Built as an improvement upon the Zenbook Pro Duo and the Zenbook Fold 17, the newest iteration of the dual-screen Zenbook, simply named Zenbook Duo, comes as a solution to fix both the Pro Duo’s small display and the fragility of the Zenbook Fold’s flexible screen.

This time, Asus has chosen to go simple and instead added a separate, second display under the keyboard. This not only makes the laptop have more screen real estate but also makes it more durable and affordable.

Still, however, the laptop is a far cry from being cheap, as Asus has crammed top-of-the-line tech into this portable powerhouse of a machine. Read below for more details.

Asus Zenbook Duo 2024 Overview

Design

As far as the design of this laptop goes, this one is certainly a head-turner. The Zenbook Duo 2024 comes in an entirely metal build. The magnesium alloy chassis has a matte finish with a monotone color throughout. The only thing breaking the color is the oversized Asus logo on the lid and the ‘ASUS Zenbook’ written on the top corner.

Opening up the laptop, you’ll find the narrow bezel displays protected by glass. The top display bezel houses the FHD webcam whereas the bottom display, after you remove the detachable keyboard, houses the pogo pins for connecting the keyboard. There is also a Zenbook logo printed on the bottom chin of the upper display.

With a laptop like this, you would expect the company to put in a gimmicky or plain bad keyboard. But Asus has included a proper backlit keyboard that has 1.4mm key travel along with a touchpad and a palm rest for comfortable typing. The keyboard is also made out of the same magnesium alloy as the rest of the laptop.

On the sides, the Zenbook Duo 2024 comes with your usual selection of ports and vents. And, finally, to prop the lower screen up and orient the laptop vertically, the company has included a solid metal kickstand under the Zenbook Duo 2024.

Display

This version of the Asus Zenbook Duo features two OLED panels with a resolution of 2880×1800 pixels. The panels support stylus input and have a glossy finish, giving them a premium look. Both panels have a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and an impressive pixel response time of 0.2ms.

With a maximum brightness of 400 nits, content is readable easily in a brightly lit room but may be difficult under bright sunlight. The panels can reach up to 500 nits of brightness when displaying HDR content. With 100% DCI-P3 color coverage and Pantone validation, the Zenbook Duo 2024 is great for graphic designing and colorwork.

One last feature of the new Zenbook Duo 2024 is the inclusion of an FHD camera with an IR sensor in the bezel. This means that the camera supports the Windows Hello biometric authentication feature.

Hardware and Connectivity

This variant of the Zenbook Duo comes equipped with a super fast Intel Core Ultra 9 185H processor. The whopping 16-core processor runs at a maximum clock speed of 5.1 GHz with the ability to process up to 22 threads of operations. Accompanying the Core Ultra CPU is a fairly powerful Intel Arc discrete graphics processor and an Intel AI Boost neural processing engine (NPU).

Asus has fitted the Zenbook Duo with a whopping 32GB of LPDDR5X RAM and a 2TB M.2 NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD. This ensures that you’ll have plenty of memory whenever you need it while working.

For connectivity, the laptop comes with a 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1 type-A port, 2x Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 1x HDMI 2.1 TMDS port, and a 1x 3.5mm combo audio jack.

One thing to mention is the cooling Asus has implemented in the Zenbook Duo. Because the part where the keyboard’s normally supposed to be, there is no path for the heat to dissipate normally. Meaning, that the OLED display would get really hot after prolonged use.

To combat this, Asus has added a heat spreader and Graphene sheets between the motherboard and the OLED panel as part of the cooling system. This allows the CPU and GPU to run at up to a 35W combined TDP, without throttling as per Asus’s claims.

Battery

The Asus Zenbook Duo 2024 comes with a fairly large 75Wh Li-ion battery. The 4-cell battery pack is arranged in a 4S1P formation. Asus claims the battery can provide power for up to 8 hours on a single charge.

Charging the battery is a USB Type-C power supply that can charge the battery at a rate of up to 65W. Asus also claims that the adapter can charge the battery up to 60% in just 49 minutes.
