ASUS today announced Zenbook S 13 OLED, the world’s slimmest OLED laptop. The Zenbook S 13 OLED is incredibly portable as it weighs just 1 kg and measures 1 cm thickness. ASUS used CNC machining to make the most efficient use of the available space for components. Find the details on how ASUS achieved this incrediblly thin profile below.
- Display layer infusion: To achieve the incredibly slim profile, we’ve embedded a thinner yet fully featured FHD IR camera directly into the CNC-machined lid. We’ve also used a specially designed ultraslim OLED panel, resulting in a lid that’s 30% slimmer.
- Optimized internal layout: By using precision CNC machining, we make more space available in the interior for components. We use circuit boards with fewer layers and a higher wiring density, with many more transistors, giving better performance with less weight in a more compact space. The motherboard is precision-engineered to house an additional, ultrathin fan that increases airflow for better cooling. This makes the lower part of the laptop about 25% slimmer.
- Materials choice: To minimize weight, durable and lightweight magnesium-aluminum alloy is used for the keyboard deck, formed with a CNC cutting process to create a rigid structure that doesn’t need any extra support. An extremely thin glass covering is used for the touchpad, resulting in a further 25% reduction in thickness in the keyboard deck.
Despite its thin form factor, the Zenbook S 13 OLED delivers great performance, thanks to the power of up to 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processors with 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 1 TB PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD. It also comes with a 63 Wh battery that can deliver 14 hours of video playback.
The 16:10 2.8K (2880 x 1800) ASUS Lumina OLED display that’s Dolby Vision certified, with Pantone Validated color rendering and VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification offers great visual experience. The Harman Kardon-certified audio system with immersive Dolby Atmos sound has a smart amplifier combined with ASUS Audio Booster technology to boost volume by up to 5.25X. The 9.5%-larger ASUS ErgoSense touchpad comes with an anti-fingerprint coating.
The Zenbook S 13 OLED comes with the following ports:
- 2 x Thunderbolt 4 Type-C
- 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
- 1 x HDMI 2.1 (TMDS)
- 1 x Audio jack
The Zenbook S 13 OLED will be available in Basalt Gray and Ponder Blue colors.
