- Tram Ho
VivoBook is a very famous product line of ASUS, aimed at users who need to process large data files or data analysis professions. This machine will help complete those tasks easier and smoother than thin and light office laptops with power-saving processors.
VivoBook 14 OLED is the latest version of this laptop line that ASUS has just launched at the end of the year. It not only has a change in configuration, but also has been “retouched” in appearance to be more attractive than before.
The design is not picky, but “what is the highlight”
VivoBook laptops in recent years tend to have a monolithic design to create a stronger and more luxurious look in many usage contexts, whether it’s the office or in the cafe, whether working people or students – students. still suitable.
Inheriting the “legacy”, this year’s 14 OLED version continues to use this design language, but to avoid bringing boredom as well as creating new highlights for the product, ASUS has changed the VivoBook logo to look more novelty.
Instead of just the monotonous VivoBook words, this version is covered with embossed metal panels, feeling a bit more advanced for the product. Moreover, this approach helps the device stand out from other products in the same segment on the market. Just a glance, we can also know that this is the latest laptop in the VivoBook series instead of the former quite difficult to distinguish. It can be said that this is a bright and necessary change for identification.
This VivoBook version has 2 options: Blue Gray and Silver.
Because it is aimed at people who need to carry laptops around often, VivoBook 14 OLED is also designed in a compact direction, so its weight is only 1.4kg. Moreover, its thinness is only about 18.9mm, so it can fit in any backpack or bag.
Contributing to making the body more compact is this NanoEdge screen border, with a thickness of only 6.79m and thanks to that a laptop with a screen size of 14.6 inches “transforms” like 13 inches.
The charger instead of 65W is now 90W, but personally, its size and weight are still not much different, in general, it still ensures that the user’s luggage is as compact as possible.
OLED screen – a big plus that changes the user experience
Since the beginning of this year, ASUS promises to upgrade all of its laptop products to use OLED panels. This is a revolutionary promise and as a tribute to its loyal users for many years. It can be said that, of all the other brands on the market, perhaps ASUS is the only one currently trying to cover its product range with this quality screen.
ASUS VivoBook 14 OLED uses a 14.6-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2880 x 1800-pixels for detailed display, suitable for today’s graphics tasks. In addition, the 16:10 screen ratio is also an advantage to help users who often work with tables and data in the most optimal way.
Not only that, the screen on this machine has a 90Hz refresh rate (only on the OLED line) to help users have more perfect moments of enjoying blockbuster movies without the phenomenon of broken images or ghosts.
So what are the other advantages of OLED and why did ASUS decide to pursue this screen for their laptop products this year?
One of the big advantages is that it offers better image quality, with vivid colors, high contrast as well as showing absolute black. Next, OLED offers a wider viewing angle without sacrificing image quality and sharpness compared to traditional displays. In addition, the removal of the backlight layer and the shutter layer makes the OLED panel much lighter in weight compared to other panel versions, increasing the mobility of handheld products.
By applying OLED screens to laptops, ASUS says their products can reduce the amount of harmful blue light by 70% and are certified by the prestigious TUV Rheinland association. Office workers or young people who spend hours in front of the computer will need such an OLED screen.
ASUS says the color coverage of the OLED screen is very high, specifically 133% sRGB with Pantone Validated certification, giving photography or graphic subjects that need color accuracy more peace of mind than panels. other background in the market.
Not only that, the OLED screen also offers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and this is the core point for content creators to make videos with more accurate and quality colors.
In another aspect, after stressful working hours, the OLED screen with true colors also provides a perfect movie viewing experience, exactly as the director intended. In particular, this panel offers a very high contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, 600 nits brightness and HDR 500 True Black standard, providing a completely different cinematic experience and can see many details. the darkest of a movie. Besides, OLED screens are being evaluated as having extremely low image response quality, with only 0.2ms.
8-core processor – the puzzle piece that brings maximum performance
Beautiful design, impressive screen, those things cannot make a perfect machine. So the final piece for this VivoBook 14 OLED is the AMD Ryzen 5000 series processor with the option of up to Ryzen 7 5800H (8 cores 16 threads) for a powerful 45W TDP to help users comfortably handle the volume. large data easily and quickly, does not take as much time as other power-saving U series processors.
Equipping the Ryzen 7 5000 series promises better multi-tasking and stronger performance.
To make the machine work more smoothly, ASUS VivoBook 14 OLED is also equipped with an optimized heat dissipation system, which has 2 83-blade fans, 2 large heat-conducting copper pipes and 2 hot-air outlets.
Security is also a top concern on this laptop, with a fingerprint sensor built into the power key, as well as a physical webcam cover to protect maximum privacy for users.
All in all, VivoBook 14 OLED is an extremely reasonable combination of visual experience and performance. To achieve this result, ASUS has constantly made efforts to change, absorb users’ opinions, and even pioneer to create new trends. With these steps forward, we expect the company to make further changes next year. And now, VivoBook 14 OLED has become a good candidate in the segment of more than 20 million dong.
