The extra control associated with the desktop console makes you more efficient, but laptops must be portable. For years, designers have been trying to show off a pair of second-generation laptops, but Asu may be closer than ever to implement dual-screen laptops. New Zenbuk Duo Series. These laptops will start shipping at $ 1,000 later this month.

Asus has built a few devices in the Zenbuk Duo line, which show a second display above the keyboard and the bottom of the main display. The 2021 Asus ZenBook Duo lineup features 14- and 15-inch (technically 15.6-inch) models, both of which include redesigned screenpad plus hardware – what Asu calls a second display.

The Zenbuk Pro Duo 15 has a 15.6-inch 4K (3840 x 2160) OEL panel, and the Zenbuk Duo 14 has a 14-inch 1080p LCD. Both devices support Intel’s 10th or 11th processor (processor), and 14 have the latest Iris X integrated graphics by default. A version of GeForce MX450 is also available. Pro Duo 15 supports up to Core i9 CPU (10th gen) and GeForce 3070 GPU.

Although these laptops are more than fitted. The new Spypad Plus takes up the same space between the keyboard and the screen, but the screenpad is no longer flat on the keyboard. It tends to sit at a more comfortable angle and align with the bottom of the main screen. Asus had to create custom software for the last Gene Duos, which was very painful. Asus claims to have upgraded its “Screen Expert” collection, which manages content on the second screen. For example, between the two displays there is a new window flash feature that allows you to move windows faster, and there are touch controls that can be customized for apps like Photoshop.

The main drawback of this design is not solved by the new screen design – your keyboard is still moved to the front of the laptop. Without wristbands, it would not be fun to type on this device for long periods of time, but it would cost you a second display on a laptop form.

The ZenBook Pro Duo 15 OLED will launch in April, but the price is unknown. Zenbuk Duo 14 Available for pre-order on January 14 and will be available on January 22. Basic $ 1,000 Model Core i5-1135G7 CPU, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD storage and Intel integrated graphics.
