Are you a techie who knows how to write?
The Microsoft Windows Experience blog contains a useful rundown of how ScreenPad works in practice. The touchpad or the ScreenPad can be customized with apps and shortcuts, creating what's more of an advanced version of a touchpad.
It's an interactive display with helpful functions, the pad can also function as a controller for music and video, you'll be also able to control Spotify.
If you really want to, you can also use the ScreenPad as an extended desktop for windows and drag any app over there that you want. Now have some PR. Announced today at Computex Taipei, the ZenBook Pro 15 (UX580) and 14 have a 5.5-inch touchpad which doubles as a screen that provides a quick launcher, number pad, media player and app-specific toolbars. ZenBook Pro 14 also comes with a discrete GPU, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX1050 Max-Q card.
Given Asus is the only major Windows laptop maker doing this, along with the rather lacklustre reception to bolstering the functionality of the Touch Bar touchscreen strip on Apple's MacBook Pros, we aren't holding out breath to see if developers rush to get making extensions and integration for the ScreenPad.
The ZenBook 15 Pro with ScreenPad's attractive up to 4K display provides professional-level visuals covering 100% of the Adobe RGB color space and 132% of sRGB, and providing guaranteed color accuracy with a Delta-E (ΔE) color difference of less than 2.0.
Like last year, ASUS didn't debut new ZenFones, though it did show off a collaboration with Intel and Microsoft called Project Precog, the main fruit of which will be a dual-screen laptop with AI-powered features that is supposed to launch next year.
The ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad is built for discerning professionals who need portability without sacrificing performance or style. More than the ScreenPad, the ZenBook Pro 15 features up to an eighth-core i9 processor with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. Then for the VivoBook S13 (S330), this slim 13-inch display notebook has an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics.
If anything, that certainly makes the ZenBook S look distinguished and unique, also helping with rapid heat dissipation to keep those 8th Generation Intel Core processors nice and cool at all times.
Touchpads have always been a staple of laptops since their introduction in 1992 but since then, besides better accuracy and accompanying gesture-based software support, there just hasn't been much innovation.
You can multitask more easily, as the ScreenPad supports a slew of its own apps, or effortlessly and intuitively control various office and entertainment apps on the big screen. Asus is claiming the ZenBook S has an 85 percent screen to body ratio, and that the display will offer 178-degree viewing angles. A ScreenPad software development kit (SDK) will be available in the 3rd quarter of 2018, and interested parties may visit www.asus.com/screenpad-developer for more info.
It is a 5.5-inch full-HD IPS touchscreen. The touchscreen also supports the optional ASUS Pen.
