Incredible Beauty

A classic, timeless design

The ASUS X Series is the perfect all-round laptop for work and play. Stylish and durable design is combined with a choice of Intel® or AMD processors, while 2-second Instant on gives smartphone like accessibility and SonicMaster technology gives great sound quality.

Incredible Performance

Providing a smooth computing experience

Value-packed with all the essentials, the X Series reinvents your daily computing experience. Whether you are using it for work or for fun, this is an ideal machine for both productive computing and entertainment. It features an Intel® Core™ i3 processor and Instant on that resumes your computer from sleep mode in 2 seconds and USB 3.0 for 10 times faster data transfer speed. ASUS X Series gives you everything you need for a truly satisfying multitask computing and multimedia experience.

Incredible Sound

Precise, crystal clear audio to complete the cinematic experience

Experience omnidirectional sound and hear each individual instrument's nuances with the X Series..

Incredible Touch

The ASUS Golden Finger team puts natural interfaces first, developing standards far beyond industry average. This assures ASUS provides the most comfortable and responsive experiences in every application and at all times. The X Series has a large touchpad equipped with Smart Gesture technology for quick and precise response across a wide range of touch inputs. The ergonomic seamless one-piece keyboard is designed to provide you the most comfortable typing experience.

Q: I have this laptop and it has no button on the disk tray, I also get no joy when I go to My Computer so how else do you open it? It looks like it can open but there's no button to it.
Answer by Dan@CCL on 22nd April 2014
There should be a button the drive itself, a slim horizontal one. This should eject the drive. Alternatively you can right-click on the drive in My Computer and choose "Eject".

Answer by Website User on 14th May 2014
The X551CA has a DVD drive on the right side, in the middle of that door panel is a small rectangular button...push it and make sure you push that button in...sometimes if you push the button lightly, it won't register the button being pushed. Once it's pushed, wait a second or two and the DVD will pop out; if it doesn't push it again, but make sure you get the button pushed in.
