The ASUS ZenBook Pro 14 Duo is a laptop with a midrange price that offers impressive features like a high-resolution OLED touchscreen display which makes it great for creators who require true-to-life colors and crisp visuals. It has a substantial amount of memory and a potent main processor, suitable for demanding engineering tasks and creative work. With a dual screen, it can enhance productivity but could lead to shorter battery life and greater weight, making it less ideal for on-the-go use. It includes ample ports, including Thunderbolt, for connectivity, and is marketed as being well-built, with top-notch keyboard quality. Despite not being targeted as a gaming laptop, its graphics capabilities can handle intensive gaming. This laptop runs on Windows 11 Home and was released in June 2022, offering a combination of performance and creative versatility that is hard to find in more portable laptops. Give Feedback

Dominic Bayley | December 2022
"The Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED is a well-tuned instrument for content creators, excelling at a range of general office tasks as well as tasks that require a little more grunt like encoding and 3D rendering. The big attraction is the laptop’s dual displays. They’re the best ones we’ve used in an Asus Zenbook Duo laptop to date with a spate of year-on-year improvements that make the visuals more striking and the cross-screen integration easier than ever before."
