The high-profile 1-inch Asus Zenbook 1X OLED and Zenbook 1 Flip OLED laptops are now available for purchase in the United States. Both models are notable for carrying 16:10 2.8K (2800 x 1800) OLED touchscreens whereas most other subnotebooks are still using 16:9 IPS panels.
In our review of the Zenbook 1X OLED, we praised its vibrant OLED display, improved ScreenPad 2.0, and excellent build quality while blasting its soldered RAM, high power consumption due to the OLED ScreenPad and GeForce MX50 GPU, and strained cooling solution. In short, the system is better for productivity when compared to most other 1-inch laptops, but be prepared for louder fan noise and shorter runtimes.
Meanwhile, the ZenBook 1 Flip OLED is one of the first 1-inch convertibles to come with AMD Ryzen 7 5800H and Ryzen 9 5900HX Zen 3 CPU options. It is subsequently one of the fastest 1-inch convertibles you can find if CPU performance is priority. Keep in mind that the model lacks Thunderbolt support unlike on the Intel-powered Zenbook 1X OLED model above. We've yet to review the Zenbook 1 Flip OLED which appears to be using a completely new chassis design when compared to other Zenbook 1 models already available.
