Elegant finish, lightweight design

Expansive audio, tuned by experts
A mixture of hardware, software, and tuning, SonicMaster was developed with the clear goal of giving you an exceptional audio quality on a notebook. A professional codec ensures precise sound performance; while an optimized 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 maximize 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.

To customize 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.

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.
Faster and easier connections with USB Type-C
The 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.
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 optimization 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.
