ZenBook Duo unboxing: Dual screen laptops are here! [review]


ASUS brings dual screen display to the laptop form factor with the ZenBook Duo and ZenBook Pro Duo. It features a secondary screen called the Screen Pad Plus, which improves on the Screen Pad 2.0 featured in last year’s ZenBook Pro by taking up the entire top half of the keyboard area. This is accomplished by moving the keyboard to the bottom half with the keypad to its right – a layout which immediately reminded us of the blank space found on the ROG Zephyrus S that we reviewed last year.
