ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review
Going on a vacation with a device is one of the finest methods to determine how well you and your companion operate together, much like in a relationship. I therefore travelled across four countries in nine days with the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED to thoroughly examine ASUS’ maiden attempt at creating a laptop with a flexible display. My experience was pleasantly favourable, and despite a few faults that still need to be resolved, it rekindled my enthusiasm for the category as a whole (particularly in light of Lenovo’s ambitious but unsuccessful debut attempt back in 2020).The Zenbook 17 Fold starts at ₹3,62,990.00, but that doesn’t necessarily imply you should go out and buy one. But for all the critics of foldable laptops out there, ASUS’ most recent effort has shown that it’s simply too early to dismiss the upcoming generation of cutting-edge flexible laptops.
It nearly seems as though ASUS copied the ThinkPad X1 Fold’s design, enlarged it, and then used it as the basis for the Zenbook 17 Fold. It’s true that the leather panels and some stunning frosted glass on the back of the Zenbook make it a touch more attractive, but it’s obvious that ASUS didn’t aim to stray too far from Lenovo’s model. We have a large flexible OLED
display with a built-in kickstand and a detachable magnetic keyboard that perfectly fits inside the space created when the device is folded in half. I should mention that the display doesn’t have any noticeable creases.Even while it weighs just over four pounds (4.04 to be exact) and measures 1.25 inches thick in clamshell form, the Zenbook 17 Fold is still lighter than many other comparably sized conventional laptops like Dell’s XPS 17.
