The ASUS Vivobook 16X offers a solid balance between price and performance with a lower midrange cost while delivering a good general use experience. It is equipped with a large 16-inch IPS display with a resolution suited for productivity and entertainment, but it may not be optimal for color-sensitive tasks with its adequate color coverage. The laptop includes a powerful main processor and a capable Nvidia RTX 4060 GPU, making it suitable for 3D rendering, machine learning, and engineering applications. However, with a modest battery life for typical usage and a weight that may affect portability, it's less ideal for on-the-go use. It has a good build quality and effective heat management, ensuring comfortable use during demanding tasks. The backlit keyboard with a number pad and additional features like a fingerprint reader enhance the user experience, especially for professionals. It is released in May 2023 and runs on Windows 11 Home, making it a contemporary option for those seeking a new laptop with recent features. Give Feedback

Tech Critter

Kok Kee | February 2023
"I think the ASUS Vivobook 16X is fantastic. Great performance, decent battery life, good keyboard and trackpad, and a massive screen – just that the screen quality itself is kinda subpar. If you’re okay with the screen, then I think this is an okay laptop. However, I’d like to see a price drop."
