Asus ROG FLow x13 in stock at Best Buy. $1499.99

$1,499.99

I know I might get dragged for posting a laptop for MSRP, but I've been waiting for months for this, and if it's anything like the g15's it will not stay in stock so I'm hoping it can help someone else looking for a niche laptop like I was. Supposedly this is the 3050ti refresh of the flow x13, I ordered it overnight a minute ago so I should have it tomorrow, if anyone is interested I can test whatever you need out or run a benchmark, or at least confirm what gpu is actually in it when it gets to me.

The Best Buy ad doesn't show anything properly but it's a 2 in 1 touchscreen, 360 degree hinge, reasonable gaming performance, and they have an external gpu with a 3080 coming out for it, the screen is also taller than a standard widescreen laptop layout which is what I prefer, hopefully it comes as I expect it as Best Buy's website didn't list anything correctly but I ordered anyways as these newer ryzen laptops have been hard to come by sometimes. The g15 I am using now was sold out for quite a while, definitely could get better 2 in ones for the price, and better gaming laptops for the price, but I personally really enjoy having one device to cover all my bases, I usually use them for trading stocks and occasionally crypto, but when I have downtime I do game a little.

Why exactly? Ports are not the greatest and the screen sucks. You bought a laptop with 120hz visible ghosting 25ms+ response times for 1500$.. that's horrid.

Because I game maybe once a week, pretty much never at home, I like to be able to but don't need a full blown gaming laptop every day. Don't care about ports much either, like I said in the OP I know it's a niche product, just trying to help anyone else who has been waiting for one. The screen does have me slightly concerned, not as much the response time, I don't know how much I care about that I'm a casual gamer, but overall quality I need to be good, Best Buy is good for returns though if I don't like it I will stick with my g15 and an iPad like I'm doing now.

This looks like the ROG Flow x13 but is not labeled as such. the specs match up with 1 13.4" screen. GN20-P1 seemed to be code for 3050ti but haven't confirmed yet. from the pictures, it looks like it has an XG mobile port on it as well. no 3080 xg mobile include though and this is the 16gb variant with 5900HS and WUXGA screen, edit: 120hz refresh rate ( thanks for pointing that out)

There's a post on Reddit where someone bought this model number on Best Buy Canada's site and it looks like it has the 3050ti

What do you mean "no mention of refresh rate"?

It says 120 Hz - "13.4" WUXGA display with 120Hz refresh rate"

Did you not read it or? Its also in the main picture. LMAO

Personally I skipped posting the specs due to the poor ad on Best Buy's site, it obviously is lacking in information and has things labeled incorrectly, for instance it says touch screen-no, and no mention of it being a 2 in 1 although it is in the 2 in 1 laptop list there, that's how I found it. I can post actual info when the mail gets to me tomorrow if anyone is actually interested with it in my hands so I know it is accurate. Obviously this is not a good deal on a gaming laptop, it's also not a good deal on a 2in1, this is for someone who wants both in one device I understand that, again I was just trying to help anyone looking to get one before they sell out and end up scalped on eBay like the g15's were.

obviously this is not for everyone, but there is definitely interest in these laptops, people are posting on Other sites about availability and where they can be found, not everyone wants a desktop or plays enough games to need a normal gaming laptop, I never suggested the specs were good for the price, nor should anyone expect what is probably the thinnest and lightest gaming laptop, that also happens to double as a tablet to have killer specs for cheap. 95% of the time my laptop is running thinkorswim or a web browser both of which can be done on any semi recent laptop just fine, the 5% of the time I have to play games I don't need it to play on 4K ultra or anything, I just want the ability to play recent games at a playable frame rate at moderate settings. Feel free to show me any similar laptop with better specs for any price at all.
