Forget the MacBook Air: The ASUS ZenBook S 13 OLED is the Ultrabook You Need

ASUS finally brings its 2023 line of ZenBooks to the Philippines, all powered by the latest 13th-gen Intel processors. The main headliner has to be the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304), as ASUS pushed the boundaries of ultrabooks by making it one of the slimmest notebooks one can buy today.

If you’re looking for reasons why the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) is an incredible ultrabook for 2023, we sum it up all for you with these five reasons:


It’s INSANELY thin. Aside from being a higher-end ZenBook, what makes the S 13 OLED (UX5304) really stand out is the fact that it’s only 1cm thin and 1kg light. Those are serious feats for any ultrabook–especially considering that ASUS did not make any major compromises with it.

The secret to its insanely thin profile? ASUS made use of CNC machining to make the most efficient use of the available space inside–so that the ZenBook S 13 OLED is a capable ultrabook beyond being very slender. It’s also a durable ultrabook too, thanks to ASUS’ use of magnesium-aluminum alloy.


No Compromises. Despite being thin, the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) means serious business with its port selection. Beating other ultrabooks that are slightly thicker, ASUS managed to squeeze in a healthy port selection on the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304). These include 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, a full-sized HDMI 2.1 port, a headphone jack, and a USB-A 3.2 Gen 2 port.

That’s not enough: ASUS even packed a Full HD webcam with an array of IR sensors inside the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304)’s chassis! This is made possible with ASUS’ display layer infusion, which utilizes both a CNC-machined lid and a special OLED panel that’s 30% thinner than the panels ASUS uses on its other laptops.


Class-leading OLED display. Aside from being thinner than previous-generation panels, you are getting a top-notch display with the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304). Surrounded by razor-thin bezels, you are getting a 13.3-inch OLED display with a 2.8K resolution, a productivity-focused 16:10 aspect ratio, 550nits peak brightness, and 100% DCI-P3 coverage.

Making the display of the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) special is that it uses ASUS’ Lumina OLED tech, which is a notch above your usual OLED panel as it is more accurate, more adaptive, and more reliable. This display boasts Pantone Validated color rendering, VESA DisplayHDR True Black, and a Delta-E < 1 color accuracy, making the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) vibrant and accurate. It’s also more reliable with its reduced blue light emissions and burn-in prevention.


It’s a powerful ultrabook! Aside from being slim, the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) is a powerful ultrabook too. ASUS equipped it with up to a 13th-gen Core i7 processor, Iris Xe integrated graphics, 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, and 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSD. Yes, the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) is equipped with the latest components, making it suitable enough as a lightweight workhorse for content creation.

You also get WiFi 6e so that you can take advantage of fast wireless internet speeds, and you even get a large 63wHr battery inside the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304)–which is larger than what you’d find in most 13-inch ultrabooks. The battery is rated for up to 14 hours of battery life, which means that the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) can last you a whole workday before you need to charge it–where a 49-minute charge can top up the battery from zero to 70%.


It’s environmentally friendly. With all the amazing things the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) has to offer, ASUS also made sure that its latest ultrabook is a sustainable one. A main highlight of this is ASUS’ plasma ceramic aluminum process, which uses pure water and no organic compounds, strong acids, or heavy metals. With this process, you get a physical and chemical transformation of the aluminum, improving its wear resistance, corrosion protection, thermal management, and hardness.

Aside from the unique aluminum process, the chassis cover and bottom case of the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) are made from Post-industrial recycled aluminum, while the keyboard cover is made from Post-industrial recycled magnesium-aluminum alloy. Post-consumer recycled plastics are used for the keycaps and speakers, while the packaging can be upcycled into a laptop stand.


The ZenBook S 13 OLED (UX5304) is priced at Php 79,995 for the Core i5-1335U model and Php 87,995 for the Core i7-1355U model.
