Out of this World! How the ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition Got Our Creativity on a Cosmic Journey - Product Launches

Houston, this laptop is a blast to work with

Everything begins with a story. Even a laptop such as the ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition has a tale to tell about its cosmic origins. When the ASUS P6300 went on a 600-day space mission in 1998, it accompanied NASA’s pioneers to explore the vast unknown. Since then, the computer and electronics company has been sending its laptop range on non-stop expeditions across the universe.

To commemorate 25 years of ASUS laptops in space and journeying beyond the limits of our planet and the universe, the leading PC innovators developed the laptop as an homage to its space-exploring progenitor. Built to unleash a creative side in you, this one-of-a-kind laptop’s cutting-edge technology and space-exclusive design aim to take you on a voyage to creative discovery.

Where futuristic meets chic

As the laptop is inspired by the 1998 space-travel event, the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition adopts space themes and motifs that may be familiar to Sci-Fi geeks out there. Different parts of its body are embedded with morse codes carefully hidden as a surprise for you.

The lid of the Zero-G titanium-finish laptop features the morse code “Ad Astra Per Aspera,” which means “Through Hardships to the Stars.” It also features a 3.5” OLED ZenVision display where you can tailor the computer to various space-related emblems such as customized texts, personal identity tags, smart notifications that show time, date, or battery status, and a looping space-themed animation.

A visual experience of cosmic proportions

The launch of my creative journey with the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition started as soon as I turned it on. It displays a brilliant 2.8K OLED HDR NanoEdge touchscreen with an expansive 16:10 aspect ratio. A display screen of this size allowed me to see more websites and documents without needing to repeatedly scroll up or down.

When it comes to its color display, it is designed with cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and PANTONE Validated color accuracy, which made my illustrations come to life in jaw-dropping vividness. While searching for photo and video inspirations on the web, I could easily tell that the graphics were clearer at any brightness level. Yes, even in low brightness!

As an added bonus, I never felt like my eyes were strained while working with the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition. The futuristic laptop is TÜV Rheinland-certified which means there are low blue-light emissions to prevent eye fatigue.

Performance at warp speed

Equipped with the latest 12th Generation Intel Core i7 processors, up to 16 GB LPDDR5 DRAM memory, and Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics, you are guaranteed a stellar performance. It also features an ultra-fast PCle 4.0 x4 SSD storage and gigabit-class Intel WiFi 6E for light-speed transfer of files and getting the strongest WiFi signal in the area.

The peripherals of the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition house two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, which also support warp speed-like charging, 4K UHD external displays, and up to 40 Gbps data transfer rates.

True to its promise of a high-velocity performance, I was amazed by how swift everything was despite the numerous apps and software I had been using. Even with multiple windows and tabs on Microsoft Edge, the Adobe Creative Cloud Express, and listening to music on Spotify or YouTube in between, delays felt like they were a thing of the past. Charging the laptop was also impressive with its 100-watt fast-charge adapter. In almost an hour, I was able to charge the Zenbook from 20% to 75%.

Built for creative pursuits with human-centric design

Speaking of Adobe Creative Cloud, the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition comes with a complimentary membership upon purchase. This allowed me to create multiple projects on the cloud-based app and unleash my artistic side with ease.

As a creative myself, I want the freedom to customize my workflow that can inspire me and boost my creativity. I can choose which programs fit my work style through MyASUS, a one-stop shop for handy ASUS apps and tools. One of the tools I used a lot was Prioritize WiFi which I used for specific tasks that needed my full attention. For video conferencing, the AI noise-canceling audio allowed my colleagues to hear me clearly despite the ambient noise in the area.

Even if the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition was made to parallel space life, human-centric design is still a priority. It includes thoughtful design features that include secure one-touch login using a fingerprint sensor on the power button, Electric Webcam Shield for instant privacy, an ASUS NumberPad built into the touchpad, and the latest ASUS ErgoSense keyboard with ErgoLift Hinge for comfortable typing.

At just 1.4kg and measuring 15.9mm, this slim and ultraportable laptop has functions and designs that can be taken on an expedition anywhere in the world or beyond the horizon.
