ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate revealed with a 16:9 OLED display and an Intel Pentium Silver N6000 processor for US$599
ASUS has announced a new 2-in-1, but not the ROG Flow Z13. Instead, the company has used its 'wow the world' event to launch the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (T3300), and only the Vivobook 13 Slate OLED (T3300). While ASUS touts the Vivobook 13 Slate as the 'world's first 13.3" OLED Windows detachable laptop", most of the device's hardware is less impressive.
Specifically, ASUS equips the Vivobook 13 Slate with an Intel Pentium Silver N6000 processor and 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM. Additionally, the company offers the choice between 64 GB or 256 GB of storage. However, the former is eMMC storage, much slower than the NVMe SSD used for the 256 GB version.
For some reason, ASUS opted for a 16:9 display too, an odd aspect ratio for a 2-in-1 device running Windows 11. Nonetheless, the Vivobook 13 Slate's detachable keyboard has a large trackpad with good sized keys, while the ASUS Pen 2.0 supports 4,096 pressure levels and has a 266 Hz sampling rate.
The tablet has dual USB 3.2 Type-C ports as well, and a microSD card reader. While ASUS is yet to announce when it will start selling the Vivobook 13 Slate, it has confirmed it will start at US$599. Presumably, the device will cost a fair bit more for the 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage edition, though.
