ZenBook Pro Duo Highlights ASUS' Expanded Laptop Range With Dual 4K Displays
Asus is at Computex 2019 and is celebrating three decades of new products at the show with some limited-edition devices. ASUS is showing off the ZenBook Edition 30 (UX334FL) notebook that has up to 8th generation Intel Core i7 quad-core CPUs, NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics, 16GB of RAM, PCIe SSDs, and gigabit class WiFi. The display on the machine is a four-sided frameless NanoEdge unit with a 95% screen-to-body ratio, and it has ScreenPad 2.0 that integrates a secondary screen into the machine.
The ZenBook Pro Duo (UX581) has up to 9th Gen Intel Core processors, up to 32GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, up to 1TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs, WiFi 6 with Gig+, and Thunderbolt 3. The machine has a 4K UHD OLED main display and a 4K ScreenPad Plus secondary display. The ZenBook Duo (UX481) is aimed at creative professionals looking for a smaller second-screen form-factor thanks to its 14-inch screen, and smaller chassis with the same ScreenPad Plus features that the ZenBook Pro Duo offers.
