I remember a long time ago when touchscreen was still a new technology and phones were still in numeric keypad that someday, all devices will ditch physical typing and go with touch screens and panels. This is exactly happening today with all the devices we use like mobile phones, tablets, kiosks and even televisions. It’s not surprising anymore when laptops switch or adapt to touch screens. Of course, with the help of an operating system like Windows and the drivers that run it, we now have the ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (T3300).
Your 2-in-1 Companion
The Vivobook 13 Slate OLED is the latest device from ASUS and the world’s first 13.3-inch OLED Windows detachable laptop. There are other detachable laptops like the MS Surface but this is the FIRST of its kind using OLED. If you have read my article why choose an OLED screen laptop, this is the portable version of the Vivobook series family.
Since it’s detachable and can be used as a standalone tablet which is already amazing in that way, the screen comes with Corning Gorilla Glass touchscreen. It is popular and already used in many flagship smartphones that offer extra protection from damage & drop as well as keep the screen scratch-resistant and no marks with its anti-fingerprint coating.
“The ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED features dual cameras. The 5-megapixel camera at the front is able to make clear video calls and chats for work or pleasure a cinch and capture stunning, high-resolution pictures via the rear 13-megapixel camera.”
Using it for the first time makes it more impressive than the other tablets I’ve used. Maybe because of the OLED display which makes the color more accurate, and the display is very vivid when browsing the screen. It also doesn’t strain your eyes that much even when watching videos for an extended period of time.
“The ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED features a 13.3-inch 16:9 OLED HDR display, 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 0.2 ms response time, 1.07 billion colors, up to 550 nits of peak brightness, and 0.0005 nits of deep black brightness, providing a brighter and more detailed viewing experience.”
Still, I can easily navigate the touchscreen while using tablet mode even if I am not at my working desk. I can easily operate it anywhere, like in a coffee shop, restaurant or even in the car in the middle of the traffic. It keeps you stay connected anywhere as long as you have a stable internet connection. I would love it if they added the option to add a mobile sim to it. 🙂
“It also offers an ultra-wide color gamut of 100% DCI-P3 with PANTONE® Validation, which is the standard for the motion-picture industry. To assure that HDR content will appear vivid and lifelike, with accurate color and contrast reproduction, the display is certified VESA DisplayHDR™ 500 True Black and Dolby Vision. “
If I were still a student, I would definitely use this as my companion in any school-related activities and studies. You can use it as a notebook & a book at the same time with the help of the ASUS Pen 2.0. It’s actually responsive to touch and you can actually write like a standard pen and store your notes directly in the cloud without worries.
You can definitely show this off to your friends and colleagues with its professional look where you can play and share with anyone while watching it. Aside from that, you can use the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED cameras (front and back) to take pictures instantly like a smartphone and join video calls and online conferences anytime and anywhere.
Many might have ignored this when they used their laptops or any device, but I noticed this when playing videos and movies. It rivals our home television and maybe exceeds it. The sound is very clear and doesn’t feel like I’m using a tablet or laptop. The thing is that it is more vibrant than the television since it is OLED. Unless I can find a way to play the local channels in it, maybe use a TV box, then the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED can replace my TV anytime.
“The ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED features four built-in speakers with Dolby Atoms support. Dolby Atmos provides an all-new listening experience that lets users hear music, movies, or podcasts in a detailed aural environment, with perfect clarity and lifelike spatial separation. With a plethora of equalizer settings, users can use the presets or tune them to their audio tastes.”
For digital nomads & students that are not always at home, the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED is perfect for your display and entertainment needs. You can watch your favorite shows and movies, and it is very compatible with the Netflix app which you can download directly from the Microsoft store.
“The quad speakers of the ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED are driven by a dual-channel smart amplifier that allows up to 3.5 times2 volume with clearer sound at all frequencies thanks to the dedicated high-power amplifier. It also prevents long-term damage to the sensitive voice coils of the speakers. “
Hardware and Connectivity
You can use it in laptop mode for a more productive mode of the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED. For the I/O ports, it has 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, 3.5 mm audio jack and a microSD card reader, and it also features a dual camera (front and back) for your photo capture and video conference.
