Asus Vivobook 16 specs
As its name implies, the Asus Vivobook 16 features a large 16-inch, IPS display pushing a WUXGQ (1920 x 1200p) resolution in a 16:10 aspect ratio. The display is also capable of an up to 300nits of peak brightness with 45% coverage of the NTSC colour gamut; no fancy refresh rates here as you’ll only get the standard 60Hz panel with the Vivobook 16.
Under the hood, the Vivobook 16 has the Zen 3-based AMD Ryzen 5 7530U with 8GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD on the base model, with the higher tier laptop packing a Ryzen 7 7730U with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD instead. Keeping it all cool is an Asus IceBlade fan cooling system with dual air vents. You’ll also find Windows 11 Home out of the box.
For I/O meanwhile you’ll find a USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port, two USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a USB-A 2.0 port, a HDMI 1.4 port, a 3.5mm combo audio jack and a DC-in port. You’ll also get support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 wireless connectivity. Keeping the lights on meanwhile is a 42Whr battery. Other features of note include a 720p webcam with privacy shutter, a fingerprint sensor, and a full sized keyboard with 1.4mm key travel.
