    I think this matches up nicely with Dell's Inspiron 16 Plus, and that even comes with an RTX 3060 with 3 fans and 5 heatpipes. Any particular reason you guys haven't reviewed that laptop yet?

      we don't get access to Dell review units, and their products also ship very late over here.

    Great review, very insightful!
    Are you guys planning on reviewing the Vivobook Pro 15 as well? Thanks!

      Yes, curently working on both the K3500 and the M3500 models.

    Amazing review!! Shame about no USB-C PD and only 1x USB-C port, that's the only deal-breaker for me for this price.

    Thanks for the review :)

    Would you happen to have the screen dimension (inches or centimeters) without the bezel ?

    Went for a new laptop to replace my macbook pro 15.4 inches from 2012 and discovered that my actual screen was bigger than the vivobook pro 15 (15.6 inches). So i thought the 16X would be the perfect match if screen size without bezel is the same size than what I actually have.

    thanks and have a nice day !

    Screen glossy? No, thanks! Screen mattte is much better, at least for photography.

    Just want to say thank you for the very comprehensive review, including some of the ergonomic details others seem to lack. It was very helpful indeed.

    The article says "Compared to the AMD models, this Intel variant also gets USB-C Thunderbolt 4 support with video/charging, but all the other ports are the same."

    Does this mean the AMD model cannot connect an external display that uses the Nvidia graphics chip, or does this mean that neither can use the nVidia graphics chip, but additionally the AMD cannot connect via USB-C to a display?

    I could probably have worded this better, but I hope you understand what I'm asking!

      AS far as I remember, the AMD version is USB-C 3.2 with 10Gbps transfer, DP video, and charging. You'll want to double-check, though, since I haven't reviewed that one

    Mr. Andrei: Great review.
    I have had one white laptop with glossy screen. Painful. I had a choice to see reflections of the keyboard/hands or my shirt. Of course I could turn off all the room lights and wear a black shirt. So never again glossy for me. This Vivobook 16x is silver not white and has the darker version choice. So better than white. I wish you would comment more on screen reflections.
    I like the performance of the AMD version, but I need Thunderbolt for working with large files & many files during processing. Some of my processing runs for 45 minutes on my 3 yrs old XPS 15 9570.

    Purchased this Vivobook Pro OLED 16 with i7.
    After two months it started to freeze with strange patterns appearing on the screen. Spent significant time trying to trouble shoot with Asus via the phone (updated bios, reinstalled display/graphic card drivers etc). Very disappointing and despite the issues, they don't offer a replacement or refund, can only send in the computer for service (in which case, what do I use to work on?).
    Will not consider it again.

    Has anyone else experienced slow charging via the Thunderbolt port? I bought a 100W Anker GaN charger for the laptop so that I didn't have to lug the bulky traditional charger around, but I can't get more than 50-60W peak for some reason which means the battery drains under high usage, whereas I have no issues with the normal charger. Before I return the charger, I wanted to make sure it couldn't be the laptop's issue or some configuration problem, as the manual says the laptop should support 20V/5A charging via the Thunderbolt port and that's what the charger claims to be capable of as well.
