Asus Zenbook Pro Duo
Here the new Generation of Laptop Begins. 

Asus always likes to use its hometown trade show of Computex, which also happens to be the world’s biggest computer hardware event, to show off a wide and occasionally wild lineup of new products. And it’s really outdone itself this time — the headline announcement is one of the most decadent laptops ever created.

Asus is showcasing some crazy laptops at the Computex 2019. Two of these are the ZenBook Duo and ZenBook Pro Duo, which will also launch in India in a few months from now. In this quick review, we take a closer look at the two laptops.

ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo Laptop

The ZenBook Pro Duo has up to an eight-core Intel Core i9 processor with an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU. There are four far-field microphones designed for use with Alexa and Cortana, and there’s an Echo-style blue light at the bottom edge that activates with voice commands. It has a Thunderbolt 3 port, two USB-A ports, a headphone jack, and a full-sized HDMI port.

Performance seemed fine in my brief time using the ZenBook Pro Duo, without any hiccups or hitches even when running an intensive video editing software demo. It’s a fairly hefty laptop at 2.5kg (about 5.5lbs), but that’s to be expected given the gaming laptop-class internals. I would also expect its battery life to fall somewhere close to that particular category of products, though we’ll have to wait and see about that.

While both of the screens looked good, I will say they looked different. Part of that is because of the searing intensity of the primary OLED panel, but the ScreenPad Plus is also coated with a matte finish, and usually looks less bright because of how you naturally view it at an off angle.

ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo Laptop Screen, Screenpad and design

Asus is also making a cheaper and smaller 14-inch model called the ZenBook Duo. The design and concept is basically the same, but both screens are full HD rather than 4K, there’s no Core i9 option, and the discrete GPU has been heavily downgraded to an MX250.

Asus hasn’t announced pricing or availability for the ZenBook Pro Duo or the ZenBook Duo, but they’re expected to land in the third quarter of this year.

Screen and design:
As far as the screen is concerned, the Asus ZenBook Duo -- base model -- comes with 14-inch screen paired with 12.6-inches ScreenPad Plus. In comparison, the Pro model aka ZenBook Pro Duo comes packed with a 15.6-inch main screen paired with 14-inch ScreenPad Plus. Both the main and the second screen use an LCD panel, which I believe could have been brighter and offered better viewing angles.

To control the main screen of the ZenBook Duo series users can use the touchpad that sits right next to the keyboard, while the second screen can be controlled via fingertouch. On the ScreenPad Plus the taskbar sits on the left with the help of which the users will be able to perform any and every task they want.

So, what's the idea behind including the second screen on the ZenBook Duo? Speaking to India Today Tech, YC Chen, PC Product Director of Asus, said that the company has designed this laptop with two screen keeping in mind the creators and multitaskers out there.

In Use:

The ZenBook Duo lets users split screen to perform as many tasks as possible at the same time. For example, while booking flight tickets we often tend to go back and forth between an open webpage and calendar. This is one instance where the ZenBook Duo makes life easy. The users can simply open the calendar on the second screen, or any other window while the booking can be carried out on the main screen.

Another instance where the ZenBook Duo works perfectly is when the users wants to have a bigger pictures of something, say India's map for example. The India map can be first opened on the main screen and for a better viewing experience can be dragged or extended to the secondary screen -- with the help of the touchpad.
