Reviews for the Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED UX8402ZA
Asus has retained the dual-screen concept with the new Zenbook Pro 14 Duo that features a fast 120 Hz OLED display and a new Alder Lake H processor from Intel. Optionally, there are also models with dedicated GeForce RTX graphics cards, but our test device only comes with the integrated GPU.
The Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED offers an interesting alternative take on a standard laptop. The secondary ScreenPad Plus has its uses, but also creates some significant compromises -- notably the loss of a wrist rest, touchpad issues, and significant battery drain. If you can make good use of the second screen, those compromises may be acceptable. However, this probably isn't a device for mainstream users.

The Asus ZenBook Pro 14 Duo OLED has a plethora of high-end features, from a dazzling OLED screen to the high-speed Intel chip. The laptop’s dual-screen design also opens up an endless number of multitasking possibilities, especially if you’re a professional creator. However, the poor battery life and cramped keyboard are big sacrifices for those dual-screen delights.

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.
