The newly launched Asus Vivobook S series and the Zenbook 14 OLED (UM3406) are making waves with starting prices of $749.

Asus has introduced two fresh laptop models that feature OLED displays and are powered by the latest processors from AMD and Intel. Although we haven't tested these laptops yet, the upgraded processors are expected to offer significant improvements in AI performance, power efficiency, gaming, multitasking, and editing capabilities. One standout feature is the dedicated Copilot keys on the keyboard, designed for seamless interaction with Windows 11's AI tools.

The Vivobook S series includes three models varying in size from 14 to 16 inches, equipped with Intel Core Ultra 9 processors. Additionally, there's a 16-inch model that operates with an AMD Ryzen 8040 Series chip. The 14-inch variant features a 120Hz OLED panel, providing smooth scrolling, whereas the larger models boast 3.2K displays.

On the other hand, the Zenbook 14 OLED (UM3406) is powered solely by the AMD Ryzen 7 8840HS processor and is capped at a 60Hz display. Like the Vivobook, it includes USB-C ports, HDMI 2.1 (TMDS) port, and a 3.5 mm audio jack but omits a microSD card reader.

Moreover, both laptop lines support Dolby Atmos and are equipped with Asus’ ErgoSense keyboards, which surprisingly come with customizable RGB lighting, a feature more commonly found in gaming keyboards. The Vivobook S series is priced starting at $749 at Walmart, while the Zenbook 14 OLED (UM3406) has a base price of $999.99 on the Asus store.
