    The ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo is a high-performance laptop with two screens! That’s right, a secondary display above the keyboard offers more screen real estate than we’ve ever seen on a mobile workstation or gaming laptop.

    It looks cool.... but that bottom screen is sitting right over the cpu and the gpu which means it wont last long.

    Just to re-emphasize--these designs are stupid; they are basically easily portable desktops. You HAVE to use them on a desk.

    Lol. You can't use this on your lap. It's useless. Also, re: your apple snark... my laptop has a touchbar with some functionality, and now my ipad works with it as a second pen display. It's funcationally way, way better than this janky nonsense.

    I like the background music at the end. Linus should let the editor make his own videos. He is a great speaker.

But you treated with Respect, not the Fuji camera, I wonder what Fuji in Japan will say if I decide to send that video to them? I'm still waiting....

    If the second screen can be tilted up a bit, After all, when the monitor is horizontal, the vision is poor.The top of the second screen is just to the bottom of the main screen when it is raised, so the vision will be better, and the lower part can also be made into a heat dissipation area

      Nyancat703 not really. Another 10 degrees (where MacBooks tend to hover when doing much of anything) is where you start having real issues.

Is there only one computer company in the world? This drives me crazy. Whats wrong with world? Why we have only comparison to Apple products. This isnt funny...

    nah can't see apple taking risks anymore.... taken over by bean counters who will only spend development money on a sure investment for maximum profit.... good bye innovation... good bye edgy design... goodbye game changing potential at least Jobs got it all to a stage where things work they way they do.

    I do wish 4:3 screen ratios made a comeback in laptops. You get a bigger screen without increasing the size of the laptop in any realistically noticeable way. At the very least, make 3:2 the new standard. These taller screens are ideal for anyone who deals with verticality... programmers, writers, spreadsheet experts... and the only 'downside' is that you get black bars at the top and bottom of videos, which you get with cinematic videos anyway, and it doesn't seem to bother anyone.

    I own this laptop. Something people should know, and which doesn't seem to get mentioned in reviews, is that the Screenpad+, the thing that you're paying all the extra money for, disconnects every time you close the lid of your laptop, or it otherwise goes into sleep mode. This results in all open windows and application panels being shuffled back to your main display, erasing any panel layouts for Adobe CS products or other software. You have to rearrange your displays *every time you re-open the lid of your laptop*. ASUS engineers have informed me that this is expected behavior and there is no plan to fix it. I wish I had known this before purchasing mine.

    Yea theres no chance "the market is going in this direction" because a second screen is such a massive gimmick for the average user, im sure a few might make a novelty one for the upper end graphics pros... but for normal users? no chance they're buying that.
