60% Asus ZenBook Fold 17 OLED review: A fantastic flexible Frankenstein’s laptop but you'll need folding money
Source: Expert Reviews English
It’s tempting to write off the Asus ZenBook 17 Fold OLED as a proof-of-concept that’s accidentally wandered onto the shelves but, judged on its performance alone, it’s a respectable – if expensive – laptop. The biggest drawback is the price. You can get a powerful gaming laptop for the same money or, if you need a machine for work, you can get something just as powerful for far less. What you are really paying for is the design. There is an undeniable wow factor here and showing this off in a meeting with colleagues and clients will undoubtedly turn heads and earn you some cool points. If you’re tempted by this curious flexible offering from Asus, however, I’d encourage you to hold fire for the time being. The 2nd gen Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is on the horizon and it could be even more impressive.

70% ASUS ZenBook 17 Fold OLED review: a promising Windows hybrid foldable
Source: 91mobiles English
In terms of concept, the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED gets all my praise. One can enjoy content on its large 17.3-inch OLED display and when you don’t have the space, simply slap on the keyboard to convert it into a portable laptop. You can even use it as a tiny desktop or utilise the entire length of the display in extended mode. The OLED screen is gorgeous (if not class-leading), it has enough horsepower for everyday tasks, and it even looks and feels premium to some extent. However, it is only when you use the device for a few days that you realise some of the inconsistencies. The glossy finish on the display feels like a sore thumb, the Bluetooth keyboard needs a complete rework and switching between modes doesn’t feel very fluid. Then there’s the price. At Rs 3,30,000, this first-generation hybrid Windows machine can only do so much when it comes to core performance. In my opinion, it might not be worth spending so much. There is no doubt that ASUS has put in an honest effort, but at the end of the day, the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED remains a proof of concept that can potentially become a mass-market product in the coming years.

80% Asus ZenBook 17 Fold OLED review: A new dawn for foldable laptops
Source: The Indian Express English
I vividly remember an off-the-record discussion I had with a senior executive of a major PC brand in Las Vegas about the prospects of foldable PCs six years ago. Back then, no company had discussed foldable PCs publicly, let alone had plans to launch them commercially. But the way the executive previewed what you could do with a foldable laptop piqued my curiosity about the form factor. Years after seeing them as concepts, I have used a foldable laptop for only the second time. Made by Asus, the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED is a foldable laptop that lets users switch between a traditional clamshell notebook and a 17-inch all-in-one PC. I set aside my MacBook Air M1 and put faith in the ZenBook 17 Fold for a few days. Here’s how my perception changed about foldable laptops after using the ZenBook Fold as my daily computing driver.

80% Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED (UX9702) Review: Flexing Hard
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Having a large display on any computing device, especially when travelling, is immensely beneficial and something that no one would turn down. It improves the content consumption experience, productivity is better, and battery life is generally longer. However, every device category has its limits, and you can only make a display so large before it starts becoming an inconvenience. 17-inch displays on laptops are nothing new, but most of these devices aren't exactly portable. The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is a bold new way of looking at large-screen laptops and even 2-in-1s in general. Rs. 3,29,990 is a lot of money but that's the price you pay for staying ahead of the curve. The two things that I hope Asus improves on with the next iteration, apart from price, are the keyboard and overall thickness. The Zenbook 17 Fold OLED offers an excellent display, superb-sounding speakers, good battery life, decent performance, and a very unique design. If you think your workflow could benefit from such a form factor or if you simply want to show off, this laptop could very well be worth the investment.

Source: Tech Advisor English
The Zenbook 17 Fold is a fascinating vision of what laptops of the future might look like, but we’re not quite there yet. Having a 17.3in tablet that can seamlessly become a desktop replacement or 12.5in laptop is genuinely impressive, especially as they’re just three of six distinct modes available. Each posture has its own benefits and drawbacks, but the device’s versatility is unmatched. The excellent OLED screen is a real highlight despite the sometimes awkward aspect ratios, especially when combined with great battery life and solid audio. Performance is decent, albeit limited without a discrete GPU. Ports are also limited, while the heavy, bulky design certainly isn’t for everyone. A high price tag means only enthusiasts will consider buying one, but that’s to be expected for a first-gen foldable. It’s a leap of faith for Asus that will hopefully pay off in the long run.

