Regardless of the slim nature, the Zenbook S 13 OLED delivers no-compromise performance, connectivity and battery life. this makes it the epitome of ultraportable design. It is also finished in brand-new Basalt Gray or classic Ponder Blue and designed with the environment and carbon neutrality firmly in mind. The company uses

This makes it the most eco-friendly Zenbook model ASUS has ever produced.To achieve the super-slim 1 cm profile and super-light 1 kg weight of Zenbook S 13 OLED, several advanced techniques and materials are used in its design and construction. For example using circuit boards with fewer layers and a higher wiring density, with many more transistors. This gives it better performance with less weight in a more compact space. The motherboard is precision-engineered to house an additional, ultrathin fan that increases airflow for better cooling. This makes the lower part of the laptop about 25% slimmer.
