The laptop has a unique 3.5-inch monochrome OLED display on the outer lid for displaying notifications and animations without needing to open up the lid. SKUs are currently shipping for $2000 USD on Amazon or Newegg.

Asus is no stranger to launching limited edition laptop models to commemorate certain milestones. In 2019, for example, the PC maker made available an 18-carat plated Zenbook 13 to celebrate its 30th anniversary as a company. For this year, Asus is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its first ever laptop sent into space by making available a limited edition Zenbook 14X OLED UX5401ZAS.

Based off of the existing UX540 or UX5400 chassis, the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition comes adorned in a special gray color called "Zero-G Titanium" and a 3.5-inch ZenVision OLED monochrome display on the outer lid of the chassis. The display can run simple space-themed animations, display notifications, dates, or battery status all without needing to open the lid. Of course, custom texts can be displayed as well.

Internally, the system includes a 12th gen Core i9-12900H which is one of the fastest H-series CPUs available on any laptop. The soldered RAM has also been ramped up to 32 GB compared to 16 GB or less on most other Ultrabooks. Meanwhile, the main 14-inch 2.8K OLED touchscreen is expected to be the same or very similar to the one we tested on last year's Zenbook 14X OLED.
