14 + 12.6 inch dual screen interaction: ASUS releases ZenBook Duo (UX481) design book
At this CES 2020 exhibition, ASUS brought a very unique dual-screen notebook-ZenBook Duo (UX481), which adopted a dual-screen solution and integrated a highly interactive secondary screen, which was the previous ZenBook Pro Duo “Little Brother”.
The exterior design remains the same, the body is thin and light, measuring 323 x 223 x 19.9mm and weighing 1.5 kg. When the screen is opened, the body will naturally lift up, improving the comfort of the keyboard and helping to ventilate and dissipate heat.
The biggest highlight is that it is equipped with dual screens. In addition to a 14-inch 1080p (optional touch screen) main screen, there is a 12.6-inch 32: 9 full-width full-color screen located above the keyboard. It supports ASUS ScreenPad Plus interactive technology, supports touch, and can Split screen display, let various applications be displayed here, as much as possible to make the main screen more focused. This solution is like adding an auxiliary control panel, which can expand the main screen picture, and can also quickly switch to use when multitasking. This solution will be very practical for some design users.
In addition, it has a backlit keyboard, integrated touchpad and left and right buttons on the right, an array microphone and HD camera on the top, and Harman Kardon speakers.
Due to its positioning, the internal configuration has been downgraded, but it can still meet the needs of most users. Specifically, it is equipped with Intel’s 10th generation Core i5-10210U / Core i7-10510U processor, up to 16GB LPDDR3-2133MHz memory, and provides 256GB / 512GB / 1TB PCIe SSD solid-state hard drive. In addition to the nuclear display, it is also equipped with NVIDIA GeForce MX250 Alone.
In addition, it supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0, and comes with a 70Wh large capacity battery (the battery life is unknown). The expansion on both sides is very rich, including: USB 3.2 Type-C, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, HDMI, card reader and 3.5mm headset jack.
Asus ZenBook Duo (UX481) dual-screen book is scheduled to go on sale in the first quarter of this year. The price has not been announced yet, but its elder brother ZenBook Pro Duo is known to sell for up to $ 2,500 (approximately $ 17,300). I hope it can reach $ 10,000 Within, students in the design field can pay attention.
