ASUS CES 2022 – presents the incredible

ASUS proves yet again that it is willing to push the envelope, indeed fold it too at ASUS CES 2022. The Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is genuinely incredible.

Sage marketing advice is that you need to occupy the innovation and desirability niches to get out of the red ocean (where all the brands compete). ASUS CES 2022 (like its prior CES efforts) did not disappoint, and in fact, its decision to take risks has made it a Fortune World’s Most Admired Company in 2021.

It may be no coincidence that the new ASUS Logo resembles the Star Trek logo.

ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED

It is a 17.3-inch foldable OLED (FOLED) Intel Evo class laptop. Unfolded it is 4:3 17.3-inch 2.5K, 2560×1920, 1 billion colour, 350/500 nits (typical/peak), 133% sRGB, 100% DCI-P3, DisplayHDR500, Pantone Validated, Dolby Vision/Atmos decode/downmix 60Hz touchscreen. It folds in the middle to create two seamless 3:2 12.5-inch 1920 x 1280 displays.

Combined with the full-size ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad (19mm caps, 1.4mm throw), the folding design provides the versatility of multiple modes — PC, Laptop, Tablet, On-Screen Keyboard, Book and Extend. 

It has a 12th Generation Intel Core i7-1250U, Intel Iris® Xe graphics, 16GB/1TB, two Thunderbolt 4 ports and 65W upstream charging of the 75 Wh battery. The fold has been tested to 30,000 cycles, has MIL-STD 801H and is 37.85 x 28.76 x 0.87 ~ 1.17 cm x 1.65kg
