Reviews for the Asus Zephyrus G14 GA401QEC

82.7% Asus Zephyrus G14 GA401Q review: Alan Walker Special Edition 14-inch gaming laptop | Notebookcheck
The Zephyrus G14 is a compact gaming device that was unrivaled for a long time. In order to distance itself from the competition, Asus takes a different approach with the Zephyrus G14 by presenting the device as an "Alan Walker Special Edition" with nice design features that make the device visually eye-catching.
80% Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition review
Source: Techradar English
Give it up for the new Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition. It’s a new version of the second iteration of what was already a great laptop. The original Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 was something of a genre buster when it arrived last year with its compact 14-inch proportions, awesome AMD CPU and great gaming performance. This new second generation Special Edition model carries over that basic proposition, but adds an unusual twist, namely collaboration with the eponymous DJ and musician Alan Walker. As we type these words, Walker currently has the 19th most popular video on Youtube with no fewer than 3.2 billions views, not to mention over 10 billion channel views. Not bad. Anyway, Walker has collaborated with Asus to produce a new version of the G14 that fuses music with gaming. The basic design of the G14 is carried over, complete with the funky Anime Matrix programmable LED feature on the rear of the display. But various tweaks including a change to metallic grey, fabric inserts and new colours for the keyboard make for a distinct new look.

80% Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Edition review: Three layers of mind-blowing, good and average
Source: India Today English
There is no doubt that the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Edition is an impressive laptop on many fronts. Asus has taken care of all the major aspects of the laptop, including a great, portable form factor, powerful performance enablers and stunning design and theme. You will still find bits and pieces missing here and there. For instance, the device does not come with a webcam, definitely a big drawback in today's world. Even with the powerful specs, there is a chance that you will be left wanting more at some point, more so if you have seen other laptops perform better at a lower price. So, if your focus is on budget, you can probably look at other machines for your use, including the standard Zephyrus G14 without the Alan Walker branding. But if you want to stand out in the crowd with a portable laptop that serves you well for most purposes, Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Edition is the laptop for you.

ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Special Edition Harmonises Tech and Music

The laptop even features a custom boot animation and Alan Walker wallpaper. The glass touchpad is shaded with a customized pattern inspired by a music equalizer, alongside keycaps matching Alan Walker’s signature colors—plus A and W keys with the producer’s logo printed on top. To cap it all off, an Alan Walker and ROG-styled baseball cap and pair of socks also come bundled with a special edition of the ROG Sleeve so owners can represent the Republic anywhere.

70% Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Edition review: Only for hardcore fans
Source: Gadgets Now English
The price to feature ratio or let’s say performance to price ratio is well maintained here. However, it’s a special edition and Asus has completely justified it with the design and by offering a bunch of other addons like customised boot-up animation and sound, Alan Walker AniMe Matrix graphics. But, there should have been more significant changes in terms of hardware than just aesthetics. The laptop does just fine in every aspect and it brings much more to the table over the regular version. The Zephyrus G14 Alan Walker Edition is worth a buy if you are a music lover especially an Alan Walker fan. Otherwise, the regular Zephyrus G14 will serve the purpose.
