    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.

            Linus for the I9 did you run into overheating issues?
            Mine died like .... 30 mins in or so. Basically had to go back to the store and get a new one, but they only had the i7 at the time.
            Was running updates and installing crap at the same time.

            Heard from the employees after the fact in the store that they noticed the temp getting high during updates, but bottom line i still want the i9, just want to make sure if theres a better way i need to do things.

            In the end, it could just be faulty, but still blame myself in a way. Tried to do what its supposed to be able to do. Who am i to believe in such fantasys lol.

            Any info will help, thank you

                        i would like to have a 2 screen laptop that has no keyboard and trackpad. i will always have my own keyboard and mouse!
                        Maybe you could buy extending gear like a trackpad with mouse attached with magnets like the ramp for the keyboard, but it wouldnt be attached to the laptop.

                          can anyone tell me why do they use the nvidia geforce instead of nvida quadro for this zenbook duo pro ? I mean it's kinda design for designers and editors right ?

                              i just got this laptop (i7 config) for video editing and I absolutely love it, but, I haven't owned a laptop for the past 10 years so when i see the cpu hitting 85-100c during rendering (1080p60fps), is this safe for a laptop? I have a i7 9700k desktop and it dosen't go above 78c when I edit/game. I have done some web browsing and i've seen some say it should sit around 70-80c under full load and some say 90-100c is safe. Would be nice to know i'm not slowly but quickly killing the cpu.

                                during rendering (especially for laptops) its pretty normal for thin high performance laptops (or in this case, dual screened laptops) to hit 90 to 100 degrees.

                                  This thing puts productivity at a whole new level. Got my ZenBook Pro Duo i9 at the Microsoft Store in Atlanta on Oct 5. This thing is unbelievably amazing. You simply have to experience using it to appreciate what it can do.

                                    "glossy screen"... from the looks of it the screen has a protective cover over the display which, in my opinion, is a good thing for touch screens. So... does it have a glass or some other kind of cover over the top display to make cleaning of fingerprints easier?

                                                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.

Always comparison to shapple...where is the original point of view? Where is the creative point? I hate Apple well. Really? 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...
