Black Friday discounts are here, but one of the best deals you’ll find on any laptop is only available for a few more hours.
At UK retailer Box, you’ll find the latest Asus ZenBook 13 OLED for just £499.97. That’s a hefty £400 discount on the usual price, and scarcely believable considering its specs and features. The only catch is that it’s not sticking around at this price for long – in fact, the deal is only available today (14 November).
If that wasn’t good enough, the device is also eligible for free next-day DPD delivery. If you order by 7pm, this may arrive as soon as tomorrow. Alternatively, you can click and collect for free at over 2,500 shops across the UK.
Box is also offering a bundle with a Logitech wireless mouse and laptop bag for an extra £24.98 – an extra £10 saving. Just click ‘Add both to basket’ from the box below the main images. But it’s completely optional, and not necessary to get the £400 discount.
But what actually makes this such a great deal? Essentially, it means you’re getting a premium laptop for a budget price. Barely any devices at this new low price can match the Zenbook 13 OLED’s impressive specs.
Alongside a very capable 11th-gen Intel Core i5 processor and Iris Xe graphics, there’s 8GB of RAM and a generous 512GB SSD. As the name suggests, that 13.3in, Full HD (1920×1080) display is OLED, while you also get a large 67Wh battery and 65W fast charging.
The latter can use either of the two USB-C ports (both Thunderbolt 4 for fast data transfer), plus there’s 1x USB-A, a full size HDMI port and micro SD card reader. And don’t worry, despite running Windows 10 out of the box, it’s eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 11.
If you’re considering a new everyday laptop, the Zenbook 13 OLED fits the bill for most people – especially at this price. Just make sure you take advantage before the end of the day.
In the US, the same model costs $799.99 but isn’t currently discounted.
