We reviewed the Intel model Asus VivoBook 16X, and liked its bright, colorful display, and large keyboard with numberpad. The Ryzen version has these same characteristics and an ample amount of connectivity ports. It has 1 x USB-C 3.2 Gen port, 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, 1 x USB 2.0 port, 1 x HDMI port, and 3.5mm audio/mic combo jack. At 14.1 x 9.8 x 0.8 inches and 4.1 pounds, the Asus VivoBook 16X is more portable than the Dell Inspiron 16 Plus (14 x 9.7 x 0.7 inches, 4.4 pounds). 

For just under $450, the Asus VivoBook 16X is an exceptional value for the price. There's no telling how long Newegg's deal will last, so we recommend you grab it while you can.
