Other integrated features include Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI connectivity, 802.11ax Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, a webcam, microphone, speakers, USB ports, and a combo audio jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Pro.

ScreenPad Plus

The ASUS ScreenPad Plus is a unique addition to the standard laptop. Placed above the keyboard and shifting it lower, the ScreenPad Plus measures 14" diagonally and features a 3840 x 1100 resolution and 178° wide viewing angles with touch support. This additional screen has plenty of possibilities for multitasking, convenience, and more.

ASUS Pen

The ASUS Pen stylus is also included with the ZenBook Pro Duo. Thanks to touch-support on the ScreenPad Plus, the ASUS Pen can be used directly on it to digitize handwritten notes, drawings, and more.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-Series Graphics

Based on NVIDIA's Turing architecture, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20-series graphics card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the Pascal architecture. Moreover, it features dedicated Ray-Tracing cores for enhanced graphical quality and life-like images.

Display

The ZenBook Pro Duo's main display measures 15.6" and is built with an OLED panel featuring a 3840 x 2160 4K UHD resolution and 100% DCI-P3 color coverage. Moreover, it has slim bezels for an 89% screen-to-body ratio that offers users a more immersive viewing experience.

NumberPad

Due to the design shift, the touchpad is relocated to the right of the keyboard and also functions as an LED-lit number pad when needed.

Face Unlock

Easily log into your system with just a glance, thanks to the built-in webcam and Windows Hello.

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Cortana & Alexa

Cortana and Alexa are virtual assistants that can help you with a variety of tasks such as settings up reminders and even smart-home connected functions. A built-in light bar lights up when you talk to them, so you know they're listening.

Audio

The audio system in this laptop was designed in collaboration with the ASUS Golden Ear team and experts at Harman Kardon to provide users with loud, quality audio with minimal distortion.

Windows 10 Pro

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Windows 10 Pro

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15.6" Reviews

Best laptop I've ever used

By Stan M. M.
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-08-24

This laptop met or exceeded all my expectations. The build quality is excellent, as is the performance. I do a lot of multi-tasking and working from specs where its very nice to have the second screen to have documents etc. to refer to while working on the main screen. Before I bought it I heard complaints that its thicker and heavier that other laptops. It looks thin like other contemporary laptops, but it is a bit heavier than other laptops that offer a lot less, but not objectionably so. The power cube is substantial and a bit heavy. Everyone has their own preference in keyboards. I really like the UX581 keyboard. The battery life is shorter than lesser laptops, but I get 3 to 4 hours of my normal use, which is all I need. It runs cool because of the dual fans and the unique design and the performance is great, as expected. Now, some complaints. The battery is not removable (not replaceable.) And you would expect an expensive laptop to have a way to attach a locking cable. It doesn't. A very strange omission. Its cheap to add a small slot in the case! Overall, if your work is easier with two screens, this is the best choice!

Best Laptop I've ever owned

This is by far the most efficient laptop I've ever owned in my life. It took a bit to get used to the keyboard and track pad being in a different place but the monitor above the keyboard far outweighs that small con. Being able to use my editing software and have a web browser open has made my workflow much easier. the only downside is that it does not have an SD card port and the speakers aren't the best BUT do not let that discourage you from making this purchase.

I bought what I thought was the Next-Gen Video Editing Laptop but made the mistake of assuming that it would have multiple ports for every kind of connection you might need for connecting video gear. When the laptop arrived there was not only no instruction manual - but no mention of how to find one online. After the set up process -the laptop developed a problem with the Intel Wi-Fi Adaptor stopped working. I could not contact tech support from Asus due to Covid-19 Virus personnel restrictions - so I called B&H and spoke with a very helpful computer tech who walked me through a process of un-installing the Wi-Fi Adaptor and downloading the driver from the Intel Website (which I had to do from another computer - because I discovered that my new $3,000 Laptop did not include an Ethernet port for a hard wired Wi-Fi Connection). Unfortunately, the downloaded driver software did not correct the problem with the Wireless Wi-Fi Adaptor - so the computer tech said the only other option was to do a Total Reset of the Laptop - which meant that I had to start the rather lengthly set-up process all over again. Upon closer inspection of the lack of connectivity ports on the laptop (ie. No Ethernet Port, No SD Card Reader, only one ThunderBolt 3 Port and one USB-C Port) - I realized that I was going to have to purchase a $230 Caldigit Docking Station in order to get all the connection ports that I would need. Needless to say, I was very disappointed that I had made a very bad assumption that a video editing laptop at this price point would include a full array of connectivity options - SO Buyer Be Ware of this Issue! Otherwise - it looks like it might turn out to be a great laptop - assuming I can get the tech support I will need in order to figure out how to learn all about its new dual screen features.

The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo is the best descion I have made to invest my money in. With all the features and software I can edit videos, double look at all with the 2 screens making it easier and less time consuming too. I also like that u can look at 2 documents at the same time, review my work and not flipping back and forth it's all there on the 2 screens. I have to say this is the best choice I've made and I highly recommend to others to purchase, and with the 12 month financing from B&H gives me time to pay it off in a timely manner without stressing. I will be buying another one when I start my business up forsure.. very impressed with the product and highly recommended others
