Recently, the trend with laptops has been dual screens. Companies have hopped on that bus to include a second screen such as HP with a 6″ screen on their Omen 2X S. We also have Dell who has put a dual-screen device with two full-size screens on their roadmap for mid-2020. Asus has come in with the Zenbook Pro Duo which provides an excellent middle ground in between those two options with a large screen above the keyboard.

A 14″ 4K Secondary Screen – Also Offer A Cheaper Version

Asus calls that second display the ZenScreen Plus, an extension of the technology it has used for ZenScreen in mousepads previously. On the Pro Duo, it’s 14 inches diagonally, and it’s 12.6 inches on the regular Duo which much larger to HPs take on a second screen.

The display has its own touch screen app drawer, which can also be used to save windows arrangements for easy productivity and organization, suited very well people in the business industry. In one demo, there was a profile that opened up a travel site on the top screen with a calendar and a map on the bottom to decide when and where to go which is quite impressive.

There are many use cases for the laptop with the extra screen. For content creators, the preview of something could on the small screen while the software itself could be on the main 4K screen. For gamers, Discord or a Twitch chat could be on the smaller screen, and your game could be on the main screen. The Pro includes a wrist rest and stylus with a larger screen while the regular version has a smaller screen and fewer features. The specs of the laptop are down below.
