Asus has surprised with multiple interesting launches at CES 2022, and one of those that garnered attention is the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED.
As you can see in the image, it is a folding laptop that will allow you to improvise different work modes. But beyond its design appeal, it packs a powerful combination of hardware.
This is ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED
This is ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED becomes the first folding laptop with a 17-inch OLED screen:
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED leads the world with its incredible 17.3 foldable OLED (FOLED) touchscreen that instantly folds down to a compact 12.5 size, making it smaller than a sheet of copier paper for easy portability.
As you can see in the image, you can use the laptop fully unfolded reaching a diagonal of 17.3 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1920. And if you fold it, you will have a size of 12.5 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1280.
And yes, it gives you the option of working under different modes. For example, you can opt for “On screen mode”, which combines a 12.5-inch panel and virtual keyboard. Or “Portable Mode” if you prefer to use a wireless keyboard with the 12.5-inch panel.
If you want to use it for work, then you can opt for “PC Mode” which allows you to take advantage of the 17.3-inch panel by combining it with a wireless keyboard. Or if you want to share a presentation with your work team while sharing a cup of coffee, you can opt for the “Tablet mode” to have the 17.3-inch touch screen on the table.
Or you can go “Extended Mode” to have two 12.5-inch panels. And of course, you can not miss “Book Mode” for your reading sessions or to catch up on the news while you are on the transport.
If you are concerned about the weight or thickness of this laptop with this design, you will be interested to know that it weighs about 1.6 kg without keyboard with a thickness of 17.4 mm when folded, but it is reduced to about 8.7 mm when deployed.
This laptop has a 12th generation Core i7 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 16 GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. In addition, it integrates a system of four speakers, a 5 MP camera for video calls and a series of technologies that adjust the temperature and color of the screen in real time to always offer the best visualization.
