Asus Zenbook Duo 2024 review: The Remarkable Dual-Screen Laptop Experience

Because of its dual screen, the most recent model of the Asus Zenbook Duo 2024 is perfect for creating content. With the additional screen, you may increase the size of your workspace without sacrificing the full-size keyboard. It’s the best of both worlds. In terms of principle, it is identical to the Lenovo Yoga Book 9i, however, it is more powerful and larger. Additionally, it has passed the MIL-STD-810H durability test, indicating that it is more than capable of withstanding life’s daily rigors. Its weight is also reasonable, especially in comparison to other potent 2-in-1s. Although we find the design a bit too angular, this is still a rather decent laptop all around.

Work all day with the Asus Zenbook Duo 2024

Additionally, it has a longer built-in battery life, lasting up to 15 hours when the battery is low, and a reliable eight to twelve hours when used in a mixed manner during the workday. Batteries can be quickly depleted by demanding applications like 3D modeling and video rendering. The computer comes with a basic charger, which is the lightest and smallest 65-watt adapter I have ever seen, which is wonderful.

The Lenovo keyboard only has a half-height keyboard and uses the screen as a mouse pad; in contrast, the full-size keyboard includes both a keyboard and a separate mouse pad. Because the keyboard portion of the Zenbook Duo folds up, it is heavier and thicker overall.

Asus’ keyboard solution has clear advantages. You know where you have the keyboard, and a real mouse pad gives much better mouse control. Everything about the keyboard feels like any quality laptop to work on and use. There’s even plenty of travel in the well-built keys, for a laptop anyway, and you can activate backlighting in the keyboard.

The only thing I miss is the fingerprint reader, but you can log in with IR-supported facial recognition, a separate camera that sits next to a well-approved 1080p webcam. As the Zenbook Duo is equipped with Intel’s new Core Ultra processor, Core Ultra 7 155H to be exact, it has access to inbuilt NPU and the new AI features that elevate the quality and function of the webcam, automatic background blurring, eye contact filter, and dynamic framing of your face. You also get smart noise cancelation for the microphone.

Asus Zenbook Duo 2024: Most tasks can be handled by the CPU

There’s a noticeable boost in performance from previous generations of Intel processors, not least thanks to integrated Arc graphics that give it plenty of computing power in many programs, and even make it possible to play simple games. As long as you stick to one screen, set it to 1080p mode, and don’t have high frame rate requirements.

But no, that’s not the purpose of the computer, but flexibility, productivity, and creativity are paramount. The ways you can fold and set up the computer are many. On its side like a folded-up book, flat on the table to work with the included active stylus, or upright with two screens at the height and the keyboard in front. The only thing missing for full flexibility is the 360-degree flip screen. You can’t set it up as a double photo frame.

The computer performs quickly, but it doesn’t become too hot or have strong cooling. The fans are loudest when they are in performance mode, which is a feature that can be enabled in the My Asus management software, but even then, they are only moderately loud. Even with the fans turned off, the computer is not silent. One can hear the unmistakable clicking and whirring of the electronics, which may irritate some.

Smooth inking experience with the Asus Zenbook Duo 2024

When you utilize the appropriate sketching application to take advantage of the pen’s superb pressure sensitivity, tilt, and comfortable grip, it may become very professional. Additionally, a variety of pen tips with varying levels of paper feel are included. The pen requires a USB-C charge to pair with Bluetooth. As opposed to the smooth keyboard, which when in place charges and connects with a surface.

Excellent for creating many types of video, this computer has complete OLED contrast and dynamics, high-quality screens, 1800p resolution, and SRGB modes. If I can afford it, I could easily grow addicted to setting up the Zenbook Duo and editing videos on two screens.

The price of the PC is $1,499.99. Though it’s not exactly an affordable option, if you’re an ambitious artist who doesn’t feel the need to optimize weight, it’s rather reasonable for what you receive and well worth the money. If you purchase it straight from Asus, a useful backpack is included. There’s also always a basic carrying case in the bundle. Additionally, there is an attachment for the pen, which is not attached to the computer and therefore runs the danger of being misplaced.
