ASUS has formally released the Zenbook 14X OLED space edition, and it’s available for $1,999.99 on Newegg and Amazon. The computer comes with a 12th Gen Intel i9-12900H plus integrated Intel Iris Xe photographs — but its futuristic design is what certainly makes it stand out.
The company first previewed the space version Zenbook at CES in January, and my colleague Monica Chin got to enjoy the spacey-ness firsthand. One of the maximum sizeable matters about this computer is the mini 3.5-inch show at the lid. It’s there to show notifications, animations, and customizable other text, along with the date and time.

You’ll also see diverse engravings across the computer’s complete chassis, which is meant to make the tool look like something you’d discover on a spaceship. Oh, and ASUS says it meets the US space systems Command preferred (SMC-S-016A), which means that it’s resistant “to severe vibration and high/low operational temperatures,” if you were, you already know, planning to affix a trip to the area.
The 14-inch, 16:10 OLED touchscreen display on the ZenBook 14X OLED Space Edition comes with a smooth 90Hz refresh charge and 0.2ms reaction time. Other specifications encompass 32GB of RAM out of the field, a range of pads built into the touchpad, a fingerprint sensor on the energy button, 4 USB-C ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 type-A port, an HDMI 2.0 port, and an “ergonomic” keyboard, which my colleague Monica said turn into into “genuinely, without a doubt comfortable.”
ASUS says the laptop celebrates the 25th anniversary of “the first ASUS laptop despatched into space.” Given the price tag, unique layout, and circumstances surrounding the PC’s introduction, it looks as if the distance edition is extra of a collector’s item than your ordinary workhorse.
