Deal | Asus VivoBook 15X OLED with Ryzen 5 5600H CPU and 512 GB SSD on sale for US$550
Newegg is currently shipping the latest VivoBook 15X OLED for $250 USD off the original retail price of $800. The configuration is notable for its OLED panel which should offer significantly deeper colors, faster response times, and deeper contrast ratio than most other laptops in the same price range. Its Ryzen H-series CPU should also provide better performance than the typical U-series option.
Core specifications include:
- Ryzen 5 5600H CPU
- Integrated Radeon RX Vega 7 GPU
- 15.6-inch OLED 1080p display w/ 100% DCI-P3 colors
- 8 GB DDR4 soldered + open 1x SODIMM slot
- 512 GB PCIe3 x4 NVMe SSD
- 70 Wh battery
- 3x USB-A, 1x USB-C, HDMI 1.4, 3.5 mm headset
- 35.68 x 22.76 x 1.99 cm
- 1.7 kg
While CPU performance and display quality are top notch considering the price, there are still a few cut corners to keep in mind. The 8 GB of single-channel RAM, for example, severely limits both graphics performance and the multi-tasking capabilities of the laptop. Fortunately, the bottom panel can be easily removed and additional RAM can be added.
Users should also be aware that the USB-C port does not support Power Delivery, Thunderbolt, or DisplayPort features. Thus, external monitors must connect via the integrated HDMI 1.4 port instead. See our full review on the model soon to learn more about its features and performance.
