Start Your Voyage of Discovery

Twenty-five years ago, the ASUS P6300 laptop spent 600 days in orbit on the famous Mir space station, the first continuously inhabited long-term research station in space. While the ASUS laptop was on board, Mir faced power outages and fires, but the laptop lasted the entire mission without defect. The P6300 laptop set a high standard for every product designed and developed by ASUS. We have designed this very special Zenbook Space Edition to commemorate the past, and to celebrate the future.

The ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition has a unique and exclusive design featuring stunning space-themed design details on the lid and keyboard. These include a wireframe rendering of the Mir space station along with morse code messages that include the Latin phrase Ad Astra Per Aspera (‘Through Hardships to the Stars’). The all-metal laptop is finished in a specially commissioned Zero-G Titanium colour that reflects the widespread use of titanium in spacecraft construction.

 

ZenVision Display

The exclusive ZenVision display was inspired by the portholes in Mir, through which astronauts could view the cosmos. ZenVision gives users the opportunity to connect with those around them and offer a window into their personality.

ZenVision is a 3.5-inch OLED monochrome display located on the lid of the laptop that can display static text or graphic animations. Space Theme mode displays an animated theme, while Smart Notifications mode can show time, date or battery status. In Personal Identity Tag, custom text messages can be displayed for all to see. The information displayed on ZenVision is configured via the easy-to-use MyASUS2 app.

The ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition is designed to withstand the punishing demands of space travel. It is torture-tested to space-grade standards for resistance to extreme vibration and temperature, using the US Space Systems Command Standard SMC-S-016A testing protocols3. It is capable of withstanding extreme vibration that is 4 times more than our standard Military Grade durability as well as resisting the extreme temperatures when the laptop is operational from -24 to 61 ͦ C. Additionally, it meets the US Department of Defense’s MIL-STD 810H durability standards, including power-on drop tests and operation under extreme humidity and altitude. The ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition’s durability is one step beyond the ordinary standards set by the industry.
