If you are in the market for a laptop with an awesome display, this should be right up your alley. While we have previously seen some horrible screens in the ASUS VivoBook family, this should be vastly different. ASUS is offering OLED displays all the way from the wallet-friendly ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED, all the way up to the premium ASUS VivoBook Pro series.

ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED – from RM2799

Continuing the ASUS VivoBook series’ tradition of maximum bang for buck, the ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED starts from a very affordable RM2799, while ranging up to RM3499. You can choose from the 11th Gen Intel Core i3-1115G4, or the more performant AMD Ryzen 5000U options. The starting specifications of 4GB may raise some eyebrows, but you can upgrade it with normal DDR4 SO-DIMM. On that note of upgradeability, ASUS equipped the ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED with support for both M.2 PCIe SSDs and 2.5″ SATA drives, leaving you an easy upgrade path should you need more storage.

The key highlight of the ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED lies in its name though: its OLED display. The ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED packs a stunning 15″ NanoEdge FHD OLED panel that can display 100% of the DCI-P3 gamut. This is paired up with Harman Kardon-certified speakers for a great entertainment experience.

ASUS VivoBook Pro 15 OLED design

Taking the next step up in performance, there’s the ASUS VivoBook Pro 15 OLED. These laptops are equipped with the latest AMD Ryzen 5000H series processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics, promising all the performance you need to blaze through your workloads. Of course, to keep all of that running happily in the sleek sub 20mm frame, you will need some serious cooling.

The ASUS VivoBook Pro 15 OLED is also designed to be more portable, weighing just 1.65kg despite the powerful hardware under the hood. Similar to the more affordable ASUS VivoBook 15 OLED, you get a FHD OLED panel here as well, along with Harman Kardon-certified audio. Additional features include a webcam shield, enhanced security with a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button, and a full-sized backlit keyboard for when you need to work in the dark.
