Entertainment laptops with unparalleled quad-speaker sound and a striking IPS display
Elegant aluminum and slim modern look
Meticulously treated materials endow the N550LF laptop with stunning looks and great strength, using aluminum with hairline finishing and an illuminated ASUS logo. A ripple-effect speaker mesh projects artistic beauty and echoes sound excellence, showcasing appealing aesthetics and better audio.
IPS panels deliver living color and wide-angle sights
The N550LF laptop arrives with ultra-crisp IPS screens that enhance color definition, brightness, and contrast. It resists reflections using matte coating, which also repels fingerprints.
In addition to color accuracy and lifelike visuals, the N550LF laptop panels ensure wider viewing angles so you can share screens with family, friends, or colleagues. The 15.6” N550 delivers 178-degree enjoyment, with colors and clarity remaining consistent from nearly any direction.
SonicMaster Premium with quad-speaker array
ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, co-developed by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®, brings you the best laptop sound.
The new N550LF laptop is the first with a quad-speaker array. This generates spacious and cinematic-quality surround. And for deep bass, you get the bundled external SonicMaster subwoofer, which pumps out thumping low notes.
Introducing quad-speaker array surround sound
Four powerful speakers create immersive sound, tuned by the ASUS Golden Ear team. The quad-speaker array shapes sound and ensures best-reproduction and delivery. Beamforming and crosstalk cancellation join Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) technology to clear up audio, remove interference, and increase enjoyment, whether using the speaker array or headphones. Sound positioning is augmented for richer and more convincing surround, especially in movie watching, where you dive into truly cinematic audio.
MaxxAudio Master professional audio tuning
The N550LF laptop features sound personalization with MaxxAudio Master by Waves, recipient of a 2011 Technical GRAMMY Award®.
MaxxAudio Master provides precision tuning. Four-way dynamic control, ten-band EQ with multiple filters, psycho-acoustic low frequency extension, and multi-dimensional spatial enhancement offer richly personal sound. Headphones or home theater, the N550LF's audio is a centerpiece of multimedia.

Powerful 4th generation Intel® Core™ i5/i7 processors accelerate everything you do, including silky-smooth multitasking. For visuals, the N Series has discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics fit for gaming, meaning complete movie-watching fidelity and the newest games in high DirectX® 11 detail.
