  • Beautiful 240Hz display
  • Two 4K touchscreens
  • Good battery life
  • ScreenPad Plus is too small for a second screen

Summary

The UX581 is one of the first laptops to ever feature a 4K UHD OLED touch screen on the market. Moreover, its ScreenPad Plus adds another 4K IPS touch screen to give the device more display area than any similarly-sized laptop has ever delivered. The ScreenPad Plus also brings new possibilities to interact with the laptop. Its numeric keypad / touchpad combo solution is elegant as it is utilitarian.

The 15-inch Asus ZenBook Pro Duo is a potential photo-editing powerhouse. You can get the ZenBook in a few configurations, which seem to differ regionally. The entry-level model in the US runs $2,500 for a six-core Core i7-9750H.

Sentiment Score[*] 82%
Reviewers from Expertreviews have found the following[***]:
The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo has a 15.6in touch-enabled panel with a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution. The lower display, known as the ScreenPad Plus, is a 14in LCD touchscreen with a matte finish. The base has to house that second display, as well as a pretty serious set of cooling fans and heat vents. It feels more like a gaming laptop than a workstation, although its design is understated compared to Asus' ROG laptops.

  • Sleek design
  • Excellent battery life

Sentiment Score[*] 74%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The UX581 is noticeably thicker and heavier than what we've come to expect from the series. The second screen is matte in contrast to the glossy second screen of the HP Omen X 2S 15. The main QWERTY keys of the UX581 have both deeper travel and crisper feedback than on the GX501.
