Six times world champion in skateboarding, Nyjah huston is also a PC player. To develop a custom gaming laptop for Huston, ROG used its famous ROG Strix SCAR 17 as a base.
A unique Custom
It includes a screen with a refresh rate of 360 Hz and a response time of 3 ms, a GeForce RTX 30 (obviously a 3080 for its model) and an AMD Ryzen processor of the 5000 series.
The laptop ASUS designed for me is so amazing and unique that I was bowled over when I pulled it out of the box. I have never seen a laptop like this.
The special edition ROG Strix Nyjah Huston features elements that celebrate Huston and “skate culture”. Designed to evoke the look of a skate park, the logo is three-dimensional and has a textured finish. Attention to detail extends to the translucent smoky surfaces of the keyboard and the bottom of the laptop which are inspired by the use of x-rays to check for fractures after falls in pro skaters! Carrment.
Attention to detail
The keys have “skateboard scars” and the designers at ROG have adjusted the level of key transparency to allow a circular backlighting effect on each key. Finally, the digital lock button on the touchpad has been replaced with the Huston logo.
