ROG Flow Z13 quick review: Device that lets you multi-task
ROG Flow Z13 quick review: If you are looking for a laptop that is much more capable than its size, ASUS ROG Flow Z13 can be a perfect choice. This is because it comes with an RTX 4070 graphics card and H-Series Core i9 processor - which are generally seen in much bigger gaming set-ups. So this device is equipped with handling each and every task you throw at it. The price of this device starts from Rs 1,61,990.
Also, one noticeable thing is that the z13 somehow manages to keep its temperatures down. You won't notice any spikes while multi-tasking and even playing heavy games. While the 0 dB ambient cooling enables silent operation during light tasks, there is no noticeable sound even under full load.
The chassis is made of high-density aluminium alloy and is somewhat resistant to fingerprints, thanks to the anti-fingerprint coating.

While Z13 is not as light as a normal tablet, it is certainly best suited when you really want to travel carefree. It has a big 13.4-inch display that offers a refresh rate of 165Hz and 2560 x 1600 resolution. It delivers sharp details and a good viewing experience. However, you may want a bigger screen at times while playing some games.
Also, the 16:10 aspect ratio display comes with Gorilla Glass 5 protection and offers a peak brightness of 500nits. Moreover, it offers multiple viewing angles with up to 170 degrees of viewability. What enhances your viewing experience is dual smart amp speakers with Hi-Res Audio and Dolby Atmos support.
When it comes to battery, the company is providing a 56Wh (or watt hours) battery that is sufficient to work for around 5 hours, enough to complete your daily tasks while on the move. It also has a 130W Type-C adapter that can juice up the device from zero to 50 per cent in just 30 minutes. So battery backup is something that you need not worry about.
The detachable full-size RGB backlit keyboard has 1.7mm key travel and comes in handy while writing your mail on the go. Also, Z13 has 13MP rear camera and a 5MP IR sensor at the front. While the rear camera is capable of clicking decent images, the front camera does a decent job when it comes to video calls.
