Asus wanted to try something new and has done it. The company is giving another use of the ScreenPad by making it double. The secondary display with 5.5-inches and 1.920×1.080 has the purpose of working as a touchpad or another screen. By double it, ZenBook Duo is now a Plus-sized version. Let’s see what it has to offer more the new model.
ZenBook Pro Duo
Asus has given to the ZenBook Pro Duo a 15.6-inches and 3840×2160 OLED display, and another second display named ScreenPad Plus with 14 inches and 3840×1100 display. The ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 has the 9th Generation of Intel Core Processor with 32 GB memory, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics. The idea for the plus-sized ScreenPad is to have more productivity and effortless multitasking.
Also, at the Computex event, the company has announced that the ZenBook Duo UX481 will have a 14-inches and 1920×1080 display with a ScreenPad Plus with 12.6-inches and 1920×1080 display, and the nVidia GE Force MX250 graphic. Another Asus ScreenPad will be added to the ZenBook 13, 14, and 15 models, the ZenBook Flip 15, and the VivoBook S14 and S15 as well.
Moreover, Asus is not stopping here. The company has revealed a new prototype called the Prime Utopia. The prototype contains 7-inches OLED touch panel, new PCle slots, and water cooling for the heat management. The panel is designed to be connected through cable or Wi-Fi. It can be placed directly on the desktop, and users can modify the BIOS settings, the fan speeds, or turn it on or off.
Finally, the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 is not the most excellent laptop ever, with its battery life being low, and the large and prominent design. But the company has done a great job at trying something new with the ScreenPad that could be a winner in the future, with a little bit refinement.
