Getting a Notebook PC that is good for both work and play is never an easy decision, especially when you consider the different kinds of models available in the market nowadays.

Unlike in the past where price tags alone are enough to indicate the qualities of computers, consumers today would have to run extensive research before investing their bucks – because most laptops now have clear-cut designs to suit specific niches.

Some people may still prefer processing their photos, videos and other documents on large displays in their personal zones, but there are also others who prefer to do it while being on-the-go. For those falling in the latter category, you’d definitely want something that is both portable but also powerful enough to do your biddings.

Consider, if you may, ASUS’s latest ZenBook series – the Pro Duo, which may be highly interactive to creative works other than being capable of processing highly defined media files, and the Duo, for those looking at a lighter and more portable version of the other.

These two new models were recently launched by ASUS premium partner in Brunei CF King Enterprise, and are available for public viewing at the 24th Consumer Fair in the International Convention Centre (ICC).

The Pro Duo came with a 15-inch display, with a 14-inch ScreenPad Plus attached to it, which allows creative professionals to adjust the parameters of their files conveniently through the touch of their fingers.

The Pro Duo’s processing power is echoed through its high-performing eight-core i9 processor, which is also boosted by its high-end graphic processing NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060.

The Duo, on the other hand, featured a 14-inch display with a 12.6-inch ScreenPad Plus. It is equipped with a 9th generation Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 – which also provides sufficient power for those looking to process media files on-the-go.

In addition to the two new models, CF King also brought in the ScreenPad 2.0 – an update to the revolutionary input device to ZenBook 13, 14, 15, Edition 30 and Flip 15, as well as VivoBook S14 and S15.

ASUS also revealed the ZenScreen Touch, a slim and light portable monitor designed for mobile productivity, creativity and entertainment – which can also be used as a drawing tablet besides being your secondary display.

The screen weighed about 0.9 kg, measured about 9mm slim and featured a 10-point touch screen that supports swipe, scroll, drag and pinch gestures.

Additionally, the screen is also powered by a 7800mAh battery and rich connectivity with hybrid-signal USB-C and micro-HDMI ports.

All of these new lineups are currently being displayed at the 24th Consumer Fair along with other ASUS flagship machines including its Republic of Gamers (ROG) series. Customers can also get their RAMs updated on the spot.

In conjunction with the fair, CF King is also running a promotion that gives customers a chance to win prizes with every purchase of ASUS products including laptops, all-in-one computers and ROG Phone II.

Top 20 winners for the draw will be announced this Sunday at 5.30 pm.
