If you’re looking for a versatile machine that can fit both your work and play needs, then the ROG Flow X13(GV301) would be your pick, as efficiency and convertibility are the two main selling points of this compact performer.
Running up to an AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS in the Supernova Edition, the laptop offers a lot more than you need, be it for gaming or multi-tasking through all your work projects. The convertible design features a 360° hinge that allows you to flip the screen into four different modes: Laptop Mode, Stand Mode, Tablet Mode and Tent Mode. Players can select any Mode to optimize their needs from illustrating on Tablet Mode to watching your favourite shows on Tent Mode.
All that is packed into 13-inch of greatness that is 15.8mm thin and only 1.3 kg. In addition, the ROG Flow X13 comes with the ROG XG Mobile for true gaming portability, with an external graphics card that features the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 but only taking up 6% of the usual eGPU’s size.
One might foresee that such a versatile machine must have a drawback with its battery or heat dissipation but ROG has it all figured out. The laptop allows you to run up to 10 hours of video playback with a 50% fast charge in 30 mins using its compact USB Type-C cable. Fine-tuning its new self-cleaning cooling system with a redesigned thermal module that features liquid metal compound and arc flow fans, it enables top lasting performance.
With a 4K touchscreen and Panton Validated colours, content creators can now draw, edit, flip through tabs or scroll pages all you want on the configurable and intuitive display. What makes this laptop stand out is its 16:10 aspect ratio which you don’t see very often. For users who’d love the extra vertical space for multitasking, along with ROG Flow X13’s fast and versatile system, this might be a call out to you.
