Asus Zephyrus Duo Right View Techronicle

Today we are going to review the Second Generation Asus Zephyrus Duo.
I think we can agree the main complaint about the first version of this Asus Laptopwas that screen up against the keyboard was kind of hard to see it was a little off axis and that's hard for any display and then light would reflect off of it and you know it was a matte finish and everything but that was the problem with it.

So boom with this new version they have solved that problem very efficiently, so this is basically a sequel and they've built an actually pretty simple hinge that every time you open the laptop the second screen also rises up out of the laptop and tilts towards you a bit for improved visibility and it works and it's a sturdy hinge too so since it's still a 4k touch screen still has a matte finish it just is that much more likely that you'll actually use it now that you can actually see it more and you don't have to strain your neck to look down at that screen so it's smart design.

Whats New?

This all new Asus Zephyrus Duo has now an bonus, a little bit of air can flow through the back there for cooling which is nice and there's also the speakers down the secondary screen and then yeah all the same stuff that we saw in the first version of this beast but all are now upgraded,We already talked about how awesome it is to have a dual screen computer that of course applies to this one again too.
It's like the touch bar on steroids, All the multitasking capabilities but also keep in mind there are still all the weird quirks that come from this unconventional form factor too.

Like the fact that there's no palm rest built into the laptop from the keyboard being pushed so far down like the tiny mouse pad if you actually use it without a mouse now the power plug is also kind of in a weird place in the middle of the left hand side which I thought was curious and the battery life also still takes a hit since obviously you're powering two 4k screens now instead of one it is a 90 watt battery but you'll notice the battery depleting much more quickly if you have brightness up on both screens like I usually do but hey i'm happy to see Asus really doubling down on this concept that was already pretty sweet in the first version and really working to improve it and this new laptop

Specification Highlights

Asus Zephyrus Duo Specifications Techronicle

  • This New Duo also has great specs, an 2.4GHz Intel Core i9 10980HK Processor, an unlocked 8-core CPU.
  • It has an RTX 2080 Super Max-Q 32GB of RAM, Solid-State Storage.
  • It's definitely a capable machine and they're not shy about what it is capable of but i think the coolest part is that Asus is listening and is making stuff like this and I think possibly the most telling part about how they expect you to use this laptop is in the ports layout.
  • Power plug is on the left hand side that's along with the Microphone and Headphone jacks.
  • Two full-size USB and one USB type-c on the right-hand side and then in the middle of the back there's USB Ethernet and HDMI which is pretty perfect if you're going to use it as a desktop replacement that's the type of stuff you'd run down the back your desk while attaching the whole thing to a monitor.
