ASUS ROG Flow X13 GV301RE-LJ096W Review
The ASUS ROG Flow X13 GV301RE-LJ096W is powered by the 8 Core/ 16 Thread processor the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS and Nvidia RTX 3050Ti 4 GB VRAM. Other key specs include 32GB RAM, 1 TB SSD and a 13.4 Inch WUXGA (1920x1200) 120 Hz Touchscreen display. These are high end specs for a 13 inch thin and light machine that being said the GPU here is a mid tear GPU but with the external graphics dock it will outperform most Desktop PCs in 2022. This with an exceptional build quality makes it a great device for content creators.
Design and Build Quality
The ASUS ROG Flow X13 GV301RE-LJ096W has a composite chassis made out of magnesium, aluminum, and plastic. Here the base of the device is plastic with a matte finish which will attract fingerprints. Most of these laptop strips are for extra grip. In terms of thickness, it’s only 15.8mm and weighs in at 1.30 kg making it very travel friendly.
The 360-degree hinge not only allows the device to have a smooth transition between different modes but also allows you to open the device with one hand and with the rubber tips on the base of the device it is able to stand on a slippery surface. For exhaust, we have two exhaust grills which are relatively small and you can also find the speaker grills on each side. In terms of build quality, the device feels solid and has practically zero flex. The bezels around the screen are relatively thin and feature an HD camera for video calls/Zoom meetings.
The ASUS ROG Flow X13 GV301RE-LJ096W offers limited number of ports. The USB Type C on the right side of the device supports the display port and power delivery. The highlight feature here is the External GPU docking port the ROG XG Mobile on the left side.
- 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type C
- 1x USB 3.2 (Type-A)
- ROG XG Mobile Interface (e-GPU Docking Port)
- 3.5 mm Combo Audio Jack
The RAM on the ASUS ROG Flow X13 GV301RE-LJ096W is soldered on to the motherboard and on the storage end of things we have one m.2 (2230) slot which is occupied by a 1 TB SSD NVMe SSD
Keyboard and Trackpad
The keyboard here has chiclet-style keys with 3 stage backlight. The keys have a short travel distance with a clear actuation point makes for a decent typing experience. Due to its small size, it comes with small arrow keys and does not feature a Numpad. The trackpad, on the other hand, has a smooth surface with high accuracy that being said measuring in at (10.6 x 6.2 cm) it feels a little small.
