N-one Nbook Fly, a dual-screen laptop on a budget
The Nbook Fly presents a possible solution for those seeking an affordable dual-screen laptop option. This specific market niche has been catered to by ASUS through their higher-priced ROG Zephyrus Duo and Zenbook Duo systems.
The Nbook comes equipped with dual screens: a larger 16-inch display boasting a 1920×1200 resolution, and a smaller 14-inch screen with a 1920×550 resolution. The secondary screen offers touch input, while information about touch capability for the main screen is absent. Both screens deliver a brightness of up to 300 nits, and although the product description mentions “high sRGB color gamut” coverage, the precise extent is unspecified.
On the hardware front, the system houses an aging 6-core Core i7-10750H processor along with DDR5-2667 MHz memory. Storage details mention a 1TB “2nd gen SSD,” though this term’s significance remains unexplained. In terms of connectivity, the laptop offers a 1 Gbit Ethernet port and support for Wi-Fi AC/Bluetooth 4.2, which differs from newer models featuring 2.5GbE and Wi-Fi AX/Bluetooth 5.
The dimensions of the system are 35.6×24.7×2.8 cm, weighing in at 2.5kg. Its construction features a metal chassis, and it packs a 51 WH battery promising up to 6 hours of usage.
It’s important to note that this system isn’t intended to rival the gaming-centric ROG Zephyrus line, which can carry price tags of $3000 to $4000 USD. ASUS does offer a more budget-friendly alternative in the form of the Zenbook Duo 14, priced around $1100. This alternative includes a newer CPU architecture, better service and software support, and likely more convenient warranty claims. However, the ASUS system comes with half the memory and storage capacity.
Presently, the system is listed at €699/$789.99 with applicable coupons. It’s worth mentioning that this offer is currently restricted to the European Union exclusively.
