Those who appreciate much more faithful colors than the average will be delighted that the screen adopts DCI-P3 OLED specifications, especially since this also implies significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles, very deep blacks as well as a low latency.

The Asus VivoBook S15 S533UA-L1178T is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop designed for everyday versatile mobile use.

As it is based on 8 GB of RAM associated with an AMD Hexa Core APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) Ryzen 5 5500U Lucienne processor, this versatile laptop PC delivers good general performance capable of suiting many users.

And all the more so since this heart allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play light titles thanks to the Radeon Vega 7 graphics solution integrated in the Ryzen 5.

On the storage side, there is an SSD that rivals the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and much faster.

Of course, in the event that 512 GB would be too tight, it is possible to rely on an external storage unit. Opting for a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.

In any case, the SSD ensures much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than a simple hard disk, which notably implies much faster start-ups/stops, processing and software launches, or even a faster arrival on the online game cards.

As for the autonomy of this computer whose transport is as easy as for an Ultrabook because of its contained weight and its finesse, bet on about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
