Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED 2023 Overview

Design

Slim profile

The Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED, the 2023 model, is an incredibly thin and lightweight laptop. It measures a mere 10.9mm in thickness and weighs only 1kg, making it ideal for travel.

Asus proudly claims that this is the world’s slimmest 13-inch OLED laptop.

Asus says that the Zenbook S 13 OLED achieves its slim profile through advanced techniques and materials, including a thinner FHD IR camera embedded in the CNC-machined lid. The internal layout is optimized using precision CNC machining, resulting in more space, better performance, and fewer circuit board layers.

The motherboard is precision-engineered to house an additional, ultrathin fan for improved cooling. To minimize weight, a durable magnesium-aluminum alloy is used for the keyboard deck, while the touchpad is covered with ultra-thin glass, further reducing the keyboard deck’s thickness.

Although the laptop is thin, it does not miss out on I/O ports. The laptop has a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports (40Gbps) that support both display and power delivery, an HDMI 2.1 port, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack.

Asus introduces a new manufacturing process for the lid of the Zenbook 13 S OLED, utilizing a plasma ceramic aluminum material. This environmentally friendly method, using pure water and electricity, enhances wear resistance, corrosion protection, thermal management, and hardness, according to Asus. Each lid is unique, resembling natural stone, aligning with the Zenbook series’ spirit.

Asus also claims that the device is the most eco-friendly Zenbook ever made, using recycled materials in its construction, recyclable packaging, and exceeding energy efficiency standards. Its sustainability initiatives aim for carbon neutrality.
