Rounding out the package are a pair of Thunderbolt 3-compatible USB-C ports, a full-size USB 3.1 port, HDMI output, WiFi 6, a 90Wh battery, and of course the other monitor. This time, ASUS went with a larger 14-inch 4K panel to act as a ScreenPad – more on that a bit. Of course, the sheer amount of stuff ASUS squeezed into this thing means it may be best suited to sit in one place – it weighs just under 5.3 pounds of hair.
For those looking for something a little more portable, there is the ZenBook Duo 1
ASUS packed all that plus a 70Wh battery in a body that weighs just over 3.5 pounds. It can only be worth it if you are a fan of the 12.6-inch ScreenPad Plus screen that sits directly above the keyboard.
Now, about the other screenshots. One of the big blows to the original ZenBook Duo and Pro Duo’s secondary monitors was the way they were oriented – they were flush with the rest of the laptops, and although the bottom of half of these computers were angled slightly upwards, it could still be difficult to see ScreenPad Plus in an instant. Not so this time. In both of the new ZenBook Duo models, the ScreenPad swings upwards to sit a little more clean in the eye line – think a 9.5-degree angle for the Pro Duo and a 7-degree angle for the smaller Duo.
