1. Remove the bottom plate

There are 11 Torx-head screws holding this laptop’s bottom panel. After you undo them, pry the panel with a plastic tool and carefully remove it from the chassis.


2. Battery

Here, we have a 96Wh battery pack. If you want to remove it, there are four Phillips-head screws securing it to the device. Make sure to unlatch the speaker cables from the battery. Before you continue, unplug the battery connector.


3. Мemory and storage

Unfortunately, all of the memory is soldered to the motherboard. Thankfully, ASUS supplies this device with up to 32GB of dual-channel RAM. As for the storage, you get one M.2 PCIe x4 slot.


4. Cooling system

In terms of cooling, there are two heat pipes of different sizes shared between the CPU and the GPU. Respectively, the large one leads to a larger heat sink, while two fans are blowing the heat away from the chassis.

ASUS Vivobook Pro 16X OLED (N7600, 11th Gen Intel) in-depth review

ASUS has always been keen on experimenting with its VivoBook brand. Their latest effort is called the VivoBook Pro 16X OLED (N7600). Unsurprisingly, the pinnacle of their engineering lies within the display options, as it offers a 16-inch 16:10 OLED unit with a 4K+ resolution. Why is it so special? Well, you get all of the benefits of OLED like deep blacks and enormously high contrast ratio, but in addition to that, you are treated to a 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and HDR True Black 500 support.All of that sounds ecstatic, but if you don't have the hardware to power it, you are left with empty [...]

Pros

  • Great price-to-performance ratio
  • Strong aluminum chassis
  • 100% sRGB and DCI-P3 coverage + HDR support
  • High resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio + fast pixel response times
  • Deep blacks and virtually infinite contrast ratio
  • DialPad
  • Fingerprint reader + MicroSD card slot

Cons

  • Uses PWM below 100 nits
  • 2 out of 3 USB Type-A ports run at 2.0 speeds
  • Soldered memory

It seems it is not possible to upgrade the memory?
Is that correct?
