ASUS X551MA Notebook
Do More, With Less
Featuring a full-sized 15.6 inch HD display and the latest Intel dual core processor, the ASUS X551MA is the perfect everyday notebook with the performance to tackle any task you throw at it— whether you’re studying or just having fun. With crystal-clear sound and picture thanks to ASUS SonicMaster and Splendid Technology, the X551MA’s performance is notable.
Design that Fits You
The X551MA features an elegantly textured finish for a comfortable grip while preventing scratches and fingerprints. The matte screen frame and hidden hinge design complete the clean, seamless look and accent the display, which features Splendid video technology. ASUS has developed Splendid Technology to provide four preset modes — Normal, Theater, Vivid, and Manual — to optimize your viewing experience. The X551MA analyzes the image and fine-tunes it to your setting. Now you can study without fatiguing your eyes, scroll through photo albums with richer and more vibrant colors, and watch videos with crystal-clear sharpness and true-to-life visuals.
Providing a Smooth Computing Experience
Whether you’re studying or playing your favorite video game, the X551MA offers the ultimate mix of productivity and entertainment. The latest Intel Celeron N2830 Dual Core Processor lets you use multiple applications without having to worry about lag or killing your battery. Sporting the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II, the X551MA can lasts in standby mode for up to two weeks and wakes up in just 2 seconds. You’ll never wait through frustrating reboot times again or slow transfer speeds for that matter. The X551MA’s USB 3.0 port is up tp 10 times faster than USB 2.0, so you can move a 25GB Blu-ray-quality movie in just 70 seconds. And with built-in VGA and HDMI ports, you can easily connect the X551MA to an external monitor or TV for big-screen entertainment.
An Easy Touch
The X551MA features Smart Gesture technology for easy and smooth touchpad navigation. Pinch-zoom in on pictures, scroll up and down, and swipe quickly between pages without ever needing a mouse. It’s all intuitive, just like navigating your Smartphone or tablet. ASUS has matched the touchpad with a chiclet keyboard that’s been integrated into the body for a seamless, ergonomic design. And with IceCool technology, the X551MA’s palm rest—whose unique internal layout keeps heat-producing parts away from your hands—never rises above body temperature. You’ll be able to work or play for hours.
Hear the World Differently
ASUS’s team of sound engineers has crafted SonicMaster technology to produce high-quality audio output from built-in speakers. The X551MA’s sound chambers are larger — while maintaining the notebook’s thinness — allowing sound waves to fully expand outward. This results in reduced distortion and a deeper, richer bass. With AudioWizard technology, the sound is optimized with five different preset modes that fit your specific needs —whether you’re watching your favorite movie, streaming the latest album, or playing a video game. Now you can hear every word and make out every note even in a noisy setting.
