    is the main display matte or glossy? depending on source(including asus website, where on it and in one place it says glossy whereas on the same webpage it also says matte main display), it indicates one or the other. the screenpad plus is matte and that seems consistent across any source i've checked.

      There are two versions, from what I know. At the time of this review, the main screen was matte and non-touch, but in the meantime I think they've replaced it with a glossy touch screen. ScreenPad is matte and touch on all versions.

    I bought mine mid-September 2020 and both screens are touch-enabled but still matte finish. I'm not sure if it was because I bought the 16gb/1 TB version, but highly doubtful. It also came with a stylus, leatherette sleeve, and an attachable stand to improve the viewing angle on the second screen.

    HI. I had a question more than a comment: i bought the UX481F because of the dual screens. It kind of bothers my eyes after a while because the top screen displays content at a larger size and for the lower screen you have to constantly bend over to read clearly. So i bought an IOGEAR docking station to plug it to two large monitors for when I`m at home. The problem is the Asus does not recognize it even after I downloaded the driver. And after reading some more, I now realize the USB C 10 port does not support displays. So i don`t know what to do. What docking station would you recommend in order to connect to two outside monitors?

      Hi. That's a bummer, but as far as I can tell you can't drive two external monitors with this laptop, just a single one, via HDMI. That's because the USB-C port is data only on this laptop.

    Andrei, thank you for reply. What if i buy a splitter to get 2 hdmi ports out of the laptop? Would that work? Would it recongnize the two monitors as separate with 2 diff images on on them?

      I don't have any experience with those, so idk if that would work. Just get one from a place that allows returns and give it a try, maybe it works, or you can just return otherwise.
