Asus ROG Flow Z13 ACRNM gaming slate is an almost perfect rugged tablet with Windows 11 Pro and stylus

From afar, the ROG Flow Z13-ACRNM from Asus looks like a rugged tablet similar to the one magnesium-coated ToughPad models from Panasonic.

Produced in partnership with revered artist Errolson Hugh, the RMT02 (as it is otherwise known), is pitched as a gaming tablet but its price (£2999 in the UK, $2500 in the US) and form factor make it a match in heaven for businesses, organizations and professionals eager to get a top of the range slate without an outrageous price tag.
