When there is a need for a more compact computing device, various manufacturers always see opportunities to fulfill this need. Certain manufacturers, for example, present computing via tablet devices with a mobile-based OS.
The device is actually sufficient to meet the needs. However, for computing and desktop experiences, it’s usually not as flexible as using the Windows OS. For this reason, ASUS, as a manufacturer of computers and laptops, saw this opportunity by presenting a device called the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300.
ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 is a tablet device with a Windows operating system. Not really a tablet because this device offers a laptop-like experience. Therefore, the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 can be called hybrid tablets or 2 in 1 laptops.
Whatever the name, one thing is certain, the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 presents a more enjoyable computing experience than just a tablet, which generally only enlarges the screen of the basic operating system.
ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 has officially entered Indonesia. It comes with two models. The first model is the standard model. This model is sold at IDR 8,999,000.
The second model is the creator variant or can be called the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 Steven Harrington Edition.
Steven Harrington in this case does not refer to any of the characters from well-known series on Netflix. Steven Harrington refers to a famous artist or illustrator. Information about Steven Harrington can be seen on his personal official website, stevenharrington.com.
Apart from Steven Harrington, ASUS also works with other artists, namely Philip Colbert. Therefore, apart from the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 Steven Harrington Edition, there is also the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 Philip Colbert Edition.
Actually, many have reviewed the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300. Only a few reviews for Steven Harrington’s version. Because of that, when I arrived at the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 Steven Harrington Edition laptop, of course I was happy because I could review this device and provide a new perspective through this article.
Therefore, let’s look at a review based on my personal experience using this ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 Steven Harrington Edition.
In order to be shorter in writing products, I will refer to this device as the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300.

Unboxing and Accessories
The creator version of the ASUS VivoBook Slate 13 OLED T3300 comes with an attractive design. From the packaging box, the creator’s characteristics are highlighted through his various works.
The version that I am reviewing this time, namely the Steven Harrington edition, presents illustrations of his work in various aspects, including the packaging box. The illustrations themselves are patterned in black filling the outer cardboard. The nuances of black and white illustrations fill the entire outside of the packaging box, making this laptop packaging box look different from the others.
When opened, I found a lot of accessories and printlan such as stickers, special stickers for keyboards, laptop bags, and others. Of course I found the laptop unit which was wrapped separately with the keyboard.
This confirms that part hardware embedded in the screen of this device unit.
On the side of the box, there is the ASUS Pen and stylus, which again offer their own characteristics.
Of course I also found a charger alias charger on this laptop. There are also other sections in the packing box which I will discuss all of them separately.
1. Detachable keyboard
This device comes with detachable keyboard, which means it can be removed. This keyboard uses a magnetic system on the ends so it’s easy to blend in with the screen.
ASUS calls this keyboard the ASUS ErgoSense keyboard. For specifications, this keyboard has 1.4 mm keytravel and touchpad which is claimed to be 50 percent larger.
While the size of other specifications is 19.05 mm full-size key pitch and 0.2mm key-cap dish.
I really don’t really care about specs. since my job is typing, the typing experience is certainly more useful than the specs on paper.
What actually surprised me, this keyboard provides a pleasant typing experience. The tapping of each letter and the text really gives comfort to my fingers. In fact, with this keyboard, I can write articles with a long enough number of words that don’t make my hands sore.
The thing that surprised me was the question touchpad. I am a person who rarely uses touchpad. However, I forced myself to use this laptop with touchpad. Apparently, I rarely use the touchpad, easy to adapt touchpad this.
I can navigate smoothly using touchpad on laptops. Something I rarely do because of my reliance on the mouse.
Oh really, on the keyboard, there is a sticker or attached paper that makes the keyboard look different. Of course this aims to make the identity of the creator’s edition visible.
