Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED review: the MacBook Air alternative - The Verge

The Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED is a thin and light OLED laptop with the power of AMD’s Ryzen 6000 chips. I tested a $1,299 configuration that includes the Ryzen 7 6800U, 16GB of RAM, 1TB of storage, and a 2800 x 1800 OLED screen.

At this point, if you’ve used one Asus Zenbook, you’ve used them all. They’re the closest thing Asus has to a MacBook Air competitor, with chassis that are slightly flimsier, touchpads with fancier features, and price tags that are a bit less intimidating. In recent years, they’ve also become one of the cheapest ways to get an OLED screen on a laptop.

But this particular Zenbook, the $1,299 Zenbook S 13 OLED, is also exciting because it’s one of the first devices I’ve gotten to test with AMD’s long-awaited Ryzen 6000 series inside. And while the Zenbook’s chassis is otherwise unremarkable, the chip inside delivers both CPU performance and integrated graphics that are, once again, some of the best you can get in an ultra-thin laptop. That power, combined with the ultra-portability that the Zenbook line is famous for, makes the Zenbook S 13 OLED a very viable MacBook Air alternative for those who are open to Windows.
