Stay comfortable with IceCool technology
Exclusive ASUS engineering has created a unique internal layout that keeps heat away from palm rests and from users. Always below body temperature, palm rests feel cool to the touch, and are therefore more comfortable to use even during long sessions.
Smartphone-like responsiveness with instant on*
Only ASUS notebooks offer you true 2-second instant on resume from sleep or hibernate, cutting out long reboot times and putting you back to work or enjoyment right where you left off. Thanks to ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology, you also get up to 14 days of standby, with auto data backup should battery charge drop to 5% or less.
*Actual X501 standby time may vary due to specific component performance, connected devices, and environmental differentiation.