“A built-in dual-band Intel WiFi 6 with Gig+ (802.11ax) wireless network module in the ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED offers speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps, and provides up to 3x higher throughput and 4x more network capacity than WiFi 5 (802.11ac). The network card incorporates Bluetooth® 5.2 for connection to Bluetooth-enabled devices. “.
The Vivobook 13 Slate OLED features a 50Whr battery to keep you going for longer, providing over 9 hours of battery life on a single charge. It also features integrated ASUS Battery Health Charging technology (charge mode setting at MyASUS software) designed to reduce battery expansion during charging to help ensure that the battery stays in good condition, increasing battery longevity. This charging technology provides safer charging and improves lifespan than regular charging. In addition, the ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED features a fast-charging function that charges the battery from 0% to 60% in less than 39 minutes.
“USB-C® Easy Charge support means that the ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED can be used with a wide range of standard USB-C chargers (5V-20V). Users can enjoy ultrafast charging with any PD (Power Delivery) certified charger, including the 65-watt fast-charge adapter supplied with the ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED, or juice up your device on the go with airline chargers or power banks! It’s incredibly convenient when no wall sockets are available, such as on flights or vehicles.”
After booting up for the first time, you immediately see the already installed software MyASUS, exclusive software for ASUS laptops. It houses all of the important ASUS apps for controlling and optimizing the system in one place. Similar to all ASUS laptops purchased, you can use this application to manage your laptop needs.
The most important feature of MyASUS for me is the restoration backup, where I can create a save point in the laptop when it gets corrupted or does not work at some point. You can restore the original settings through a USB, and you can also control the device hardware config like the screen light, fan speed, external software downloads and driver updates.
It can install and run various Microsoft applications without problems, I tried installing applications that use the Stylus ASUS Pen 2.0, and I’m very amazed at the output. Microsoft Office is already pre-installed with a lifetime license in the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED.
If you are a graphic artist or a student that studies arts, then the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED is perfect for your needs. You can create that incredible output and stand out from the rest of the crowd.

8 Reasons Why Choose the ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED as your Next Laptop
Getting a new laptop nowadays is already a challenge since many brands have similar specs and functions. So the main question is, what do you plan on using the laptop for? Different laptops are better suited to various tasks. For example, suppose you plan on using the laptop for gaming. In that case, you’ll want to look for a model with a high-performance processor and a dedicated graphics card. If you need a laptop for work, you’ll want to look for one with a fast processor and a good keyboard, like the ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED.
These are the factors to consider why you should choose the Vivobook S 14 OLED.
1. Processor: The processor is the brain of the laptop, and a more powerful processor will allow the laptop to handle demanding tasks more efficiently. The Vivobook S 14 OLED has a high-performance processor powered by 12th Generation Intel Core H-series Processors, which offers a unique combination of Performance and Efficient cores (P-core and E-core). This translates to real-world performance, intuitively scaled to match whatever you’re doing. The Performance cores are designed to maximize single-thread performance and responsiveness for compute-intensive workloads like gaming and 3D design.
2. Memory: Also known as RAM, memory determines how quickly the laptop can access and use data. A laptop with more memory will be able to multitask more efficiently and run more demanding programs.
The Vivobook S 14 OLED supports up to 16 GB 3200 MHz DDR4, which is ideal for heavy multitasking. This is essential if you are into heavy browsing, like opening multiple tabs on Chrome and Firefox while creating content using Photoshop or Canva. You need a reliable device that can perform all of these, like the Vivobook S 14 OLED
3. Storage: Laptops come with either a hard drive or a solid-state drive (SSD) for storage. An SSD is faster and more reliable but tends to be more expensive. A laptop with at least 256GB of storage should be sufficient for most users. If you have a lot of files or plan on installing many programs, you may want to look for a laptop with a larger storage capacity.
The ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED features an M.2 slot with a 512GB PCIe4.0 NVMe SSD with a copper heatsink for stabler data transfer. It helps boot the Windows 11 Operating System faster at startup without problems.
