Asus has announced an upcoming laptop with a 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen that you can detach from the keyboard. The Asus Vivobook 13 Slate OLED will join an increasing roster of OLED-equipped laptops but stands out with its form factor and price.

Asus' upcoming two-in-one has a stand you can attach to the back of the display, allowing for an angle as steep as 170 degrees. The OLED panel is equipped for horizontal or vertical orientation.
