    ASUS X550CA-CJ531H notebook

    Encircling Beauty and Performance
    - Classic spin-line finish;
    - Up to Intel® Core™ i7 processor;
    - True instant on 2-sec resume from sleep mode.

    Classic, timeless design
    Reliable and comfortable to use, the new X Series notebook has a Zen-inspired concentric circle finish for a classy, elegant feel. Its slim profile is 5% thinner than the previous X Series notebook.

    Providing a smooth computing experience
    X550 is an ideal machine for both productive computing and entertainment. Available up to a 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce™ 700 Series graphics card, the X550 delivers smooth, responsive performance that is more than adequate for daily multitask computing or multimedia entertainment.

    A notebook with smartphone-like accessibility
    The X550 features the exclusive ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II with instant on to provide you with smartphone-like levels of accessibility. It can resume from sleep mode in just two seconds and has up to 14 days of standby time. It automatically saves your data when battery levels drop below 5%, so your documents are kept safe and secure.

    Ultra-fast data transfers
    The X550 comes with USB 3.0 to give you ultra-fast data transfer speeds that are up to 10 times that of USB 2.0. All your files and content can be copied and backed up in seconds. Say goodbye to long waiting times – transferring a 25GB Blu-ray-quality movie now takes a mere 70 seconds.
    Ultra-fast data transfers

    Clearer sound and deeper bass
    On most notebooks, all sound frequencies originate from small onboard speakers. The resulting audio comes from a single source and lacks distinctiveness. Like other notebooks in the ASUS range, the X550 comes equipped with SonicMaster technology to bring you high fidelity audio. Experience omnidirectional sound and hear each individual instrument’s nuances with the X550.

    Lifelike colors with ASUS Splendid technology
    Exclusive Splendid technology delivers vibrant visuals to satisfy the most demanding viewing standards. It Fine-tunes display properties based on application, adjusting color gamut and accuracy. The results are more vibrant colors and pristine image quality in all applications, from movies to photos. Splendid technology provides four modes to accommodate different viewing conditions, so you can choose the most suitable preset based on personal preference and environment.

    Solid typing experience
    The back-assembled, seamless one-piece keyboard prevents key float to provide you with a comfortable and assured typing experience. The Chiclet keyboard design spaces out the keys to provide an improved layout that ensures typing accuracy. Each individual key has been expertly tuned to ASUS’s Golden Ratio of keyboard force and stroke to increase key responsiveness. These details add up to reduce user fatigue even after prolonged periods of typing.

    Precise input
    The X550 has a large touchpad equipped with Smart Gesture technology for quick and precise response across a wide range of touch inputs like pinch-zoom, drag-and-drop, and multi-finger page manipulation.

    Crystal-clear video calls
    The X550 features a webcam with a highly sensitive sensor with exceptional low-light performance. It allows you to keep in touch with friends and family through smooth 16:9, full screen video conferencing.

    Access your data and files anytime, anywhere
    ASUS WebStorage ensures you get access to your data and files on any device that has an internet connection. With ASUS WebStorage, your files are automatically kept up-to-date and synced across various devices; you can share photos and videos with friends and family, and stream your music and movies to your device. The X Series comes with three years of free 32GB of ASUS WebStorage.
