SonicMaster technology and Asus AudioWizard combine to deliver high fidelity audio, allowing you to hear the nuances in every track. SonicMaster technology, developed in conjunction with Bang & Olufsen, balances sound, reduces electronic noise, eliminates distortion and boosts performance.
Powered by Super Hybrid Engine II Technology, Asus Instant On allows the X550CC to resume in under 2 seconds and stay in standby for up to 5 days. It also saves any data automatically should the battery life fall below 5%, so you don’t have to worry about losing your work.
The extra-wide dust repellent island-style keys on the chiclet keyboard combined with the palm rest makes for comfortable and accurate typing sessions for improved productivity and interaction.
The X550CA comes equipped with a DVD SuperMulti drive, allowing you to play CDs and DVDs and even copy information onto blank discs.

VGA and HDMI give you options to output your display onto a bigger screen, such as a TV, monitor or projector to make it easier to share with others.
WiFi and a built-in Ethernet connection makes it easy to connect to the internet, with Wi-Fi giving you a wireless option, while the Ethernet connection means you can plug into a router for a faster, more stable connection.
