Options include either 14-inch or 15.6-inch 4K glossy touch screens (yes, this laptop is created to be touched pretty much anywhere).
Are you a techie who knows how to write? It comes with a 15.6-inch 4K UHD display that the company claims offers excellent color reproduction-132 percent coverage of the sRGB color space and 100 percent of Adobe RGB. It says support in other apps is now in development, so it'll definitely be fascinating to see if ASUS can transform the ScreenPad from a exhausted gimmick to something that's actually beneficial to workflow.
The second screen (called "ScreenPad") on the Zenbook Pro 15 draws many comparisons to the touchpad bar on Apple's MacBook Pro series.
Another useful ScreenPad app is an extension for Google Chrome that lets you control YouTube videos that are playing in the browser, and even switch them to the ScreenPad to watch while you work on the main display. Now have some PR.
The Asus Zenbook Pro, unveiled today at the Computex trade show, has a 5.5-inch touchscreen that looks like it's been taken straight from a smartphone inserted where you normally find the touchpad on a laptop. ZenBook Pro 14 also comes with a discrete GPU, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 Max-Q card.
Meanwhile, as the name suggests, the ZenBook Pro family includes "professional powerhouses" with up to 8th Gen Intel Core i9 inside, GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics, 1TB SSDs, gigabit-class Wi-Fi connectivity and Thunderbolt 3 ports.
TOUCH ME! TOUCH ME! is probably what the Asus' latest ZenBook would scream as it has replaced the ultraportable's touchpad with a 5.5in touchscreen, because why the hell not. The ZenBook 15 Pro with ScreenPad also features ASUS' ultra-slim NanoEdge bezels for an immersive 83% screen-to-body ratio. In concert with the hexa-core processor are a blistering fast up to 1TB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD and up to 16GB of high-performance 2400MHz DDR4 RAM to provide compelling performance previously unseen for thin and light laptops effortless loading or transferring large files, datasets, and game levels. Thanks to its 'ErgoLift Hinge, ' the laptop's screen lifts upward by more than a full inch to better meet you at eye level. ZenBook S features Amazon Alexa support for easy voice-controlled assistance. This has led ASUS to develop the ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad, containing a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display that is more responsive and is adaptable to a variety of tasks, while retaining support for Microsoft Precision Touchpad (PTP) and up to four finger gestures.
Asus also cosied up to Microsoft to work on integrating the Office suite with the ScreenPad so that Word, PowerPoint and Excel shortcuts work on it, while it's also said to sport controls for apps like Spotify.
As per a report by Gizmodo, if you were to be playing music on your laptop, you could quite easily see a visualizer pop up on the screen pad.
As if the Zenbook 15 wasn't enough, Asus also revealed their dual-screen AI Precog laptop.
