If you need a laptop that excels in multitasking, the Asus ZenBook Duo with its dual-screen setup is a great choice, especially for creative professionals or those who often use multiple applications simultaneously. This unique feature, however, does add to the weight and might impact battery life compared to more traditional laptops. The secondary display can also come in handy for tasks like video editing, coding, or stock trading where additional screen space is beneficial. While this model is powerful, it isn't as portable as thinner, lighter laptops, so frequent travelers might prefer something less bulky. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Portability:
4.4
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
General Use Screen Quality:
4.4
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Battery Life:
4.3
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Build Quality:
4.3
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
General Use:
4.2
The ASUS Zenbook Duo boasts a high-quality CPU and ample RAM ensuring smooth performance for everyday tasks, along with a dual-screen setup that enhances multitasking, and it is designed light and slim, making it easy to carry around. While its screen quality is top-notch for crisp visuals, the trade-off comes in the form of shorter battery life due to its dual displays.
Software Development:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Content Creation:
4.2
PerfectRec’s Content Creation Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for photo editing, and video editing work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
Engineering & Design:
4.1
The ASUS ZenBook Duo is equipped with a high-performance CPU, ample RAM, and a powerful GPU, making it well-suited for demanding engineering and design tasks that require robust processing and graphics capabilities. Additionally, the high-quality screen enhances visual clarity for design work, though this comes with a compromise on portability and potentially more operating noise due to the high-powered components.
Operating Noise:
4.0
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
Keyboard Quality:
3.8
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Gaming & AI:
3.5
The ASUS Zenbook Duo comes with a dedicated GPU that can handle gaming and 3D tasks, but it may not match the performance of specialized gaming laptops, particularly for newer, resource-heavy games. Its unique dual-screen setup enhances productivity with additional screen real estate but the refresh rate might not be as high as gaming-optimized displays leading to less fluid visuals in fast-paced games.

Allen Ngo | May 2020
"The Asus ZenBook Duo's second screen is like the Apple Touch Bar, but better. Most would agree that having two screens instead of one can really boost productivity and the ZenBook Duo is no different in this regard. It's tough going back to just one screen after becoming accustomed to spacious dual-screen setups. For a laptop form factor, however, users will have to accept some compromises. Firstly, weight is the most obvious drawback as the system is several hundred grams heavier than a regular ZenBook 14. Additionally, colors on the second screen will not be as vivid as the main display."
