Reviewers from ndtv have found the following[***]:
The ZenBook Duo UX481 is available in only one colour, Celestial Blue. A signature ZenBook touch is the subtle concentric ring pattern on the lid radiating outwards from the Asus logo, which in this case is off-centre. Most of the body is made out of metal, and everything feels very solid. The keyboard is compressed into roughly as much space as on a 10-inch or 11-inch netbook, and those were never very good.

Sentiment Score[*] 78%
Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
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 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.
