Your eyes deserve better, seriously. Now more than ever, whether it is because of necessity or circumstance, we spend more time in front of the screen.

But not all display technologies are created equal. Compare the screen on your smartphone to a nearby TV, monitor, or other display. We usually don’t notice the differences unless we look at them side-by-side.

Take note of the colours, they should look natural and pleasant to your eyes. See how dark the blacks are on the displays.

Notice The Difference

How contrast on OLEDs brings out more detail.

You know you are looking at an LCD when what is supposed to be black on-screen looks grey instead.

This is because LCD technology uses a single source of light. To show you the colour black, it blocks the light, but without turning it off, it can only do so much. The light will bleed through, so it will never be black. 

On an OLED display, dark rooms in horror movies will look scarier, action in a superhero TV series will look clearer, colours on your photos will look more accurate, and the graphics in the video games you play will look clearer.

It does this by using millions of pixels, each is capable of replicating lifelike colours and functions as an independent light source. 

In other words, each pixel on an OLED display can control its brightness to produce a clearer distinction between light and dark. It could also produce every intensity of light in between, and do so with colours. 

But Doesn’t Everything Have An OLED Display Now?

Although the term OLED can be found everywhere in marketing materials for TVs, smartphones, and monitors, it is not common, especially not on laptops. Most of the devices and hardware around us still use LCD.

You might think that is because the technology is expensive, but the folks at ASUS have managed to make a laptop with a Full HD OLED display for less than RM4,000.

And no, they didn’t skimp on the performance. The Zenbook 13 OLED has the latest 11th Gen Intel Processor, 8GB of RAM, and plenty of ports.

Meet The Zenbook OLED Series

If you are looking to upgrade your everyday workhorse laptop consider the Zenbook 13 OLED (UX325).

On top of the gorgeous OLED HDR display and dependable specifications, it only weighs 1.14kg and is 13.9mm thick. That’s a bit more than 1cm, so it will fit in most bags or you can carry it like a folio.

Because of the display, working on one of these laptops, or just browsing the internet, will not strain your eyes. Try it with photos too, the details that you’ll notice just because of the OLED display is amazing.

Don’t worry, it only weighs 1.3kg and it has a 67Whr battery which means you can watch more without plugging it in.
