While it may not pack the most powerful internal components, it has all the processing power you’ll need for day-to-day tasks, including anything the Microsoft Office suite can throw at it. 512GB of solid-state storage is also plenty for your workload, unless you spend a lot of time working with super high-resolution video.

ASUS has also made sustainability more of a focus with the Vivobook range, and this model uses 30% post-consumer recycled plastics in its construction, and even more commendably it comes in 100% recyclable packaging. Single-use plastics should be on their way out, so it’s good to see ASUS embracing this trend.

There are also a couple of other features that aren’t present on every competitor – one of the most beneficial is having no less than four USB ports, which are harder to come by as laptops get thinner and thinner, plus a welcome addition for anyone who has a few peripherals they want to use. The Vivobook 16 also sports a 180-degree screen hinge and a built-in webcam shutter. 

In short, this is a fantastic deal – a £150 discount on an already great value-for-money laptop. If you’re in need of an affordable laptop for productivity, this could be the one for you.
