- Since Windows 11 is almost here, hardware manufacturers are scrambling to provide compatible devices for millions of users.
- Even though Dell and Lenovo were among the first companies to announce they're working on it, Asus seems to be gaining ground.
- Models such as ProArt Studiobook Pro 16 OLED, Vivobook Pro 14/15 OLED, and Zenbook Pro Duo 15 OLED look awesome and have great specs.
- Know that Lenovo also has a lot of new models coming this fall, among which is their first AMD Ryzen-based IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon.
Just last week we were discussing what choices we could have in the future, in terms of Windows 11 compatible hardware we can purchase this fall.
Dell and Lenovo were among the first companies to announce that they were working on such devices, to make sure customer demand is met when the new OS goes live.
However now, Asus has released a batch of Windows 11-ready laptops, that have OLED displays, for users who value the color vibrancy that these panels bring to the table.
Asus already released new OS-ready laptops
Even though most of the newer models were designed primarily with professional creatives in mind, Asus offers a wide variety of options that cater to lifestyle and business users as well.
All of the professional-grade models in this range also feature the company’s unique Dial control, which is a quick, intuitive, and precise input device that works with Adobe apps like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Photoshop Lightroom Classic, and After Effects.
However, the model that Asus prides itself with the most, out of the above-mentioned models, is clearly the ProArt Studiobook Pro 16 OLED ( W7600, W5600).
If you want to, you can spec this ISV-certified, top-of-the-line workstation up to an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series (W5600) or a 3rd Gen Intel Xeon workstation processor (W7600).
It is also paired with an NVIDIA RTX A2000 (W5600) or A5000 (W7600) GPU if you were wondering how it was going to perform gaming-wise.
All the other devices that were created by Asus with Windows 11 in mind include the ProArt Studiobook 16 OLED (H7600, H5600) and the Vivobook Pro 14X/16X OLED (M7400, M7600, N7400, N7600).
The Vivobook Pro series is the world’s first lineup of OLED laptops with VESA DisplayHDR 600 certification, as well as the Pro 14X/16X feature NanoEdge 4K displays.
These gadgets are available with AMD Ryzen 5000 H Series Mobile Processors or Intel Core i7 and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics.
Other models worth mentioning are the Vivobook Pro 14/15 OLED (M3401, M3500, K3400, K3500), Zenbook Pro Duo 15 OLED, Zenbook 14X OLED and Zenbook 14 Flip OLED, and ExpertBook B5 OLED and ExpertBook B5 Flip OLED.
Availability for these awesome laptops, as well as the pricing details, will be announced at a later date. So, if you plan on buying one, better start saving up, because the cost might be a bit on the steep side.
Lenovo’s also plans to launch Ryzen Windows 11 Laptops this fall
Lenovo has a ton of new devices coming this fall, and we are going to focus on the company’s new Windows laptops and Chromebooks.
Creators just took the wraps off its first AMD Ryzen-based IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon, along with an update to the Chromebook Duet, which was one of the more popular Chrome OS devices during the pandemic.
This particular laptop is available with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U mobile processor and up to 16GB of RAM.
Also, the IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is the other Ryzen-based Windows laptop announced alongside the Carbon.
This one will be a bit more expensive, as it’s tuned for content creators and pros, and as a result, offers a larger 16-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
Upon a closer look, we find out that it’s available with up to the same AMD Ryzen 7 5800U mobile processor as the Carbon, as well as up to 16GB of RAM.
It has a larger 75Wh battery to accommodate the higher refresh rate and will ship with Windows 11 out of the box.
This unbelievable gadget will cost you about $1,450 and will also be available in October 2021, as the Carbon version.
Other Lenovo Windows 11-ready laptop models coming this fall also include the already popular Chromebook Duet 5, and Tab P12 Pro.
The company decided to refresh the Chromebook Duet with upgraded specs and a more refined look.
It now runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 processor with up to 8GB of RAM. This Chromebook is best suited for school-from-home, or perhaps even WFH (Work From Home), depending on how much power you need.
And, of course, for those of you asking about who still makes Android tablets, the answer is still Lenovo.
Coming this fall also, is the Tab P12 Pro, a successor to the P11 Pro, though it’s not necessarily a replacement.
Spec-wise, it has a 12.6-inch display with a 120Hz refresh rate and up to 600 nits of brightness. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor and is available with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage.
