What you need to know

  • ASUS' wide range of creator-targeted laptops are available right now.
  • Models currently on offer include the Vivobook Pro 14 OLED, Vivobook Pro 15 OLED, Vivobook Pro 16X OLED, and Vivobook 13 Slate OLED.
  • The Vivobook 13 Slate OLED carries the distinction of being "the world's first 13.3-inch Windows detachable laptop," according to ASUS.

ASUS has a wide slate of Vivobook Pros currently available for purchase, all of which pack OLED screens for vibrant imagery, respectable CPUs and storage, and even a few of the best graphics cards.

There's the Vivobook Pro 14 OLED, which has an MSRP of $2,000, the $1100 AMD-powered Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (M3500) and its Intel-powered $900 sibling Vivobook Pro 15 OLED (K3500), the 4K-display-equipped Vivobook Pro 16X OLED that kicks off at $1,449, and lastly, the $749 ASUS Vivobook 13 Slate OLED. That last one's particularly special because, according to ASUS, it's "the world's first 13.3-inch Windows detachable laptop."

All of the machines are targeted at creators who need portable horsepower to create content wherever they go, though it's worth noting ASUS also branded the Vivobook 13 Slate as a replacement for a TV at one point.
