The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 is an upper midrange laptop featuring a high-resolution OLED touchscreen which offers vibrant colors and detailed images, making it suitable for creative professionals. With an Intel i9 processor and Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti GPU, it provides excellent performance for 3D rendering, machine learning, and engineering tasks. The sizable storage and RAM will support intensive multitasking and large projects. The dual-screen design increases productivity but decreases portability; at over 5 pounds, it's less convenient to carry around. With around 7 hours of battery life, you'll likely need to bring the charger for longer work sessions. The build quality is top-notch, and features like a backlit keyboard and Thunderbolt ports enhance its usability. However, keep in mind the price is higher for this combination of features and performance. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Engineering & Design:
4.7
The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 excels in engineering and design due to its powerful Intel i9-12900H processor and Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, alongside a generous RAM capacity, ensuring swift multitasking and handling of complex software.
Content Creation:
4.7
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.
General Use:
4.6
The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo 15 excels in general use thanks to its powerful Intel i9 processor and an ample 32GB of RAM, ensuring swift multitasking and seamless productivity. The OLED screen delivers excellent visual clarity with its high resolution and color accuracy, though the solid build and high-end features lead to a tradeoff in portability and moderate battery life.
Software Development:
4.6
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.
General Use Screen Quality:
4.6
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.
Gaming & AI:
4.4
PerfectRec’s Gaming and AI Score strongly emphasizes graphics processing capability as well as AI performance, while also taking into account other factors that impact suitability for gaming and AI work.

PCWorld

Jared Newman | August 2021
"Benchmarks aside, the Asus ZenBook Pro Duo is hard to compare with other PCs. Its closest competition may be a multi-monitor desktop, or a laptop with an attached travel monitor. The Pro Duo is more portable and versatile than either of those options, especially with the software tools Asus has thrown on top. For a certain niche of artists, media creators, and gamers, all that might add up to something special, even if it’s unattainable for the rest of us."
