Choosing the right laptop that caters to one’s needs and lifestyle may be a daunting task with many choices available in the market. More often than not, Filipinos must choose between portability over performance, performance over a better display, or a better display over portability. What if there’s a bigger and better 16-inch laptop that balances users’ needs without compromising anything?
Lifestyle Guide: How to choose the right 16-inch laptop
Enter the latest ASUS Vivobook and Zenbook series – a wide range of 16-inch laptop devices ideal for school, work, entertainment, or content creation. These compact and powerful laptops are designed to accommodate a variety of Filipino lifestyles, featuring the best specs and unique features for optimum productivity and creativity.
Choose OLED as the gold standard
ASUS brings the beauty of an OLED display to its 16-inch laptops providing users with a viewing experience that’s almost true to life. With a world-leading 3.2K 120Hz 16:10 OLED display, images on ASUS Vivobook Pro 16 OLED (K6602) are vibrant and popping. With the bigger screen, real estate agents, designers, and artists can see every line and shade of their drafts. Color-grade and color-match like the pros, as Vivobook Pro 16 OLED has a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and Pantone-validated, ensuring supremely accurate colors – may it be in a dark editing room or a brightly-lit café. For those who love post-processing videos, having an OLED display on an editing device only means flicker-less and smooth motions, especially in those fast-paced scenes.
Multitasking is also more efficient as Vivobook Pro 16 OLED features up to 12th Generation Intel Core i7-12700H CPU, 16 GB RAM, up to 1 TB PCIe SSD, and up to a studio-grade of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU. It can handle fast video editing, entry-level 3D animation workflows, and the like, so users can spend more time producing great content and less time staring at progress bars.
Aside from having a bigger display, ASUS engineered Creator-centric features to amplify their creative workflow. The MUX Switch on Vivobook Pro 16 OLED allows reduced latency and increased performance during 3D works. This feature also comes in handy when creators enjoy fast-paced gaming during break time. The ASUS Dial on ASUS Zenbook Pro 16X OLED (UX7602) and the ASUS DialPad on ASUS Vivobook Pro 16X OLED (N7601) give creators a more ergonomic and streamlined way to work. This rotary control lets them fully control parameter adjustments in select Adobe apps. These 16-inch ASUS Creator laptops also come with a free three-month subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud.
Choose the perfect balance between performance and design
Gone are the days when performance and design could not co-exist in one’s school or work laptop. ASUS Vivobook 16X (M1603) and ASUS Vivobook 16 (X1605) make it possible to have an all-around high-performing productivity device in a compact design. Ideal for a hybrid school or work setup, these devices have top specs supporting an expansive 16-inch LCD wide-view NanoEdge display, all in a sleek body. Whether creating a feasibility plan, reviewing documents, taking virtual classes or meetings, or watching the latest TV series, users can enjoy a more immersive viewing experience, all thanks to the real estate a 16-inch display can only offer.
While the exteriors of Vivobook 16X and Vivobook 16 are discreet and polished, they pack a punch on the inside. Under the hood of these Classic Vivobook devices are the latest AMD and Intel processors. Vivobook 16X comes with up to AMD Ryzen 7 5800H Mobile Processor, and Vivobook 16 features an up to 12th Generation Intel Core i7-1255U CPU. Plus, the 8 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 512 GB PCIe SSD on both models give a performance boost for all-day, all-night productivity. To top it all off, both Vivobook 16X and Vivobook 16 are pre-installed with a free lifetime license to Office 2021 Home & Student.
Choose upgraded features
ASUS’ 16-inch laptops are more than just their display and internal specs. They are also designed with many features that take productivity to the next level. Upgrade that video conferencing experience for school or work as the ASUS 16-inch devices are equipped with ASUS AI Noise-Canceling Technology and ASUS 3D Noise Reduction. These features allow a distraction-free crisp video call without those unnecessary background noise and upgrade the webcam’s image clarity in real-time. Their ASUS ErgoSense keyboards also provide maximum comfort when typing, especially when working on those long reports. They are treated with ASUS Antibacterial Guard1 for maximum protection and are certified MIL-STD-810H U.S. military grade2.
