Review Guide

Redefining the Laptop Experience

The ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is a game-changer in the laptop market. It's a foldable 17.3-inch laptop that provides an immersive visual experience. When folded, it's a 12.5-inch device that's easy to carry, but when unfolded, it becomes an expansive OLED display that is perfect for multitasking or sharing content with others. The OLED panel emits 70% less harmful blue light, making it ideal for prolonged usage.

The ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED features a magnesium aluminium alloy chassis with a tough and durable hinge that has passed over 30,000 open/close cycles in tests. Additionally, the device is PANTONE Validated to provide the most precise colour accuracy.

Finally, ASUS OLED laptops deliver exceptionally detailed and realistic visuals, with a cinema-grade 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, and offer better colour performance at any brightness level.

What is ASUS Adaptive Lock and how does it work?

ASUS Adaptive Lock is an AI-powered security feature included in the Zenbook 17 Fold OLED laptop. It uses an HD infrared (IR) camera powered by Intel's Visual Sensing Controller to detect the user's presence and control the screen's brightness and locking status accordingly. There are three modes available:

Look-Away Screen Dimming: This mode uses facial recognition technology to detect when the user looks away from the screen and automatically dims the screen to protect their privacy and extend battery life. When the user looks back at the screen, it instantly returns to full brightness.

Walk-Away Lock: This mode senses when the user moves away from the device and automatically dims the screen, turns it off, and locks the device, ensuring security and privacy.

Wake on Return: This mode detects when the user or someone else appears in front of the device and activates the IR camera to verify the user's identity. If Windows Hello is set up, it will log the user in right away.

Users can customize and enable/disable these modes individually using the MyASUS software UI.

The ASUS Zenbook 17 Fold OLED comes with a 5MP AI camera featuring a colour sensor for automatic adjustments to the display's brightness and colour temperature, ASUS 3D Noise Reduction technology for clear video calls, and new webcam effect features like Lighting Optimization, Background Blurring, Eye Tracking, and Motion Tracking.

The audio system features Sound by Harmon Kardon and Dolby Atmos® with quad speakers, smart amp technology that increases volume by up to 350%, and AI noise-cancelling audio for clear communication in any scenario.

GlideX is a cross-device screen-sharing solution, and MyASUS is an exclusive software for ASUS laptops that houses all important ASUS apps in one place, including System Diagnosis, Customer Service, and Hardware Settings. Link to MyASUS allows users to integrate their PC with their phone seamlessly.
