ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo Review: The Notebook Of Tomorrow Isn’t For Everyone
Source: Unbox English
The ZenBook Pro Duo definitely has a lot of things going for it. Its primary display is big, beautiful and a joy to work on, and the secondary display gives content creators extra space to work on. Multi-taskers will probably love the expanded workspace. Unfortunately, the laptop of the future has a few flaws, chief of which is practicality. You’ll be spending quite a bit for the luxury of that extra screen, with the model we reviewed priced at Php 169,995. The Core i9 variant is even higher, at Php 199,995. You can buy a pretty decent and powerful notebook and a secondary screen with a chunk of change left over. That’s not to say that ZenBook Pro Duo is useless, it’s just that it’s difficult to recommend it to the general population in its current form.

Model: The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 and as well as the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX481 are interesting series for me. Reason for that is, that they have a second screen. It may sound like MacBook models with Touchbar, but we are not talking about a basic stripe bar here, we are talking about a real second screen. In this model has an additional 14-inch screen.

Innovation is good, but what about usability? This is the first question that comes to my mind. I think it kinda makes sense for business laptops. Think about this: you are working on a report and you need extra information from different files and you are on the go. Open them on the second screen while you are working, easy! For a gaming laptop? While you are stationary I don't see the real value. Considering the fact that this model comes with an RTX 2060, you will most likely have to be connected to an outlet all the time while playing. A second integrated screen vs. an external monitor is open to discussion. I would prefer the latter not just because of comfort, but also from the price point.

ZenBook Pro Duo models have a wide range of configs with different options. But they are not cheap. This model for instance, costs more than 3.000 USD. When you consider the degrading of regular laptops (anything except Macbooks in this case), it is highly likely this model will lose its value by at least 20 % next year. With 600 USD, you can buy a great monitor.

I can not criticize the concept, because it is something new. Maybe there will be a limited production. Other than that, there is literally nothing to question about hardware. Because it provides almost everything that is top notch right now. RTX GPU, latest 9th generation processor, Thunderbolt, WiFi 6. The question is, how much these components would cost without the second integrated monitor? Well, the answer is out there. From the recent notebooks I checked, I can say something in between 2.000 to 2.500 USD. So, the extra monitor is not coming cheap.

There is another aspect, which is weight. The Asus ZenBook Pro Duo UX581GV-H2002T weighs around 2.5 kg. I believe it would be very close to 2 kg without the extra monitor.

It is hard for me to make a suggestion. It will be really a hit and miss. Because for me, the second screen will barely have a usage while it will not be even in my view point. I have to lean in closely to see what is going on in the second screen and also while doing something, having something else moving would distract me. Of course you can disable the second screen, but then it will be an expensive disabled screen. So, it is how you call it. If you see the fit to your needs. Go ahead.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
