Reviews for the Asus VivoBook Pro 15 OLED N6506M

90% ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (2024) review: creative pro laptop gets gaming-friendly update
Source: Creative Bloq English
Really, the only reason not to buy the ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (2024) is if you have the 2023 ASUS Vivobook Pro 15. It's an iterative but noticeable upgrade to that model, and offers a fantastic balance of performance, screen splendour and price, with graphics performance reaching into true professional territory for a price well under £2,000. It's an all-rounder, but one for someone with serious aspirations in at least one of the creative or gaming realms. The only notable downside is that the screen isn't a touchscreen, and a numpad that's just a teeny bit cramped (but just a teeny bit), and those aren't big grumbles. ASUS is on a serious roll at the moment, and the 2024 Vivobook Pro 15 OLED is another entry into a growing win column.

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
