Special edition releases aren’t new in the electronics market. ASUS for one has had numerous collaboration releases which sees special reskins of their currently available products in the market. The ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition is a bit different. There is no other version which features the ZenVision OLED display. There is no other version that features the same style packaging and there is no other version that comes with a space suit-material styled travel pouch.
Everything about the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition has been made for it exclusively and ASUS isn’t asking an extortionate bump in price for it. The standard Zenbook 14X OLED with a Core i7 12700H CPU comes in at around Php89,995 while the Space Edition is Php10,000 more at Php99,995. That $200 price bump is minimal versus the historically large ROG tax that some of ASUS’ other releases have seen in recent time but from a practical standpoint, what does this premium get us?
Aside from the ZenVision display and exclusive colorway as well as unique extras, that’s actually as far as you can get from the price bump. This is where the lore really comes in. If you’re into all the romance of space and the history of ASUS’ reliability in the 90s at the MIR space station, then that’s what you’re paying for. Its an expensive dash of paint, one of which you really can’t put an exact price on when it comes to its value but in a world where making a statement counts, the ASUS Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition definitely makes a statement.
