The screen has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, in addition to being DisplayHDR True Black 500 certified, according to Engadget. Asus added that the display has a 0.2 ms response time and blue light levels up to 70% lower than an LCD screen.

The device sports a quad-core Intel processor up to 3.3 GHz, up to 256 GB of SSD storage, and up to 8 GB of LPDDR4X RAM, per Engadget. The VivoBook 13 Slate OLED supports WiFi 6, has two USB-C ports, a 3.5 mm combo audio jack, and a microSD card reader.