4. Display: The quality of the display is important for both work and entertainment. Look for a laptop with a high-resolution display and good color accuracy. A touchscreen can also be useful for some tasks.
ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED laptops feature a 16:10 14-inch OLED HDR panel and support up to 2880 x 1800 resolution but also can reach to 90 Hz refresh rate and are able to show great detail at lower brightness settings. This means you can see the content more clearly without turning up the brightness; therefore, your eyes are exposed to less blue light.
It also has an ultrafast 0.2 ms response time ― 50x faster than average laptop LCD displays. This ensures smoother fast-paced action scenes, low-latency gameplay, and subtle details like blur-free text scrolling.
Besides an ultrawide color gamut of 100% DCI-P3 and HDR content support, the display is certified VESA DisplayHDR™ 600 True Black. It is PANTONE® Validated, assuring accurate color and high dynamic contrast reproduction. In addition, the OLED panel emits 70% less harmful blue light than LCD panels. It is certified by TÜV Rheinland to ensure that the device adheres to high safety and quality standards.
5: Portability: If you need a laptop you can take on the go, consider its weight and size. Laptops with smaller screens and lighter weight will be more portable but may have less powerful hardware.
The Vivobook S 14 is easy to carry around. It can be used in various settings, whether at home, in the office, or on the go. It includes a slim profile, lightweight construction, and a durable design that can withstand the wear and tear of frequent travel.
The new ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED weighs only 1.5 kg. Along with a thin and lightweight design, each features a side profile of less than 19 mm, which results in a sleek form factor that’s easy to carry.
6. Battery life: A laptop with a good battery life will allow you to use it for extended periods of time without needing to be plugged in. Consider how you will use the laptop and whether long battery life is essential to you.
The Vivobook S 14 OLED has a 70Wh lithium-polymer battery and a Battery Health Charging feature that offers three modes: Full Capacity, Balanced, and Maximum Lifespan. Full Capacity mode allows the battery to charge 100%, providing a full charge for extended on-the-go performance. Balance mode allows the battery to charge to 80%, providing a balance of power while helping to preserve battery quality. Maximum Lifespan mode allows the battery to charge to only 60%, helping to maximize the life of the battery.
7. Warranty and support: Consider the warranty and support options offered by the manufacturer. A longer warranty can provide peace of mind, and good support can make it easier to get help if you have any issues with your laptop.
ASUS has a service agent available anytime, anywhere through MyASUS: One-Stop Portal for ASUS Software. It comes with any ASUS laptop you purchase. Using this feature, you can contact ASUS customer support via phone, email, or online chat. Customers can also track the repair status in real-time when the device is under repair.
You can also contact ASUS support at https://www.asus.com/ph/support/
8. Customer reviews: Reading customer reviews can be a useful way to get a sense of the pros and cons of different laptop models. Look for reviews from users with needs and usage patterns similar to yours.

If you are looking for an all-around laptop that can handle a wide range of tasks, run multiple programs at the same time without experiencing too much slowdown, a battery life that can last for several hours, a high-resolution OLED display that will provide a clear and crisp image, and will be used for tasks like content creation, photo, and video editing which is perfect for students and professionals, I recommend the ASUS Vivobook S 14 OLED (K3402).

This array of new business solutions offers the perfect companions for non-stop productivity, durability, and security.
During the show, ASUS emphasized the brand’s pioneering role in innovating for a sustainable future. “As we progress on this incredible journey towards sustainability, we continually leverage our technological leadership, data-driven rigor, and human-centered philosophy,” said ASUS Co-CEO S.Y. Hsu, “our goal is to ultimately create a net-zero enterprise that drives the shift towards a circular economy — with a responsible supply chain creating shared values for each and every one of us.”
Leveraging technology to create durable, reliable, and sustainable innovations
Over a decade ago, ASUS introduced the world’s first carbon-neutral laptop, followed closely by the revolutionary ASUS Bamboo-series laptops and, more recently, our first carbon-neutral business laptop in 2022. After these early steps toward creating a better future, ASUS continues to innovate and today showcased some of the sustainable actions being taken to bring exciting innovations that create the most ubiquitous, intelligent, heartfelt, and joyful smart life for everyone.
