The detail of our analysis in this article.
VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – to surf the Internet?
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. An inexpensive computer such as VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – may seem to be the solution. The material used by Asus are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. In the end, it is a product that will make you think about changing it in less than 4 years.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 14 inches size. With a processor Ryzen 3 3250U, Asus offers an already outdated technology. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. The 8 Gb of RAM available on this VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – is correct, equivalent to other products in the same price range. Everyone is free to hand in a little more memory, for work that requires it.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. For those who regularly work on a public or private cloud, the available 256 gigabytes will be enough. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
In the end, with an autonomy of 5 hours, you won’t have too much time to surf the web. This laptop is in the middle of the range for its autonomy. Because of this last point, you can either switch to a competitor’s laptop or always have the product plugged in; it’s up to you.
The VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu — the right model for streaming and videos ?
Asus presents this laptop as a standard product dedicated to a low-resource usage. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu -; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
Equipped with a small screen size, 14 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Nevertheless, the colours remain beautiful, with detailed contrasts in the images. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. However, this computer has a criteria that will interest some nomadic users, the weight; here it weighs only 1.4 kg, partly thanks to its small screen size.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. 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 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 S413DA-EK089T Bleu -. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Ryzen 3 3250U, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
You will do what you want for the applications, as it is not Asus installed by default. Only the operating system is installed. This is a Windows 10S that allows you to add the free or paid software you want. For multimedia, you can possibly take VLC .
Due to the level of the graphics card, you have one AMD Radeon Vega 3, which with 8 Gb de Ram, will allow you to make multimedia (movie viewing, and some simple photo retouching). Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. It’s better than the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
Finally concerning the battery life, you will have time before you have to think about reconnecting the power cable. 5 hours of battery life is enough for the vast majority of the videos you’ll see.
The VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – to use while travelling.
One of the primary functions of a laptop is to be easily transportable. So we put this test to the VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu -. Is it made to be taken on trips, packed in your luggage ? Will it be designed for your home-to-work transfers? Should you only consider it for weekend trips with your family? Or should this use be confined to going from the living room to your kitchen.
It appears that it is one of the best fulfilling the main criteria for nomadism, which are size, weight, quality of materials, and availability of wifi.
With a weight of 1.4 Kg, it is easily transportable. It is one of the lightest in this category. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. The 14 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Finally, the absence of a glossy slab does not compromise image quality. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
CPU Ryzen 3 3250U power consumption is a bit high considering the performance of the laptop.
Note that like all manufacturers, Asus is optimistic about the autonomy of this VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu -. You will need to expect 2/3 of this estimate for standard use; if you push the processor, the number will drop a little more.
Concerning the battery part, the autonomy is correct with 5 hours before the breakdown.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 256 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .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.
Even though your laptop will stay in the hotel more often than in a briefcase when you take it to the airport, you will appreciate its volume. With a screen of 14 inches and an ultra light weight, it is one of the best in its category.
The connector part is very interesting, with 4 inputs available. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
In conclusion, it can be considered that this VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – can be used for travel purposes.

Considering that the assembly that you intend to carry out is of the range of leisure, this VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – can suit you. Thanks to its processor and its RAM, it accepts multitasking without flinching. This is below what dedicated computers do for professional use, but a good level for those who need it.
The components and applications of this laptop are for basic use. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Ryzen 3 3250U. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
Even if this corresponds to quality components, Asus made the choice to put only one SSD. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. The VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – allows a price reduction with this choice, with an available space of 256 Gb. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
As far as autonomy is concerned, it’s not extraordinary. The available battery life is of 5 hours in standard conditions of use, which means keeping the charger close at hand because the audio-visual assembly consumes a lot of power. However, it’s still a decent average range.
On the connection side, the VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu -i s equipped with USB 3 technology. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.

VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu – for video games?
It is sometimes interesting, when you decide to buy a laptop, to be able to use it for several functions. With this VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu -, it will certainly be possible to play simple games, but as soon as the need for calculations requires more power, the image rendering will degrade. The main causes are related to a lack of homogeneity in the choice of the graphics chip, associated with the processor, the screen and the cooling level of the laptop.
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. After our analysis, it appears that use in game mode generates processor overheating and degradations in terms of images and colors. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
Since Asus has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. Unless you play games with designs older than 5-10 years.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.With 256 Gb it VivoBook S413DA-EK089T Bleu -is below the average of the other laptops of the moment.

We gave it the lamp test, positioned next to the screen, and it was found to be sufficiently matt to avoid the reflection phenomenon. With less or no glare, this screen will also stay cleaner for longer.an advantage when working on the screen several hours.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
