Next-gen ScreenPad Plus
Multitask like a pro with the next-generation ScreenPad Plus with AAS Ultra in Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED. The 12.7-inch, full-width secondary touchscreen supports the latest high-precision styluses, such as ASUS Pen 2.0, included in the box. This nifty secondary display allows efficient and more comfortable workflow for nitty-gritty operations, such as image touch-ups, digital calligraphy, animation, and graphic design. It also allows more seamless productivity-related tasks such as notetaking during virtual meetings or taking down creative ideas during brainstorming sessions. The multiuse AAS Ultra also raises the rear of ScreenPad Plus and tilts it by 12 degrees when the laptop is opened, creating a seamless and optimized viewing angle for easy cross-screen operation.
The ASUS ScreenPad Plus is now made even better with the new ScreenXpert 3 software to make creative workflows more efficient and seamless. With this upgrade, the built-in apps, such as App Switcher and App Navigator, can now be used with external displays, such as the ASUS Zenscreen and ASUS ProArt. ScreenXpert 3 also has a Control Panel feature that allows control of various Adobe application tools. Giving a more precise and intuitive creation and editing experience, users can manipulate brush size, saturation, opacity, and the like with Dial, Button, Slider, and Scroll controls. Control Panel is fully customizable and works with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom Classic, Premiere Pro, and After Effects — and more compatible apps on the way.
In addition, users get free three months Adobe Creative Cloud subscription for every purchase of Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED. More details about this partnership can be found from this website.
