Zenbook 17 Fold OLED
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is the world's first 17.3-inch foldable OLED laptop. Its incredible display was co-developed by ASUS in close partnership with Intel and BOE Technology Group, and as well as delivering amazing visuals it creates a new era of design possibilities for laptops. When folded fully closed along the precision-engineered 180° hinge, it's an ultra-compact and portable 12.5-inch device that's smaller than a sheet of photocopier paper.
Effortless performance is ensured by 12th Generation Intel Core i7 U-Series processors, Intel Iris Xe graphics, up to 16 GB RAM and a fast 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD. For connecting to peripherals there are two convenient USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, which support fast charging of the long-lasting 75 Wh battery, and connections to external displays. The new ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad ensures comfortable, accurate typing, with a desktop-grade 19.05 mm key pitch and a long 1.4 mm travel on the dished key caps. Co-engineered with Intel, the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED design will meet the requirements of an Intel Evo™ laptop through Intel’s hardware specifications and key experience targets for responsiveness, instant wake, battery life, fast charge and intelligent collaboration.
