In a recent court session, Alina Habba, one of the lawyers representing former US President Donald Trump, unexpectedly became the center of attention. However, it was not for anything she said, but for the gaming laptop she was using. Habba was seen using a model from Asus’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) line, known for its flashy lights and color-changing design. This choice of equipment seemed out of place in the somber and formal setting of the courtroom, capturing the public and media’s interest.
Speculated to be the ROG Strix G17 G712, according to Kotaku, Habba’s laptop model features a 17-inch screen and is priced around $1700. During the hearing, the laptop was seen changing colors, with the Asus logo transitioning between blue and orange.
Donald Trump, the former president and current presidential candidate, is currently involved in a $250 billion fraud case, and his legal team is under intense media and public scrutiny. Habba’s unorthodox character, along with her history of controversial actions and statements, including allegations of racist behavior in a civil lawsuit last year, adds an extra layer of intrigue to this already complex and highly publicized case.
Habba has not confirmed whether her choice of laptop model was driven by a personal interest in video games or simply based on functionality or aesthetics. Her unconventional approach in the courtroom and unconventional equipment choices have generated numerous comments and speculations on social media and online forums.
