During Computex 2024, ASUS displayed a new notebook concept that features a rear screen with the eInk standard. Known as “Dali”, it is a modified version of the Zephyrus G14 and, at the moment, is capable of using “virtual stickers” and some images created by generative artificial intelligence.

According to a company representative, the device shown in Taipei features a 12-inch screen with a resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels, capable of working with only 6 colors. Although the number seems limited, this is considerable for the technology, which tends to be more associated with digital book readers and features black and white settings.

Tom’s Hardware states that the modified version of the Zephyrus G14 shown at the event features vibrant colors, but gives away the fact that it is still in the early stages of development. According to the website, Each image takes approximately 20 seconds to appear on screenwhich is quite far from ideal.

The site also states that, at least at the moment, ASUS has not offered further details about the features that the eInk screen could bring. While theoretically it should allow documents to be read with less energy consumption, the company’s software only allowed the addition of digital stickers at the current time.

Dali still appears to be at a very early stage of development, only allowing the use of existing stickers, the addition of simple texts to them or the creation of rudimentary images made with artificial intelligence. The creation process is limited, and it takes a considerable amount of time for the result to be applied not modified Zephyrus G14.

As the product is still a concept, the eInk screen did not fill its entire back cover, which resulted in somewhat strange results. So far, ASUS has not provided predictions about whether it wants to continue with the project and make it commercially viable, or whether this will be just one of its ideas that will not gain further development.
