ASUS Zenbook 14X
Recently, the ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition laptop was officially released which uses Intel’s 12th-generation Core i9-12900H processor and integrates Iris Xe graphics.
The screen uses a 16:10 14-inch OLED touch screen, 90Hz refresh rate, and 0.2ms response time. Equipped with 32GB of memory, a touchpad with a built-in numeric keyboard, power fingerprint recognition, 4 USB-C ports, 1 USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, HDMI 2.0 ports, etc.
The hardware configuration is not the highlight of this notebook. The biggest highlight is the 3.5-inch screen on the A-side, which can display notifications, animations, text, and other content.
The notebook is engraved with various space, spacecraft, and other elements, and Asus says it meets the US Space Command standard (SMC-S-016A) and can resist extreme vibration and high/low-temperature environments.
This notebook was custom-made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the first Asus laptop to be sent into space, so it’s more of a collectible product than an everyday tool.
The laptop is currently listed on Amazon and Newegg for $1,999.99, which isn’t cheap.
In China, the Pingyao X14 is a product with the same design, but the hardware configuration is a bit worse than the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition. The advantage is that the price is much lower, starting at 6499 yuan. Of course, the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition is very likely to be launched in China at a later date. If you have high-performance requirements, you can squat.
