Asus has unveiled its latest Zenbook 17 Fold in India which is a laptop that comes with a foldable screen. There’s a 17.3-inch foldable OLED touchscreen with 1,920×2,560 pixels resolution, 4:3 aspect ratio, and 0.2ms of response time. The most interesting thing about the laptop is its price tag, which is actually higher than the Ola S1 Pro, Ola’s top-end electric scooter.
The Asus Zenbook 17 Fold has been priced at Rs 3,29,990 in India. In comparison, the Ola S1 Pro is priced around Rs 1,10,000, which is less than half of what the new Asus laptop costs. The laptop can be purchased online via the Asus e-shop, Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Reliance Digital, Vijay Sales, and offline stores such as Asus Exclusive Stores, ROG Stores, and other Asus approved dealers.
The Zenbook 17 Fold debuted in the US back in September. In the region, it came with a price tag of $3,499 (approx Rs 2,78,300).
