Enjoy a world of color with ASUS Splendid Technology
To ensure only the very best images, ASUS Splendid Technology has color temperature correction to reproduce richer, deeper colors. It features four visuals modes which can be accessed with a single click. Vivid Mode optimizes contrast for browsing photos or watching videos and movies; Eye Care Mode reduces blue light levels and is ideal when you're reading for long hours. Normal Mode has been tuned for daily tasks; while Manual Mode is for advanced color adjustments.
Protect your eyes with ASUS Eye Care
Most LED panels emit blue light - the main cause of macular degeneration and retinal problems. ASUS Eye Care mode effectively reduces blue light levels by up to 33% to make reading comfortable, and to protect you from potential eye fatigue and other ailments.
Ergonomic keyboard design
Typing is now more comfortable than ever with the X Series' full-size one-piece chiclet keyboard. An improved back assembly provides 1.8 mm of key travel and minimal key float, so you get a more solid typing feel.
Stays cool, even after hours of use
ASUS IceCool Technology gives X Series a unique internal design that addresses uncomfortable heating issues by preventing heat build-up under the palm rest. This keeps the palm rest surface between 28°C to 35°C - significantly lower than body temperature. This exclusive internal layout places heat producing components away from you, and when combined with exceptional cooling from the heat pipes and vents, ensures you stay comfortable even after long hours of use.
