Not everyone will find these useful, but if you can find a good use for the second display, this could be a good machine for you.

The ZenBook Duo 15 is a true premium laptop cut out for professionals looking for portability and performance. The 8 Core Intel Processor is a generation old, but since there is nothing from Intel that comes with 8 Cores and the same performance as the 10980HK, Asus has chosen to use it.

I would have liked to have the AMD Ryzen 5900H but sadly Asus has gone with the Intel Processor. 

Nvidia RTX 3070 is a great GPU and can easily nail anything you can throw at it and is one of the best choices. 

The Laptop has an excellent display (color accurate and OLED) and incredible battery, and excellent build quality.  

The price is high, but it offers a lot more performance than the similarly priced Dell XPS 17.
