Reviews for the Asus ZenBook Duo UX481FL

82.7% Like The Apple Touch Bar, But Better: Asus ZenBook Duo UX481 Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Asus wants to prove that there are other ways to innovate besides just creating the thinnest laptops year after year. The ScreenPad Plus display is both practical and invaluable when at its best, but it entails some ergonomic drawbacks.
60% Asus Zenbook Duo UX481 review: Innovation that comes at a cost
Source: It Pro English
Asus has pushed boundaries with the UX481, and there are areas where this machine succeeds. The primary screen offers good quality for sRGB work, and the lower panel is useful for secondary apps. The Asus has smart looks, solid performance and superb battery life. In key areas, though, the daring design means uncomfortable compromise. The cramped keyboard and trackpad can’t compare to Dell and Apple’s offerings, and the Asus is thicker and heavier than rivals. If you’re going to use the secondary screen, then you may be able to accept these issues. If it’s not going to be integral to your work, though, conventional laptops remain better.

81% ASUS ZenBook Duo review: A dual-screen ultraportable with compromises
Source: Engadget English
The ZenBook Duo is a solid attempt at delivering a dual-screen ultraportable. Using both screens is intuitive, and it can be genuinely practical for multitasking. But ASUS had to make compromises to fit those screens, especially when it comes to the keyboard and trackpad. It’s also heavier and thicker than any other ultraportable.

Asus ZenBook Duo review: A dual-screen ultraportable with compromises
Source: Engadget English
If you're considering the ZenBook Duo, the real question you need to ask yourself is how much do you really need two screens on a $1,499 ultraportable. ASUS did a decent job of fitting in a second display, but it leads to plenty of compromises.

70% Asus Zenbook Duo Review: Two Screens, Too Many Compromises
Source: The Verge English
But if you’re looking specifically for a two-screen device, this one works. It’s more than a party trick; it’s useful and there are cool things you can do. But I think the form factor is better suited to a workstation (like the ZenBook Pro Duo) which is likely to spend most of its life at a desk with peripherals plugged in. I’m not sure if there’s a way to make a Duo that’s also good at being a portable laptop. If there is, Asus hasn’t quite found it.

70% Asus ZenBook Duo Review

If you’re going to benefit from the second screen – whether it’s in creative applications or just by bumping useful tools downwards – then the Duo is worth considering. If not, then more traditional notebooks remain better due to the number of design compromises Asus has had to make.

80% Asus ZenBook Duo (UX481) review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ZenBook Duo isn't as powerful as the ZenBook Pro Duo, but it delivers nearly all the same functionality at a significantly lower price. As a result, the Duo is a better option for all but the most demanding power users. First, you need to decide if the ZenBook Duo is right for you, or if a more traditional laptop, like the Samsung Galaxy Flex 15 or Lenovo Yoga C940 would be a better fit.

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.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 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).


73.95%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
