Asus presents its new Zenbook S 13 OLEDthe notebook World’s thinnest 13.3-inch OLED. It is an exceptional product from all points of view: design, performance and sustainability. The Zenbook S 13 OLED has one thickness of only 1 cm and a weight of just 1 kg, ideal for those looking for maximum portability. And after seeing it in preview, as editorial staff of we feel to say that, beyond any surprising technical specification, it is really nice.
Furthermore, it is the first carbon neutral notebook from Asusmade with recycled materials and with an eco-friendly packaging.
Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED, the world’s thinnest OLED laptop
The aluminum frame has a finish in plasma ceramic which makes it resistant and refined. But the Zenbook S 13 OLED doesn’t give up anything in terms of power: it mounts the new processors 13th Gen Intel Core, up to 32GB RAM, up to 1TB PCIe SSD and a battery of 63 Wh which guarantees high autonomy.

The lid also houses a bespoke OLED panel, which made it possible to reduce the thickness by 30% compared to traditional panels.
Asus has also worked on a smart internal layout, using circuit boards with fewer layers and more transistors, which guarantee high performance and low weight. The motherboard was designed to accommodate a extra thin fan that improves cooling. This caused the bottom of the laptop to be 25% thinner compared to the previous generation. Finally, the choice of light and resistant materials: Asus has used a magnesium and aluminum alloy for the keyboard deckwhile the touchpad is covered in ultra-thin glasswhich helps to further reduce the thickness of the keyboard deck by 25%.

Paper packing inserts can also be done easily transform into handy laptop stands. What’s more, the Zenbook S 13 OLED exceeds the energy efficiency standard ENERGY STAR by 43% to use less electricity.
Also, Asus first used a special process to produce a plasma ceramic aluminum material to put on the lid. This process usjust pure water and electricity and requires no organic compounds, acids or heavy metalsi.
The Zenbook S 13 OLED has a processor 13th Generation Intel Core i7certificate Intel Evosupported by a 32GB LPDDR5 RAM and 1TB PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD. The battery from 63 Wh guarantees a long autonomy, while the WiFi 6E ensures fast and stable connections.
The Zenbook S 13 OLED doesn’t give up on connectivity, with a full complement of I/O ports, including two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C, una porta USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, una porta HDMI 2.1 e un jack audio da 3,5 mm. For video conferencing, the FHD IR camera features AI-enhanced visual effects and AI noise cancellation technology, as well as biometric recognition support with Windows Hello.
The sound system Harman Kardon con Dolby Atmos delivers immersive, multi-dimensional sound. While the touchpad Asus ErgoSense and the numeric keypad Asus NumberPad 2.0 they offer easy navigation and efficient multitasking.
