Apr 21 2023

ASUS Zenbook laptops have set a benchmark for the perfect combination of elegance, performance, and versatility for many years.

The new generation of the thin and lightweight Zenbook laptops follow the principle of “more with less,” providing users with extraordinary benefits packed into a compact body. These include minimized environmental impact, uncompromising performance, immersive viewing experiences, and maximum portability.

Read on to learn more about the new Zenbook laptops.

Who Needs a Thin and Light Laptop

ASUS Zenbook laptops are defined as thin and light. They are designed with ultraportability in mind. At ASUS, we consider thin and light laptops to be those that are less than 2 cm thick and weigh 1.5 kg or less.

A thin and light Zenbook is ideal for those who are often on the go. Offering excellent performance and a strong battery, Zenbooks are a great solution for users with all kinds of needs — from common, everyday tasks to content creation on the go. No matter the task, there’s a Zenbook for it.

Innovation With Purpose

At ASUS, we are always striving to deliver more than just products. Our purpose is to create a positive impact — be it by protecting the environment or by providing users with exceptional digital experiences.

This year’s newly-launched Zenbook laptops give users more — more care, power, color, and freedom — with less impact, limits, rules, and gravity. With Zenbook, you get more power and functionality with less size.

Zenbook S 13 OLED — More Care, Less Impact

The new Zenbook S 13 OLED is a 13.3-inch laptop designed with the principle of more care, less impact in mind. It’s the most sustainable, uncompromising new Zenbook. This laptop is perfect for eco-conscious users who expect the best from their laptop, without a compromise between sustainability and quality. The tough cover makes it especially suitable for those always on the go, offering durability with a sophisticated look.

This laptop cuts the carbon footprint in half, compared to one made of non-recycled metal*. Multiple parts are made with recycled, sustainable materials: the top cover and bottom case are made of 50% post-industrial recycled aluminum. The keyboard cover is made of 90% post-industrial recycled (PIR) magnesium aluminum. Keycaps are made of 50% post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR), and the speakers are made with 5% ocean-bound and 45% PCR plastic. Plus, the PCB on this laptop is completely halogen-free.

There are two colorways available: Basalt Gray and Ponder Blue. The Basalt Gray color variant comes with a plasma ceramic coating. The ceramization technique gives the metal alloy a longer lifespan by increasing its hardness to 8H level, and making it resistant to wear and fading, as well as improving its thermal isolation properties, better protecting the insides of your laptop. The coating is also anti-abrasive and protects the laptop chassis from corrosion. Not to mention that the cover with the ceramic coating is aesthetically pleasing and gives an interesting stony texture and ceramic-smooth feel to the aluminum alloy body while also having anti-fingerprint properties to ensure the laptop looks great at all times. The coating is made using an eco-friendly process, known as plasma electrolytic oxidation, or PEO, that utilizes neutral aqueous electrolytes.

The packaging for Zenbook S 13 OLED is made of FSC™*** Mix-certified paper. It is 100% recyclable and is completely glue-free. As a bonus, part of the packaging can be used as a convenient laptop stand.

The Zenbook S 13 OLED is created to meet the strict standards of EPEAT™ Gold — a leading global ecolabel covering technology products and services. EPEAT® registered products have a positive environmental and social impact across the entire product lifecycle.

At only 1 cm thin and 1 kg light, the Zenbook S 13 OLED is an ultra-thin and super-light 13.3-inch machine that you can bring with you, wherever you go. Plenty of power sits in its compact body. You can choose up to a 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 CPU and Iris® Xe graphics. You can also choose up to 32 GB of memory and up to 1 TB of storage. Despite its small chassis, the Zenbook S 13 OLED offers a full I/O lineup, with two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports, a USB Type-A 3.2 slot, an HDMI port, and an audio jack.
