ASUS today revealed their latest gaming flagship laptop in the form of the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15. Like the name implies, the Zephyrus features a 15" screen which can vary in configuration from a 1080p panel ticking at 300 Hz refresh rate, or of a 4K, 60 Hz panel for users that would prefer image quality and pixel real estate for graphical work (both panels cover 100% of the AdobeRGB colorspace). Besides the main screen, however, ASUS has also included a second one, right above the keyboard, which it dubbed ScreenPad Plus: a 14.1-inch 60Hz matte touchscreen (3840 x 1100) that can be angled at 13 degrees so it falls into the user's field of vision whilst simultaneously increasing airflow to the PC.

ASUS is working with game and app developers to increase usefulness of the ScreenPad Plus, with the screen supporting apps such as Twitch and Discord. Actual games integration is another story, with the games having to be programmed specifically for this configuration, which means support will be somewhat limited. ASUS has already announced they are working with Techland so that Dying Light 2 can take advantage of the secondary display.
 
However, being a flagship gaming PC, the cream of the crop in hardware choices come inside, not outside. ASUS has equipped the Zephyrus Duo with Intel's latest 10th gen CPUs alongside NVIDIA's latest RTX Super graphics cards for laptops. The two least expensive configurations ship with the 1080p, 300 Hz panel, and offers two choices: a Core i7-10875H, RTX 2070 Super, 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, and 2 TB of storage (RAID) for $2,999, or hardware list consisting of a Core i9-10980HK, RTX 2080 Super, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and 1 TB of PCIe storage for $3,499.

Another tier above that and you're into the 4K, 60 Hz realm, with this particular Zephyrus Duo featuring a Core i9-10980HK, 32 GB of RAM, 2 TB of storage (RAID), and an RTX 2080 Super for $3,699.99. The 1080p options will be available from June 29th, whilst the 4K version will be available on June 1st.
 
Well these prices are beyond my reach. Prices have really jumped this year for laptops.

    Just buy a separate monitor for $150 that supports mini HDMI and USB power (plenty out there) and save yourself a good $1,500 for some freakish looking mutant laptop lol.

    It's a good use of that funky space between the keypad and the screen on gaming laptops.

    Functionally, sure, but not for that price premium.
