ASUS brought the new Lingyao X series high-end notebooks at this CES, respectively 15.6-inch Lingyao X dual-screen Pro and 14-inch Lingyao X dual-screen products. These two products can be said to have their own highlights and excitement, and they also won the CES 2021 Innovation Award. Next, we will check them one by one.
Lingyao X dual-screen Pro innovative dual-screen brings unlimited imagination
From the name, you can see the characteristics of the Lingyao X dual-screen Pro. It uses the ScreenPad™ Plus touch screen. When the lid is opened, the C side will automatically rise to a comfortable tilt angle. The parameters of this secondary screen are still violent, with a resolution of 3840×1100. And a higher brightness of 400 nits, comparable to the main screen resolution of most notebooks.
In terms of design, the seamless interaction experience between the ScreenPad Plus touch screen and the NanoEdge ultra-narrow frame main screen is more comfortable. The new ScreenXpert 2 software includes a series of innovative and optimized built-in applications, which can better support the new ScreenPad Plus touch screen, for example, we can drag content between multiple display windows. The task group application has also been further optimized, so that the user is more clear when browsing a task group, and can start multiple applications with a single click.
This secondary screen can also be a control center with a high degree of freedom. Consumers can customize applications according to their needs. It can also be used in conjunction with applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, Premiere and After Effects. Release more compatible applications, which is more functional than the touchbar on MacBook Pro.
The main screen adopts a 4K OLED HDR NanoEdge touch screen, with four-sided ultra-narrow frame design, up to 93% screen-to-body ratio, and a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, 100% DCI-P3 professional color gamut, TÜV Rhein low blue light eye protection certification, And the display has passed VESA DisplayHDR™ True Black 500 certification and PANTONE color certification, which is amazing in color performance.
