A few years back, OLED smartphones were the exception rather than the norm. Fast forward to today, OLED smartphones are pretty much standard for every price segment from the mid-range and up. ASUS seems to want to bring that transition to the laptop industry as well, with their full ASUS OLED laptop lineup that ranges from the wallet-friendly ASUS Vivobook series to the professional ProArt Studiobook lineup.

Why ASUS OLED?

Why ASUS OLED laptop

Due to the fact that the pixels on an OLED panel can light up and turn off individually, they are also capable of displaying true blacks for deeper immersion, especially in darker scenes. Most OLED panels also boast wide color gamut support, with all ASUS OLED laptops capable of 100% DCI-P3 color gamut for vivid colors which is great to improve your experience when working with wide color gamut content. On top of that, OLED technology delivers much better color accuracy across the display’s brightness range.

Why ASUS OLED color

Selected ASUS OLED laptops also tout displays which are PANTONE Validated and Calman Certified, promising calibrated color accuracy so you can work on color-sensitive content right out of the box. Fast motion will also be depicted more accurately on ASUS OLED displays with less ghosting, thanks to response times as low as 0.2ms. They also inherently emit less blue light, which is better for your eyes. In short, you should get an OLED display if you want the best colors, desire deeper blacks and love your eyes. ‘Nuff said.
