ASUS ZenBook DUO First Look – The Era of Dual Screen Laptops Is Now Beginning


At the recent CES 2024 event held in Las Vegas, ASUS has launched a series of new laptops that use new processing chips launched by AMD and Intel.

One of the more unique laptop models that was shown at the CES event, and will be brought to Malaysia soon is the ASUS ZenBook DUO, their latest dual screen laptop that comes with two displays that fill the surface of the laptop.


Technically, it can be said that ASUS is among the pioneers of the concept of using two screens on one device with their previous laptops such as the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo which comes with a second screen that can be used for additional menu purposes on productivity software, giving users more plenty of space on the main display.

With the ASUS ZenBook DUO, ASUS now has the first full-fledged dual-screen laptop in the mainstream, making the Project Precog computer first introduced in 2018 a reality.

ASUS ZenBook DUO comes with two 14-inch OLED screen displays with a resolution of 2880 x 1800 at a display ratio of 16:10, a refresh rate of 120Hz and also a display brightness value of 500 nits that can process 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut.

Like another dual-screen laptop, the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i, this laptop also features a Bluetooth keyboard that can be detached or installed on top of the second screen display and used as a traditional laptop.

In terms of plug options, this laptop is loaded with one USB 3.2 Type-A plug, two Thunderbolt 4 plugs that can be used as power plugs, one HDMI 2.1 TMDS plug and one 3.5mm audio plug.

What is more interesting about this laptop is that it comes with a design that is not only light, but also thin. With a weight of 1.65kg and a device thickness of 20mm when closed, this ASUS ZenBook DUO is a laptop that can be carried anywhere with ease.

The dual-screen design of the ASUS ZenBook DUO can also be used in various ways, depending on your needs at the time. Just want to use one screen? The Bluetooth keyboard can be placed above the bottom screen.

Want a taller screen? This laptop can be placed vertically on its side, and the display will change according to the set orientation. Want to use both screens horizontally? No problem there either.

One thing we noticed on this laptop too is that if it is closed without placing the keyboard on top of the second display, a large space can be shown which will be covered by the keyboard.


ASUS ZenBook Duo is also among the laptops that will arrive on the market later that use Intel's 14th generation Meteor Lake processing chip. In fact, for the local market, it has been confirmed that ASUS will bring in two models powered by Intel Core Ultra 7 155H and Intel Core Ultra 9 185H processing chips with 32GB of DDR5 memory and 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD storage.

In terms of graphics processing chip, ASUS ZenBook DUO is seen to come with a built-in Intel Arc graphics chip, which is a more powerful graphics chip compared to the previous offering, but also comes with efficiency in terms of power consumption to ensure that this laptop comes with a longer battery life .

One uniqueness that can be obtained from the use of this Intel Meteor Lake processing chip is that if you look at the Task Manager software, it is the presence of the NPU function. It is a core used specifically to process artificial intelligence tasks such as Co-Pilot and various types of similar processes, especially for artificial intelligence tasks that require a processor in the device.

In the meantime, the offer of 32GB DDR5 memory on this laptop is also not a coincidence. Microsoft has recently released a statement that a computer needs to be equipped with 16GB of memory to make the most of the CoPilot software.


ASUS ZenBook DUO is among the first laptops to come out using ASUS Malaysia has told us that the two ASUS ZenBook DUO model offerings, consisting of Intel Core Ultra 9 and Intel Core Ultra 7 will enter the local market in February at a starting price of RM9999.
