The Asus VivoBook 13 Slate is a Microsoft Surface-like hybrid laptop that costs $600

With a new 2-in-1 Windows laptop expected to come next month, Asus has designed a competitor to Microsoft’s Surface Pro.
The Asus Vivobook 13 Slate OLED runs Windows 11 and has a 13.3-inch tablet that can be converted into a laptop by attaching a keyboard and cover stand.
The 1,920-by-1,080 touch-screen OLED panel, according to Asus, could provide more brilliant colors and deeper blacks than the IPS displays seen in Microsoft’s latest Surface Pros. It can produce a brightness of up to 550 nits.

The Vivobook 13 is 1.73 pounds when used solely as a tablet. Asus, on the other hand, designed a customized cover for the device that includes a kickstand that can be folded out to 170 degrees. It also includes an attachable keyboard with full-size keys and 1.4mm key travel.

“There’s also an Asus Pen 2.0 stylus, which is neatly housed in a handy magnetic pen holder so it’s always at hand,” the company adds. “For sketching and drawing, the four interchangeable pen tips feature varied textures that imitate 2H, H, HB, and HB pencils, delivering a genuinely natural feel.”

Another advantage is the product’s beginning price of $599.99, which is quite low. The standard configuration, on the other hand, only comes with a Pentium Silver N6000 quad-core processor. Up to 256GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, Wi-Fi 6, a microSD card reader, and two USB-C ports are among the other features.

Nonetheless, the $599.99 pricing is much less than the $1,099 starting price on the Microsoft Store for the recently released Surface Pro 8, which also features a 13-inch screen. Microsoft, on the other hand, is presently providing a discount on the smaller 12-inch Surface Pro 7, which starts at $599.99 and comes with an Intel Core i3 processor.
The Vivobook 13 Slate, according to Asus, can run for up to 9 hours on a single charge. The board’s fast-charging capability can also restore battery life from 0 to 60% in 39 minutes.
You’ll also receive a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls, as well as a 13-megapixel rear camera. On the security front, the power button has a fingerprint sensor.
