The demand for laptops has dramatically increased since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic last year, forcing tech companies to release increasingly cutting-edge offerings if they wish to remain relevant and competitive in the rapidly-evolving space. One of the more impressive recent examples of this is the new ZenBook 13 OLED laptop from ASUS.
Equipped with a 150-degree hinge, the ZenBook 13 OLED packs an Iris Xe graphics card-supported 13.3” OLED HDR (1920 x 1080) display with 400 nits of brightness, TÜV Rheinland low blue light-certification, 2.9mm surrounding bezels that allow for a whopping 88% screen-to-body ratio, and the ability to support 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Running Windows 10 Pro through an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, this lightweight laptop offers up to 1TB of SSD storage, 32GB of RAM, and boasts a 67Wh battery that offers 13 hours of use and can receive a 60% charge in under 50 minutes, as well as a Mil-Spec-certification, a pair of Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, one HDMI 2.0, a single USB 3.2 Type-A port, and a microSD slot. What’s more, at 0.55” thick and 2.45lbs, the ZenBook 13 OLED isn’t just remarkably thin, it’s also reportedly the world’s lightest OLED laptop yet. Slated for a release in the coming months, the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED (or UX325) starts at $900.
