ASUS held an event in early November, one dubbed WOW tHE WORLD and they unveiled a new product under the Vivobook brand. It’s now a laptop, but rather a tablet with a keyboard, which feels like a Surface Pro rival: ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED T3300.
The device runs Windows 11 and comes with a bundled stylus and keyboard. There’s a 13.3 inch OLED screen with a Dolby Vision panel with PANTONE validation, that cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. It provides a Full HD resolution and provides up to 550 nits of brightness. There’s also TUV Rheinland protection, that cuts up to 70% of the blue light quantity in order to protect the eyes of the users.
Inside we find a quad core Intel Pentium Silver N6000 processor, clocked at 3.3 GHz. There are 4 or 8 GB of LPDDR4x inside, plus eMMC storage of 128 GB, but there are also SSD versions with 128 GB of storage, or even 256 GB. Camera-wise, there’s a main 13 MP shooter and a front 5 MP camera for videocalls. The tablet comes with quad speakers with Dolby Atmos technology and it’s more of a media beast.
Once you attach the magnetic keyboard, it turns into a proper laptop. The keys have a 1.4 mm travel and the touchpad is rather generous in spate. It also brings support for the ASUS Pen 2.0, a new magnetically attached pen, which has replaceable tips and charges via USB-C. We didn’t forget about connectivity: USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-C), two of them, audio jack, microSD card reader, plus dual band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.1
The 50 Wh battery has 3 cells and charges at 65W. It’s priced at $600 and comes in December.
