The next day at CES, Asus focused on premium laptops. We have seen a new look of Zenbook and several surprises.

Zenbooks have been known for many years for their precision metal design with rings on the lid. This year, after more than ten years, a more significant change is coming. Asus was inspired by simple curves forming triangles. These can be found, for example, on the Zenbook 14 OLED UX3402.

Asus has prepared an environmentally friendly packaging for the new Zenbooks, which includes not only the box itself, but also foils that directly protect the device from unpacking or user manuals.

Across all models came the word OLED panel, enhanced audio with Dolby Atmos support tuned by harman / kardon and a modified keyboard. The keys themselves have larger spacings, a slight bend and a 1.4 mm deep press. The touchpad has a fine finish and the spaces under the keyboard shouldn’t attract as many fingerprints.

The integrated webcam, together with the software, can artificially improve the lighting of the scene, blur the background and keep you in the middle of the shot. In addition, Asus has built an infrared camera into the entire range of laptops, which is used to unlock through Windows Hello. The fingerprint reader was not forgotten either.

Zenbook 14 OLED

Of course, there were also the introduction of several specific devices. Zenbook 14 OLED notebooks marked UX3402 and UM3402 will differ mainly in the area of ​​used processors and RAM. The 12th generation Intel allows the installation of LPDDR5 memory. Otherwise, most features laptops share.

The laptops feature a 14-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2880 × 1800 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:10. The screen occupies 90% of the body. Asus had the displays validated by PANTONE and also received the DisplayHDR True Black 500 certificate. The refresh rate of 90 Hz is also interesting.

Other interesting features include a hinge capable of tilting the display in a plane, ie by 180 °. Turning on your back to tablet mode does not happen, nor do you look for a touch screen variant.

Asus has incorporated a pretty nice offer of connectors into this year’s Zenbook. There is also a pair of USB-C (you will charge one), in the case of Intel it is a Thunderbolt 4. It also reached the classic fast USB-A and HDMI.

The Intel version will be available in two colors, the AMD variant must make do with a single shade of black.

Space Zenbook

The specialty in the field of premium ultrabooks will be the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition. Asus already has experience with microgravity devices. In 1997, he sent a P6300 laptop to the then-functioning MIR station. It worked flawlessly for over 600 days.

The Zenbook 14X immediately carries a number of space elements. These are mainly orbital features depicted on the body. The packaging, which can be used as a stand, is also unique. There is also a range of stickers and a card resembling a boarding pass.

Asus has compiled this unique Zenbook with an emphasis on the inhospitable conditions of space. It has passed the certification SMC-S-016A. In other words, it was tested for strong vibrations from 20 to 2,000 Hz and operated at temperatures from -24 ° C to 61 ° C. In addition, the second MIL-STD 810H certification subjected it to high altitude loads, high humidity and a drop test.

The overall design and specifications are based on the UX3402, but there are a few differences. In particular, the laptop is powered by the Intel Core i9-12900H. This has improved cooling, which can cool up to 45W TDP. Up to 32 GB LPDRR5 RAM can be installed. On the other hand, the battery has been reduced to a capacity of 63 Wh. Maximum disc size, connectivity and display match the UX3402 version.

The last thing that sets a laptop apart is the second display. It is located on the side of the lid and has a diagonal of 3.5 inches. It is an OLED panel with a resolution of 256 × 64 pixels and a brightness of 150 nits. Using MyASUS, it can display various information, text and images.
