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 details.

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 the two.

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 right now.

One Device, Many Faces

Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is a versatile 17” laptop that can be used in 6 modes: Laptop Mode (with physical or virtual, on-screen keyboard), Desktop Mode, Tablet Mode, Extended Mode, and Reader Mode, and fully folded when not used

Zenbook 17 Fold OLED from ASUS is a 17" laptop with a foldable OLED screen.

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 office-bound.

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 control.

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

So just how fast is this machine? Zenbook 17 fold OLED is equipped with some of the best components a laptop can have. If the table below doesn't tell you the full story, we can tell you this: it can handle a heavy workload!

The large 75Wh battery lets you to go a full working day on a single charge (9.5hrs in Laptop mode, 8.5hrs in Desktop mode).

You can also reap the full benefits of fast internet connections, thanks to the tri-band Intel Wi-Fi 6E Wi-Fi connection. Connecting wireless devices will also give you a smooth,uninterrupted experience (as long as your devices can keep up) thanks to Bluetooth 5.2 technology.

All in all, Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is a beautiful, versatile beast that’s the perfect new companion for any setting.

A Natural-Born Entertainer

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 headset.

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 that folds.

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.
