Concluding Words:

ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 laptop is best for content creators, video editors etc. The second screen is very helpful. This is the first useful dual-screen laptop. But this perfect looking machine comes with many flaws as well. Starting from extra weight, battery life to cramped keyboard and yet expensive. Also, this laptop doesn’t have a webcam, which is considered an important functionality in this COVID time.

MSI GS 66 can still be considered as a better choice with similar specs. But that doesn’t mean this laptop is worthless. This laptop has got its own unique identity along with powerful specs. Zephyrus Duo 15 laptop has some seriously innovative technology and its one of a kind. It is expensive because of its premium features. If the price is not a matter of concern then this laptop might be the best laptop for content creators.
