ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition is coming to Malaysia next month!
ASUS kicked off a whole new design language with the ROG Zephyrus G14. Instead of the gamery design of prior ROG laptops, the ROG Zephyrus G14 brought an more lifestyle-oriented aesthetic. Then we have the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition, which takes the design of the ROG Zephyrus G14 up a notch with the renowned DJ’s touch.
The whole experience of owning the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition starts from the packaging. Instead of a regular box, the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition comes in the ROG Remix sampler. This is probably the world’s first laptop packaging to come with a USB port! Once you connect the ROG Remix sampler to your ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition, you can use the conductive pads on the surface of the box to trigger 18 of Alan Walker’s own sound effects.
You can then create your own take of Alan Walker’s tracks, or import your own music into the custom software. The software is developed with Alan Walker, with the software displaying ROG and Alan Walker inspired animations on the main screen and AniMe Matrix while you are creating your next chart-topper. On top of the ROG Remix sampler, you also get the ROG x Alan Walker baseball cap and socks.
Moving on to the laptop itself, I would say that this is a great collaboration and enhancement of the base ROG Zephyrus G14’s aesthetics. Designed in partnership with Alan Walker, the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition touts unique color accents like the exclusive Spectre Blue AniMe Matrix LED array. The nameplate is also blue, with Alan Walker’s signature beside the ROG logo.
There are also two fabric belts that run diagonally across the lid, with one of them featuring reflective text to complement the AniMe Matrix panel. On the inside, the keyboard features keycaps with Alan Walker’s signature colors, and Alan Walker’s logo on the A and W keys. The trackpad of the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition also gets a customized pattern inspired by a music equalizer. Once you turn it on, you will see the exclusive custom boot animation and Alan Walker wallpaper.
Specifications wise, the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition features the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU. While it might be better suited to music fans, the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition is still capable of some serious gaming when you want to switch gears.
