With many businesses shifting into a work from home environment, laptops have become the device of choice for many students and employees for the daily grind. As such, ASUS has launched its newest VivoBook laptops in the Philippines, offering consumers a does of its exclusive features, good performance, and now with a beautiful OLED screen to take the viewing experience up a notch.
A Design that Fits the Scene
These days, laptops not only have to be great inside, but also look good outside. The ASUS Vivobook 15 OLED comes in Black color, and lets you express yourself while remaining minimal and fit to be in any setup, whether in your home office or a café.
The ASUS Vivobook branding is furnished on the lid, complimented by a matte finish that shines nicely in colored lighting. At 17.9mm thin and weighing in at just 1.8kg, you get all the performance and features you’ll need to breeze through the school or workday in something that you can easily move from one place to another.
When opened, you’ll be greeted with a 15.6-inch Full HD OLED NanoEdge display that’s surrounded by slim bezels, giving the device a screen-to-body ratio of 85%, as well as up to 600 nits of brightness. Since an OLED display’s pixels can be turned on and off individually, you’ll be able to see the deepest blacks while still getting extremely clear and crisp images.
Recognizing the importance of color accuracy, the Vivobook 15’s Pantone-Validated OLED display covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and 133% of the sRGB color gamut. This means you’ll be able to see your photos and videos in their best quality, while also being able to work with a good baseline before making any adjustments.
You get a backlit full layout keyboard with three levels of brightness, as well as a touchpad that also has a fingerprint scanner for added security.
Performance for the Grind
Under the hood, you can have either an 11th generation Intel Core i3 or i5 processor coupled with Intel UHD/Iris Xe graphics, or for the AMD version, a Ryzen 7 or Ryzen 5 5000 series processor paired with Radeon graphics, as well as 8GB of DDR4 RAM, allowing you to go through your daily tasks with ease. You also get a 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 SSD for storage.
ASUS Vivobook 15 OLED is also equipped with an array of ports that allow you to expand your home station with peripherals.
There’s a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port for connecting your laptop to an external display for added convenience, an audio combo jack, a microSD card reader for fast and easy file transfers from devices such as mirrorless cameras, greatly speeding up your workflow without the need to buy additional hardware such as an external card reader.
ASUS Vivobook 15 OLED can also take advantage of Wi-Fi 6 routers, allowing for fast, stable, and seamless connectivity needed for your downloads or your online conferences. It also features Bluetooth 5 for all your compatible devices such as TWS Headphones, Bluetooth Keyboards, and more.
The Latest Windows
A lot of people would probably ask if the laptop is compatible with Windows 11. The simple answer is that you will get a FREE upgrade to Windows 11 when it becomes available.
Windows 11 brings some visual changes such as the location of the Start button, as well as more rounded edges on windows. You also get integration with Teams, a new version of the Microsoft Store, as well as Snap Layout, Groups, Auto HDR, and a built-in Xbox app.
Lasts Throughout Your Grind
More than just being light, slim, and powerful, a laptop also needs to last long away from the power socket. As such, ASUS has equipped the Vivobook 15 OLED with a 42Wh Li-prismatic battery. Using ASUS Intelligent Performance Technology, which involves exclusive algorithms and the aerodynamic IceBlade fan design, it can intelligently adjust CPU performance with improved stability, allowing for improved battery life.
There are three Modes – Performance Mode for heavy workloads, Balanced Mode which intelligently optimizes parameters for everyday tasks, and Whisper Mode to save power.
With all of these, the ASUS Vivobook 15 OLED allows you to work on your tasks with ease without easily running out of juice, while also being the perfect companion for after work entertainment. Price starts at PhP34,995.
Catch these devices and more at the Color Your World Facebook Live Event on October 22, 7 PM at the ASUS Philippines Facebook page. ASUS Philippines will also be giving away PhP200,000 worth of prizes to lucky viewers.
