ASUS unveiled the ZenBook Duo 14 at CES 2021. The laptop features ASUS's famous secondary display above its keyboard. The secondary display can be used to run apps, control apps on the main display, and perform all sorts of other functions. It also props up when in use to help keep the laptop cool.

MrMobile dives into detail with the ZenBook Duo, including real-world use, specs, comparing it to other dual-screen devices, and more. We won't spoil the review here, but we will share a quick quote. MrMobile talks about the second screen of the device:

you ask if i will order this laptop? i will wait in april for the 15.6 inches model. and it will be with intel core i9. ux 582. o.k. the ux 482 have the 11 th. gen. but a maximum of intel core i 7. also this model have only regular hd not the 4k resolution. i think the graphic card will be less powerful. the bigger screen is better. of course it will be much more expensive. it a very good idea to wait for this year model, because the screen pad are lift with a angle for a better viewing with the main screen. i compare the price and specification with the mack book pro 16 and i beleive asus is better. none of my devices are apple product. during this wait, i use my asus zenbook pro 15 ux 580 ge with the regular size screen pad,with intel core i 9
