Everybody has been asking for new colors on the Asus ROG laptops as black with RGB looks good, but they wanted other coolers. We saw a look at their partnership with BMW for laptops and the grey received good feedback. They went a step farther and made a glacier blue which looks even better.

Glacier Blue Available On All New Models

Continuing the trend for unique looking laptops that push the boundaries of conventional design, 2019 brings a striking new color for the newest ROG gaming laptops. Though Original Black is here to stay, this year’s focus on ROG Intelligent Cooling inspired our designers to find a cool color to complement our improved thermals. The result is a frosty shade that looks and feels brighter and lighter, bringing new energy to gaming laptops. To retain a sense of boldness and hint at the hardware within, we passed over sleepier shades in favor of high-energy blues inspired by science fiction.

Glacier Blue unifies these concepts with a wintry look. This specific shade has a slight silvery sheen in the light, making it appear paler and more polished from a distance, but it becomes surprisingly saturated upon closer inspection. The brighter appearance helps mask fingerprints and other blemishes while also blending in with more mainstream and professional laptops. Bolder blue tones jump out when you’re up close or in darker environments, providing a shot of color along with more contrast for RGB lighting. Glacier Blue is coming later this year in the Zephyrus S GX502, Zephyrus M GU502, and Strix G G531 and G731.

The specs for all the laptops are listed here.

These laptops look amazing and without a doubt, other companies need to follow suit making different color options for their laptops. Pricing will most likely be the same as the regular models.
