Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook 14X N3405VA-LY121W

The Asus VivoBook 14X N3405VA-LY121W is a compact laptop computer with high processor performance for everyday versatile use.

Driven by a Core i5-13500H Intel Raptor Lake processor with 12 hybrid cores housing the Iris Xe graphics module, this Ultrabook delivers good general performance capable of satisfying many users, especially as it is associated with 16 GB of RAM.

Creatives will appreciate this core which guarantees faster processing than a classic Quad Core and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly notable in areas requiring CPU and RAM resources taking advantage of multi-core, such as photo editing or video editing.

On the other hand, there is no GPU acceleration of processing here since no dedicated graphics card is on board.
All graphics are therefore managed by the Iris Xe, thanks to which you can still watch photos and videos but also play light to modest games.

Very efficient in everyday use, this laptop PC is very responsive to use thanks to its core but also its storage.
It is in fact entrusted to an SSD that is much faster than a hard drive but also consumes less energy, is silent and more robust.

Responsiveness and fluidity are much better with an SSD than with a hard drive.
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, starts/stops, processing and launches of applications are much faster, for example, and we can access online game cards more quickly.

A 512 GB SSD is integrated here, a capacity equivalent to standard hard drives.
If, however, you need additional space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0/USB-C device to benefit from fast transfers.

As for autonomy, count on around 7 hours of battery operation in light use for this Ultrabook whose compactness, lightness and finesse make it easy to transport, enough to interest some in search of a Student laptop.

Under heavy loads (e.g. treatments), expect this elegant multi-purpose laptop to heat up and make itself heard.
If necessary, we can couple it with a ventilated support to limit its temperatures (remember to check the dimensions carefully!).
