ASUS brought in something unique last week and it is the world’s lightest and thinnest OLED laptop ever. Let’s welcome the Zenbook S 13 OLED.
Packed with modern style points alongside exceptional achievement in the weight class, it features the unbeatable 1cm super slim profile and a chassis at just 1kg which is even lighter than just tablets out there. The brand attributed the possibility of such a feat to CNC-machined parts including the lid and reduced PCB layers but with a higher wiring density to keep all the performance and functions you can find in a normal-sized laptop.
For all the eyes can notice, the wonderful 16:10 2.8K ASUS Lumina OLED display provides 100% DCI-P3 color coverage with color accuracy of Delta E<1 for the best-in-class display for both work and entertainment. Furthermore, it is PANTONE Validated and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified in addition to Dolby Vision. Chassis color-wise, there’s the classic Ponder Blue alongside the new Basalt Gray.
Under the hood, this Intel Evo-certified machine can be configured to have an up to 13th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU to go with 32GB of LPDDR5 RAn and 1TB of PCIe 4.0 SSD. I/O choices see a wide variety of 2x Thunderbolt 4, 1x USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, 1X HDMI 2.1, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The entire thing is powered by a 63WHr battery.
On the other hand, the Vivobook 15X OLED is for the “no flairs, just work” type of people. Hosting a high-grade 120Hz OLED panel at 2.8K resolution, it also has 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and is PANTONE Validated. For those who need to work with it extensively, the TÜV Rheinland low blue light emission and flicker-free operation should make the eyes a bit easier.
It also makes use of the latest 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processor in combination with 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage together with high-speed WiFi 6E connectivity to keep your workflow uninterrupted.
