ASUS adds a second laptop screen for gamers

NEWS – A few years back Apple added the Touch Bar to some of their laptops, an attempt to give users more input space.  Other manufacturers have been looking to improve upon Apple’s idea — not a difficult task, as the Touch Bar is a rather lackluster feature — sometimes by adding second screens.  One of the more interesting second screen options was ASUS’ ZenBook Duo UX481. ASUS recently announced an even better version of their laptop, one aimed at gamers:  the ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 GX550.  The second screen has a skinny 3840 x 1100 resolution, and it raises up to a slight angle, making it easier to see and improving airflow.  Why would a gamer need a second screen?  Many professional streamers need some way to check Twitch chat, Discord, or other social media platforms to connect with their audience while playing.  While it would almost always be better to use a second monitor for this purpose if a streamer were severely space-constrained or on the road, this would be better a lot better than nothing.  With a starting price tag of $2999, the Duo 15 GX550 is anything but cheap, but if you need it, you need it.
