Inch display drops to 2.

ZenBook 13 features the latest 8-generation Intel Core Quad-core processor
The core processor is an optional Nvidia GeForce MX150 stand-alone graphics chip with a storage capacity of up to 1 tb, while the 50Wh battery is said to provide up to 15 hours of use (
We will verify something once we get the comment unit).

Huawei MateBook 13: best price-
The performance of Huawei MateBook 13 is less than $1,000, the best price to date --
Performance laptop 2019
The price of most of the cool notebooks released at CES this year is still to be announced.
MateBook 13 is essentially an update to the already excellent MateBook X that was launched in 2017, and it\'s still my favorite Windows laptop, lightweight, thin, with a screen of 88%to-
Despite the poor battery life, the body ratio and overall performance are good (3 to 4 hours)
For use cases that I am demanding (video, multi-
Dozens of Google Chrome tags. . . ).
This time, however, Huawei has added a $300 standalone graphics option including 25-
Watts Nvidia GeForce MX 150 chip (GPU)
The 512 GB of storage makes MateBook X one of the ultra-portable devices with the most powerful graphics, comparable to the latest Razer Blade Stealth 13 gaming laptop, at a slightly cheaper price at the same time.
Huawei has a beautifully designed laptop 13 that offers a more affordable and powerful alternative to Apple\'s latest MacBook Air, but we have to test if 41 is OK.
As the Chinese manufacturer claims, the 8Wh battery can actually play video for 10 hours.
OLED display is back again: HP Spectre x3 60 and Lenovo Yoga c730 it\'s been three years since I first saw a laptop with an OLED display, at that time, a few months after HP and Lenovo released Spectre, at CES 2016, Alienware (Dell)
It\'s a game notebook.
But since then, no new OLED laptops have been released.
Due to rising prices and limited supply of OLED panels, the announced products have quietly stopped production
Until this year, as HP and Lenovo,
History does have a way to repeat itself.
At CES, they released 2019 OLED versions of their existing laptops, 13 respectively. 3-
Inch ghost x3 60 and 15-
Supports 4k inch Yoga C730.
For the two machines that are scheduled to start shipping within the scheduled time, there is no price yet.
Razer, the game hardware maker, also showed its 15-
Inch Blade laptop with 4k OLED touch display.
But there is no news if it will ship.
Although Dell did not publicly display any OLED laptops at CES --
At a private briefing in Texas
US-based companies have confirmed that a 4k OLED display will appear on G15, XPS 15 and Alienware m15 laptops.
At the end of the day, you might want to know why OLED laptops make such a fuss.
Well, this is actually one of the most important technological leaps in the PC industry, supporting Dolby Atmos audio to a lesser extent.
The OLED display offers incredible contrast and color range, brighter, clearer, more vivid images, and unmatched response times compared to the LCD screen --
Usually more than 100 times faster.
So like TV and smartphone makers turning to OLED, it\'s time for laptop makers --
In the case of Asus, Huawei, LG and Samsung, they are already shipping other OLED products
