The latest 4th gen Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M discrete graphics provides all the power you need for everyday tasks ? from web browsing and video conferencing to gaming and design work.

Modern and Timeless
The clean, modern design features a finish of subtle concentric circles, with a gray, diamond-textured palm rest. It feels comfortable in your hands, so you can grab it on the go. And there?s no need to worry about smudges, since the entire body is fingerprint-resistant. With a 1280 x 720 HD camera, the only thing that matches the beautiful design is the clarity of the video it delivers. Now you can Skype with friends or have a video conference with coworkers. The camera?s high-sensitivity sensor adjusts accordingly with the lighting of the surrounding environment, providing a smoother video stream even in dark conditions.
Instant and Long-Lasting
Featuring a 4th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 700 series graphics, the X550LB has performance power to burn. So you can simultaneously open several applications without experiencing lag. With the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II, the X550LB can last in standby mode for two weeks then wake up in two seconds, for instant access on the go. And don?t worry about losing data: All content is automatically saved when battery life falls under 5%. Plus, the USB 3.0 port ? 10 times faster than USB 2.0 ? lets you transfer photos, music and movies in a fraction of the time.
Precision Has Never Been Easier
The SmartGesture touchpad was designed to fully utilize Windows 8. Pinch-zoom in on pictures, drag and drop items, and effortlessly scroll and swipe through multiples pages. It?s all intuitive, just like the gestures on your smartphone. The seamless, one-piece keyboard is more ergonomic and keeps you typo-free. With IceCool Technology integrated into the body, the X550LB has a unique internal layout that keeps heat-producing parts away from your hands. The palm rest never rises above body temperature. So your palms will be cool and comfortable even after hours of use.
A Better View of the World
ASUS?s color management technology enhances images with richer and deeper colors. The X550LB auto-adjusts images to present more accurate colors, so pictures will look more like the real thing. With Splendid Technology, you can cater the display screen to whatever you?re doing: watch a movie in Theater Mode for more accurate skin tones or enhance color, contrast, and sharpness in Vivid Mode for a picture that pops.
Bringing Sound to Life with ASUS SonicMaster
The X550LB comes stocked with SonicMaster technology for clear, distinct vocals and a deeper, richer bass. With a wider range ? one full octave lower than industry standard ? and a large speaker, you?ll experience true-to-life surround sound. Audio Wizard lets you optimizes your experience with 6 pre-set modes. Each is tailored to enhance the sound of whatever you?re doing ? whether you?re streaming your favorite album, watching the latest movie or playing the hottest game. It sounds so good you?ll forget you?re on a laptop.
