At a glance
ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo offers a new design
From the outside, the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo looks like any other premium laptop. However, on the inside, it is a whole new world because of its dual 4K screens.
It features an HDR-compatible 15-inch 16:9 OLED main display along with a 32:9 IPS "ScreenPad Plus" secondary screen. Below the smaller display, there's a full-sized keyboard and a number pad-cum-trackpad on the right corner.

ScreenPad Plus gets a dedicated software for improved workflows
While the main display is great, the ScreenPad Plus steals the show.
The matte-finished screen comes preloaded with ScreenXpert software which enables multi-screen window and app management. This means you can use it as a full 32:9 monitor or split it into two smaller 16:9 1080p windows.
Moreover, you can de-clutter your main display by placing apps, toolbars, and menus on the ScreenPad Plus.

The flagship laptop is powered by upto an eight-core Intel Core i9 processor, coupled with upto 32GB of RAM, 1TB PCIe 3.0 SSD, and gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU.
It also packs four far-field microphones that allow you to summon Alexa and Cortana with voice commands.
