Right now, the Asus ROG Flow X13 2-in-1 gaming laptop costs just $999 at Best Buy. That’s a serious $600 discount on a 13.4-inch gaming laptop with great specs. Oh, and did we mention it folds up into a tablet? Try finding that for under $1,000.
It wouldn’t be Black Friday without some killer Black Friday laptop deals, like the one we just spotted at Best Buy.
In our Asus ROG Flow X13 review, we were quite impressed. The thin and light design makes it a surprisingly portable gaming laptop, and the 2-in-1 design adds another layer of versatility.
That’s not to say there aren’t problems. For a GPU, the Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti is relatively underpowered, so while you can play many modern games, don’t expect maximum settings.
Plus, the screen is sharp and the keyboard comfortable. Overall, it’s just hard to find this good of an all-around gaming laptop in a 13-inch form factor, let alone at this price.
And the machine runs a little hot, though we didn’t find that to be a problem in our review unless the laptop was using 100% of its power.
Still, if you don’t need a high-end gaming laptop, this is an incredible deal. Finding that much power under the hood is a difficult task for many laptops, and the fact that the ROG Flow X13 now costs just $999 makes it a great deal.
Add to that impressive features like a 1TB SSD and the 2-in-1 touchscreen design, and I can almost guarantee you won’t find a laptop this versatile – and this loaded – for this cheap.
Still, if this isn’t quite the laptop for you, there’s good news. Our hub for Black Friday deals is up and running, with great deals from all over the Web. There’s also this deal on a Dell XPS 13 for $999, which is another killer portable laptop for under $1,000.
