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 version
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 version
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 version
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.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» 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 on 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.


There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
