Special editions laptops are really great and for enthusiasts, they are a must-have for those who love them. So, ASUS has launched a new special-edition or say the new Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition laptop, themed especially to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the first ASUS laptop sent into space.
Twenty-five years ago, the ASUS P6300 laptop spent more than 600 days in orbit on the famous Mir space station, the first continuously inhabited long-term research station in space. While the ASUS laptop was on board, Mir faced power outages and fires, but the laptop lasted the entire mission without defect.
The P6300 laptop set a high standard for every subsequent product designed and developed by ASUS. So, ASUS has designed this very special Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition to commemorate the past and to continue exploring beyond the limits and go in search of incredible.
Featuring unique space-themed design details on the lid and palm-rest area and finished in a special Zero-G Titanium colour, Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition celebrates a key milestone in the history of ASUS laptops. The out-of-this-world design embraces the ASUS spirit of innovation, encouraging users to start their voyage of discovery and explore beyond the limits.
Exclusive to the Space Edition is its futuristic ZenVision smart display, a 3.5-inch OLED companion display mounted externally on the lid. This can show customizable messages, themes and animations, allowing the user to give those around them a window into their lifestyle.
Built to withstand the rigours of space travel, the Space Edition complies with the ultra-demanding US Space Systems Command Standard SMC-S-016A testing protocols, so it is capable of withstanding extreme vibration which is 4 times more than our standard Military Grade durability.
Furthermore, it is able to operate in extreme climates, above and beyond the Military Grade capabilities. The Space Edition can resist and function in bitterly cold conditions of – 24°C to blistering hot environments up to 61°C.
This out-of-this-world laptop is built to deliver a stellar performance, powered by up to 12th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-12900H Processor and Intel Iris Xe graphics, 32 GB LPDDR5 RAM, a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD, and WiFi 6E. The 63WHrs battery should deliver good overall battery life and ASUS’s optimizations should help this laptop give the right balance between performance/battery life.
The expansive 16:10 2.8K OLED 90Hz PANTONE® Validated touchscreen delivers ultra-realistic DisplayHDR™ True Black 500-certified visuals, with a 100% DCI-P3 gamut and TÜV Rheinland-certified eye care.
