zenbook edition 30 launched asus computex featured

Asus is celebrating 30 years of the company at Computex 2019, announcing a slew of new products. After the ZenBook Pro Duo, and the new ZenBook 13, ZenBook 14, and ZenBook 15 laptops, the company also announced a special 30th anniversary edition laptop, aptly named the ZenBook Edition 30.

The ZenBook Edition 30 comes in a handcrafted, Italian-leather encased lid that looks incredible. The ZenBook Edition 30 also features rose gold diamond cut edges and trim bar, along with an 18-karat rose-gold plated 30th anniversary logo on the lid (which somewhat reminds me of Star Trek).
