The second screen is half the height of the main display, but it stretches across the full width of the ZenBook Pro Duo's body. It can be used either as a full second display by dragging apps to it, or as a dedicated dock for things like video previews, timeline controls, code windows, or audio mixing panels. It also makes a good surface for drawing with the included stylus.
