    Thanks for the great review. How would you rate the Vivo X in terms of noise levels on idle and during heavy load? How does it fare compared to game consoles like the XBox One or the PS4 in that regard?

      When compared to Xbox One it is slightly quieter. We did not have a PS4 available for comparison.

    Thanks. Nice review. Like the product’s minimalist design yet have a decent gaming specs. Have already bought this and just waiting for the delivery. Decided to upgrade from a gtx860m laptop (3yrs old) to this mini desktop, i’m targeting for high/stable fps gaming on 1080p screen only, i think this should be enough.

        Hi, got my mini pc for a week now. For me it’s worth it, my gameplay (DS3, ME:A, Surge) are far better than my 2yr old 860m laptop, 1080p x 60 fps on selective High-Ultra settings is now attainable. My only observation is the loud fan noise during full load, to me seems it’s bit louder compared to my Ps4 pro console, anyway I barely notice it when I’m fully engaged with my games. On office apps or web browsing it’s relative quite.

    Bullshit. Writing documents and browsing net is something you can do with your phone even these days, those should not be standards of giving such low powered piece of crap a positive review.
    I bought the dam thing and it lacks power and bunch at every move, even my 8 years old machine that it bought it to replace had and has more kick into it.

    So if you are not a compleate douche or a corporate lackey do your job properly or quit giving bad information.
    Its and expensive piece of hardware and I personaly am stuck with it, cause i a dont have proper grounds to take it back to the shop.

    Its a glorified xbox, and it doesent even run older games in full resolution.

    Save your money, if you want a computer, dont buy it, unless for sale for 300e

      This PC is not a “low powered” device. Just look at the numbers in our benchmarks. If a 8-years-old machine is faster, did you consider that you may have a faulty unit with some hardware issues? You might want to use your warranty and ask for a replacement or repairs.

    Some people have complained about the computer having to “warm up” or just never actually warming up at all? What is your input on this?

    • Ciprian Adrian Rusen says:

      Go to the second page of our review and see the temperatures we measured during testing.

    An interesting review. I think that ASUS VivoPC X is one of the best powerful portable PCs. Unlike most other large gaming computers, this PC is relatively lightweight and I can take it with you on trips. I like to play VR games and often play in the center of virtual reality in Melbourne – or play at home. To play quality VR games it is best to use a powerful PC. On some business trips, I don’t have time to look for a virtual reality center, so this PC helps me to play my favorite games anywhere.
