Reviews for the Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED N6506

100% Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (N6506) Review: A high-quality all-rounder for a reasonable price
Source: It Pro English
The new Asus Vivobook Pro 15 epitomizes a laptop designed for content creation and graphics-intensive productivity. It offers the option of two Intel Meteor Lake-H CPUs – the Ultra 7 155H or the Ultra 9 185H – and two Nvidia GPUs, the RTX4050 and the RTX4060. All models have a colorful and color-accurate 2,880 x 1,620 OLED panel with a 120hHz refresh rate and a MUX switch to maximize the GPU's potential. Only the range-topping Core Ultra 185H RTX 4060 model is currently slated for launch in the UK for £1,599 (£1,333 ex VAT). There's no news on UK availability or price for the Core Ultra 155H and RTX 4050 machines, but it's probably safe to assume they will cost around £1,300 (£1,085 ex VAT) when and if launched in Blighty. That's not a bad price when the obvious competition in the form of Apple's MacBook Pro 16 will set you back perilously close to £3,000.

ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (N6506) review – Killer Display, Lasting Battery, Minor Compromises
Source: Laptop Media English
The ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (N6506) is a nice surprise in its class. It’s a multipurpose device because of the powerful hardware and the great OLED display (Samsung ATNA56AC02-1 (SDC4180)). The latter has a 3K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and infinite contrast ratio which is great news for all users. The panel is very color-accurate and it covers 100% of the sRGB and DCI-P3 gamuts. The only con of this screen is the PWM usage but there is an “OLED Flicker-Free Dimming” slider in the MyASUS app. This option is a life-saver for people who are going to use the device for long hours of work or watching movies in a dimmed environment. The so-called IceCool Pro cooling system is capable. The powerful Core Ultra 9 185H and the GeForce RTX 4060 can maintain high clocks no matter the load.

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.
