Asus was one of the first manufacturers to have a dual-screen laptop in 2019, but the concept was flawed in places. The height of the second screen of the dual-screen notebook we last tested in the form of the Zenbook Pro Duo 2023 was only half the height, and the ergonomics of the keyboard combined with the trackpad on the right side for some users left something to be desired.
