Something to look forward to: A dual-screen laptop isn't a completely new idea, but Asus may have perfected the design with its new ZenBook Pro Duo.

The ZenBook Pro Duo also offers great functionality for those doing video editing who want to maximise the available space for content and assets, while moving effects pallets and toolbars to the supplementary screen. The key change here is the addition of the ScreenPad 2.0, an upgraded iteration of the display-embedded touchpad that made its debut on the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 laptop previous year.

With a pair of 2-inch LiveDash OLED displays, the Prime X299 Edition 30 motherboard supports Intel Core X-series chips and contains a built-in 5G chip.

The Asus Prime X299 Edition 30 motherboard is a new product from the Taiwanese manufacturer that comes absolutely bristling with features that will be a feast for an overclocker's eyes.

"In addition to displaying system information, Smart Control Console offers convenient voice and hand-gesture control".

ZenBook Pro Duo is designed for extreme performance to enable effortless creativity.

Sadly no word on precise storage and RAM options, or indeed how much the Pro Duo will cost and where it will be available. The third screen, which doubles as a trackpad and digital number pad, is located to the right of the full-size mechanical and backlit keyboard.

Hasselbaink hopes Sarri took important lessons from that game as he prepares to go in search of major silverware. I don't think that if the defence is not doing our job you would make 70 points.

Will you buy the ZenBook Pro Duo over the MacBook Pro? Spec-wise, the device can be configured with either 9th-gen Intel Core i7 (9750H) or i9 (9980HK) processors (up to 5Ghz Turbo Boost) and 32GB DDR4 RAM.

Laptops can already fold in half, but instead of a screen and a keyboard, the interior of Lenovo's as-yet-unnamed PC features a 13.3-inch OLED display that, when unfolded, transforms the device into a sizable tablet.

The tech company has crafted the software in such a way that the secondary screen can be used as a separate monitor or an extension to the primary display.

To display the most vivid, most realistic colours possible, ZenBook Pro Duo supports an exceptionally wide colour gamut with 100% DCI-P3 coverage and HDR.

The ZenScreen Touch has a 7,800mAh battery, comes with a protective case that folds up into a kickstand, and it also has ASUS trademark hole in the corner that lets you prop the screen up with a pencil in a pinch.

"The latest Intel Wi-Fi 6 with Gig+ (802.11ax) takes wireless speeds to the next level, for supersmooth connections to the world". The smaller variant tops out with an Intel Core i7 processor and GeForce MX250 graphics.

It also comes with ASUS' 5.65-inch Full HD+ ScreenPad 2.0, plus a multitude of ports including USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C, USB Gen2 Type-A, a HDMI port, MicroSD Card reader, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
