Reviewing Asus' Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED (2023) laptop, specifically the UX8402 with Intel's 13th Gen Core i9 and RTX 4050 GPU. With its slick dual display design and beefy performance, is the Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED the best notebook for editing and creative tasks? It's certainly powerful enough to cope with any apps and even some pretty heavy gaming, running the likes of Returnal with a smooth frame rate. Asus' cooling tech keeps the Zenbook Pro 14 Duo 2023 from overheating under pressure, while the battery life is also decent considering the double displays. That main screen is a 14.5-inch OLED panel, which can faithfully reproduce colours and pump out eye pleasing HDR visuals. Underneath is a smaller 12.7-inch IPS screen with anti-glare coating.

The Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo is a device that seems to be an outcome of this quest.

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact.
In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
