The overall design of laptops hasn’t really changed that much over the decades since they’ve been around. For the most part, they’re clamshell devices that features a screen on one end, and a keyboard on the other. However, it seems that ASUS is hoping to turn the industry on its head with the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo.
This is because not only does this laptop feature a 4K main display, but the company has also managed to squeeze a secondary 4K display which sits just above the keyboard area. Both of these displays are touch-sensitive, meaning that you can interact with them using your finger or a device like a stylus.
Judging from the images, ASUS is definitely aiming this laptop at creative professionals who might appreciate having a touch-sensitive surface to edit their photos or videos on. In terms of specs, ASUS will allow configurations of up to an Intel Core i9-9980HK processor, as much sa 32GB of RAM, and it will also come with a NVIDIA GForce RTX2060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM.
There is no mention of pricing just yet, but judging by its specs, we doubt that it will come cheap. It is also currently slated for a release in Q3 2019. We should note that ASUS is not the first to come up with the idea of a secondary display in a laptop. A couple of years ago, Razer showed off Project Valerie, a laptop concept which came with a triple display setup.
