Chassis, connections, screen of the Asus Vivobook S OLED 16 S5606UA-MX001W

With its thin and light Cool Silver light design in a comfortable, robust format due to its compliance with the American military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, this versatile creative-oriented laptop has a sober and elegant appearance.

This laptop PC is equipped with good connectivity including a microSD card reader, 2 USB-C including 1 USB 4, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, Bluetooth wireless modules 5.3 and Wi-Fi 6E ax to communicate and connect remotely, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are plugged into it.

Via Windows Hello technology and the infrared functionality of the webcam allowing facial recognition, biometric authentication is possible.

In a dimly lit environment, you can obviously activate the backlighting of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish its keys.

The screen stands out with its 3.2K definition, which is significantly higher than Full HD, ideal for High Definition content, its 16:10 format displaying more information on height than the classic 16:9 format.
The screen is also distinguished by its OLED DCI-P3 characteristics thanks to which its colorimetry is much more faithful than average, its very deep blacks as well as its significant and significant horizontal viewing angles. As a bonus, OLED offers minimal latency which, associated with the frequency of 120Hz higher than the 60Hz standard, improves general fluidity.
OLED also induces a glossy treatment which gives punch to the colors but is subject to reflections in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, battery life of the Asus Vivobook S OLED 16 S5606UA-MX001W

The Asus Vivobook S OLED 16 S5606UA-MX001W targets those who wish to have a High Definition High Fidelity laptop PC in a comfortable format with high processor performance and multimedia orientation.

Demanding users will be seduced by the good overall power provided by this versatile laptop PC.
Because it relies on 16 GB of RAM as well as a latest generation AMD Hawk Point Ryzen 7 8845HS Octo Core processor in which the Radeon 780M graphics module takes place.

Creative people will particularly appreciate this core since it notably guarantees much faster processing than 8 GB DDR4/5 as well as a Quad/Hexa Core. We clearly feel the difference in areas that are intensive in RAM and CPU resources using multi-core, such as video editing or photo editing.

Viewing HD photos and videos is of course possible with this computer, thanks to which you can also play light to modest games… if you agree to concessions. Because the 3.2K definition of the screen requires more graphics calculations than Full HD, which results in a lower number of fps. Reducing the screen definition is therefore a good option for gaming.

The storage goes well with the heart of this computer since it is entrusted to an SSD providing much better responsiveness and fluidity in use than a hard drive.
It must be said that in addition to being more shock resistant, more energy efficient and quiet, an SSD is much faster.

Result, thanks to the SSD, starts/stops, processing and launches of applications are carried out faster than with a hard drive, and we reach the online game cards more quickly.

Asus has the good idea to integrate here an SSD whose substantial capacity of 1000 GB allows you to install and store multiple software and files including, why not, personal productions.

As for the autonomy, it is around 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this computer whose finesse and lightness make it easy to transport, which will be of interest to some wishing to equip themselves with a student laptop PC of comfortable and efficient in terms of multimedia-oriented processor.

When pushed strongly (e.g. treatments) this laptop PC heats up and makes itself heard. To contain its temperatures, it can be combined with a ventilated support (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
