Intel Core performance and NVIDIA graphics
ASUS X Series laptops are powered by the up to latest 6th-generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 8GB RAM (expandable to 16 GB), and NVIDIA GeForce 940M graphics. With Windows 10 preinstalled, X Series is ideal for daily computing and entertainment tasks. Users can opt for a 2 TB hard disk, or upgrade to a solid-state disk for faster data access speeds.
ASUS Eye Care technology effectively reduces blue light levels by up to 33% to protect users' eyes, and it does this without compromising display contrast. It is designed to reduce instances of eye strain and other damaging effects on the eye for users who spend long hours in front of their computer. ASUS X Series delivers crisp Full HD visuals, with ASUS Splendid technology providing color temperature correction and optimization for richer, deeper colors. There are three optimized modes: Vivid Mode enhances contrast for photos or movies, Normal Mode for daily computing, and Manual Mode for advanced color adjustments. ASUS SonicMaster technology is designed to give users the best notebook audio experience; with ASUS AudioWizard providing six different audio presets optimized for various types of content.
Elegant, expressive designs
ASUS X Series laptops feature three cover designs. Depending on the model, users can choose between glossy Glamor Red, Chocolate Brown, or Arctic Snow; a Navy Blue spun-metal-effect finish, or brushed-metal-effect Icicle Gold finish. These elegant laptops are engineered with the user in mind as well, and incorporate a host of hardware and software features to enhance the user experience. ASUS IceCool Technology incorporates a unique internal design to address uncomfortable heating issues, by preventing heat build-up underneath the palm rest. Heat-generating components are moved away from the user to ensure palm rest surfaces stay between 28°C to 35°C - significantly lower than body temperature - to ensure a comfortable user experience even after hours of computing. ASUS X Series laptops use lithium-polymer (Li-poly) batteries that are designed for up to 700 charge cycles, giving them 2.5 times (2.5X) the lifespan of standard Li-ion cylinder batteries. Li-poly batteries also retain up to 80% of their original charge capacity even after hundreds of charge cycles, so users won't have to worry about deteriorating battery performance.
Extensive connectivity including USB Type-C
ASUS X Series laptops feature reversible USB Type-C ports for added convenience. With these, users can enjoy USB 3.1 Gen 1 data transmission speeds of up to 5Gbit/s - 10 times (10X) that of USB 2.0. Additional connectivity options include standard USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, along with HDMI and VGA output for external displays. The laptops also feature a 3-in-1 SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader, an RJ-45 Ethernet port and a DVD Super Multi optical disc drive.
