In the third year running, ASUS maintains its belief in their ScreenPad Plus display. Having implemented it into their ROG range, it’s time to bring a timely refresh to the original hardware which was released back in 2019.
Naturally, with two screens packed into the new ASUS ZenBook Duo UX482, concessions have to be made especially when it comes to the layout of the laptop as a whole. However, if you’re an Adobe creative suite user this is probably one of the first hardware stops to check out especially if you’re looking to be mobile.
The ASUS ZenBook Duo UX482 features a new ScreenPad Plus workflow, the additional display automatically opens up to a dashboard full of dials and toggles. Fully customizable, the dashboard allows creatives to quickly access tweaks such as zoom, brightness, and contrast via sliders, buttons, and dials. At present, the function supports Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, and Lightroom Classic.
The ASUS ZenBook Duo 14 UX482 is out now and starting from S$2,598 on the ASUS Online Store, the ASUS Exclusive Store @ Bugis Junction and authorised retailers.
