The struggle to choose a new laptop is real. On the one hand,
you'd like a device that can be easily transported in your
favorite backpack or briefcase, that wouldn't weigh a ton, and
wouldn't take up much space on your desk (or café table).
On the other hand, you'd like plenty of screen real estate,
whether it’s to view two spreadsheets at the same time, display
a PDF with a brief for your projects and work on them without
switching between windows constantly, or display movies on the
big-enough screen to make them really enjoyable rather than
having to squint your eyes to read the subtitles and see the
If that sounds familiar, it means you've probably narrowed your
choice down to either a 13" or 14" machine, or a 17" one. You
might also be considering a 15" laptop as a compromise between
Many people settle for the smaller version and get themselves
another device like a tablet or a portable screen to extend
their viewing space. But that means you’ve already got two
devices that you need to put in your backpack.
Now, with ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED, you can have the best of
both worlds in the portable vs large screen debate, and there’s
no need for both a tablet and a laptop! Let’s see why the unique
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED might just be the most versatile device
One Device, Many Faces
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED from ASUS is a 17" laptop with a foldable
When fully opened, you can use it as a large tablet (Tablet
Mode). This is perfect for watching movies on the sofa, catching
up on the morning news, reviewing artworks from your company's
creative team, presenting your creative content to your clients,
colleagues, or just asking your friends for feedback on it.
The leather kickstand at the back of the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED
lets you use this device as a desktop computer. It comes with an
ASUS ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad that makes it
easy to work at a desk on a large screen when you’re
When you’re on the go, or working in a non-office environment,
like a local café, you can use it in Laptop Mode. The Zenbook 17
Fold OLED folds into a 12.5" laptop, and you can choose whether
you want to use just half of the screen space and place the
ErgoSense Bluetooth keyboard and touchpad onto the lower half of
the display, or view both halves of the folded screen while
using the keyboard separately (that’s called Extended Mode).
You don't always need your keyboard with you, though. You can
choose to use Zenbook 17 Fold OLED in Laptop mode with an
on-screen virtual keyboard. This occupies the lower half of the
bottom screen. From here, it's your choice whether you'd like to
connect a Bluetooth mouse, or simply use the touchscreen for
Finally, perhaps the most unique way to use the device is in
Reader Mode. Folding the device just slightly and holding the
device horizontally gives you a book-reading-like experience
(considering the 17" size, we should probably say "encyclopedia
reading" or "newspaper reading" experience, though). The large
screen real estate gives you plenty of space to comfortably
catch up on the news, read an ebook you've just downloaded, or
review a multi-page PDF. With the touchscreen still enabled,
this is also a comfortable way to be productive! Email on one
side, a spreadsheet on another, with touch input — you can do it
all while on the go, holding Zenbook 17 Fold OLED with one hand
and controlling it with the other.
A Natural-Born Entertainer

A Natural-Born Entertainer
As well as being an amazing travel and work companion, Zenbook
17 Fold OLED is also a ton of fun!
If you like to watch movies, you’ll really appreciate the
stunning OLED display. The 2560 x 1920 resolution shows the most
intricate details possible on a mobile device's screen.
The color accuracy on the OLED screen is unbelievable! Most OLED
displays look great, but this one deserves a special mention for
its vivid colors. And thanks to the characteristics of OLED
screens, the blacks finally look black, not unconvincingly
black-ish or dark gray.
In OLED panels, each pixel is its own light source, unlike a
standard backlit LCD screen. That means that when certain parts
of your screen are responsible for displaying black, the pixels
will be simply turned off, showing you the true lack of light
rather than just a partial decrease of its amount.
Zenbook 17 Fold OLED has Harman Kardon-certified quad speakers
to provide you with an amazing audio experience as well.
Combined with a quiet fan operation in Whisper mode, you can
count on clear, crisp, and immersive sound, even without a
Won't It Break Easily?
If your first thought was "how can a screen be folded without
cracking?", you're not alone. Most screens in laptops and
tablets nowadays still use glass LCD screens, which are rigid.
Chances are, you probably had your phone screen replaced at some
point. You can't be blamed for being suspicious about a screen
Well, the great thing about foldable OLED screens is that the
technology used employs plastic rather than glass, meaning the
screen can be flexible. In the future, perhaps we will see this
tech being employed in innovative home devices ,wearables, or
public areas such as bus-stop signs.
ASUS torture-tested the hinge ─ the area that folds ─ by putting
the device through a 30,000-cycle open-and-close session, and
we're happy to say it rose to the task. This device is also
certified with a US Military-Grade Durability badge, so you can
be sure it's made to last.
