Stay comfortable with IceCool technology…..The X501 benefits from exclusive ASUS engineering. Creating a unique internal layout, heat is kept away from palm rests and from users. Always below body temperature, palm rests feel cool to the touch, and are therefore more comfortable to use even during long sessions.
Smartphone-like responsiveness with instant on…..only Asus notebooks offer true 2-second instant on resume from sleep or hibernate, cutting out long reboot times and putting you back to work or enjoyment right where you left off. Thanks to Asus Super Hybrid Engine II technology, you also get up to 14 days of standby, with auto data backup should battery charge levels drop to 5% or less.
Work and enjoy faster with USB 3.0…..now standard on X series notebooks, USB 3.0 transfers data at up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, leading to quicker backups and access. When even a 25 Gb High Definition movie file takes just 70 seconds to transfer, you can really say goodbye to long-wait frustrations.
