Technical details of the Asus X413JA-EB593

The Asus VivoBook 14 X413JA-EB593 ensures smooth and reliable performance by employing a 10th generation Intel processor . It is the powerful Core™ i7-1065G7H . Despite not being a truly modern CPU , its design for portable devices benefits productivity with low power consumption, since the TDP of the unit is only 15 W. The processor has four cores capable of reaching frequencies of 3.9 Ghz , being backed by 8 MB of cache.

Modern hardware and connectivity to match

This Asus model does not have an independent graphics unit, so it compulsorily uses the graphics integrated in the processor: Intel UHD . Logically, it limits the potential of the device, but it favors the autonomy time of the equipment, by spending less energy, and it contains the final cost of the product. Sticking to the fundamental objective of the device, this type of choice by the manufacturer is really normal, since the integrated graphics are sufficient to meet the demands of work and leisure standard. In addition, the laptop has 16 GB of DDR4 RAM , which guarantees us to run all processes smoothly.

Storage and operating system

The storage section, for programs and data, is one of the most appreciated in this Asus Vivobook 14 model , as it includes a fast, and at the same time spacious, 1 TB SDD unit . We are surprised when we discover that the solid disk comes empty, that is, the manufacturer gives us the laptop without an operating system license . Users who pre-own the software , however, will find it quite beneficial, saving the cost of the pre-installed Windows program . The issue is that it forces the user to spend time installing the OS and configuring the system. the ssd driveit is complemented by a MicroSD card reader .


This device boasts low power consumption, which combined with its compact screen, so Asus chooses a simple 3- cell  42 Wh battery . Something disappointing.


Without being the most modern of Intel processors , the one assembled in the Asus X413JA-EB593 , the device makes the most of its potential by combining it with some great level components. It may be a previous generation CPU that Intel already distributes on the market, but it has plenty of capabilities to speed up any task that comes our way during a day at home or in the office. In addition, it is complemented by good connectivity that allows us to take advantage of the great qualities of the compact laptop. Without forgetting that it can also offer a great leisure experiencewhen it’s time to relax. As a negative point, to point out the lack of an operating system, which forces, in the best of cases, to invest a configuration time before being able to use the product, when not an extra payment to acquire a software license .
