Product Overview ASUS X Series: Classic Design. Expressive Colours
Designed for everyday multitasking and entertainment for smart and practical users, the ASUS X series notebooks redefine your expectations of all-rounder notebook. With a spun-circle finish and patterned palm rests, the X series adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to everyday computing. It houses a large touchpad with intuitive multi-point smart gesture input, multiple USB ports for fast data transfer and IceCool technology to keep your palm rests cool.

Designed for Productivity and Entertainment
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 on-board 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, and an RJ-45 Ethernet port.

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 millimetre 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 favourite 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 favourite 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 colour temperature correction to reproduce richer, deeper colours.

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 colour 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.

• Up and Down: Webpage Scrolling.
• Two-Finger Pinch: Zoom In / Out.
• 3 Fingers Swipe (Up/Down): To execute task view.
• 3 Fingers Swipe (Right/Left): To switch desktop.
• 3 Fingers Tap: To execute Cortana.

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.

15.6" ASUS X540LA-XX980T, HD, i3 5005U, 4GB DDR3L, 1TB HDD, Intel HD Graphics 5500, USB 3.1 Gen1 C, Win10 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This is a Notebook not a Laptop There is no DVD drive on this machine and therefore should be advertised as a Notebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the price For the £359 I paid for this it's actually an amazing little package. Build quality good (although feels a little 'plasticy'. You will hear people complain about the speed of the laptop - don't listen. The laptop unfortunately comes pre installed with McAfee - get rid of it and get something else. That causes the speed woes. Also there will be a lot of updates when you first get it. Get these done and then this will be a nippy wee laptop. It's great for the price. I am currently sitting in the pub planning a holiday on issues at all...although I am worried it may get a pint spilled on's my new wee pal.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and flimsy Straight out of the box this immediately inspired no confidence. The build quality is extremely poor so that every time I tapped on the touchpad or used the keyboard I had the disconcerting feeling that something was going to break. That combined with the fact that it makes such a racket while running that I wasn't convinced that everything was in place and screwed down. I'm currently using an old laptop with a failing harddrive because the failing harddrive on an old laptop inspires more confidence than this Asus does in its new state. Now I have to see how good scan's returns policy is ;-)
