What you need to know

  • ASUS has announced a new 13-inch OLED ZenBook, a more capable ZenBook 14 and ZenBook 15 Flip.
  • All three laptops come rocking 11th Gen Intel or AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs.
  • ASUS will launch the ZenBook 13 OLED and ZenBook 14 in February, though you can buy the new ZenBook Flip 15 now from $1,150 at Best Buy.

ASUS has been on a roll this year with CES 2021, but the company isn’t done quite yet. There’s a new ZenBook 13 OLED laptop with a 13.9mm-thin chassis and a rather striking 1080p display with HDR. It weighs in at just 2.5 pounds and has a battery life that should last up to 13 hours, though actual real-world usage will see that figure drop to around 10 hours.

It comes rocking the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors, ranging from the Ryzen 5 5500U all the way up to the Ryzen 7 5800U. There’s up to 16GB of DDR4 3733MHz RAM available, as well as up to a 1TB PCIe SSD and integrated Radeon graphics. Plenty of ports are at hand, including two USB-C 3.2, USB-A 3.2, HDMI, and a microSD reader.

As well as the new ZenBook 13 OLED, ASUS also has a refresh hitting the ZenBook 14 and ZenBook 15 Flip with new processors. Inside the former is either an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U, Ryzen 7 5700U, or AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, but the highlight is it is one of the world’s thinnest 14-inch laptops, coming in at just 14.3mm. There are also 16 hours’ worth of battery life and an optional NVIDIA GeForce MX450 if you don’t fancy the integrated Radeon graphics.

On the flip-side, quite literally, is the ZenBook 15 Flip with the new 11th Gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor. This is quite the portable beast of a CPU. ASUS also packed in a 1080p NanoEdge touchscreen, up to a GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q GPU, up to 16GB of DDR-3200MHz RAM, and up to 1TB of PCIe SSD storage. It’s perfectly positioned for creatives on the go.

The ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED and ZenBook 14 will arrive in the U.S. come February, though you can purchase the new ZenBook 15 Flip right now at Best Buy. Two versions are listed below, one with a 1080p display and GTX 1650 GPU and another with a 4K panel and GTX 1650 Ti GPU.



ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 (Q528EH)

The base version of the ZenBook Flip 15 is no slouch, coming with an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU, and a FHD display.
