At Computex, ASUS today announced the ZenBook Pro Duo, a powerful laptop which comes with a full-width secondary 32:9 aspect-ratio touchscreen (3840 x 1100) that works seamlessly with the main display. It allows consumers enjoy the benefits of dual-screen computing in a single device. Consumers can also manage tasks on the main display while using the secondary display for extra toolbars, multiple cross-references and companion apps. This secondary display is called ScreenPad Plus and it is placed directly above the laptop’s keyboard. This laptop is now available for pre-order on Amazon. The laptop will be shipping on September 6th.

The ZenBook Pro Duo contains a 15.6 ” 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) OLED HDR screen with a 14 ” 4K (3840 x 2160) ScreenPad Plus, is powered by a 9th Gen Intel Core processor with eight cores and has NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 ray-tracing graphics. In addition, it is characterized by a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3, NumberPad 2.0, Amazon Alexa voice control and a specific button for turbo cooling.

Here’s how you can use the ScreenPad Plus:

  • You can use ScreenPad Plus just like any standard second display in Windows to display visual content.
