Earlier in January, Asus announced a number of products set to release this year, but we think their Asus ROG Flow Z13, which boasts impressive functionality and performance, will make one of the biggest splashes in the gaming laptop arena to date.

The laptop is a sort of super-charged Surface Pro 8 and a follow up to the highly praised Asus ROG Flow X13, which has similar hybrid functionality.
