Reviews for the Asus ROG Flow Z13 GZ301VU
Source: Tech Critter
The ROG Flow Z13 is a special product that sits alongside their other gaming laptops. At RM 8,999, it is significantly more expensive than many other entry/mid-tier laptops that have more powerful GPUs for gaming, for example, at the same price you can get a ROG Strix G16 with RTX 4070. However, none of the other similar-priced laptops has the capability of detaching the keyboard and using it as a tablet. While the actual tablet gaming usability remains a question, ultimately, it depends on an individual’s requirements and use cases to justify the need for this device. In short, this is the most powerful Windows tablet money can buy right now.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
