The lowdown on RAM and the ASUS ZenBook Duo

Sadly, it's not possible to upgrade the RAM in the ASUS ZenBook Duo. This is likely because the complicated hardware under the hood that keeps the secondary screen in working order is too sensitive for users to be tinkering near. However, since the device comes with a lot of RAM out of the box, it's unlikely many people would want to upgrade it. You get 16GB with the ASUS ZenBook Duo, which is more than enough for pretty much any task or activity you'll be doing with a laptop.

The ASUS ZenBook Duo is one of the most interesting laptops out today, as it has a unique secondary screen located above the keyboard. This screen is touch-enabled (a stylus is included in the box), so you can use it to highlight things, jot down notes, and more. You can keep tabs and programs separate from the main display running on the second screen as well, which essentially allows you to create a "dual monitor" setup with the device. The laptop itself also packs some competent hardware between its RAM, its NVIDIA MX250 GPU, and its Intel 10th Gen i7-10510U processor. With hardware like this, the device can be used for every work task imaginable, and can even handle some light gaming. The 10th Gen Intel CPU also allows the laptop to be used with Wi-Fi 6, the latest standard of Wi-Fi that bolsters connection speed and stability.

Physically, the device is great too. It weighs just 3.3 pounds (1.5 kg), so it's easy to carry around with you on the go, and the bezels around both of the screens are thin as well, which is always a plus. The ASUS ZenBook Duo also comes with an excellent selection of ports for peripherals, including two USB-A 3.1 slots and one USB-C 3.1 slot (not Thunderbolt 3).
