Reviews for the Asus ZenBook Pro 14 UX480FD

Asus ZenBook Pro UX580 and UX480 First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Asus knows that it will grab headlines and eyeballs with the ScreenPad, but we fear that real-world use will prove to be a bit complicated. A secondary Users will especially struggle with when to use it like a touchscreen as opposed to a trackpad. A lot will also depend on software makers, and wide support is not guaranteed, considering that this isn't an industry standard. We'll have much more detail when we get to use and live with the new ZenBook Pro models over a longer period of time. If and when Asus launches them in India, we'll have a full, detailed review.

First looks: ASUS’ new ZenBook Pro laptops have a 5.5-inch screen as their trackpad
Source: Hardware Zone English
ASUS’ new ZenBook Pro 14 and 15 have two screens each, and that’s not even due to some new-fangled design in the style of the company’s Project Precog concept PC. Instead, the 5.5-inch trackpads on the laptops serve double duty as touchscreen IPS displays, and they’re meant to improve your ability to multi-task.
