Zenbook Duo 14 (UX482)

I wasn’t sure where to start a topic about this fabulous device, since it doesn’t really fit into any of the Windows device categories in the forum.

I got the Zenbook Duo 14 (UX482) a couple of months ago to replace my 13" HP ENVY x360 convertible laptop. While the HP ENVY x360 is a fantastic little machine, I wanted to do away with my desktop setup and get one Windows machine for both desktop and portable use. I wanted two displays for extended desktop and I didn’t want to have to use a portable monitor.

I wanted the Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED (UX8402) with the i9 processor and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, but I couldn’t pull the trigger. I can’t justify the over $2k price tag. I snatched up the Zenbook Duo 14 (UX482) for $949 on sale.

It came with a pen. Both displays are pen enabled. The upper display quality is noticeably better, but the lower display is serviceable.

Having a secondary display permanently available without having to deal with accessories is a game changer. It improves my mobile workflow and is adequate for when I work at my desk at home. It’s been the perfect work and on the go machine for me so far.

I’m starting this topic to create a thread to discuss this device since I didn’t see one in existence yet. If you have any question about it, throw them my way.

One of the few devices that has me excited. Just can’t find one to try out in Japan.

Seems like this one is a better fit for the Convertibles category. I added a picture to the OP so it stands out a bit more in the list of latest topics.

How are you enjoying the keyboard? I almost bought that laptop a few years back (an older model) but I disliked how the keyboard and trackpad felt. Also the model back then, the bottom screen was just flat and didn’t raise up and I found it hard to view given the angle and dimmer brightness.

The raising up of the secondary screen is definitely a necessity.

Regarding the keyboard, I like it! The keys feel nice to me. I enjoy the typing experience. It didn’t take too long for me to get used to the unusual placement of the keyboard and trackpad. Now that I’m used to it, I prefer where the trackpad is on this laptop compared to the typical centered placement of a trackpad.
