    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?

      Is there any laptops with as good of speakers and mics as the MacBook Pro line? But PC... I have been asking around and no one seems to have great insight. This seems to win that segment but maybe I am misinformed

      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)

          I personally prefer the second screen flat :)

          Although it's obviously not a tablet, you can still draw on this thing, so it's necessary to have a display that lays flat

                  Perfect for developers(IDE/Terminals/Console at the 2nd bottom screen). Good for Nomad Programmers who always travel, better than macbook pro cause of the specs.

                        dude fl studio with this would be killer. have the mixer channels on that bottom screen and let the magic happen on the main screen.

                          One of those features that are only implemented for the wow factor rather than something useful.

                          So nice review, the secondary screen is a great idea but the viewing angle is not that good, imagine for multi-tasking refering that secondary display after few hours I think it can give a good neck pain. I support the idea of rearranging the view angle, and it can be achieved, perhaps, by a lifting mechanism for the secondary display that is operated by the main lifting mechanism, and they could increasr bottom bezel to compensate the screen obstruction the secondary display may createo

                                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
