The latest thin and light 13.3 inch notebooks from Asus are really thin and light, but they also pack a fair amount of processing power and some pretty impressive displays.

The new Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED is a 2.2 pound notebook with support for up to an AMD Ryzen 7 6800U processor, while the 2022 Asus Zenbook S 13 Flip OLED is a 2.4 pound convertible with up to an Intel Core i7-1260P chip. Both feature 2800 x 1800 pixel OLED displays.

Despite the fact that one model has a 360-degree hinge and Intel processor while the other is an AMD-powered clamshell, the specs for the two laptops are pretty similar:

Both laptops have magnesium-alloy bodies to help keep them lightweight, Harman Kardon speakers with Dolby Atmos sound, and optional support for an Asus NumberPad, which allows you to use the touchpad as a numeric keypad.

As is typical these days, the AMD model lacks one feature that comes standard with the Intel version though: Thunderbolt ports. Instead, the AMD version of the laptop has three USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C ports.

  1. Lack of AMD Ryzen 6000 option on the Flip model is an oversight. At least the Flow X13 exists but some people don’t need the extra weight and cost of a dGPU equipped convertible laptop.
