Reviews for the Asus Vivobook 16X X1603ZA, i3-1220P

70% Asus Vivobook 16X review: Big, bright and cheap
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus Vivobook 16X is a big, cheap laptop — for better and for worse. It’s a little slow for anything beyond casual productivity and the plastic shell can feel a little cheap to the touch. But all of this makes it a fantastic home laptop for the whole family.

Intel UHD Graphics 64EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Alder Lake SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture (Xe) with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. 

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i3-1220P: A lower mid-range 28 W Alder Lake family CPU featuring 2 performance cores and 8 efficient cores along with the 64 EU UHD Graphics GPU, an Iris Xe in all but name. Core i3-1220P runs at 1.1 GHz to 4.4 GHz. This SoC is designed for use in ultra-light, ultra-thin (yet passively cooled) laptops. The i3's performance cores have the all-important thread-doubling Hyper-Threading technology for a total of 12 threads.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


16.00":

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.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. is a major Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer based in Taipei, founded in 1989. Under the Asus brand name, the company manufactures a wide range of products, including laptops, desktops, motherboards, graphics cards, monitors, smartphones and networking equipment, complete systems and PC components for end users.

Under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand name, ASUS manufactures gaming laptops known by gamers for their powerful specifications, dedicated graphics cards, high refresh rate displays and advanced cooling systems.

Beyond gaming, a wide range of notebooks are offered for different needs and budgets, from ultra-slim and lightweight ultrabooks to versatile 2-in-1 convertibles and budget-friendly options. In 2023, Asus had a 7% global market share of the PC market.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.


70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
