The ASUS X540 Series is powered by Intel® processors to give you a smooth and responsive computing performance. With Integrated Intel® HD Graphics, an advanced onboard memory controller, 4GB RAM, and Windows 10, X540 is an ideal daily computing platform.

Faster and Easier Connections with USB Type-C

The new reversible USB Type-C port makes connecting devices much easier; and gives you super-fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 speeds of up to 5Gbit/s so you can transfer a 2GB movie to a USB drive in less than 2 seconds! Its compact port design even helps preserve X540's thin dimensions.

The X540 still carries the traditional USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports to ensure compatibility with all your USB devices. X540 has additional connectivity options including HDMI and VGA output for external displays, a 3-in-1 SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader, an RJ-45 Ethernet port, and a DVD Super Multi optical disc drive.

Expansive Audio, Tuned by Experts

A mixture of hardware, software, and tuning, SonicMaster was developed with the clear goal of giving you the best notebook PC audio. A professional codec ensures precise sound performance; while an optimised amplifier, larger speakers and resonance chambers deliver powerful audio output and deeper bass. Additional signal processing helps fine tune the hardware, filtering noise and improving clarity so you can enjoy unrivalled audio on your X Series.

Crafted Speaker design for greater sound

The X540 features round speakers that maximise every cubic millimeter of available chassis space to give you better low frequency performance and reduced noise. The extra-large 19.4cc chamber provides superior bass and excellent sound clarity.

AudioWizard-Optimised Tuning

To customise audio settings to suit your own preferences, ASUS AudioWizard has five selectable modes. Music mode brings your favorite songs to life, while Movie mode provides a true cinematic experience. Recording mode gives dynamic and crystal-clear recordings, and Gaming mode adds a new dimension of enjoyment to your favorite games. Finally, Speech mode makes voices clear and powerful.

Elegant finished. Lightweight Design

ASUS X540 has a solid and lightweight chassis that weighs just 2kg – ideal to take with you when you're out and about. Its premium brushed finish turns heads and makes sure that you stand out from the crowd.

Enjoy a World of Colour 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 optimises 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 1.8mm of key travel and minimal key float, so you get a more solid typing feel.

Intuitive ASUS Smart Gesture input

ASUS Smart Gesture technology utilizes an intelligent combination of hardware and software optimisation to give you precise input. Sophisticated smartphone touchscreen production methods result in a highly sensitive touchpad that allows you to pinch-zoom in and out, or scroll through images and webpages with ease.

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.

Q: Does the laptop have a DVD player?
Answer by Website User on 29th August 2018
No, it does not. Most notebooks now will generally not include one, as they are rarely used when USB storage for transferring files is easier and shows/films/music can be easily accessed online.

Perhaps its my fault but I find the laptop quite slow and cumbersome. Im a little disappointed to be honest.

Good value laptop but it does have a few minor shortcomings. The keyboard feels very "plasticky" and does not have a very positive feel. Also there is no indication when caps lock is on. Overall though I am content with the Asus X540LA.
