    This is by far the best implementation of a double screen we've seen. If the bottom panel could tilt up a bit, I think this thing would a lot better. Do you want to see more devices with double displays like this?

      Hi, If there is an option to open up a completely different page on the second screen, wouldn't that stop a hacker from seeing that second screen?

      Is it worthy for programming? If not can you please suggest another?

      This laptop aint for you Dave, you need your normal pube-gaming laptop filled with RGB and tacky plastic-symbols and schemes that you often adore and think are sick and looks wicked and get your juices going.
      this laptop is a daytrader & stocktraders wet dream and from here, Asus nailed it from a first attempt..really like what they are doing and it is perfect that it is a tone down powerfull laptop as most laptop with potent specs, looks idiotic to an adult with all this pube-bling and RGB dragons and crap.
      Keep going down this path Asus.. without a doubt the most interesting laptop i have seen for many years, though I just went for a Porsche Book, though obvious not as a workstation, more like a extreme big 13.3" 500nits 3200x1800 7mm thunderbolt3 windows10 pro tablet with Wacom stylus but as a daily workstation this Pro Duo is ideal.. could have all my 3 secondary screen below with tradeticker, newsfeed, stockdeepths and keep the main screen for an complete stockqoute-marketoverview.(amazing laptop Asus, well done)

      What angle can you open the main display to? Can you get a good viewing angle on both screens by raising the rear edge of the laptop and using external peripherals?

    HEY DAVE!!

    I'm upgrading in December, leaving Mac for Windows, which also means im leaving final cut for DaVinci. What's your recommendation? right now im looking at the Zephrus S GX531 with an RTX 2080 but this seems like a great option too. What's your choice between the Zephrus?

        Got mine a few days ago. It's everything all the reviews say it is. Just a total beast of an incredible machine.

        Ridiculously fast (goes from cold power-on to desktop in 12 seconds, and that includes face-recognition login), TOTALLY quiet 99% of the time, the second screen is immensely useful (although I find that Basta ZMover is a must-have for maximizing its usefulness), the main screen is the most beautiful I've ever seen (even beats my Dell XPS 15) with absolutely the most vivid colors (especially red!), etc. etc.

        The viewing angle on the lower half-screen is an issue, but not for me because for my laptops, I've been using an INNOMAX X-stand for years. It raises the back of the laptop, so that the whole keyboard is angled. As a plus, it makes the lower screen a lot more viewable.

        My dream laptop. Dreams do come true.

                        I am going to buy a new gaming laptop in December and want something that is going to replace my AMD gaming PC. This keeps coming to mind, even at $2500-3000. But now I just saw your review of that Helios. So what would you get if you did have the money? This or the Helios, or something else? And outside of gaming, I am a programmer where the second screen would really come in handy

                            I’m considering getting the Duo, not the pro one, for the specs and gimmick I think it’s a pretty good deal for 2,200 AUD. I never use laptop touch screens and I don’t need 4k, is there any other differences apart from the specs?

                              I went into the ASUS shop and tried it. Did not see any problem with the viewing angles, at least not enough to have it mentioned multiple times.. O well.

                                  I think as a concept artist who constantly have to split my screen into 2 to fit in reference and a drawing application this will help tremendously 0_0. Sometimes i even use 3 application just because i wanna watch a video will i draw and looking at references. Ill wait till its cheaper 😂

                                    I have it... Don't buy it. The audio is so low you can't watch a movie on it.. Even sitting directly in front of it... Sending it back.. sadly...I don't know why no reviewer seems to recognize how flawed it is...

                                      Not much of a functionality of this additional feature ( screen) , except burn a bigger hole in my pocket book.

                                        I want to buy this laptop, but very worried about the OLED panel. Paying 3000$ to get a burn-in after 1 year :-/. Also on Asus official page they say about the OLED panel :" this is normal behavior for OLED panels" . They don't even give warranty for it. Do you still suggest to buy laptops with oled panels?

                                          Some people report that its max. 2hrs on a battery with only ONE OLED SCREEN TURNED ON ! Can you please confirm or comment on that ? That would be ridiculous to pay US$ 2.5 thousands not be able to use it at the airplane, or at the uni/college and taking notes. ps. also seems like this laptop does not have a camera but nobody commented on it... Thank you for your feedback

                                                  The screen is 100% DCI-p3 rated which is a huge deal.

                                                                                Hello! In fact, I was just about to buy it as a Gaming Laptop.. I know that a Asus ROG is actually better with a 140Hz IPS Screen... but, in fact, I Play mmo-rpg and I think I don’t Need a high refresh rate or 140 Hz (better for shooters ?). The Second screen of the pro Duo could be usefull for quest helping Websites or.. you See what I mean.
                                                                                So if you had, for the same price, the Choice between Asus Zenbook pro Duo (15,3“) or the Asus ROG Zephyrus S gx502gx to Play FF14, Wow... which one would you choose?
