This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
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.A minimum quality level is important to guarantee reliability over time. It is a balance between a 1st price and the latest multi-processor designed for professionals.The key is to achieve balance with a cheap but solid laptop.This product will thus perfectly meet your needs.With this Notebook, Asus is well positioned in relation to other competing models.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.
As for the processor level, this model is equipped with the Intel Core i5-1035G1. A component providing impressive power and responsiveness. In addition, with this model, you have at your disposal a tool that will make your internet navigation fluid. With 8 Gb of RAM, it Notebookis a good product. Even if it has free slots in which you can add memory strips, it’s more than enough to get you started.
By offering a hard drive of this size, the company is making this model one of the laptops with the largest disk space on the market. Even with 512 Gb, you can be sure that many video and audio files are continuously stored. 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. Asus is among the best in terms of duration in only battery mode. Incidentally, you will have all the more pleasure to use it for a long time because of its very pleasant screen.
Is Notebook okay to watch videos ?
High quality, the engineers of Asus have chosen to make this Notebook the top of the range for leisure uses: movies, music, photos. A blend of your TV, stereo and media players in one machine. And to put it simply, this model is clearly one of the best in its category for watching videos or listening to music. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
Asus presents this model in a large size version. A 15.6 inches screen, and a resolution of 1366×768 make it one of the great products available on the market at the moment. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. The color contrast is sharp, and the image is bright, no matter from what angle you look at it.
One of the disadvantages of this size, however, is the overall weight: 1.9 kg that will have to be transported.
Unfortunately, no glossy screen is available on this model. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
Therefore, when used in daylight conditions, you will appreciate the lack of this feature, as the light induces reflections, making it difficult to view.
For the sound part, the Notebook is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
The processor installed on this model is a high-end 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.
Equipped with the Intel UHD 620 graphic card, and with 8 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
A laptop usually has an autonomy of several hours.With 9 hours of autonomy, it is one of the best models in its range. What a pleasure it is not to have to check the battery level on a regular basis!
The Notebook- the right model to stay connected while travelling ?
Easier to transport than a desktop computer, it is not intended for travelling. It doesn’t seem to have been a priority when they designed this model Asus. 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.
In other words, leave it at home and only take it for occasional short trips.
It Notebook is in the average, neither too light nor too heavy: 1.9 Kg. It is easy to carry even if you prefer the ultra slim models of the competition. On the other hand, the large size will be an advantage to see photos during the holidays. For 15.6 inches, on the other hand, it allows you to have a clear display when you want to browse the internet or write e-mails.
Asus has decided to provide a touch screen on the Notebook. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. It’s up to you to make accurate navigational selections.
No backlit keyboard on this Notebook. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
We enjoy viewing on this screen which displays deep and vivid colours. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
This model offers a pleasant user comfort. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
With its Intel Core i5-1035G1, this computer has a limited power consumption, one of the best currently. It has a very low voltage, allowing you to benefit from a greater autonomy and thus reduce and extend the life of the batteries.
On the other hand, these are estimated data based on average laptop usage.
With this laptop and its autonomy of 9 hours, you have in fact one of the best models of the moment.
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.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
When it comes to taking your laptop with you, it will seem safer to do so only occasionally. Its size does not invite you to carry it everywhere you go. The main reason is its 15.6 inches, which makes it one of the largest in its class; every move, with its weight, may be difficult.
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 to play with?
Laptops, thanks to the rise in performance of processors and graphics cards, allow some people to gamble. And this Notebook is one of the average laptops you can play with. On the other hand, if you have to go through several hours, these same components will seem weak.
This laptop has a resolution in 1366×768, which is one of the poorest existing today. In fact, the game phases will present lower quality images.
These generations of processor and graphics card are nowadays a little outdated, which makes this model below the others. 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.
Our tests have shown that for Asus this computer is not intended for playing video games. An exception to this is if you play on games that are more than 5 years old.
