  • A 2 in 1 with some muscle
    Verified BuyerReviewed by ThreeBs - July 13, 2021

    I love this laptop! Sure you can get more power elsewhere, but the uniqueness of the 2 in 1 design plus some gaming horsepower (with the potential for adding more rendering beef) makes this laptop well worth admission. I mainly use it for cad and pre-viz for live events, and its been tremendously usefull. Being able to flip and show designs and have clients poke and collaborate at will is pretty fantastic. I do reccomend a screen protector if you plan on picking up a stylus though,(I picked up the microsoft surface pen and it works well) and dont put off the little cardboard stand they included in the box, its actually pretty useful.

  • Snappy and Lightweight Laptop in 3 lb package!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by SamuraiSailor - August 28, 2021

    Love the ASUS ROG X13 laptop! It has an 8 core CPU with 120 Hz 13.4" 1920x1200 screen, packed with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB NVME SSD. Love the specs and this laptop rocks! Most of all, it is very portable at just under 3 lbs. The 14" and 15.6" screen laptops are typically much heavier and forget about the portability of a 17" laptop. I can't comment on how well this laptop plays games but it is a great machine for a content creator. Most of the time, I am tethered to an external monitor so having a larger screen is not a factor. One drawback is the internal speakers are not quite loud enough; otherwise, this laptop clearly meets my needs.

  • Next form of Windows laptops (or even, all laptop)
    Reviewed by CJ - May 20, 2021

    1. The look - simply put, there are not many, if any, products that pay attention to the texture of the material. Not the material itself, the texture, that has a strong sense of durability in, that allows day to day wear and tear, that finds the balance between elegancy and practicality. This machine comes with such texture. Discreet yet feels way more premium than just a block of metal. It makes my Zephyrus G14 look stupidly big and toyish, MacBook plain and boring. Put it this way - even if the raw material on the X13 is inferior to some other products, the texture makes up for any inferiority. The keyboard comes with white backlight but has static - breathing - throbbing effect. The keystroke actuates lightly but has firm bottoming feeling. I find the added support for Fn+arrows to realize pgup/dn/home/end stuff very welcoming a change. The rest of the build - stability, flex, durability - are all top tier. Maybe slightly behind MacBook/XPS tier, but not too far. The hinge of the screen seems to be strong enough a design that has been reiterated for many generations, but that only time can tell. 2. The power - CPU wise, AMD killed it. I get to use all the Apps from Office to Premier and I can barely get this little thing worked up, all at the same time drawing 4w power when idled. It's unbelievably strong, and this time all of this powered up with a 100w type-C charger instead of the roundhouse design of a charger brick. The 3050ti sits a tiny bit behind a 1660ti (about 15% less powerful in my tests) in terms of raw power, but has the most substantial support of DLSS. With the RTX structure any game that supports DLSS benefit and I would say, for 1080p gaming, the 3050ti fits nicely in this chassis. On the side note, there are some tweaks that need to be done in order to get the laptop work at higher power on battery. That's also where it becomes incomparable to the M1 MacBook Air in terms of battery life versus power. 3. The versatility (for the future) - with the form factor, the power and the battery life, this laptop easily stands as THE best thin and light laptop to date. The are other worthy opponents but none can beat it righteously from any one of the following aspect: the price, the weight/size, the 2 in 1/touch functionality. The truly exciting aspect about versatility of the X13 is in the future: Ultrabook when on the go, plugged into the XG Mobile it becomes a full on high end gaming rig. It's almost as if Nintendo Switch is on steroids if somehow the XG Mobile is available and stable. As for now, I would HODL, as the XG Mobile still is buggy and the supply is nonexistent. 4. The bad - the screen is decently bad. Not saying 1080p is bad or 120 refresh rate is bad. No. The color is on spot if not too saturated, the viewing angle is IPS level, the grey is grey and the black is black enough. But the response time of this screen. Oh boy. The response of this screen hits the ballpark of 20 to 50 ms and what that means is the ghosting is very, very visible. Played on the puny 13 inch screen, any FPS that has any degree of seriousness would benefit. You will literally see the trail of your gun dragging across the screen, maybe along with the enemy's bullets to your character's head. Also, forget about using it outdoors. 350 nits peak brightness means your own reflection on the fingerprint covered monitor panel is almost always visible in brighter sunlight/light sources. 5. Should I buy it now? No. If you are asking this question because of money, don't buy the X13. There are small sacrifices that you can make to make the best bang of your buck. Zephyrus G14 and G15, the upcoming M16 are all very well balanced for the sake of price, and all are more powerful than X13. Also, considering this is a Windows laptop from ASUS, a price drop sooner or later within 12 months is expected. If you are asking if you could utilize the power of the X13, you should know this thing isn't the most powerful gaming/designer laptop out there. It is THE most powerful in its own category - 13 inch, thin and light, 2 in 1. If you are buying this in hope to get the XG Mobile dock in the future - think twice. The shortage of supply is not going anywhere soon. Even when widely available, the price of that dock is likely going to be higher than the laptop itself. Only one situation is a definite yes to the question - that you know what you are getting and what to expect. Like mentioned before, the X13 is underpowered compared to a lot of other laptops within this price range (2000 CAD pre taxes); but then again this laptop stands in its own category and so far nothing else shakes the ground of it. Surprisingly, at a much lower cost (around 1200 CAD pre taxes), The M1 MacBook Air is very very close in terms of productivity, but when coming to gaming, Mac stands no chance. So the choice is at your call: do you care for the touch screen/2 in 1 functionality and Windows software/games or do you care for the battery life and Apple ecosystem? To me, the almost 1000 CAD difference makes this a no brainer to embrace the M1 MacBook Air. But there are always a refresh waiting in Apple's hand, and the design of X13 is so appealing so there's that. Spend your money wisely and embrace the exciting future. Thanks for the read!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
