When we reviewed the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581, we noted how useful the dual-screen experience can be despite the laptop itself having some quirks. Two years later, at CES 2021, Asus is offering a refreshed ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 featuring Intel Comet Lake-H and NVIDIA Ampere mobile graphics.

The ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 offers Core i7-10870H and Core i9-10980HK choices along with an RTX 3070 Mobile GPU. Buyers can configure the device with up to 32 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of NVMe storage.

The main USP of the ZenBook Pro Duo is the dual-screen setup that allows for enhanced multitasking. One of our gripes with the previous generation was the use of an IPS panel for the ScreenPad while the main OLED touch panel itself was pretty good. It looks like Asus will continue to offer an IPS ScreenPad this year as well. Asus has improved the ScreenPad's functionality by adding dedicated controls for Adobe apps.

Both the 15-inch primary display and the 14-inch ScreenPad Plus are UHD panels. Asus said the OLED panel is Pantone-validated and can cover 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. We expect Asus would have ironed some of the inconveniences with the previous generation of the ScreenPad. In any case, we will be knowing more once we have the device on our hands.

Other include Wi-Fi 6, 2x Thunderbolt 3 ports, a Harmon Kardon-certified audio system, and an 8-cell 92 WHr battery.

The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX582 will be available from April in North America. Pricing information will be disclosed at a later date.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
