Reviews for the Asus Vivobook 16X F1603ZA
72% Asus Vivobook 16X OLED Review: Roomy OLED Laptop for Less
Getting a roomy, high-resolution OLED display at this price feels like a steal, but you’ll need to make a number of tradeoffs to get away with it. The flimsy plastic enclosure is the biggest concession you’re forced to make, and content creators looking for an affordable, big-screen OLED laptop will need to limp by with integrated graphics and only 512GB of storage. And the tinny speakers limit its appeal as an entertainment laptop. We recommend stepping up to the Pro version if possible. It’s roughly $350 more, and you get the same great display with better build quality, faster processing and a discrete GPU for beginner content creation. For $300 more, the Acer Swift Edge offers a 16-inch, 16:10 OLED display inside a slim yet rigid magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis. It also regularly goes on sale at Costco for less than $1,000. Or if you don’t mind a smaller display, consider the HP Pavilion Plus 14, which comes in many configurations at more affordable prices.
