Asus Vivobook Pro 16X in review: All-rounder with some weaknesses
On the plus side of the large 16-inch laptop, the powerful components must not be understated. Although the Intel Core i7-11370H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 are not quite the latest and greatest from the chip market, but they are still more than just sufficient. All major parts of the chassis are made of aluminum. Notably, the weave coating of the lid is an interesting feature. The layer is grease-phobic and matte. Additionally, it looks very sleek. Unfortunately, Asus has dropped the ball when it comes to the build quality. There are uneven gaps in several places as a result.
The main attraction of the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X is its Pantone validated display. The 16:10 OLED display with a native resolution of 3840 x 2400 pixels covers 100 % of the sRGB, AdobeRGB, and DisplayP3 color spaces. The color deviations are low as well. This is not necessarily the case for every device with a Pantone validated display. The pantone color palette only includes around 4000 colors. Outside of these specific colors, a certified display may still deviate wildly from the original colors. The only downside of the OLED display is its glossy surface.
All in all, the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X is a laptop that may be particularly interesting for content creators and digital designers. With a good system performance and an outstanding display, the Vivobook Pro 16X appears to be predestined for such tasks. Unfortunately, there are not very many ports. The full details on what the laptop can and cannot do are available in our in-depth review of the Asus Vivobook Pro 16X.
