ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo offers largest secondary touchscreen yet

Touch Bar on steroids!

Without a doubt, having a single display on a laptop doesn’t cut it anymore for ASUS. After showing off what they can do with two separate displays on a notebook last year, ASUS now offers the new ZenBook Pro Duo (UX581), which is the company’s biggest effort yet.

It’s special for its ScreenPad Plus, a secondary 14-inch 4K touchscreen found between the 15.6-inch 4K OLED HDR display and keyboard. It can be treated like an extension of the primary screen or a hub for the ScreenXpert software, which delivers an array of handy apps and tools.


Of course, this combination requires a lot of power, and the ZenBook Pro Duo has that. It’s equipped with Intel’s 9th-generation Core processors, up to 32GB of memory and 1TB of SSD storage, and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 GPU.

There’s definitely no space wasted on this machine. The main display owns a frameless four-sided NanoEdge design while the touchpad doubles as a virtual numpad. Connectivity is plenty as well, with two USB-A, one USB-C with Thunderbolt 3, audio port, full-size HDMI, and even Wi-Fi 6.

For those needing something a little more compact, the ZenBook Duo (UX481) is available, too. It features a 14-inch Full HD NanoEdge display complemented by a 12.6-inch Full HD ScreenPad Plus. As for power, there’s a 9th-generation Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 to serve you.

Excited to try these out yourself? You’ll have to wait a little longer as pricing and availability haven’t been been announced for each region yet.

Computex 2019 was full of products, from known brands all around the world, down to startups — which were all found at InnoVEX. We roamed around TWTC (Taipei World Trade Center) to find interesting startup products that would entice regular consumers and we found this portable device.

Paperang S2 is the second iteration of the device. Just like what they stand for, their products don’t use ink and instead rely on thermal printing and wear-resistant thermal paper. What’s improved is the 300dpi printing (in contrast to the S1’s less clear 200dpi). You can print your selfies, favorite photos, create simple texts and banners, and even add more designs before printing, all within the app.

Pantone accessories are here to complement your style!

We want ’em all!

Over the years, Pantone has grown as an authority and standard for colors. What was once a color guide for designers has become a part of contemporary culture. As people started identifying themselves through Pantone’s colored chips, manufacturers capitalized on this trend by incorporating Pantone into their products.

Through Pantone Universe licensing, manufacturers can apply Pantone’s branding and popular design. I’ve seen different applications, mostly on fashion and lifestyle accessories, but seeing it on computer peripherals and other electronics is a total treat.


Originally manufactured by DataPlus Supplies Inc., this Taiwanese company sells Pantone-licensed accessories that you’ll definitely buy to match your style.

For instance, they sell gaming accessories in different shades of blue. One of their best-looking is the teal-colored one, as it deviates from the usual blue and black combination used by gamers in their gaming setups.

You can also make a statement using these Pantone-colored USB fans and speakers when you’re traveling, especially in hot and humid countries. Fabulous, right?

For those who want to stay connected, stay away from the usual white and black power banks and get a Pantone-colored unit! There’s a rare chance of losing it compared to when you use a more generic power bank. And oh, they also have wireless chargers!

If you truly embrace Pantone’s branding, there’s a bag carrying the color guide’s popular design.

Lastly, there’s a whole line of computer accessories and electronics waiting for you. Pantone really found its way into our lives and yes, we want all of them!
