Intel Core performance and NVIDIA graphics
ASUS X Series laptops are powered by the up
to latest 6th-generation IntelCorei7 processor with up
to 8GB RAM (expandable to 16GB), and NVIDIAGeForce940M
graphics. With Windows 10 preinstalled, X Series is ideal for daily computing
and entertainment tasks. Users can opt for a 2TB hard disk, or upgrade to a

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.
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

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.

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
