Great for on the go photo editing
I bought this as a on the go option for doing editing in Photoshop and I love the flexibility to switch between mouse and pen. Keep in mind there are two versions of this unit, one with a pen and one without. Given the cost of the pen by itself, I went for the version WITH the pen included.
The laptop weighs in a bit heavier compared to the ultrabook range from ASUS, however lighter than their ROG laptops, despite packing a 2GB graphics card on board. Response time is excellent, and the dual screens work well when editing and drawing as you c...an use one for a reference, and the second for the actual work. It features full sized HDMI and USB ports on the side, which means no fiddling around with adaptors, but it also has the flexibilit of a USB C connector if you decide to pair it with a USB C dock or hub. The device isn't powered via USB C unfortunately, so even if you are combining this with the ASUS Slimdock Pro, you will still need to provide power for the unit. Screen resolution and brightness are great, it has a nice sharp picture, and the 14" size is a nice midpoint for those on the move. Keyboard is backlit, and when the lid is opened, the laptop lifts and pivots up at a nice ergonomic angle. The following two features would bump this to 5 star - make the screen flippable, when writing on the screen, you feel a bit wary about applying too much pressure on the hinge. If the screen could be flipped around like the Asus Zenbook 360 series, this would alleviate this concern, secondly, there is absolutely no where to store or keep your pen. Competing models in the Lenovo and Acer series have slots for your pen, and even the Wacom screens have a little fabric clip on the side to slide your pen into. ASUS does not give you any option to store the pen, so you can either purchase a holder, or carry it with the laptop and hope you don't lose it. Overall, I like this laptop, however there are some improvements I'd like to see in new generations, namely the two points I mentioned above, and the possibility of a lighter unit. Great little power house regardless though for those that need a bit of kick for graphic work, and want to multitask with multiple screens.
ASUS ZenBook Duo UX481FL
As an engineer and designer my main reason to purchase this is only due to having first ever notebook with dual screen as I always using double monitor. Beside this i7 10th Generation Intel processor with16 GB memory and 1TB SSD storage are fantastic.
The only weakness: 2 GB graphic card absolutely is not enough for such an excellent configuration . I believe this notebook will satisfy my needs.
Great dual screen display though the second screen is a little low in brightness.
Easy to use and operate.
Mouse could be improved.
The need to write a review to receive the cashback offered by the salesmen from Harvey Norman is disappointing and the terms had not been explained at all.
ZenBook Duo in carrying ScreenPad Plus, let the laptop built-in has the function of double screen, it is a creation, in addition to the more big points on the handling, using the ASUS stylus at the same time, make note or drawing manuscript is super convenient, and the development of a web page, can write Code while preview picture more, though the double screen in editing the film or retouching, is a very easy thing, but the CPU choice, suggest or to choose the level of Core i7 processor, will be more smooth,With the ASUS ZenBook Duo, you can enjoy dual-screen convenience even when you're out and about.
this is an amazing Product
Looked long and hard for a laptop that was unique, easy to use and im really use to Multitasking on multiple screens so this is a perfect unit. Its strong, easy to use and even keyboard being at the bottom of the screen. it still doesnt hinder the use of the keys.
Great value for price
Awesome laptop with lots of features, the dual screen is very useful for multi tasking the movement between the two screens is seamless, build quality feels really quite nice, displays are vibrant and full of color, sound quality is very clear, overall performs very well. Only disappointment is the model I purchased did not come with a stylus, I wasn't aware that some did not come with one as the store did not mention this in their listing and I one purchased without.
