Back in June this year, Asus gave Techweez a rare opportunity to see their new powerful laptop, the Asus Zenbook Pro Duo. You can watch our first impressions of the laptop here.
The dual 4K screens and the powerful innards that make this beast tick caught our eyes from the first impression.
We are now in September and we got another limited time with the device. In this video, Martin Githinji unboxes the Asus Zenbook Pro Duo and gives his hands on review of the new device.
As a refresher, the Zenbook Pro Duo is one of the high end laptops from Asus and it screams premium from the specifications list. There are two 4K screens on this laptop: the main 15 inch 3840 x 2160 OLED screen and the secondary 3840 x 1100 display. Asus has built in software to let you use the two displays quite effectively and it is a multitasking dream.
The keyboard has been pushed down thanks to the secondary screen and the touchpad is at the side, like their Zephyrus line of laptops.
The laptop is pretty powerful too There is an 8 core Intel Core i9 Processor (9980HK), 32GB of RAM and a 1TB PCIe SSD. It also has a powerful NVIDIA RTX 2060 graphics card, which is not the most powerful GPU NVIDIA makes for laptops but it is pretty potent.
There is an infra red camera for Windows Hello logins. The laptop has the next generation Wi-Fi 6 for fast WiFi connectivity and features Bluetooth 5.0. The Asus Zenbook Pro has a 71Wh battery pack, which is quite big but noting its internals, it won’t last that long compared to an ultrabook.
For ports, you have 2 USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports, one USB C Thunderbolt port that you can use to connect a host of things, a standard HDMI 2.0 port, a headphone jack and of course the power port. Interesting enough, there is no SD or microSD card reader.
