ASUS yet again brings a new player into their laptop lineup packing with a lot of punch under the hood – meet the Zenbook Pro Duo, their first laptop to feature the ScreenPad Plus – a gorgeous second display on the laptop.

ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo

The whole idea behind the ASUS Zenbook always leads to productivity, and with that said – the Zenbook Pro Duo is no joke either. Starting off with the only highlight of this laptop – the ScreenPad Plus. Last year, ASUS showcased their very first iteration of ScreenPad on their Zenbook Pro 15 – which we reviewed last year. This time around, they are taking it to a whole another level. The Zenbook Pro Duo, pretty much like the name suggests – comes with a dual display configuration.

Dual Display Goodness

1/3

The Zenbook Pro Duo packs a 15.6” inch 4K OLED Display with ultra thin bezels – about 89% screen-to-body ratio. Just like the name suggests, OLED is capable of producing impressive colors and true to life black color. It supports a wider color gamut with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and HDR as well.

The second display on the Zenbook Pro Duo is – without a doubt – lit AF. Placed right above the keyboard which looks pretty similar to the Zephyrus counterpart, it houses a whopping 14” 4K UHD Display in a 32:9 aspect ratio. Its basically a secondary display meant for take your multitasking to a whole another level. With that said, the ScreenPad Plus comes with quick tools like App Switcher, ViewMax and App Navigator – making it easier to switch between things. One of the best things about this particular second display is that – it allows Creators to dock their video previews, timeline controls, audio mixer tucked into this display and let the main display handle the rest. Categorizing content in a very efficient manner.

To make things interesting, ASUS is working together with Corel to optimize the whole experience – so creators can take complete advantage of the ScreenPad tools. With the help of the stylus, users will be able to write and draw as well.
