Asus Wednesday announced the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition gaming laptop. The 14-inch laptop comes with the standard ROG Zephyrus G14 spec-sheet along with some new features and elements unique to the special edition. Asus’ ROG brand worked closely with hit DJ and music producer Alan Walker, and hence the name ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Laptop
New styling and colours
The Alan Walker edition of the laptop comes with the new styling. This includes new colour accents across the laptop. The signature Asus AniMe Matrix tech is now available in a new Spectre Blue shade. Users will also get a similar tone in the nameplate of the laptop, with the artist’s signature next to the ROG logo.
Two fabric belts across the lid add ROG’s signature cyberpunk flair, with one belt using reflective text that blends seamlessly with the matrix LEDs. There is a custom Alan Walker boot animation as well as a new wallpaper.
Apart from this the ‘A’ and ‘W’ keys on the laptop also get the artist’s logo on top, while the other keycaps get matching signature Alan Walker colours. The glass touchpad below the keyboard is shaded with a customised pattern that is inspired by a music equaliser.
The Alan Walker edition of the laptop also comes with a unique box that is more than just packaging for the laptop. With a USB-C port, the box turns into a remix-sampler when connected to the G14, complete with conductive pads on the surface that allow users to trigger 18 of Walker’s own sound effects. The ROG Remix also displays unique ROG and Alan Walker inspired animations on the main screen of the laptop and AniMe Matrix panel based on the MIDI inputs selected.
