When it comes to a laptop for productivity, there are lots of options to choose from which might make it difficult to choose which one is the best for you. But if you’re someone in the creative field, whether in school or at work, chances are that you’ll want a laptop with powerful graphics and a beefy processor.
If such a laptop is what you’re looking for, then you’re in luck! ASUS is offering the new Vivobook 16X – a laptop that promises to be a true productivity workhorse for your creative needs, whether it’s for editing photos and videos, or if you need something that can also handle office work with ease. On top of this, the laptop also promises to be a great partner if you need some R&R, whether it’s through binge-watching or gaming.
So, if you’re looking at a new productivity machine but need more convincing before you drop some dough on the Vivobook 16X (K3605), here’s why it’s a reliable machine for work and play.
Powered by a Proper Intel 13th Generation H-series Processor
When you’re in the market for a productivity laptop, chances are that you’ve seen many options with Intel U-series processors. Laptops powered by these processors still offer good performance for work, though they’re designed for more portable laptops.
If your work needs require more power, what you need is a laptop with an H-series processor. To give you some perspective, many Intel-powered gaming laptops are powered by an H-series processor. That’s because this is Intel’s high-performance line with higher TDPs for extra performance in demanding tasks.
With this in mind, the Vivobook 16X is a capable work partner for creative professionals and budding content creators. That’s because it is powered by an Intel Core i5-13500H processor.
You can also rest easy when it comes to multitasking. That’s because this laptop has 16GB of RAM so you can have many programs open without much slowdown. This is a key feature that some may overlook as many laptops are billed for productivity despite only having 8GB of RAM.
Plus, the laptop has 512GB of SSD storage, meaning you should have ample space for your files, all while having fast and easy access to them.
NVIDIA RTX 4050 with Studio Drivers for Stability and Power
Having a capable processor is one thing, but if you’re someone who edits videos on the go or needs extra oomph for graphic-heavy tasks, what you’ll need is a laptop with a dedicated GPU.
You won’t be disappointed on this front with the new Vivobook 16X. That’s because the laptop features an NVIDIA RTX 4050 graphics card for laptops with 6GB of VRAM. This gives the new Vivobook lots of graphics power to spare which is a godsend when rendering videos. The GPU also gives the laptop capabilities for 3D and other creative applications.
Unlike gaming laptops, the Vivobook’s GPU is branded as a Studio card. What this means is that it has NVIDIA’s Studio drivers by default. Unlike Game Ready drivers which are the latest from NVIDIA, Studio drivers are optimized with performance and reliability for creative applications. This should mean you won’t run into any issues when running graphics-intensive programs.
Of course, even with the Studio driver, you can still very much play games on this laptop. The RTX 4050 and Intel Core i5-13500H combo provide great gaming capabilities. Plus, the laptop has a MUX Switch, meaning the GPU can be connected to the display directly for a more responsive gaming experience.
Thanks to this, the Vivobook 16X is a nice device for content creators who like playing games to relax during their downtime.
Large 16-inch Screen for on-the-go Productivity and Entertainment
Working on the go isn’t the best experience with some laptops considering how small their displays are. Thankfully, that’s not the case with the Vivobook 16X. As its name implies, this laptop features a large 16-inch screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio and a WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolution.
Thanks to its large screen and high resolution, you’ll have a great time when using this laptop while outside – no need to squint when you’re working on a video with a long timeline with lots of layers.
What’s more, the screen’s tall aspect ratio makes it an even better match for productivity. After all, having a taller display lets you fit in more of your digital workspace.
The laptop’s screen is also bright and vibrant for an IPS display. This, plus the WUXGA resolution means you can watch your favorite movies and shows here and have a great viewing experience.
Flexible Connectivity and Reliable Usability
For any creative laptop, having a wealth of connectivity options is a plus. In this aspect, the Vivobook 16X delivers. That’s because the laptop has two USB-Type A ports, a Type-C port that supports charging via USB Power Delivery, a headphone/mic combo jack, and even a full-size HDMI port. The addition of an HDMI port is definitely a welcome one given how useful it is and how many laptops omit one.
On top of connectivity, the laptop is also a reliable daily driver, not only in terms of performance but also when it comes to battery life.
Despite the power of the H-series processor, it’s also surprisingly power-efficient when you’re using it for browsing or lighter workloads. In fact, you can even get 6+ hours of use on a single charge with this – quite impressive for a laptop designed for powerful productivity.
Finally, design-wise, the Vivobook 16X has a great combination of eye-catching looks while still being a good fit for any office. Even with its street styling, this laptop is tough and durable as it passes the MIL-STD 810H US military-grade standard test with flying colors, meaning it should last you for a long time.
As a bonus, the laptop’s large trackpad and keyboard make for a comfortable work experience – great news if you’re often working on projects while out and about.
