Aside from the stunning OLED display, the ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED UM325 has a bucket-full of features you'll definitely love.
We all fell in love with the ASUS Zenbook 13 line due to its minimalist form factor and its muscle to do the daily stuff we need to get done. Even though we are already contented with the sleek design, powerful internals, and bezel-less display, ASUS keeps on pushing the envelope with a new offering that would literally keep our yuppy eyes watering - the Zenbook 13 OLED.
5 Reasons to Love the ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED UM325
Based on its moniker, we know that we will be treated with a good-looking display. But did you know that there's more to love about this laptop than its true-to-life display? Here are the five reasons why this computing machine is best for techies and young professionals (and the whole laptop consumers in general).
1. Beautiful Design, No-nonsense construction that suits your style
When we talk about the ASUS Zenbook 13 series, we always think of slick minimalist design that you'd want to rock in the wild. This is the exact design philosophy that has been ingrained with the Zenbook sub-brand. Now with its OLED edition, the series streamlines the bold design that matches almost every look you have in your closet - may it be casual jeans and shirt, an all-rounder athleisure wear or even a pant suit - the Zenbook 13 OLED will elevate every look.
Of course, we all love a device that we could carry around in cafés, gyms, or even in public parks; the ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED will keep us company in our busy routines with its lightweight and small footprint. In fact, it only has a very slim 13.9mm profile and 1.14kg weight.
Say for example our Pine Gray colorway is a master of monochrome realness with its graying giving us a tate-olive tone. The diamond cut corners also highlights the premium aesthetics you can get in a laptop at this price. And not only that, the chassis is treated with ultralight and super tough aluminum alloy with military-grade durability. It feels like I'm holding a very sturdy and chic computer.
2. Powerful internals for work and entertainment
Given that the ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED looks fair and svelte on the outside, it also has a beefy processor on the inside. The AMD Ryzen 7 5700U keeps everything on point in terms of processing and operations. That's on top of the beefy 8GB memory which keeps everything snappy when I do my multitasking sessions.
Doing reports with this computer is such a breeze with the suite of Microsoft office apps made available on the get-go. Plus, the generous 512GB SSD storage is so roomy for my work and personal files. And since it's using SSD tech, accessing my files is quite faster than the HDD version.
Of course, playing my favorite games like Among Us, Minecraft, and Civilization 5 is quite a worthwhile experience on this laptop. And after my working hours, a few clicks will bring me to my favorite shows in Netflix and HBO Go.
3. Stunning OLED Display
It's not called Zenbook 13 OLED for nothing. You'll definitely buy this laptop for its industry-leading display. The 13.3-inch FHD NanoEdge display is such an eyewatering screen. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the nearly edge-to-edge display with bright and vibrant color tones. Colors are vivid. The pictures give you the experience of actually being in the moment of taking these snaps. Blacks are very deep and whites are heavenly.
The contrast is on point; it has one of the highest contrast ratios in the market. If you're a graphic artist who needs precise color accuracy in your job, or an enthusiast of digital art who appreciates details and vibrant pictures, this computing machine is just what you need.
4. Super Efficient Battery Capability
With the promise of empowering young professionals to do their work even while on-the-go, the ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED is packed with a juicy battery life. You can do your tasks without worrying about your next recharge session for a significant amount of time. You can squeeze as long as 13 hours or more than a full working day with this device. This gives you enough flexibility to complete your workloads anywhere you want to be.
And if in case you need to charge, a quick 50 minutes of charging time will give you about 60 percent battery life. You can be productive and get entertained continuously.
5. Nifty software and Other Essentials
Lastly, the new MyASUS app is an answered prayer. This application gives you the power to manage, customize, and share multimedia files seamlessly among your devices. I am a user of both Android and iPhone, and the fact that the Link to MyASUS feature supports both, I have no issue sending my files from my phones to my Zenbook 13 OLED. Most laptops can't do that.
The NumberPad 2.0 is also worth-mentioning; this jewel projects LED-illuminated keys on your touchpad which you can use while swiping or doing hand gestures in your touchpad at the same time. Yes you heard it right, the touchpad doubles as a numeric keypad, solving the problem of the lack of numeric keypad in most compact laptops.
And of course, the ErgoLift hinge is an ingenious implementation of passive device air-cooling and ergonomic typing. This hinge lifts the keyboard area up to a certain degree and facilitates best typing condition for the user.
I'm only limiting myself to five reasons; but I assure you, there are a bucket-full of reasons why this laptop is worth every dime. The ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED ticks all the things I want for a consumer laptop - stunning design, compact design, long battery life, and more. More than anything, its the Php 54,995 price tag for the Ryzen 7 variant that will seal the deal for the soon-to-be owners of this laptop.
So, which features of the ASUS Zenbook 13 OLED UM325 do you like the most?
