Speaking at the online launch event, Nicole Dezen, Corporate Vice President, Device Partner Sales, Microsoft Corp, said “Windows 11 provides users with the best productivity, casual gaming and entertainment experiences, and the ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED delivers on all three.”

During 2022, Vivobook 13 Slate OLED will be available in several unique editions, including two Artist Editions designed in collaboration with artists Steven Harrington and Philip Colbert. These exclusive editions are themed to reflect modern pop culture, expressing the true individuality that Vivobook stands for.

Your personal OLED TV

This fantastic Vivobook 13 Slate OLED is going to be your personal OLED TV, the master of entertainment for you, thanks to its big 13.3-inch OLED Dolby Vision touchscreen – capable of displaying 1.07 billion colours – that puts ordinary tablets in the shade. This brilliant display has a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio that provides a full-screen viewing experience when watching movies and TV shows – unlike a 16:10 or 4:3 display.

It’s also PANTONE® Validated with a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 gamut for accurate, vivid colors, and it’s DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified for deep blacks and brilliant highlights. Along with its incredible 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, this means it brings out every detail, even in the darkest scenes. This OLED display has a fast 0.2-millisecond response time, and it offers much better eye protection, too, with naturally lower blue-light levels — up to 70% lower than an LCD display — that deliver TÜV Rheinland-certified eye care.

Completing the exhilarating entertainment experience is the powerful quad-speaker Dolby Atmos sound system, which uses a smart amplifier to safely drive the four wide-range speakers at their maximum possible distortion-free volume — up to 3.5 times louder than with a standard amplifier (2) — for rich and clear audio.

Of course, video streaming and cloud gaming also need fast, uninterrupted connections, so the ultrafast WiFi 6 is enhanced by ASUS WiFi Master technology for more stable, more reliable connectivity. Owners can take advantage of these benefits thanks to the free one-month Xbox® Game Pass Ultimate that’s bundled with Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (3).

Note or sketch every creative idea

For artists, designers, illustrators, you would love to note or sketch every creative idea whenever you are able to. This Vivobook 13 Slate OLED makes it easy to pursue creative hobbies and interests with its responsive touchscreen and high-precision ASUS Pen 2.0. All you need to do is to pop the Microsoft Pen Protocol 2.0 compliant stylus out of its magnetic holder and you are ready to write, draw or annotate with 4096-level pressure sensitivity, 5-350 gram pen-tip force and 266 Hz sampling rate.

The four interchangeable pen tips have different textures that mimic 2H, H, HB and HB pencils, providing a truly natural feel for sketching and drawing. Charging is easy via any USB-C charger, and when paired via Bluetooth® the shortcut button provides intuitive one-click functions, such as taking screenshots or navigating to the next page of a presentation. It’s perfect for taking advantage of the free Adobe® Creative Cloud® subscription, which includes one month’s access to all the world-renowned Adobe creative apps.

Your Versatile PC

When it comes to work, the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED excels at on-the-go productivity. All you need to do is just clip on the detachable full-size keyboard and it’s ready to blitz through the serious stuff. This magnetically-attached keyboard has keys spaced 19.05mm apart for comfortable typing – the same as a standard desktop keyboard – with a long 1.4mm key travel. The dished key caps also increase fingertip comfort. The mega-sized touchpad is engineered for maximum responsiveness and accuracy, and it has a special coating with a silky-smooth feel.

Powered by the quad-core 3.3 GHz Intel processor, with top-class components that include up to a 256 GB PCIe® Gen 3.0 x4 SSD and up to 8GB of fast LPDDR4X RAM, giving you a zippy performance. It also has Intel Bridge technology allows any Android app (4) to run on Windows 11, opening up a whole new world of productivity and entertainment. When we said Vivobook 13 Slate OLED is versatile, we meant it!

On the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED, there are two USB-C ports, an audio jack, and a microSD card reader ready and waiting for you to transfer files or connecting to a USB device or to your headphones. There’s also an optional fingerprint sensor on the power button for a fast one-touch login.

With USB-C Easy Charge, it’s simple to charge the long-lasting 50Wh battery, it can be charged from a power bank or almost any USB-C charger, and the bundled will charge it to 60% in as little as 39 minutes (5), so there’s never any hanging around.

Clearly better video calls

There’s nothing more embarrassing than noisy, fuzzy video calls. That’s why Vivobook 13 Slate OLED has two cameras — a 5 MP camera at the front for clear video calls, and a 13 MP rear camera for taking great photos or videos. AI Noise-Canceling Audio means that voices in meetings are as clear as possible, even when there are lots of people in the room.

Exclusive Artist Editions

In addition to the standard model, Vivobook 13 Slate OLED will also soon be available in two exciting and exclusive Artist Editions that reflect contemporary pop culture and celebrate individuality.

Available in early 2022, the Artist Editions are designed in collaboration with artists Steven Harrington and Philip Colbert. Steven Harrington is a Californian contemporary artist, and his Artist Edition offers a unique design inspired by his quirky art pieces. The Philip Colbert Artist Edition is a surrealist take by this London-based contemporary artist.

All special editions include a special cover stand, wallpaper, a special box, a sleeve, a keyboard, a hard cover case and keyboard stickers. The Philip Colbert Artist Edition also comes with a pair of limited-edition shoelaces. Every standard edition Vivobook 13 Slate OLED comes bundled with a keyboard, cover stand, and ASUS Pen 2.0.
