                                So does it function as a genuine dual screen in games too, ie: a battle/world map or something on the bottom one while playing on the main one?

                                This laptop seems pretty cool. BUT: Are the Duos also 4 lefthanders? This "Touchpad" on the right would not comfortably for me.

                                            Some people report that its max. 2hrs on a battery with only ONE OLED SCREEN TURNED ON ! Can you please confirm or comment on that ? That would be ridiculous to pay US$ 2.5 thousands not be able to use it at the airplane, or at the uni/college and taking notes. ps. also seems like this laptop does not have a camera but nobody commented on it... Thank you for your feedback

                                                  I kind of disagree with not buying a graphics card that's faster than the refresh rate on your screen just because you can always get an external Monitor and it kind of future proofs your laptop's capability down the road when software/games become more load intensive

                                                      Bad neck position to look at the 2nd screen. Also bad for left handed people. The touchpad is at the right side and should be virtual.

If the battery life holds up, the smaller one would be everything I've ever wanted - it'd be amazing for note taking. I'd be a bit concerned about using that keyboard when I'm in a lecture hall with those tiny foldaway desks, though, but I kind of don't even care. I *want* one!! Maybe in a few years, when the tech's dropped a bit in price (by which time I'll probably be done with uni, but shhh, let me dream)

                                                                                  I'm an architecture student, and digital work consists of about half of my work. I rely on a variety of programs (RhinoCeros, V-Ray, Adobe Illustrator, Revit), all of which are dense programs that interconnect with each other so I tend to have half of my screen split between 2 programs. With the ZenBook, I could possibly have more applications open at a time as I transfer data from main screen to touch screen. Digital drawing with a stylus is another plus, and it would sure make Illustrator easier to use. Along with an advanced mouse, I currently have a Logitech MX Anywhere 2, which has buttons that act as shortcuts, I could easily go about my work and apply specific shortcuts to up to 5 apps at a time, all without having to minimize screen or have to remember what I had on a closed tab. lower keyboard also would work best for me as I like having my arms down at my side, rather than hovering in front of me. This seems like a perfect laptop for anyone who creates digital work using source material or references. Now if only the price could lower a bit, my wallet would greatly appreciate it. Great job ASUS!!!
