Most of today’s best-selling laptops are sleek and stylish. Gone are the days of cumbersome, largely utilitarian-looking laptops and notebooks. Now, it’s all about lightweight, slimline construction and premium finishes. By and large, sleek and svelte ultrabooks
are the order of the day.
Dedicated gaming laptops are a minor exception. These tend to lean into a bolder, more futuristic aesthetic. However, they account for only a tiny fraction of the laptop market. The all-new ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition from Asus presents a futuristic yet sleek design that captures the eye. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Asus addition.
Meet the Asus ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition
The 14-inch Space Edition OLED ZenBook from Asus is immediately eye-catching. Thankfully, its selling points aren’t just skin deep either. Accordingly, buyers can look forward to various extra features and more impressive specs versus the standard ZenBook 14X OLED.
ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition Features
Asus’s 14-inch OLED-equipped Space Edition ZenBook is immediately identifiable by its space-themed iconography. Visible on most of the laptop’s surfaces, its lid also gets a futuristic 3.5-inch OLED. This companion display is programmable to show personalized notifications and animations, even when the laptop is closed. Other highlights include:
- Windows 11 Pro
- 2.8K OLED HDR touchscreen
- Power button fingerprint sensor
- Sound by Harman Kardon
- Dual-fan thermal cooling
- USB 3.2 Gen 2
- Standard HDMI 2.0E
- 2x Thunderbolt 4 USB-C
- MicroSD card reader
- Audio combo jack
The Space Edition Asus ZenBook 14X’s 2.8K OLED HDR touchscreen has an expansive 16:10 aspect ratio, 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut, and 550 nits of peak brightness. Weighing in at barely three pounds, the lightweight laptop itself also gets an exclusive ‘Zero-G’ titanium finish.
Presented in special packaging unique to the Space Edition model, its accessories box doubles up as a laptop stand. Elsewhere, the special edition’s space-themed iconography further promises several carefully hidden surprises depicted in Morse code for buyers to discover.
Unfortunately, the Asus ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition is let down slightly by its 720p webcam. Still, it does come with a dedicated button-activated electric shutter designed to keep prying eyes at bay. Poor-quality webcam aside, it’s hard to find fault anywhere else, which is a real testament to the Space Edition’s overall package.
ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition Specs
The latest special edition Asus ZenBook 14X continues to impress when it comes to its specs, too. Various upgrades are available. However, in its primary launch configuration, Asus ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition buyers can expect:
- Intel Core i9 H-Series CPU
- Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics
- AI noise-canceling audio technology
- PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD
- LPDDR5 DRAM
- Gigabit-class Wi-Fi 6E
ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition Price
The Asus ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition costs $1,999.99. That’s a substantial premium over the standard Asus ZenBook 14X OLED, where prices start at just $1,399.99. However, an extra $600 doesn’t just buy the cosmetic tweaks afforded to those willing to shell out on the Space Edition version.
The Space Edition ZenBook 14X also gets a 12th-generation processor versus the 11th-generation chip in the entry-level model. There’s more memory and storage as well. To demonstrate, the sub-$1,400 ZenBook 14X OLED gets just 8GB of memory and 512GB of storage in standard guise. The Space Edition, meanwhile, ships with 32GB of memory and 1TB of storage by default.
In fact, upgrading to the same spec would see an otherwise standard Asus ZenBook 14X OLED priced exactly in line with the Space Edition. So, where someone wants the added performance, the $2,000 special edition model’s cosmetic tweaks—and things like the futuristic companion display on its lid—essentially come at no extra cost.
ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition Warranty
Asus’s ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition comes with a one-year limited warranty as standard. It’s the same level of coverage afforded to buyers of all of the manufacturer’s latest laptops. While the Space Edition OLED-equipped ZenBook 14X may be a special model, its warranty provisions aren’t necessarily out of this world.
Given the high cost of the Asus ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition, it may, therefore, be advisable to upgrade this coverage with an extended warranty.
