Asus has been doing this dual-screen form factor for a while, and parts of the $1,999.99-and -up ZenBook Pro Duo 14 OLED are nothing we haven’t seen before. Like previous models in the Duo line, there’s a big 14.5-inch screen on the top and a smaller 12.7-inch screen on the back of the keyboard deck (the ScreenPad Plus). Below that screen is the keyboard (reaching all the way to the front of said deck), with a teensy touchpad crammed to its right.But the company has made a small tweak that has made the experience significantly more comfortable: it has raised the secondary screen by 12 degrees. It’s intuitive with a remarkably easy learning curve, which has not always been the case with ScreenXpert software.There’s a taskbar (like a floating miniature Windows taskbar) with quick buttons for various features like toggling brightness, phone mirroring, opening an app navigation screen, locking the keyboard, and making all the windows on the ScreenPad disappear to display the desktop background. Basically, the Pro Duo 14 has convinced me that even the best possible iteration of the dual-screen form factor isn’t enough to overcome the fact that I can’t stand having a keyboard in this position. But there are absolutely people who don’t have this issue, and for you folks, I think this is legitimately a good buy.In the Pro Duo 14, Asus has done everything it possibly could to make a good, practical, usable dual-screen system. But we started counting exactly how many times you have to hit “agree” to use devices when we review them since these are agreements most people don’t read and definitely can’t negotiate.As with other Windows computers, the Asus Zenbook Pro Duo 14 OLED presents you with multiple things to agree to or decline upon setup.The mandatory policies, for which an agreement is required, are:In addition, there is a slew of optional things to agree to:That’s six mandatory agreements and 14 optional ones.
