appeared to us that it is not Notebook really made for travelling.
The Notebook- the right model for audio or video editing ?
If you’re serious about editing and creating music, then you pay a lot of attention to processor speed and memory. It appears that this Notebookmeets this need perfectly. With these components, Asus puts at your disposal a laptop whose computing speed has been improved since the last generation. This laptop will facilitate multitasking, and you will be able to simultaneously run applications such as Photoshop, Magix Video or Vegas pro with an operating Windows 10 system.
This laptop is efficient and cheaper than most of its direct competitors for such uses.Equipped with a software suite as standard, you can start editing for movies and music. If needed, you can install more pro-oriented applications on the 512 Gb available of the hard disk.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. The Notebook has only got one, with total 512 Gb storage for your movies and music. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
As with many laptops, autonomy is a delicate subject. Here, it’s 9 hours of autonomy available. As a reminder, with such a powerful laptop, it’s hard to do much better Asus.
For the connector part, the Notebookhas the USB3 format. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. This standard allows transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit per second, about ten times faster than USB 2.0.
It Notebook is consequently well designed for this type of use. Audio and video editing will be easier than ever. And at a price that is well ranked.
The Notebook for online or local games.
Most manufacturers are aware that the use of laptops is not limited to word processing and spreadsheets. The tests we ran showed that the choices of Asus in terms of components – the chip, the processor generation, or the quality of cooling – make this an average laptop for gaming. During our tests, we found that the computer was raised correctly, as soon as the scenes in some games required fast movements and colour changes.
With only 1366×768, this model is below standard ones. The visual comfort during the game phase, and the image quality will be less good.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. Finally, if you want to play often, we recommend a model with more power.
Since Asus has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
Even though online games today do not require disk space, the one installed on this model is one of the largest. With 512 Gb of available space, you will be able to store your backups, music and movies.
A better access to wifi on this Notebook that is standard equipped with the 5GHz band. 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.
As far as space requirements are concerned, this computer weighs 1.9 Kg and is 15.6 inches sized; it is in the average range of other laptops.
With an autonomy of 9 hours, it’s better than the competition.
It Notebook is finally an interesting compromise for those who want performance without spending too much on the purchase. You can also use it for word processing if you need it.
Notebook for office automation ?
Asus has chosen to respond to all users who wish to have a basic use of their Notebook. With this product, the manufacturer brings a quality computer to the market.
Customary of this OS, Asus has chosen as usual. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 that’s running it.
In contrast to other larger models, this model is in the middle of the pack in terms of space requirements. Its weight of 1.9 Kg is not too high for a mobile computer.
This computer was really designed for office use. Hence the good idea to offer a default number pad as a complement.
This Notebook eliminates the problems of light reflection on the screen, as it has a matt finish. But at the same time, the light intensity is low enough so as not to tire the eyes in the dark.
During daytime use, the absence of a backlit keyboard will not be a problem.
Regarding the size of the hard disk, it has 512 Gb.You may never fill it out, especially if you are just browsing the Internet, word processing and making spreadsheets.
In the end, this Notebook is a good compromise. It makes it possible to make office automation for a tight price.
Finally, the Notebook….
There is no such thing as a perfect laptop for every purpose, unless you put a price tag on it, and keep in mind that it will be too powerful for most of your needs. The Notebook corresponds to a product that is certainly average, but still effective.
In other words, this model is not really made for :
– travel use
You can still, at the very least, use it to:
– playing video games
– office tasks
In summary, we advise this model for :
– surfing on the internet
