The Asus ZenBook 13 OLED UM325UA-KG004R already has an important selling point in its name: the 13-inch laptop with an OLED screen was tested. But already upon unpacking, you can find out that this is not an ordinary notebook. The chassis is kept in dark gray and is distinguished from the usual shiny aluminum hardware. The screen cover is visually enhanced with a circular pattern, and it gives the back an elegant look. If you take the slightly angled case in your hands, you will notice the reduced weight of 1.17 kilograms and the narrow but stable case, which is 16 mm thick. Asus hasn’t been scaled down to the last millimeter, which benefits the keyboard as well as the connections. If you open the lid, you’ll be greeted with well-separated keys that make you think: Wow, the long scroll key is directly visible. And the impression is also confirmed: the travel is very good and accompanied by adequate counterpressure, not too difficult or too weak. Nothing vibrates when typing, you just hear high-quality, muffled, quiet noises. The notebook lights up its keyboard in white with three brightness levels.
Asus doesn’t stick to the simple standard with ClickPad either. If you lightly touch the upper right corner, the tappad in the form of a number pad lights up and offers the corresponding functions. This is a great add-on, because there is no space for the numeric keypad, especially in more compact laptops. However, there is no haptic feedback here, which is why you can hardly use the numeric keypad without looking. Swipe in from the top left corner of the clickpad, then open the calculator program.