Asus ZenBook 17 Fold OLED (UX9702) First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
There's plenty more to talk about, including Asus' software tweaks. The most important thing, though, is how it will feel to actually use the ZenBook 17 Fold long-term as a laptop for everyday work and entertainment. Handling it will take some getting used to, but I do see the appeal. When out and about with my 13.3-inch laptop, I've often wished I could see more spreadsheet columns or work across two programs side by side. Then there's also its potential for entertainment – catching up on shows while on long flight, for example. Will all laptops eventually go the way of smartphones and ditch physical keyboards? Is the ZenBook 17 Fold the best of both worlds, or is it just another niche toy? If you do choose to be an early adopter just because it's cool, will you be able to get all your work done? We're going to explore all of this in our full review, plus of course we'll put the ZenBook 17 Fold through all our usual tests. Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for a full examination, coming up very soon.

Why foldable laptops are the future – ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED UX9702
Source: NLT English
Despite all of that, we can already look at Samsung to see how foldables have evolved over the years. They are getting more mature as years go by, and even the company’s warranty policy (particularly for Malaysia) has become more inclusive, thus instilling more confidence to the customers to purchase such a device. With that said, I am sure ASUS is going through the same uphill battle as Samsung went through a few years ago. Being one of the first to create foldable laptops is not going to be easy. Perhaps ASUS, Microsoft, and many more apps will be made to work seamlessly with these sort of devices that has an adaptive UI.

Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED Malaysia review: Is the future foldable? Maybe, but not now
Source: Soycincau English
Even if you’re able to put all of that aside—maybe you just love the idea of a folding laptop, or perhaps you’re a huge tech enthusiast who loves owning these weird devices—the biggest issue here is its price tag. The Zenbook 17 Fold OLED, like the first generation Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, isn’t cheap, not at all. If you plan to get one of these bad boys for yourself, you’re going to have to set aside a whopping RM14,999! That is a lot of money, and it’s especially a lot of money to pay just to be a beta tester for a glorified prototype. Personally, for RM14,999 I’d rather get the ROG Flow Z13 gaming tablet. It’s also a fairly eccentric device, sure, but it works well. The idea is great, and the execution was great too. But it wasn’t always like that. The ROG Flow Z13 is actually Asus’ second attempt at making a gaming tablet. The first was this gargantuan 17.3-inch tablet packing an Intel Core i9 processor with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 called the Asus ROG Mothership. Needless to say, it wasn’t very well received because even though it was a tablet, it was heavy, cumbersome and not that great to use.

80% Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED Review: In This Economy?
Source: Htxt Africa English
The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is an impressive piece of kit and certainly makes a solid case for itself when it comes to highlighting the multi-functionality of foldables in the notebook space. The big issue right now, which is the same one for all foldables at the moment, is price. At R64 999 (RRP), we cannot in good conscious recommend buying such a device over more affordable options that do not boast the foldable capabilities. They say the first one through the wall gets the most damage. That may be true of the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED, and only once this technology becomes easier on wallets, can we start making them viable recommendations. For now this device, while cool, is simply not cool enough to part with R70k. If you can afford to make such purchases, however, good on you. The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED turns head, warrants inquiry and boasts multi-functionality that other non-folding notebooks simply cannot much. Like foldable phones, however, its experimental nature and massive price tag make it difficult to recommend, even to those with deep pockets.

Asus Zenbook Fold 17 OLED Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
Despite having more good things to say about the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED, we still recommend you stay away from this laptop. Look, it’s a fun laptop. It’s one of the first laptops with a foldable display on the market, and what a gorgeous display it has! However, its novelty quickly wears off once you glance at its $3,500 price tag. For the price, the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED isn’t especially fast or powerful, and it lacks stylus support despite being such a display-centric product. The laptop feels more like a proof-of-concept than some product destined for commercial success. Currently, the Zenbook 17 Fold’s only true competitor is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, which is cheaper but not nearly as aesthetically pleasing. More traditional premium laptops, like the MSI Summit E16 Flip, are more powerful and versatile than a foldable display laptop, but you lose out on the Zenbook 17 Fold’s 3:2 aspect ratio and massive screen real estate. This is a tantalizing product that makes the most of its technology, but it’s just too early for folding displays in laptops to make a splash.

71% ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review: Great screen, now do the keyboard
Source: Engadget English
However, where the Zenbook falters is in its software, wonky Bluetooth keyboard, and of course, that $3,500 price tag. But what's really stopping me from loving it is the short time I've spent with Lenovo's 2022 ThinkPad X1 Fold. That's because for Lenovo's second-gen flexible laptop, the company came up with a brand new chassis featuring a more compact hinge, a revamped keyboard and a redesigned stand. Lenovo also retained its mil-spec durability and stylus support, neither of which you get on the Zenbook. So while the Zenbook 17 Fold is an admirable first attempt and improves on the category as a whole, it still has a few regressions that leave it feeling more like a polished take on a slightly dated design than a true rival to Lenovo's next-gen foldable.

ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review: Two steps forward, one step back
Source: Engadget English
While Asus’ Zenbook 17 Fold OLED sports a very similar design to Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Fold from 2020, the inclusion of a larger 17.3-inch flexible display makes a huge impact. Not only do you get more room for productivity in desktop mode, but when used as a laptop it’s about the same size as a 12.5-inch clamshell. That makes it way easier to use in tight spaces like on an airplane without feeling overly cramped. And with upwards of 12 hours of battery life in either mode, the Zenbook 17 Fold lasts longer than a lot of more traditional notebooks. Unfortunately, its included Bluetooth keyboard often feels sluggish or erratic. And with an eye-watering price of $3,500 for just medicare performance, the Zenbook 17 Fold is hard to justify for anyone but the most bleeding-edge enthusiasts.

80% Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review: the future of laptops?
Source: T3 English
The big question I wanted to answer in this Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review is will foldable laptops be the future of computing? For some people, maybe, but it will depend on who you are and what you plan to use your laptop for. Those who spend a lot of time on creative work or who need as much screen real estate as possible day-to-day will benefit a lot from this but those who spend a lot of time typing or commuting might not. A few things will also need to change before these really take off. As things stand the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is a little too heavy and not quite powerful enough to really succeed up against the best 2-in-1 laptops, I’d also like to see slimmer bezels and more connectivity around the frame. On the flip side, I do really like the big screen and it's very cool that you can use it as a laptop, a tablet and a desktop computer. The battery doesn’t take long to charge either, and the speakers are loud and clear enough to not need a separate audio device hooked up.

80% ASUS ZenBook 17 Fold OLED review: Folding computers are finally here
Source: Hardware Zone English
The final note to this review is of course price. The ZenBook 17 Fold OLED has only just officially launched with a US$3,499.99 price tag. That’s close to S$5,000. Local price and availability in Singapore has not been announced, and as such removed from my consideration of scoring this review, but you can be sure that it will not be an affordable device. You’re paying for the latest in foldable display innovation and design, which I feel ASUS deserves for the engineering that went into making the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED possible. ASUS has been experimenting with many non-traditional mobile formats of late, from dual-display notebooks to gaming tablet hybrids, and they can now add another notch to that belt. Foldable notebooks are a reality, and we can only get better from here. However, with retail availability still a few months away, and Lenovo having just announced their 2nd generation ThinkPad X1 Fold with a cheaper price, the ZenBook 17 Fold OLED might have greater competition right out of the gate than ASUS expects it to have.

Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED initial review: A tale of two halves
Source: Pocket Lint English
There's no denying that the idea behind the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is a compelling one, and one that does appear to at least try and solve the issue of making bigger screened machines more portable. As with any first generation product though, there are some issues that need ironing out and refining. The power and pure hardware capabilities are top notch, and the display seems superb, but the design doesn't make this device quite as portable and convenient as we'd like to see. Its wedge design forced by the gap in the hinge means it's quite a bulky machine, even when it's shut. With that, and the cost involved in owning one, we suspect buyers of this latest futuristic computer will be few. As technology fans though - even though it's a bit impractical and expensive - it's still very exciting to see this new category of PC develop.

Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED hands-on review: not the future (yet)
Source: Stuff TV English
It’s neat to see foldable display tech make it into more products, even if those products aren’t necessarily ready to replace the gear that’s currently doing the rounds. The Zenbook 17 Fold OLED feels like a showcase of what’s to come, only one you can go out and buy right now. Don’t think of it as a laptop, but as a big screen tablet that folds for transport, and it makes more sense. It’s still super niche, though, and crazy expensive. It’ll set US customers back an eye-watering $3500, putting it on par with a considerably more powerful 16in MacBook Pro. As a debut attempt it’s got a real wow factor, but early impressions suggest only those that live on the truly bleeding edge will want to add it to their shortlist.

