ASUS Zenbook Laptops: The Reliable Everyday Machine That Packs Military-Grade Toughness & Quality Service

Aesthetics and portability have always been the centrepiece of ASUS’ current crop of Zenbook offerings, but as the saying goes, never judge a laptop by its cover. Despite its sleek form factor, the series is built to endure anywhere and everything, lending a rugged touch to lightweight convenience, with an edge over other similar builds. 

While every brand out there touts strict and standard testing of products before releasing them into the market, the Taiwanese tech giant has gone above and beyond, with an additional suite of military-grade tests comprising 12 methods and 26 procedures. This battery of tests includes putting the machines through simulated harsh environmental conditions, such as extreme altitudes, temperatures, and humidity, ensuring there’s no compromise on everyday reliability, as  the physical vibration and shock tests have been designed to mimic rough day-to-day handling. Whatever life on the road can throw at it, users can be certain their device will live to see another day.

Or more accurately, beyond just that one day. On top of being military-grade, the Zenbook line has been put through the wringer, withstanding up to 10 million keystrokes, 20,000 open-and-close cycles, 50,000 twisting twists, a 25kg force on the lid, and more, all done in the name of durability. This ensures prolonged use and the ability to survive through wear and tear, which is an important consideration that often goes forgotten. 

Besides, a reliable, durable laptop is likely to save owners money in the long run, as the device can operate without requiring extensive repairs or replacement of parts – not that that’ll be an issue in the first place. ASUS takes great pride in offering excellent after-sales service and product quality, so users can expect an international warranty of up to two years in more than 80 countries, including Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Australia, Philippines in Asia, in the United States and Canada, as well as across Europe and the Middle East. 

Pickup and return services are also a fuss-free, convenient affair – simply call in, and arrange a delivery from the comfort of your own home or office.

ASUS’ hospitality doesn’t stop there. The displays on each device, including the Zenbook laptops, are protected from burn-in with ASUS OLED Care, but in the event that it happens, the company will swap the panel for another at no extra cost. Considering how premium parts like the OLED display can be pricey, the 1:1 OLED Screen Swap service is a godsend, especially for a True-to-Life NanoEdge OLED display sporting great detail and vivid images. 

At S$2,098, the ASUS Zenbook 15 OLED is an example of a flagship machine that embodies all these perks – and then some. Like the rest of its family, the ultraportable is as tough as it is lightweight, weighing in at 1.4kg and measuring just 1.49cm thick. The display sports the same world-leading OLED technology, featuring a 16:9 aspect ratio, a 2,880 x 1,620 resolution, and a 120Hz refresh rate. 

Under the hood, the laptop can house up to an AMD Ryzen 7 7735U processor, alongside 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. Completing the on-the-go setup is a 67Wh battery and various ports, including USB 4.0 Type-C, USB 3.2 Type-C, USB 3.2 Type-A, HDMI 2.1, as well as an audio jack for convenient connections to other devices and peripherals.

When the going gets tough, the tough gets going, and that’s what ASUS looks to do with its Zenbook lineup. The laptops have long been known for their durability, portability, and aesthetics, with the Zenbook 15 OLED continuing the hard-earned legacy of being a reliable everyday carry for entertainment, productivity and everything in between.
