ASUS Continues Their Star Trek

Did you know that ASUS sent a laptop into space 25 years ago? Well, they did. And now, 25 years later, they are commemorating this event by releasing a commemorative (wait for it) laptop! It’s the ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition, and as the name indicates this is an OLED-equipped model, sporting a 2.8K (2880×1800) touch display.

Quoting ASUS here, the “ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition laptop design is inspired by the 1998 space-travel event. Space themes and motifs are embedded within the patterns, color and new technologies. It’s the era of space travel for all“.

Featuring an ultra-modern space-themed design in a special Zero-G Titanium color, the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition celebrates a key milestone in the history of ASUS laptops. The exclusive ZenVision rear display shows customizable messages and animations, allowing the user to give those around them a window into their personality.

It’s also powered up to 12th Generation Intel Core i9 H-Series processors and Intel Iris Xe graphics, 32 GB RAM, a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD, and WiFi 6E. The expansive 16:10 2.8K OLED HDR 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.

ZenVision is a 3.5-inch OLED monochrome display located on the lid of the laptop that can display static text or graphic animations. Space-Theme mode displays an animated theme, while Smart Notifications mode can show time, date or battery status. In Personal-Identity Tag mode, custom text messages can be displayed for all to see. The information displayed on ZenVision is configured via the easy-to-use MyASUS app.

Space-grade durability

Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition has been tested to space-grade standards, withstanding extreme vibration and temperature and using the US Space Systems Command Standard SMC-S-016A testing protocols3 . It is capable of withstanding extreme vibration that is 4 times more than our standard Military Grade durability as well as resisting the extreme temperatures when the laptop is operational from -24 to 61 ͦ C. Additionally, it meets the US Department of Defense’s MIL-STD 810H durability standards, including power-on drop tests and operation under extreme humidity and altitude.

    Remember them showing this off a while ago. It’s a shame there’s no dedicated GPU for doing any graphical intensive work.

      Yeah. Iris Xe is the deal-breaker for me. Looks great otherwise.
