ASUS ZenBook Duo 14 UX482 vs ASUS ZenBook Duo UX481 – what are the differences?

ASUS’s ZenBook lineup provides the consumers with flagship business, creativity, and productivity devices, that come with premium and innovative features and build quality that is unmatched. The ZenBook Duo 14 UX482 is a thin and light productivity laptop that has dual displays, which increases your working space and improves your workflow.

The smaller dimensions and weight go a long way for making the device a great one for carrying around. Today we are here to talk about its predecessor and tell what is different and if the new one is worth the extra cash that you will be spending.

Starting off with the design, both devices have an identical design that uses a magnesium-aluminum alloy, which provides the needed structural support and durability. The body is CNC milled from a single block of metal, meaning that the metal hasn’t been welded together, further improving the rigidity.

The design itself is what you would expect from a business, creativity, and productivity device. It’s got a glossy with an off-centered ASUS logo. The lid implements ASUS’ ErgoLift, which gives the device that extra help with cooling, lifting the base so that the fans have more room to breathe. It weighs 1.57 kg, which is slightly heavier than on the previous laptop, and has a profile of 17.3mm, 2mm thinner than the previous ZenBook Duo 14.

The displays on both devices are on paper, identical, sporting the same size of 14 inches, the Full HD resolution, and the IPS matrix. The panels have 100% coverage of the sRGB color gamut, which is ideal for designers and productivity people. The secondary 12.6-inch ScreenPad Plus, on both devices, has a resolution of Full HD and the same 100% color coverage.

Overall the real difference comes in the specifications, where ASUS has replaced the 10th Gen Intel CPUs with the newest Tiger Lake options. The most powerful option is the Core i7-1165G7 and for the base model, you get the i5-1135G7, where the previous one had the i7-10510U and the i5-10210U.

On the GPU front, you get the Iris Xe Graphics G7 in two variants depending on if you get the i5 or the i7 model. The MX450 from NVIDIA is there as well, but the Xe Graphics is plenty powerful, however, the MX450 is still an upgrade over the MX250 that was in the ZenBook Duo 14 UX481.
