Press Release

ASUS announced an epic collaboration with A BATHING APE® (BAPE®), the renowned Japanese street-style fashion brand. The collaboration showcases the iconic streetwear brand’s trademark design style etched directly into the high-performance laptop's rugged, street-savvy metallic lid, palm rest and touchpad. The unique BAPE® camo design also adorns an exclusive bundle of matching accessories.

A collaboration of leading tech and fashion brands

ASUS has teamed up with A BATHING APE® to bring users the first-ever BAPE® laptop bundle: the Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition. Vivobook’s energetic and vibrant style vibes perfectly with the ostentatious BAPE® aesthetic. With a shared passion for creativity, diversity and unwavering authenticity, this collaboration is a seamless combination of bold street fashion and pioneering tech.

Inside the world's first BAPE® laptop bundle

More than just a laptop, the ASUS Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition is a gift box filled with delightful surprises that fans and collectors will cherish for years to come. The first thing to catch the eye is the unique BAPE® camo design, which uniquely combines BABY MILO® and BAPE® brand elements for the first time ever.

As for the thin and light Intel® Evo™-verified Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition laptop itself, its equipped with Intel® Core™ i9-13900H model with 16GB RAM. The 180° lay-flat hinge provides flexibility for any situation, and the laptop’s ASUS ErgoSense keyboard adds to the smooth user experience.

Users can expect a compelling audiovisual experience with a stunning 2.8K (2880x1620) OLED display tuned to a fast 120 Hz refresh rate, and a screen-to-body ratio of 86% thanks to the attractive thin-bezel design. Staying loyal to BAPE®’s hip-hop origins, users can look forward to an amazing stereo sound system certified by Harman Kardon that delivers powerful and immersive sound.

Pushing the boundaries of design, the photo-light-etched Vivobook S is a piece of art crafted to perfection. In the manufacturing process, ASUS used techniques inspired by the semiconductor industry's use of photolithography, in a nod to the high-tech caliber of the collaboration. Sandblasting is what gives the device its stylish matte finish. The unique designs extend even to the touchpad and more.

Exclusive matching accessories

To protect this one-of-a-kind device there's a convenient and compact all-in-one carry bag in matching exclusive ASUS x BAPE® camo. While compact, this carry case is roomy enough for nestling all the laptop’s accessories alongside the device itself while on-the-go. Color-wise, the metallic laptop and carry case combo comes in either Midnight Black with green camo or Cool Silver with blue camo.

As for the mouse, water-transfer printing applies the distinctive camo pattern to the device, which has interchangeable covers in matching blue or green — depending on the chosen bundle colourway — along with the standard black cover supplied with each model. Also designed with portability and convenience in mind, the mouse features a handy strap featuring the iconic BAPE® head.

To further capture the essence of the ASUS and BAPE® brands, the bundle includes an exclusive BABY MILO® figurine cradling a miniaturized Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition laptop, uniting the brands’ unique spirits. This limited-edition figurine is exclusive to this bundle and is a must-have item for fans of BABY MILO®. To complete the look, exclusive sticker sets are included in the bundle. These durable, water-resistant stickers include a set that can be used to decorate the laptop's ErgoSense keyboard. The device also ships with exclusive desktop wallpaper and live wallpaper options, both featuring the unique Vivobook x BAPE® camo.
