These days, everyone wants a branded laptop – whether it is a new MacBook Pros or the Dell XPS 15. However, Asus is taking things to the next level with its new Asus ZenBook Pro Duo.
This laptop has a unique design with powerful hardware. The laptop is powered with an Intel Core i9 and Nvidia RTX 2060. But it’s the screen that set them apart, Asus ZenBook Pro Duo has a second ‘Screen’, on the keyboard.
Let’s talk in detail about ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo
The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo isn’t light or thin as its competitors. But it isn’t thick as a beefy gaming laptop. The laptop is thick enough to weigh down any backpack.
But this additional bulk is worth it due to the lovely design. When you open the laptop, the back of the screen lifts up the keyboard, making it easier to type for a long time. This design also brings up the second screen up, giving it a look that both screens are continuous.
Both the displays are 4K and OLED panels; the main screen has an aspect ratio of 16:9 at 3,840 x 2,160 while the keypad screen has a 32:9 aspect ratio at 3,840 x 1,100.
Now, you would be thinking about why the second display? Asus gave us some hints by saying that they want users to have the ability to run Adobe Premiere or Photoshop while having controls on the keypad screen. This will come in handy who like to operate on a touchscreen as well as a keyboard.
The only downside of the side is that they have mispositioned the keyboard and it will be weird for the initial days. Then it will be fine.
During our first interaction, the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo looks incredibly fast. The operating system is smooth as ever, and moving programs between the two displays are very quick due to the similar resolutions.
The laptop has a powerful Intel Core i9 processor, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 and 16GB of RAM. With Dual screen and high RAM, it is very easy to operate two tasks at once. But the laptop isn’t suitable for gaming due to the low graphics card, you can still play some light games.
Battery and other features:
The laptop has a decent battery, which will be last a day easily. The standard out feature is the connectivity. The laptop features Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6, and Alexa voice integration too.
Pricing and availability:
ASUS hasn’t revealed the price yet, but you can expect the laptop to be expensive due to the amazing design. Report suggests that ASUS will start shipping the laptop in the third quarter of 2019.
Although there is no information about the price, we are sure that the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo is going to be on the expensive side. However, if you are looking to buy a new laptop that has an excellent performance, can do multitasking at ease and attracted to the design. Then we strongly recommend you to wait for the release of this laptop.
ASUS shocked everyone with their new flagship laptop at Computex 2019. This dual screen technology is used for the first time, and we expect this to be a huge hit. It would be interesting to see how the other company react to it. But one thing is for sure, the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo is featured with one of the unique design ever to grace in the laptop industry.
