The ASUS ROG Flow X13, while in the premium price range, is highly portable and has a compact 13.4-inch touchscreen display with a tall aspect ratio and high resolution, ideal for productivity and media consumption. It's also equipped with a powerful AMD Ryzen processor and Nvidia RTX graphics, making it suitable for intensive gaming, 3D rendering, and machine learning tasks. However, it has half the battery life of the Gigabyte Aorus 5. On the other hand, the Gigabyte Aorus 5, also priced at a premium, offers a larger 15.6-inch display with a faster refresh rate, beneficial for gaming but lacks a touchscreen. It has a beefier battery and is powered by an Intel processor with Nvidia RTX graphics, making it robust for engineering and other intensive applications, but it's also heavier and less portable than the ASUS. If portability and a touchscreen are priorities, the ASUS may be your preference; for more traditional gaming experience with a larger screen and longer battery life, consider the Aorus 5.

NotebookCheck

Sebastian Bade | February 2021
"The Asus ROG Flow X13 is not an off-the-shelf convertible. This quickly becomes clear when you take a closer look at the technical specs. The AMD Ryzen 9 5980HS is a state-of-the-art SoC with 8 cores and 16 threads, which also makes the 2-in-1 interesting as a work device. With 32 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD, gamers are also well taken care of. The dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q fits well into the overall concept and ensures a solid 3D performance. With the eGPU dock, which is equipped with a GeForce RTX 3080, the small convertible transforms into a full-fledged desktop replacement in terms of performance."

Can Buy or Not

Vincent Chang | June 2022
"The Gigabyte Aorus 5 SE4 is a capable mainstream gaming notebook that will run the latest PC games with aplomb. However, it's not your stereotypical flashy gaming PC. Gigabyte has added some interesting tweaks. For example, the webcam placement and its Microsoft Azure AI tool — to automatically switch between power modes — are unusual for this genre. But more importantly, the pricing is fairly competitive and reasonable."
