ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo hands-on: A bizarre yet useful dual-screen laptop

Each once in for a spell, an instructions agreeably shocks me. What’s more, that is the thing that happened when ASUS brought the new ZenBook Pro Duo to our office in New York a week ago to give us a review preceding its Computex debut today. It’s difficult to portray this peculiar looking machine, however consider it a practically double screen workstation. We’re not discussing the completely double screen Project Precog journal that ASUS divulged last Computex, yet the Pro Duo feels like the center phase of a transformative procedure towards that regrettably heavenly end.

Envision a MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar that extended down towards the trackpad, pushing the console underneath it. That is practically what the ZenBook Pro Duo’s base deck resembles: A physical console takes up the base half, with a 14-inch wide showcase sitting above it.

There’s no room on this deck for a touchpad after the console, so ASUS moved it to one side of the keys. This structure is like the one on the organization’s ROG Zephyrus gaming PC and on the two machines, the pivot extends out marginally beneath the PC to somewhat lift the console when you open the journal, to take into consideration better wind stream and a progressively happy with composing edge.

It took me for a moment to conform to having the trackpad on the right, since my fingers normally meander towards the space bar to utilize the mouse. Be that as it may, when I was in the correct spot, the touchpad felt similarly as smooth, responsive and natural as different setups I’m utilized to. I hauled windows around a screen and squeezed to focus in on sites similarly as I would on some other PC.

This touchpad has an additional aptitude, however: With the push of a catch, you can turn on LED traces for a numpad and use it to punch in digits.

What separates the ZenBook Pro Duo from scratch pad in its group is the optional 14-inch 4K LCD touchscreen that ASUS is calling the ScreenPad Plus. You can treat this like a different showcase and drag applications down to it from the essential 15.6-inch screen. ASUS reps opened Spotify and File Explorer on the ScreenPad Plus while we chipped away at a spreadsheet up top. Every one of the three projects ran easily as we performed multiple tasks, and I could reposition the applications anyway I loved.
