With the mention of Acronym, you would probably think of fashion pieces but not this time. This time the Acronym is on a tablet – thanks to the collaboration between the ASUS Republic of Gamers and the technical apparel company.
The tablet, called ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02, brings together the world of fashion, art, tech, Web3, and gaming. Also, it is not an Android tablet; it is a Windows tablet.
The ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 is powered by an Intel Core i9-13900H processor, paired with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU, and a backlit chiclet keyboard, which effectively makes it a tablet-sized laptop.
It features a beautifully intricate, custom-machined aluminum body paired with an ingeniously designed integrated carry system – a versatile strap, for easy lugging around – that effectively turned it into a bag itself.
In addition, it boasts rubber holds that are inset to provide grip in every orientation, while the corners are reinforced to protect it from bumps and drops.
The avant-garde and futuristic design is penned by industrial designer and feature film concept artist Phil Saunders, who is better known for designing the iconic Iron Man suit.
The device is intentionally “raw” leaving the CNC path marks for the extra industrial vibe.
The device, as the name implies, is part of ROG’s 2023 Flow series. In addition to an integrated carry system and stabilized grips to aid use on the go, it also touts an integrated kickstand that allows the RMT02 to be used like a traditional laptop for gaming, creation, or content viewing.
The kickstand can also be used when the device is in portrait orientation too, making it the first Z13 that can be propped up in both orientations.
Another highlight of the device is a total thermal capacity of 80 W enabled by the ROG Intelligent Cooling System with a vapor chamber. The VC here is said to cover 50% of the mainboard.
Moreover, liquid-metal and arc-flow fans ensure 0 dB ambient cooling, keeping the device nice and cool without creating ding.
Other notables include a 16:10 aspect ratio 165 Hz ROG Nebula display, Corning Gorilla Glass DXC, a MUX Switch, NVIDIA Advanced Optimus, 32 GB LPDDR5 5200 MHz RAM, 1 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, a 5 MP IR front-facing camera, a 13 MP rear-facing camera, Thunderbolt 4, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, a Type-A port, a Type-C port, and microSD card slot, ROG XG Mobile Interface, a 3.5 mm combo audio jack, and 130 W fast charging.
The Flow Z13-ACRNM RMT02 is supplied with a custom Acryonym pounce designed to accommodate the power supply, power cables, and pen.
