Asus has been leading the charge toward putting OLED displays in all the things over the past few years, and the new Asus Zenbook 14 OLED (UX3405) carries on that trend by packing a 14 inch, 2880 x 1800 pixel, 120 Hz touchscreen OLED display into a thin and light notebook with an Intel Meteor Lake processor.

Of course, that combination’s not as rare as it used to be: companies like Lenovo and Samsung have also announced new Meteor Lake laptops with similar displays. But the Asus model is one of the first to hit the streets. It’s now available for purchase from Asus or Best Buy.

The only configuration available at launch is a $1300 model with an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor, 32GB of LPDDR5x-7467 RAM, and a 1TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD. But according to the spec sheet, this laptop should be available in cheaper (and pricier) configurations in the future.

Processor options range from the Intel Core Ultra 5 125H at the low end to a Core Ultra 9 185 chip at the high end. All models are expected to ship with at least 16GB of RAM, which is nice to have as a floor because the memory is soldered to the mainboard and therefore not user upgradeable.

Ports include two Thunderbolt 3 ports, an HDMI 2.1 port, a single USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack. The laptop also features a FHD webcam with a privacy shutter and IR support for Windows Hello face recognition, Harman Kardon-certified stereo speakers, a backlit keyboard, 75 Wh battery, and support for WiFi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.

The laptop measures less than 0.6 inches thick and weighs about 2.8 pounds.

  1. Asus isn’t bad, and they’ve been around a long time. While I hate soldered memory, the fact that I could get a 32GB version makes it more appealing to me.

    Now I just have to find $1,300. 😛

    By the way, since when did Intel switch to “3-way” processors? (performance, low-power and efficient cores). Strange.

  2. It’s not badly priced, however I’d rather put the money towards a Linux first device. Why waste money for the included Windows subscription which is only determined to serve me poo ads direct from the Os when I’m going to be wiping that pos OS from the machine.

    1. I’ve never had a single ad since installing Tinywall. I don’t know if an internet connection is required for windows ads, but I did uninstall a bunch of crapware thanks to winget. So I don’t know which did it. But I don’t get ads, at all, and I just use Windows 11 Home…

      1. It is just too tiresome to bother. If I have to install garbage to get rid of garbage due to the OS itself, it just isn’t worth it. Windows is almost as bad as debloating a new Android phone.
