Asus’ new laptop screen looks like it’s been ripped from a Duo laptop

The Asus ProArt Display PA147CDV is a 14-inch touch screen designed to act as a secondary screen for the creative. With its small form factor and ultra-wide 32: 9 aspect ratio, it looks like Asus has torn the secondary screen of one of its Duo laptops and turned it into an external monitor.

The PA147CDV was technically announced in September last year, but Asus is currently showing it at the NAB 2022 show in Las Vegas and announcing plans to release the screen in Q2 2022 in North America at a price that has not yet been announced.

With its support for Microsoft’s Pen Protocol 2.0 and a built-in dial designed to mimic the functionality of Microsoft’s Surface Dial, the Asus launches the PA147CDV as an accessory for creatives looking for a little extra screen property without investing in a large second screen or touchscreen tablet. Hopefully it will be priced smaller than competing screens with larger screen sizes.

The PA147CDV has a 14-inch 1920 x 550 IPS touch screen and is equipped with an HDMI port and two USB-C ports. Its stand makes it possible to orient it horizontally or vertically.

In addition to the PA147CDV, Asus is also showcasing a few extra screens later this year. The ProArt Display OLED PA32DC 31.5-inch 3840 x 2160 display, which was unveiled in September last year, is scheduled for release in North America in the 3rd quarter. It is joined by the ProArt Display PA348CGV, an ultra-wide 1440p display with a 120Hz refresh rate that was announced back at CES 2022. We will update this piece if and when Asus returns to us about pricing.
