Probably super late
The Flow Z13 is very close to my ideal device, perfectly portable while still being quite powerful, with the option to add even more power with the XG mobile, i would love to use one as my main device but while it is perfect to handle the gaming and free time entertainment it can be a bit lacking for profesional workloads, for that it needs a few improvements, mainly in 2 areas.
To begin, the RAM, while 16GB is enough for games, for professionals, especially engineers like me it is not enough, i feel like having a 32GB RAM option would provide a lot of headroom for games, as well as being enough for professionals who plan to use the Z13 for both games and work.
The second issue that needs to be addressed is with the XG Mobile, The XG Mobile is a great way to expand the capabilities of the Z13 but the issue is that it requires to be plugged to power all the time you are using it, in some parts of the world blackouts are very common and happen fairly often, if such a thing were to happen the XG Mobile becomes a hazzard for the integrity of the Z13 because the system needs to go through the process of disconnecting it and switching to integrated graphics but since there is no power it is unable to which causes the Operating System to crash and turn off possibly corrupting data, an easy solution to this would be to add a small battery to the XG Mobile, enough so that when it detects that the power source is unplugged the XG Mobile can tell the Z13 it should switch to integrated graphics, which would prevent system failures.
Now, a few more features i would love for the Z13 to have is, first of all, swappable RAM, this would solve the issue of RAM because now, if you need more RAM you can simply swap the SO-DIMM modules, and another feature i would love is more NVME storage slots, i know the Z13 has one NVME 2230 size slot that is easy to reach and comes with 1TB, but 1TB is almost nothing for current users, having another 2230 slot can solve this issue by giving users the option to add more if they need, and if some day higher capacity 2230 size drives come to the market users could have the option to add even more storage.
As technology continues to evolve, so do our laptops. With each passing year, new features and innovations are introduced, making our devices more powerful, efficient, and user-friendly. So, what features would we like to see in future notebooks?
First and foremost, longer battery life is a must. While many laptops claim to have all-day battery life, the reality is often far less. We need notebooks that can last all day without needing to be charged.
Another important feature is improved portability. As more people work on the go, notebooks need to be lightweight and easy to carry. Thinner and lighter designs, without sacrificing power or performance, would be a great addition.
One area where notebooks could improve is in cooling. As laptops become more powerful, they also generate more heat. Better cooling solutions would not only help to extend the life of the device, but also prevent discomfort during long periods of use.
We'd like to see more powerful graphics cards, faster SSDs, and more RAM. These improvements would not only benefit gamers but also professionals who need powerful machines for editing and rendering.
