ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15: Dual-screen Gaming Bliss
Source: Unbox English
ASUS has refined its dual-screen laptop concept, and the result is very different from what we’ve seen from anyone else this year. Despite its quirks, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 is incredibly well-executed and brings the idea of dual-screen gaming rigs to the gaming space where it’s more appreciated. It is incredibly expensive though, but to be fair, the company has thrown in quite a lot of freebies to sweeten the package. People with deep pockets looking for something different might find the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 to their liking, even without the enticing freebies.

Source: The Verge English
Overall, the Zephyrus Duo 15 is a capable gaming laptop. But the 60Hz screen on this configuration limits the capabilities of its chips. (And let’s be honest: while Asus may be trying to market this laptop to content creators, it’s a Zephyrus, and most people will be buying it for games.)

Bells, whistles and everything in between –– the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 has it all. The $3,999 stunner has everything you want in a gaming laptop and some things you didn’t know you needed. For starters, you’ve got the dual-screen setup, which Asus has wisely upgraded by incorporating its AAS cooling system into the mix and allowing the secondary screen to raise, making it easier for gamers to quickly glance down and keep track of the action.
