Don’t you just miss the days when you can head to the mall any time you want and watch a movie for that crisp and clear visuals on screen? Or times when you can visit the arcade to check out the latest games that they have on HD? These are just some of the many past time activities that I used to enjoy, but home devices will have to do for now. Since we have limited options, ensuring that our laptops can keep up with us when it comes to both work and play can be a quick fix. In fact, leveling up to an OLED laptop has helped make five of my usual activities more enjoyable:
1. Binge-watching series, movies, anime or vlogs
Switching to OLED (which stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode) from non-OLED laptops can provide just the right contrast, vast color range, fast refresh rates, and a fuller view of what you’re watching. These factors greatly affect the visuals of a video that you’re watching, especially if you’re a fan of those shot in 4K. OLED is also brighter than LEDs, so watching videos even under direct light or sunlight won’t affect your viewing experience that much.
2. Editing photos or videos
For content creators, editing visuals will always be one of the priorities when choosing a laptop. Going for OLED options can deliver crisp clear visuals and true-to-life colors to ensure that the output is always thumbs up-worthy.
3. Karaoke on the go
When boredom strikes, singing our hearts out to karaoke-like videos (even without the mic) can be fun when you’re hanging out with your friends physically or online. It’s still fun to watch the video behind the lyrics so I bet your display will affect the overall experience.
4. Long hours of gaming
When it comes to gaming, OLED screens also pack a punch. With clear visuals and fast refresh rates, it’s easy to follow movements of your character. When paired with a decent battery that is capable of fast charging, you can keep playing for long hours, too! Plus, OLEDs are also said to have lower power consumption compared with non-OLED options. Brands like ASUS have an OLED Care feature to prevent burn-in issues, just in case you’re worried about overusing it as well.
5. Reading mangas, comic books, or graphic novels
Lastly, for manga or comic book readers who use their laptops for long hours just to catch up on their favorite titles, I would recommend that you choose OLED laptops that are TÜV Rheinland certified for eye care so you can keep yourself entertained for long hours without damaging your eyes.
All of the above are achievable with the recently released ASUS ZenBook 13 OLED with FHD HDR OLED NanoEdge display! It has 400 nits brightness, TÜV Rheinland Certification for Eye Care, an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor with Iris Xe graphics to deliver powerful performance on top of the true-to-life visuals, and it’s very portable at only 1.14kg. Transferring files is also easy-peasy with its I/O ports – including a Thunderbolt 4, full size HDMI, and a USB-A. Price is only Php 59,995, so you’ll surely be able to get your money’s worth for both business and entertainment use.
