The ASUS Vivobook Pro 14 and the LG Ultra 13 are both similarly priced and cater to different needs. The ASUS, with its OLED display and higher resolution, is better suited for tasks requiring color accuracy and a higher screen refresh rate, making it ideal for creative work. On the other hand, the LG Ultra 13's lower weight makes it more portable and its longer battery life is practical for on-the-go use. With more RAM, the LG is better for multitasking and handling more demanding applications. Both have sufficient storage for general use, but neither are specifically tailored for intensive gaming.

NotebookCheck

Marc Herter | July 2022
"The Asus Vivobook Pro 14 OLED is a Pantone Validated laptop that packs a lot of processing power. The Asus VivoBook Pro 14 OLED's highlight is its outstanding display: Featuring a 3K resolution in the 16:10 format and nearly a 100% coverage of the Display P3 color space, the display hardly leaves anything to be desired. The Asus laptop also shows impeccable rates in terms of general system performance. Combined with long battery life, low noise emissions, and relatively good speakers, the laptop can be recommended to users who can accept compromises in terms of connectivity."

CNET

Joshua Goldman | April 2017
"The 13.3-inch LG Gram is a fine fit if you need to travel as light as possible for as long as possible without spending a fortune to do it. It might not be particularly sturdy or have an eye-catching design and its webcam is less than ideal, but with its sharp touch display, comfortable backlit keyboard, responsive touchpad and a fingerprint reader for extra security, the Gram makes a respectible everyday laptop for business or school work."
