ASUS ROG often collaborates with famous figures in order to produce some of the wackiest products and the latest partnership brought the brand and legendary DJ Alan Walker together and oh boy, the collab merchs are pretty sick.
Can’t call a ROG partnership a ROG partnership without a special edition laptop, isn’t it? Alan Walker himself handed picked the ROG Zephyrus G14 as his choice of mobile powerhouse due to the powerful internals and the design philosophy that matches his idea and style of creative production. From what you can see here, the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition, the extra and custom flares are all tuned to Alan’s taste featuring the Spectral Blue version of the AniMe Matrix LED Array, the reflective nameplate that shows different hues at multiple angles, and fabric belts carrying his and ROG’s name. Additionally, the Enter, Right Shift, and Esc buttons are colored in blue with the A and W keys replaced with Alan Walker’s own logo. Ah yes, the usual ROG Sleeve backpack for the laptop will also be a special Alan Walker edition as well.

The special partnership also breathed life into one of the most unique packaging ever. The custom-made acrylic sits at the top of the box while a USB-C port can be found at the side. That’s right, once you’ve connected the box to the Zephyrus G14, the entire thing turns into the ROG Remix Sampler with the acrylic surface now becoming conductive pads that let you trigger all the 18 types of audio samples and SFX used by Alan Walker himself. Either use one of his’s tracks as a base or import your own and go ham with your creative muscles. Oh, while you’re doing all of these, the laptop screen and AniMe Matrix will dynamically sync to your MIDI inputs and change depending on your input. Who said a packaging box’s purpose is just about encasing products?
And lastly, a couple of apparel are included in the package which is a cap and a pair of socks with the names of both parties stitched onto them. Well, the cap is easier to get some leering eyes but not sure about the socks though.
ASUS ROG Malaysia also included some good news to fellow fans because the ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition bundle will become available sometime during September and with limited units available, be sure to follow the brand’s Facebook page and our site so you can be one of the earliest people to get one.
