ASUS has saved some special edition products for Computex on its 30th anniversary. The company presented the ZenFone 6 Edition 30, ZenBook Edition 30, and Prime X299 Edition 30 motherboard. It is a perfect trio to reflect the company’s expanded portfolio over the decades. The hardware isn’t brand new, they all feature ASUS’ 30th anniversary “A” logo, along with some exclusive looks and specifications. The ZenFone 6 sports ASUS’ classic concentric-circle finish on a curved matte black body. It is maxed out to 12GB of RAM plus 512GB of storage. These were basically capped at 8GB and 256GB, respectively.
The phone is otherwise identical to the rest of the series, featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, a flip dual camera, a 6.4-inch notch-less FHD+ LCD and a massive 5,000mAh battery. People will also find the similar rear fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, dual-microphone noise cancellation, headphone jack, and NFC. The ZenBook Edition 30 is a little more extravagant. It is almost stealing the limelight from the new dual-screen ZenBook Duo series and paying homage to the leather-bound W6 and S6 from 2006. This special edition laptop has its lid wrapped in Pearl White genuine Italian leather, topped off with an 18-karat rose gold-plated logo.
The machine also comes with a matching white mouse, a mouse pad, and a leather sleeve. Specification is based on the freshly updated ZenBook 13 with ScreenPad 2.0 and NVIDIA MX250 GPU. People will find the same old 95 percent screen-to-body ratio, 8th-gen Intel Core i7 CPUs, 16GB of RAM, PCIe SSDs, and gigabit WiFi as well. There is also the Prime X299 Edition 30. It pays tribute to the first-ever motherboard of ASUS, the ISA-386C from 1990. It’s originally a spin on the Prime X299-Deluxe II with the same dual M.2 slots including passive heat sinks, dual Thunderbolt 3 ports with DisplayPort input, 5G Aquantia Ethernet, Intel Gigabit LAN, and WiFi 6. It also has a fancy 2-inch LiveDash OLED for showing system vitals or custom art.
