Reviews for the Asus ZenBook Duo UX481FL-BM039R

80% ASUS ZenBook Duo UX481 review: Can dual displays work in a smaller package?
Source: Hardware Zone English
Overall, the ZenBook Duo is something of a flawed genius. The packaging is clever, the performance and build quality are good, and the pricing is attractive. However, it does have some serious shortcomings that can be a dealbreaker for some people ― namely the less than ideal keyboard and trackpad positioning and layout. But if you can overlook these shortcomings, the ZenBook Duo represents good value for money and its dual displays are genuinely helpful.

75% Asus ZenBook Duo UX481FL review (Core i7, Nvidia MX250) – the dual-screen ultrabook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The ZenBook Duo UX481FL is a mixed bag. One one hand you're drawn in by the dual-screen form factor, but its major selling points are actually the large battery, the smooth performance and thermals, the good quality panels and the capable speakers. On the other, ergonomics suffer with this kind of design, so the notebook is both thicker and heavier than other options, but also difficult to use anywhere but on a desk, as well as fairly expensive for what it is.

Review – ASUS ZenBook Duo UX481F
Source: NLT English
I just have to say – I love the entire idea of a strip of screen like the ScreenPad Plus. It’s functional and applicable for a variety of different use case scenarios. It’s great to have companies creating a product like this – it’s different, but not too different.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.5 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


82.75%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
