Taiwanese tech giant ASUS is a multinational company known for the world’s best motherboards, PCs, monitors, graphics cards, and routers. The company recently announced the launch of the Zenbook 14X OLED Space edition as they commemorate the 25th anniversary of the first ASUS laptop sent into space in India. The ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition is a special edition laptop never seen before with outstanding features. The laptop is designed for young professionals, tech-savvy trendsetters, storytellers, space and science enthusiasts.
ASUS also unveiled ZenBook 14 OLED – the flagship model for 2022, along with the new VivoBook S series – VivoBook S14/15 OLED. The product pricing for ZenBook 14X OLED Space edition starts from INR 114,990, ZenBook 14 OLED (UX 3402) – INR 89,990, and VivoBook S Series INR 74,990 will be sold online (ASUS e-shop/ Amazon/ Flipkart) and offline (ASUS Exclusive Stores/ ROG Stores/Croma/Vijay Sales/Reliance Digital). 25 years ago, the ASUS P6300 laptop spent 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 ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition is powered by the top-of-the-line 12th Generation Intel® Core™ H-series gaming-grade processors, combining performance cores and efficiency cores for the ultimate balance between power and battery life. The new platform also brings features like WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, and Thunderbolt™ 4, along with dual fans and dual heat pipes allowing sustained 45W TDP. It also comes with blazing-fast PCIe Gen 4 Performance SSDs with speeds of up to 6.5 Gbps as well as LPDDR5 RAM.
The lid of the ASUS ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition features the exclusive ZenVision display, a fully customizable 3.5″ OLED panel that is inspired by a datasheet of a spaceship. This latest laptop is very compact, coming in with a weight of just 1.4 kg and a thickness of 15.9 mm, and has a brilliant 14″ 2.8K OLED touchscreen with a smooth 90Hz refresh rate with a taller 16:10 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2880 x 1800. There are also hints of morse code around the design, reading ad Astra per Aspera (Latin), which means “Through Hardships, to the Stars”, a keyboard deck that resembles a space capsule cockpit, with multiple easter eggs.
ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition has not only been tested to meet the ultra-demanding MIL-STD-810H U.S. military standard for reliability and durability, which very few laptops pass but is also certified to pass (SMC-S-016A) standard Space-Grade tests such as extreme vibration of 2,000Hz, low-temperature test at -25°C and high temperate test at 61°C. So, even with its innovative design and petite form factor, the laptop will always be by your side.
