This year marks the 30th anniversary of ASUS so the tech brand is celebrating with a collection of limited edition gear headed by the regal white leather ZenBook Edition 30 laptop. This bold statement piece brings a futuristic twist to a classic look and wouldn’t appear out of place resting on the desks of Captain Kirk or Picard.
Features include a luxurious hand-stitched embossed pebble Italian leather lid in a pearl white colourway with an 18-karat rose gold-plated ASUS emblem and trim detailing. ZenBook Edition 30 is also the world’s smallest 13-inch laptop with a 95% screen to body ratio. ZenBook Edition 30 will launch later this year along with a series of accessories including a Pearl White mouse, a leather-look box and mouse pad and a genuine-leather sleeve.
ZenBook Edition 30 is built with the new ScreenPad 2.0, adding a second screen to the touchpad with smartphone-like apps to enhance productivity and multitasking. Inside, optional high-performance components include up to an up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics card. They are paired with 16GB Ram, the latest and fastest 1TB data storage and gigabit-class WiFi for the makings of a powerful laptop.
The ZenBook Edition 30 laptop leads an ‘all-star’ cast that includes the ZenFone 6 Edition 30 smartphone and Prime X299 Edition 30 PC motherboard. All three designs feature the stylised “A” monogram created by ASUS Design Center to celebrate the anniversary as well as unique designs that embody the brand’s focus on refined aesthetics, outstanding performance and quest to deliver exceptional user experiences.
The ZenBook Edition 30 is limited to 3000 examples. There’s currently no word on pricing or release date although you can expect it to cost a pretty penny.
