  • Dave2D review of the ZenBook Pro Duo UX581. Is a Dual Screen Laptop ACTUALLY useful?
    Available Here -
    With a 9980HK and an RTX 2060, this can be used as a powerful gaming laptop but it's main focus for creative work. Can be equipped with up to 32 gigs of ram. Pricing TBA.

    This is by far the best implementation of a double screen we've seen. If the bottom panel could tilt up a bit, I think this thing would a lot better. Do you want to see more devices with double displays like this?

      What angle can you open the main display to? Can you get a good viewing angle on both screens by raising the rear edge of the laptop and using external peripherals?

      Dave, 3 weeks ago you said this laptop was super awesome but I can't help but notice now you're killing everything about it. What happened??! Good stuff though, I mean at least you're not lying to us

    How well would it run EVE? I'm asking there are some extra windows in the EVE client that I can see would be better down on the bottom screen allowing a cleaner game screen.

    Do you think the 2060 is enough for gaming cause there’s razer that comes with 2080 Max Q. This one comes with an 9gen CPU so I’m wondering if that balances it out.

    Best way is to stream. Chat on the touchscreen and game on the screen

    Top Screen: Game
    Bottom Screen: OBS and Chat?
    Thoughts? Just an idea. :)

    Hello! In fact, I was just about to buy it as a Gaming Laptop.. I know that a Asus ROG is actually better with a 140Hz IPS Screen... but, in fact, I Play mmo-rpg and I think I don’t Need a high refresh rate or 140 Hz (better for shooters ?). The Second screen of the pro Duo could be usefull for quest helping Websites or.. you See what I mean.
    So if you had, for the same price, the Choice between Asus Zenbook pro Duo (15,3“) or the Asus ROG Zephyrus S gx502gx to Play FF14, Wow... which one would you choose?

    U can probably use the bottom as a graphic tablet if ur into drawings and such, if im planning to buy this dat might be the reason why im considering buying it since i dont really wanna buy a grpahic tablet since i only do drawings as a hobby,😊

    For a programmer, like me, I code a lot and I need more screens, this is my dream laptop, but that is. So expensive for my wallet.

    Why do all content creator link the performance of notebooks with their Job? I want to see other performance examples as developing or music editing, sth like that for example the it or buisness world. Not only content creating. But to tilt the aspect on this Notebook. I believe second screen is nice to have, but not so effective as an external Monitor for example. Your eyes are always concentrated on the big screen and the small screen will distract you from the main job of your task. Applications need to use it to make it effective

    seems like they missed a few basic design iterations and brought this to market without sufficient R&D
    1) the idea of making the secondary screen movable -- this would improve viewing angle, allow "bezel-less" placement below the main screen, far better airflow for cooling, even detachable
    2) ertainly should have its own set of power management and fully off settings
    3) touchpad should be a display (like the other Asus where the touchpad is a display) not just a num-pad.
    4) touchscreen mode -- if you're paying for a 4K touchscreen, the laptop has to be a 2-in-1 or convertible or detachable keyboard, preferably with a great hinge design
    5) no dock/charge/"garage" for the pen (?)
    6) not USB-C charging (?) ... great that it has fast-charge, but much more useful to have charging from USB-C (I assume it does, it's just not noted)
    7) 1 USB-C TB3 is underwhelming for a 5lb lump of a desktop replacement
    8) should have a bespoke mouse in the box (preferably with preprogrammed keys to control the screen functions
    9) first versions are "expensive" and "very expensive" with no option to choose storage, memory or graphics ... I guess they're trying for a Tesla-like cash-grab on early adopter gotta-have-it first-kid-on-the-block status-conscious types
    10) the Pro Duo proves a second display is very useful (I'm using one now ... an iPad ... wireless, also still an iPad ...) so I think this is not a game-changer, but if/when they address items 1 thru 9, it could become a real "wow" that creates its own segment in the market and people become accustomed to finding the laptop they like, then deciding "one display, or two?" as part of the build spec.

    I think this laptop was built for me XD I have very bad vision so tend to hold my computer with one hand on my chest tilted up so I can see the keyboard. Now with the second screen I can do multitasking and put a typing app at the bottom above the keyboard, so ergonomically it fits XD

    Why didn't they make it folding instead of two separate screens..

    I think I really wanna buy this one. I truly like the design. I’m not a programmer or a content creator. I only do web surfing and game playing. I think the i9 and 2080 GPU is totally enough for that. Don’t tell me about other gaming laptops. Those design don’t seem attractive to me.

    this compared to the Intel Honeycomb Glacier, I go with the Intel one just because the second screen is brighter and much more lifted so you can use both screen on a easy way. Sad enough it's still a prototype and it can take a while before it is on the market

    Thanks for making this video review Dave and yes I too think I would really take time for people to get habitual to using the dual-display simultaneously. Oh and, by the way, you forgot to talk about the important - the Asus Stylus Pen (I think it's included with the device).

    Dave can you please suggest a middle ground to work and gaming in this form! As secondary screen will potentially be helpful for my animation and design work ( I think) but please suggest worthy system for work and gaming. Love your work. All the best :)

    The Asus Zenbook Pro Duo looks great but I have a feeling that it won't be a great typing and touchpad experience long-term... I was initially very excited about it but the more I've thought about it, the more I've realized that a good touchpad and good typing comfort is more important to me than a dedicated screen for timelines and other screen widgets... I actually think that they should have moved that extra screen to below the keyboard, where it could have served as an extra wide touchpad on its normal location as well as a combined writing/doodling area with digital pens. That way the touchpad wouldn't have been shoved all the way to the right and the keyboard would have remained at a comfortable distance for typing with no need for additional maneuvering and/or palm rests. The only thing lost would have been the direct physical screen extension feature but that's more of a gimmick anyway. OTOH, as mentioned, some have complained that at the current location it can be hard to view the extra screen even with the provided inclination unless your head is straight above the laptop. By moving the extra screen to below the keyboard, there would be no problem with visibility and no need for any inclination - and, best of all, no need for moving the keyboard or touchpad!

    Any web developer here? Do you think this is the best solution if we are working in a different places without bringing secondary monitor? I'm thinking of IDE on main screen while the live preview on secondary screen. Thoughts?
