Specifically, the idea for upgrading Asus is Put the OLED display on your laptop, And pair with acceptable specifications. OLED panels are usually reserved exclusively for the most premium and expensive laptops, and it’s not just laptops. Even today’s smartphones have OLED screens at the top of their product line. With the Asus VivoBook 15 OLED K513, mainstream laptop buyers get a crisp display with high contrast, clean white and deep black.
Everyday laptops have made significant progress recently. Talk about build quality. That way, there’s no blunt box-shaped gimmick that weighs a ton. In terms of performance, both Intel and AMD ensure that even basic laptops don’t slow down to crawl speed within a few months. SSD has improved storage media stability and improved boot time. Overall, it’s no exaggeration to say that you can get enough dough for the money. The Asus VivoBook 15 OLED K513 is also currently upgrading its low-cost laptop display.
The Asus VivoBook 15 OLED K513 SKU reviewed here features an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor paired with 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM. Storage is handled by a combination of 1TB HDD and 256GB NVMe SSD. The show’s protagonist is a 15.6-inch full HD OLED display with a traditional 16: 9 aspect ratio and a peak rated brightness of 400 knits. The display claims to cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and is TUV Rheinland and Pantone Validated certified.
Display: OLED upgrades make a difference
Inevitably, the protagonist of this show is the OLED display. Until a few years ago, a functional laptop of about 50,000 rupees had a very basic 720p LCD display, which wasn’t good in all respects. You may have made your peace with it over time, but that’s not why you have to get stuck in forever crude colors, poor viewing angles and dark contrast.
In terms of connectivity, the VivoBook 15 OLED has two USB 3.2 Gen1 ports (one Type-A and one Type-C). At the other end are two USB-A 2.0 legacy ports. This seems to be important for those who are still working quite offline. It has a built-in 3.5mm combo port for wired audio, a full-size HDMI port (although it’s an older generation), and a microSD card reader. The wireless front supports Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6. The laptop features a 720p website, is 18mm in size at the thinnest part, and weighs about 1.8kg.
With the Asus VivoBook 15 OLED K513, you can get an OLED display for Rs 45,990. This is definitely interesting. However, it’s important to note that today’s competing mainstream laptops, with OLEDs and other means, also have displays that aren’t as slippery as they used to be. Stand-alone, the VivoBook 15’s OLED display is crisp in both color and resolution. Sufficient RAM and a new generation of processors combine with the more accurate properties of OLED panels (compared to LEDs and LCDs) to make scrolling feel organically smooth.
Asus VivoBook 15 K513 OLED Review: Display quality offers a quantifiable upgrade in the overall scheme of things, but it’s not something you can’t live without. The high contrast ratio makes night work seamless. You don’t have to constantly adjust the brightness every few minutes as your web page changes. This makes a big difference in usability than you might think. Thanks to this being an OLED panel, it can also be really dark at the level of brightness. This makes your eyes comfortable when you need to work in dark places. The viewing angle is better than the old mainstream laptops, but the difference isn’t that big when compared to the new generation non-OLED laptops for about the same price. If you upgrade after 4-5 years, you’ll notice a clear difference.
But is it a compelling jump that stands out from others in the market? We are not completely convinced. The display on the VivoBook 15 is reflective. In other words, you need to take some time to avoid the inevitable reflections. The use of OLED panels also means that the VivoBook 15 is theoretically slimmer and lighter than other laptops, but Asus is a bit too safe here.
Build quality and design: rugged enough, but should have been smarter It’s good and bad that Asus keeps things simple. On the plus side, this means that if you’re looking for a functional, straightforward, no-frills laptop, the VivoBook 15 OLED K513 is just around the corner. It’s also a perceptual game, and Asus shows that you can take advantage of premium features without experimenting or spending a lot of money. On the negative side, I think the VivoBook 15 could be slimmer and lighter if it was designed better. As we know, OLEDs are much slimmer than LCDs and LEDs, but the VivoBook 15 doesn’t seem to actually take advantage of this element. The laptop didn’t take full advantage of chassis space and might have been more compact. The side bezels are slim, but the top and bottom bands are a little too thick. The story is the same in terms of its weight, but when you put it all together, Asus was probably a bit too conservative and unimaginable.
