ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition remembers the space adventure of its predecessor (X)

With the model’s exterior, it celebrates the 25th anniversary of the launch of the first ASUS laptop into space, but there’s more to admire.

Special Edition laptops rarely make a lasting impression. Most add a new color scheme to an existing house or slam some promotional brand on the cover to entice fans with a popular franchise. ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition isn’t one of those solutions.

The Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition isn’t simply a jump in trend, but it celebrates an important moment in the history of ASUS notebooks. In 1997, the ASUS P6300 and P6100 served on the US-built Mir space station, the first modular space station and the first manned long-range research station in space. The laptops effortlessly completed the entire 600-day mission, and a special edition based on one of the latest pieces in the ASUS series was created to celebrate this feat.

Decorated with space signs

Both the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition cover and the back of the case have space-age-inspired embossing. The dots on the cover are Morse code for the Latin “ad astra per aspera” (meaning “bumpy road to the stars”), while the patterns represent the Mir station and the curved lines represent a space capsule. The cover also features a 3.5-inch, 256 x 64-resolution OLED panel called “Zenvision,” which can display customizable messages, status notifications, and custom GIF animations.

By default, the panel shows an astronaut hovering between three planets with stars in the background, but you can even use this section as your QR code business card. Not only does the outer appearance bond the latest Zenbook hardware to space, but also the device’s durability, as it meets the requirements of US Aerospace Systems Command Standards Test Protocols SMC-S-016A to handle extreme temperatures between -24 and 61 degrees Celsius and with vibrations ranging from 20 and 2000 Hz.

The laptop combines the best of visuals and sound to deliver an immersive experience: it features a 16:10 aspect ratio and a 2.8K 90Hz OLED display with Dolby Atmos and Harman Kardon certification. Stunning visuals are further enhanced by DisplayHDR True Black 500 certification, and after long hours in front of the laptop, TÜV Rheinland certification ensures eye health by ensuring that up to 70% harmful blue light reaches the user’s eyes compared to a regular LCD panel thanks to the OLED display.

Fantastic devices

Twenty-five years ago, the ASUS P6300 served up an Intel Pentium II processor running at 266MHz, with 64MB of memory and a 3.2GB hard drive. This was replaced by an Engineer with a 12th-generation Intel Core i9 H-series processor, 32GB of memory and a 512GB SSD that gamers can get their heads around, as that computing power is typical of the latest gaming laptops, while the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition weighs just 1.4kg and is 1.59cm thick. This ensures that in addition to the average workflow, you can handle more resource intensive computing tasks.
