Have you ever wondered why people pay large sums of money for things that are perhaps outdated, not in production or, in some cases, freaking useless? Is this a show of power-play or wealth or just a weird obsession over things that are rare and unique? I am ok with the obsession or obsessing over rare and unique things.
For example, I would love the be a proud owner of the Telsa Model Roadster that Elon happily sent into space if they manage to get it back. Over the years, there have been multiple objects and pieces of tech that have been sent out to space and retrieved back. One such object was the Asus P6100 notebook two of them were sent into space over 25 years ago. These laptops survived the launch, the 600-day mission and their journey back to earth without any defects or breakdowns. It would be an expensive affair to buy these laptops as a collector now. But we could surely buy their Asus Zenbook 14X Space Edition which is based on the Zenbook 14 for sure.
Asus Zenbook 14X Space Edition Design
With the ZenBook 14X Space Edition, Asus gives an effective ultraportable laptop, constructed around the 12th gen Intel Alder Lake processors The 14X continues to be my favoured ZenBook layout so far, with the 16:10 screen, the uncompromised IO and inputs, and the up-to-date thermal layout
This ZenBook 14X Space Edition is comparable in length and ordinary traits to the same old ZenBook 14X version, with all-steel construction, a 16:10 touchscreen, sizable inputs, an Ergolift hinge, and the IO and warm-air exhausts located at the left and proper edges, and not taking pictures warm air into the display
The Space Edition version is a beautiful remodel of the same old 14Xs, supposed to commemorate 25 years from the release of the Asus P collection of laptops used at the MIR Space Station, the precursor of the ISS that`s in orbit today
As a result, Asus has gone with a titanium-grey colour scheme also known as Zero-G Titanium, and a rougher matte texture for each lid and the primary chassis It seems good, feels nice to the touch, and hides smudges and capacity scratches very well Just to be clear, the computer continues to be made from portions of aluminium, now no longer of titanium alloys, however, the aluminium is lined on this titanium
The ZenVision display on the lid is a 3
65-inch P-OLED panel with 256×64 pixels and supports 150 nits of brightness The small display has a minimum effect on the battery life
It can be customised completely with unique visuals withinside the MyAsus app and might show multiple animations, QR codes, or textual content messages Though it seems geeky, it is a conversation starter
Spec-wise, the space edition is primarily based on the 2022 Intel 12th-gen Alder Lake hardware platform Our unit houses the i9-12900H processor, the hybrid layout with 6 Performance and 8 Efficiency Cores, in addition to 20 blended threads This ultraportable implementation substance the CPU with as much as 50W of power under sustained loads
Graphics are through the incorporated Iris Xe chip, with 96 EUs and frequencies of as much as 1
45GHz The RAM is 32 GB of LPDDR5-4800 which is soldered to the motherboard
I love things that look and feel unique and I am sure most of you guys too
With the Asus Zenbook 14X Space Edition, you don’t just get something unique, you get something that has a heritage, and screams out reliability and longevity Yes it is worth 1,69,990 INR and it is not cheap But if you fantasize space, follow space explorations, know why SpaceX changed the space exploration game then you will love the Asus Zenbook 14X Space Edition
For everyone else, there is