It’s tough being first. You set yourself as the bar for the industry standard. And with nothing to compare against, there’s a high risk of failure. You won’t find that with the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED. It’s an elegant conversation starter, drawing all the oohs and ahhs as it transforms from a ginormous tablet to a dainty laptop. But most importantly, it’s easy to use. Like a lump of clay, you can bend and shape the Fold into whatever you need it to be for work or play. Need to bang out a paper? Try Laptop or Desktop Mode. Want to watch movies? Bask in the OLED goodness in tablet mode. Gotta multitask? Try Extended mode or connect a monitor, smartphone or tablet. Hell, you can even use it to curl up with a book. The U-series processor is more powerful than it has any right to be and the same goes for the integrated graphics. However at $3,499, which is definitely an innovation and first-at-bat tax, I definitely wanted a few more ports and a pen. Also, the battery life could definitely be better. The price is definitely a deterrent when you can get a fully tricked-out M2 MacBook Air for $1,000 cheaper.

We like the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED - we like it a lot - but foldable tech is still a while off making it into the mainstream.

70% Asus Zenbook Fold 17 review: a foldable PC, done right
Source: Digital Trends English
The Asus Zenbook Fold 17 is a first-generation product, and in many ways, it still feels like one. It doesn’t feel refined, nor does every feature make a lot of sense. As a first-gen experiment, it’s also undoubtedly way too expensive. That’s common for products like this, but for $3,500, you really have to be buying into this thing for the long haul. For that amount of money, after all, you could buy a high-powered laptop, a portable external monitor, an iPad, and still have plenty of money left over. But it’s the first foldable PC that feels worthy of recommendation, albeit for the right person. The 17-inch screen size makes its use in desktop mode a huge benefit, especially for travelers on the go who need a larger screen to work with. The option to swing it around into a smaller clamshell laptop when you’re in a more restrained environment is extremely handy. Savvy buyers are right to wait for second or third-generation products to see how companies like Asus work out the kinks. As of now, foldable devices might not be the de facto future of laptops — but they’re certainly an interesting new form factor that does something no devices have been able to do in the past. If that’s not the definition of exciting, innovative tech, I don’t know what is.

Creating a foldable laptop is no mean feat, and credit has to be given to ASUS for tackling a niche market as such. The laptop-tablet hybrid shows signs of potential in its multitasking and creative work capabilities, as it looks to combine form and function with a selection of specially-tailored features. The next challenge now would be to strike a balance between various compromises, such as the lacking heavy-lifting muscle and port limitations, and its folding-specific performance to make the convincing argument that its US$3,499 price tag is a well-worth investment.

If this laptop didn’t have the problems it has, it would be a great laptop. That is, of course, something you can say about every single laptop that’s ever been reviewed. But the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED really is a step toward something excellent. It’s a very nice-looking device. Its compactible form factor makes it a dream to carry around. And it’s two sizes of laptop in one — which is something I, personally, would find quite useful in my daily process. It’s far from a workstation and not something you’d want to use for more than a general office workload. If that’s understood, though, the experience is generally smooth and not nearly as error-ridden as the ThinkPad X1 Fold’s was a year and a half ago. About 95 percent of the time, using the Zenbook 17 Fold was like using any other OLED laptop.

The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is an extraordinary foldable device, offering the advantages of both a clamshell laptop and giant 17-inch tablet. But with plenty of rough edges, including a lacklustre battery life, it’s difficult to justify spending so much money unless you’re a wealthy tech enthusiast.

70% Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED Review
Source: PC Mag English
The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED mostly accomplishes what it sets out to do, resulting in an impressive folding tablet that can function as a real laptop. There are some caveats, however: The price seems frankly exorbitant, especially considering the performance you can get from a mobile workstation or gaming laptop for the same cost (or even an ultraportable for a lower cost). The Fold falls well short of an Editors' Choice recommendation, though its innovation earns it an extra half star above the 3-star rating we'd otherwise give it. But viewed as a proof of concept for future, hopefully more affordable and accessible devices, the Zenbook Fold is undeniably cool. We're glad it exists.

60% Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review: The future is here, and it’s too expensive
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is one of the coolest laptop concepts I've seen in years. Now that I've spent some time using it at home and on the go, I feel confident saying it's also a decent laptop, one that you can reasonably expect to work or play on without fear it will suddenly flop closed or snap in half if you type too hard. But if you know you want a foldable laptop, the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is the best I've yet tested. It's admittedlyh also the only model I've yet tested, but we're just now seeing the beginning of a whole new category of foldable laptops. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold helped launch the category last year, and a follow-up is due in 2022 that could give the Fold some serious competition.
