Zenbook Pro laptops have an Office extension screen
The ASUS Zenbook Pro series comes with a snazzy touchpad which doubles as an extension toolbar for Microsoft Office.
Instead of a blank touchpad, it’s a small high-res touchscreen that can display icons or even full videos (play Lawrence of Arabia on a tiny, tiny screen!).
For Microsoft Office it means that mini-toolbars can appear. Not just icons to tap but pull-down menus to choose from, such as color selection.
Will it catch on?
The Mac touchbar hasn’t excited even the Apple zealots but the ASUS screen allows a lot more features and flexibility than the tiny Mac sub-screen.
Perhaps people want to keep their eyes on the one screen rather than flicking between two?
