This computer has a regular screen, second screen above the keyboard and even a third mouse screen.This is the Asus Zenbook Pro Duo UX581. This device has two devices, hence the name Duo. These two screens help you do more tasks.
The first thing you’ll notice about this device is that the size and weight of this device. It is not a gaming device, though, rather it is a cool device that has some hefty weight to it. With these two screens, you can do multitasking and it will heavily enrich your experience.
You can watch a Youtube video while working on something else. This device comes with multiple screens. The laptop is made from aluminum with matte colors. It uses the ErgoLift hinges to help cool the device better and produce better sounds. And at the same time, it makes the keyboard tilted to make it easier for you to type on it.
The keyboard is a backlit, and the touchpad is on the right side with an LED number pad integrated on it. The device is also come with Military Grade, which means it withstands shocks. But the price of the device is 3700 usd, so you really need to take care of it.
The weight of the device is 2.5kg. By the way, the device comes with a palm base to make it easier to type on the keyboard.

The device comes with 2 screens. Both support touch input. The first one is OLED 15.6″ 4K with slim bezels, and the resolution is 3840×2160. The aspect ratio is 16:9, and it supports DCI-P3 100%. It also supports HDR. The screen occupies 89% of the front of the device.
Let’s discuss the ScreenPad Plus:
It is under the main screen. It is a wide 14″ screen with 3849×1100 resolution. It supports touch input. It also carries a lot of specs and features.
For example, you can make as an extension of the main screen, or you could open 3 different apps on it. It also comes with the Quick Key app where it provides you with shortcuts like copy and paste and you can make your own shortcuts.
You can also draw on it using the Pen the comes with the device. There is a dedicated app for the Pen. The app name is Handwriting. The apps offers more features like showing suggested words to add it to your reminders or emails.
You can also watch YouTube videos on it or any other content while using the main screen. You can use it for multitasking. If you need two screens to work, this second screen could help you with multitasking.

The GPU is Nvidia RTX 2060. It supports Ray Tracing with 6GB of GDDR6 RAM. The RAM is 43GB DDR4 with 2666MHz frequency.,The storage is SDD 1TB PCIe X4
Let’s discuss the performance:
In Pc Mark 10 test, the device scored 5266 points. While in 3DMark Time Spy test, it scored 5965 points. We also tried Battlefield 5 and it scored between 43 to 64fps using the FHD Ultra settings. Even with the DXR enabled.
The system is Windows 10 Home 64bit. The system comes with My Asus app, which enables you to know the status of the device.

The laptop comes with a surround sound system called Sonic Master Stereo from Asus.
They cooperated with Harman Kardon, and after experimenting it, it provides very good quality, and it depends on the content itself.
The battery lasts up to 7.5 hours, which is great considering it comes with 2 screens.I also wish to have more battery but it depends on your usage.
This Asus Zenbook Pro Duo UX581 laptop is available in light blue color and it costs 3700 usd! The price varies by region, as well as after obsolescence.
The design is great and the build quality is high. It is great that it has an additional screen that supports touch input and Pen input. It performs really well, especially with the i9 CPU and Nvidia RTX 2060 card.
The price is really high, but it offers great technologies, enabling you to enjoy the device. That’s why the price is high. You might also find some troubles trying to turn on the screen pad plus, but hopefully with updates, it will be solved.
I also advise you to restart your device when you encounter a problem with the screen. The ports selection are normal compared to the price you’ll pay for it. Most of us will need a special adapter to get a network port or any other old ports. They at least could’ve added more USB ports to it.
This device is really great with it features and specs. but can you use it to edit videos on it?
To some extent, yes.
The CPU is great and the GPU performs well. It also performs well with Autocad. The specs of the device support it.
Devices that support Autocad and 4K video editing are very unique and has a small targeted group.
This device is an investment for you with all of its specs and features. It also comes with Asus warranty. This is the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo. It is a great and innovative device.
This device is supposed to be an investment. It will last with you for more than a year as it has an i9 CPU in it.
This CPU is very powerful. It could be a gaming device, video editing device, multitasking device, and you could also use it for live broadcasting. It runs Windows with is also packed with lots of features. It is up to you to decide. I hoped for a bigger battery and more ports.
Nothing is perfect. This device brought a new feature that isn’t yet available on other laptops; the second screen and ability to multitask.
You will enjoy it while traveling.😍 I am used to using 3 screens, but I can take two of these laptops with me when I travel.
This is the end of this review, See you soon. Peace be upon you all.🙏🥱
