In fact, the ZenBook ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED is now one of the most accessible OLED-based display-equipped Ultrabooks on the market today – about $783.22. With the integrated display of the ZenBook 13 OLED equipped with a huge range of parameters such as the OLED backplate, the sRGB color range reaches 100% – approaching the perfection of the visual experience, the question arises whether in terms of the components involved in this machine, namely the configuration, it has been reduced? Let’s go into detail!

The configuration is good enough for the vast majority of experiences

Admittedly, this machine is one of the Ultrabook models invested extremely comprehensively by ASUS. I can confirm that it is not reduced in terms of configuration compared to devices in the same segment of the market today. With a hardware combination that includes an Intel Core i5 – 1135G7 processor that comes with an Intel Iris XE graphics card, 8GB of 4266 MHz LPDDR4x bus RAM running Dual Channel, and 512GB of NVMe m.2 SSD, this is still a moderate and standard configurator at arm’s length.

In fact, you’ll also find a few machines equipped with hardware combinations that are almost identical to the ASUS ZenBook 13 Slim OLED at lower prices, however, those Ultrabooks will often have a few things to do with the user experience, typically in terms of screen visibility or product quality. In this account, ZenBook 13 OLED has done really well, it has a balance between all the things from the market experience, the performance to the machining quality!

Speaking of performance, the Intel Iris XE G7 graphics card equipped on this machine is 3 times more powerful than integrated graphics cards such as the old Intel Ultra HD620. Through practical testing, the combination of Intel Core i5 – 1135G7 with Intel Iris XE graphics card provides an immensely good experience. You can play Valorant in FullHD resolution with low setting graphics, average FPS up to 110. This means that the brothers can play nearly all of the hottest online titles in the market today with a reasonable graphic setup without any difficulties.

Obviously, with such hardware, you can use the ZenBook 13 OLED as a semi-professional multimedia machine, from photoshop with about 10 overlapping layers to building Full HD footage with many difficult visual effects, all done relatively easily on this intermediate ultrabook from the ASUS house!

Screen – The Proximity to Perfection Experience

Many of you may share the view that manufacturers will equip OLED displays with large resolutions (2K or even 4K, for example) to make the user experience of these displays absolute and irrefutable. So for a ZenBook 13 OLED equipped with an OLED display but with FullHD (1920*1080) resolution, what would it look like?

I can confirm that in terms of display experience, the screen on ZenBook 13 OLED still performs its task well. Obviously, in terms of eye flattering, the display on the ZenBook 13 OLED provides a better experience than those equipped with a 2K display but only with an IPS backplate. The cause of this is the principle of OLED display operation.

Due to the use of the individual self-luminous pixel mechanism, the pixel is completely turned off when displaying black so that it is invisible in general, the remaining color ranges have a higher prominence than traditional IPS displays. This also makes the color contrast very high so that overall, in terms of eye flattering and more broadly in terms of entertainment, the display on the ZenBook 13 OLED still shows the most prominence when compared to the Ultrabooks with integrated IPS display in the same price range. You can experience 4K movies or play online games completely easily on this screen.

Without stopping there, with the sRGB range reaching 100%, 100% adobeRGB and 100% DCI-P3, it’s obvious that large color accuracy tasks like fashion design, professional photo editing, or even video staging, the ZenBook 13 OLED display can do just that on a rounded shoulder. Overall, in terms of display experience alone, the display on the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED is absolutely worth it to compete flat against the 2K IPS monitor-integrated machines at the price range ASUS is aiming for!

Design and quality finishes – Striking a balance

Positioned as an intermediate class Ultrabook from the ASUS family, it is clear that the design and finish quality of this machine remain true to the spirit of the manufacturer – Young, modern and durable. In terms of design, the ZenBook 13 OLED still holds true to the motto that ASUS has been working on for so long on the ZenBooks. You can easily see the youth, modernity and luxury through the characteristic details of the machine such as the concentric circle on the A side, the outline on the body is purposefully chamfered as well as the details of the machine (such as hinges, keyboards,..). The certainty and investment in the level of finishing is still shown by many characteristics considered to be the identification DNA of ZenBook 13 OLED such as no flex phenomenon when keystroking as well as the whole machine does not appear any redundant details.

Taken together, ZenBook 13 OLED expresses that in a very confident way. Understandably, ASUS is one of the most notable manufacturers and has a relatively large investment in Ultrabooks in its mid-tier segment.


And that is the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED, the best candidate for the top spot in the intermediate Ultrabook segment. While some of the inherent weaknesses like the hinges aren’t really certain or the touchpad feel isn’t really impressive, with a range of strengths such as extremely good performance, the ultimate visual experience because of the OLED display or the well-invested design, the ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED is absolutely worthy of your attention in the intermediate Ultrabook segment. Not only does this machine accomplish its entertainment tasks well, ZenBook 13  can also give you the ability to work incredibly well.
