Meet one of the handiest laptops in the market, the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED
There’s a common thought that when it comes to laptops—the bigger, the better. It often checks out because more space means more functionality. More room for advanced features and wider screens make a case as the best mini-home theater on your lap and whatnot, even if it means carrying a heavy device wherever you go. But as technology advances, tech brands continue to bring the same powerful features into more compact and handier hardware to allow productivity on-the-go. After all, we don’t always work from home now. One of the recent contenders is the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED, which is equal parts sleek, sustainable and superior for those who work from anywhere, anytime.
Spoiler alert: it lives up to the hype.
How sleek is it?
ASUS boasts the Zenbook S 13 OLED as the slimmest 13-inch OLED ultrabook, which is compact and lightweight in non-tech terms. So despite it looking tiny, it packs a mean punch of power, so its size doesn’t affect its performance. The ceramic texture of the PEO coating makes it look like a premium device, matching its look with the lengths it can go—not to mention scratch-resistant. Plus, no ports were sacrificed in downsizing such a superpower of a laptop, offering two TBT4 bolts, one Type-A, one HDMI and one audio jack so we can do away with extra accessories.
The Zenbook S 13 OLED is 1cm slim and only one kilogram heavy, making much of a difference when carrying it out and about. Honestly, I needed more time to get used to the size because I thought it was too fragile to withstand my daily travels all over the metro. But as the days progressed, I looked forward to working anywhere with the device. One of the small details is that the top screen extends when you open it, offering a self-elevated mechanism so the heat doesn’t stay trapped underneath your device, AKA the common factor as to why devices live shorter lives.
What makes it sustainable?
The tech industry is responsible for a significant amount of global carbon emissions. That’s why ASUS continues to implement and follow solutions that help them achieve their goals for a sustainable future, which means also being conscious of their contribution when manufacturing products. The plasma ceramic aluminum components of the Zenbook S 13 are fully recyclable at the end of their lifespan. At the same time, corrosion protection focuses more on strengthening the layer instead of additional sprayed-on coatings that make recycling more difficult.
The ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED comes in FSC Mix-certified, recyclable and compostable packaging. But apart from that, this product achieves a 50% lower carbon footprint. The model also exceeds the ENERGY STAR energy efficiency standards by 43%, reducing electricity consumption. Plus, we all know the extra papers of manuals—the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED comes with an AR effect e-manual. All these assure the consumers and users that they’re supporting a brand that wants to make it into the future with them.
The verdict? It’s superior!
Apart from the sleek design and sustainability pledge, the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED, an Evo-certified device, has firepower that lives up to the rest of its premium features. It operates on a 13th Gen Intel Core CPU with a highly efficient fast-charging 63Wh battery. Based on personal experience, I only plug it in for over an hour daily, as the battery life reaches 14 hours during each cycle. These help me switch between work and play in a snap, wherever or whenever my mood needs to stay productive or relaxed. The laptop can keep up with the lucrative environments that come with my job and personal life, from writing, streaming, editing, taking meetings and navigating some pretty heavy spreadsheets.
As far as the display is concerned, the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED does it completely right. The 16:10 Lumina OLED Panel boasts a capacity of 2.8k high resolution and a PANTONE-validated screen, offering more real estate for vibrant viewing and multitasking experience. So the display never disappoints, whether it’s trying to spot things I need to adjust as we go or just enjoying a rich music video. As someone who works the music and entertainment beat, its sound system by Harman Kardon is an absolute beaut and lets me hear every layer of the song with its speakers alone. Literally, earphones who? I’m playing my music out loud on this device! Crisp, clear and high-quality audio support the unique screen for an immersive audio-visual experience, all thanks to Dolby Vision/Atmos.
So, what are you waiting for? Make that worthy upgrade that will help you work efficiently and enjoy interests seamlessly with the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED. It’s time to say goodbye to devices that double as weights when carried around because a sleek, sustainable and superior option is just within reach.
