The ZenBook Duo has a 14-inch, 1080p screen and a secondary 12.6-inch panel. The second screen takes up the top half of the Duo's deck while the keyboard is on the front. The Intel Core i7-10510U CPU with 16GB of RAM did an excellent job.

The secondary display covers only 59 percent and 38 percent of sRGB and AdobeRGB, respectively, compared to 100 percent and 63 percent on the main screen.

The Asus ZenBook Duo UX481 (sans pro) shaves $1,000 off the price ($1,499 in its sole configuration) At 4 pounds and 12.7 x 8.8 x 0.8 inches, the laptop is a bit bulkier than similarly sized single-screen laptops. The 12.6-inch, 1920 x 515 secondary display that sits below the main screen is called ScreenPad Plus.
