Reviews for the Asus Vivobook 16 A1605

82% Asus Vivobook 16 (A1605V) Review – Red Pill Or Blue Pill?
Source: Pokde English
The ASUS Vivobook 16 in Intel form will cost slightly more than its AMD counterpart at RM3,199, but just like the Team Red’s laptop, this is a budget workhorse for those who want to get things done without blowing a big hole into their wallets. However, I’d personally stick with the AMD version because there’s more multi-core performance on offer (which will be noticeable compared to single-core), even at a slight battery life deficit.

At RM3,199, the ASUS Vivobook 16 A1605 delivers a compelling value proposition. The screen might be a limitation for specific uses, but the performance is surprisingly strong, even handling some games. I do recommend you check out this laptop if it suits your budget as we’re getting quite good value here. It’s just the screen that I wish was better.

Review – ASUS Vivobook 16 A1605: Good choice for RM3,199
Source: NLT English
So, at the end, this laptop is RM3,199 and I think it’s quite good in terms of value. Sure, the screen is might be a problem for certain use cases, but the performance is actually really good. We can even play some games on it and I think that’s great. However, if you want something at around the same price but with more performance, then take a look at this MSI laptop. I’ll leave it at the end screen here – and if you have any questions about this ASUS Vivobook 16 A1605, leave them in the comments section below. I think it’s a great laptop for many people.

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.