This year, over 90% of ASUS consumer laptops will meet EPEAT and ENERGY STAR® 8.0 standards. By focusing on product quality, functionality, durability, and upgradability, ASUS ensures longer product lifecycles by building products from the ground up with sustainability in mind. ASUS uses sustainable materials in product manufacturing and packaging — and has actively procured and employed 1,500 tons of PCR (Post-consumer recycled) plastic since 2017, along with over 20,000 tons of recycled paper in 2022. To do more, ASUS consistently pushes recyclability, resulting in over 40,000 tons of electronic waste (e-waste) being recycled in recent years.
And our sustainability efforts don’t stop there. By building more durable products, we are able to reduce waste and prolong the life of our laptops, as well as ensure users have incredible experiences, no matter where they are. That is why the all-new 2023 ASUS consumer laptop models and beyond will undergo the strictest durability testing of any product in the consumer laptop market — the extraordinarily tough MIL-STD 810H US military-grade standard, based on 12 test methods and 26 test procedures — to deliver long-lasting value, reliability, and durability.
Additionally, ASUS has partnered with Ishizuka Glass for our antimicrobial treatments, using its IONPURE antimicrobial agent on select products. ASUS was the first in the laptop industry to introduce the ASUS Antimicrobial Guard Plus[i], which can inhibit the spread of 99% of virus and bacteria ― including COVID-19 ― over a 24-hour period[ii]. This technology is specifically tested[iii] on viruses such as Influenza A (H3N2) and H1N1; it also follows ISO 21702 and ISO 22196 testing protocols to help ensure a more hygienic user experience.
Incredibly exciting software and hardware for creators
During the CES 2023 event, ASUS introduced a range of new and updated software and hardware innovations for content creators. ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 is designed to ensure creators can best utilize their powerful ASUS hardware and software to bring their best ideas to life. This new version hosts a refreshed, modern user interface and an exclusive new feature — Color Control, which combines all the color solutions specific to creators. ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 updates the ASUS Dial and ASUS Control Panel capabilities to not only allow new customizations for Adobe ® apps, but also for productivity, entertainment, and content creation apps — including Microsoft 365, Spotify, YouTube, and popular web browsers. ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 will be available for all Studiobook, Zenbook, and Vivobook models with ASUS Dial, ASUS DialPad, or ASUS ScreenPad Plus. It will also be available for the ProArt mouse range as well as all ASUS touchscreen monitors.
To push the limits of the creator experience, ASUS has joined forces with Pantone®, the world-leading authority on color, to provide an opportunity for creators to gain access to and utilize the Pantone resource database, including the Pantone Libraries, Color Space data, Color Harmonies, and much more. All these features will be available on all ASUS creator laptops via the ASUS-exclusive ProArt Creator Hub 2.0 software.
In an exciting industry-first announcement, ASUS today also introduced ASUS Spatial Vision, the world’s first glasses-free (autostereoscopic) 3D OLED technology, which allows immersive 3D experiences on a laptop — with no wearables required. This is made possible using a lenticular lens and advanced eye-tracking camera technology, enabling the display to weave distinct images for each eye, resulting in an autostereoscopic 3D image. Users can also switch effortlessly between 2D and 3D. This new technology can totally change creator workflows, they will be able to see the details of 3D objects and effects directly on the screen without needing to review physical prototypes, saving time and money while making their workflow more efficient.
These incredible OLED displays offer a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, a 0.2 ms response time, and a 120 Hz refresh rate for seamless visuals ― all while minimizing crosstalk for the smoothest viewing experience. They also offer great potential for rapidly growing metaverse applications. This glasses-free 3D OLED technology integrates with the exclusive apps in the ASUS Spatial Vision Hub, which allows users to watch 3D videos and movies, play 3D games, and enjoy 3D model visualization or content creation, while also offering unlimited potential for developers to build their own ecosystems.
