ASUS, a Taiwanese computer, phone hardware and electronics manufacturing company has launched a new Zenbook S 13 OLED, 13.3-inch OLED and slim profile features.
While introducing the new product during a press conference in Lagos, ASUS Country Manager for English Speaking Africa, Simplice Zaongo, said the new product had a positive environmental impact across the entire product lifecycle, from material use and manufacturing, through to assembly, use, and end of life.
Zango stated that “Stunning innovations like Zenbook S 13 OLED represent the pinnacle of the ‘incredible comes’ from within Zenbook spirit. The entire Zenbook series is designed and built for those in pursuit of the incredible, defining new industry standards for portability, performance, and battery life, with stunning ASUS Lumina OLED displays.
“It delivers the perfect blend of performance and portability, featuring up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i7 processor that can be boosted by 20 per cent to a thermal design power of up to 20 watts.”
He added that, “To achieve the incredibly slim profile, we have embedded a thinner yet fully featured FHD IR camera directly into the CNC-machined lid. We have also used a specially designed ultraslim OLED panel, resulting in a lid that’s 30 per cent slimmer.
“By using precision CNC machining, we make more space available in the interior for components.”
He said it used circuit boards with fewer layers and a higher wiring density, with many more transistors, giving a better performance with less weight in a more compact space.
The motherboard, he explained, was precision-engineered to house an additional, ultrathin fan that increased airflow for better cooling.
He said this made the lower part of the laptop about 25 per cent slimmer.
ASUS added that the product was designed with the environment and carbon neutrality, using recycled metals and plastics in its construction to make it the most eco-friendly Zenbook model it had produced.
