Like any model whose format is less than 15 inches, this Ultrabook does not have the necessary space to the right of the keyboard to accommodate a physical numeric keypad.
But Asus has the good idea to deliver its NumberPad functionality here. Once enabled, NumPad converts the touchpad into a tactile numeric keypad to make entering numbers easier.

When not using the webcam, it can be hidden behind a shutter, which is useful for preserving privacy.

Coated with an anti-reflective treatment, the screen is more readable in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a shiny panel.
As it adopts a Full HD definition associated with a 16:9 format, the screen is suitable for videos.
Furthermore, its viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, are important thanks to its IPS technology, however not high-end here since the colorimetry is classic.

Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook Go 14 S1404VA-EB310W

The Asus VivoBook Go 14 S1404VA-EB310W is a compact multipurpose laptop intended for everyday multipurpose use offering a large storage capacity.

It actually has an SSD offering no less than 1000 GB of capacity, which is equivalent to double what the vast majority of mobile PCs on the market offer.

We can therefore calmly install and store quantities of applications and files on this Ultrabook which sees its responsiveness and fluidity reinforced compared to an edition equipped with a hard drive.

In addition to being more resistant to shocks, less energy consuming and silent, an SSD is in fact much faster.
Starts/stops are therefore much faster with an SSD than with a hard drive, as are processing and software launches, while arrival on online game cards is faster.

However, there is no mistake here in this regard. While you can view photos and videos, and even play light to modest games with this laptop, it is clearly not suitable for demanding gamers.
Because it does not have a dedicated graphics card and entrusts all the graphics to the care of the Iris Xe.

The Iris Xe is a graphics solution which takes place within the low consumption Intel Raptor Lake Refresh Core 5 120U processor with 10 hybrid cores, here coupled with 16 GB of RAM.
