Featuring a full-sized 15.6 inch HD display and the latest Intel dual core processor, the ASUS D550MAV 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 only thing more impressive than the D550MAV’s performance is its price tag.
The D550MAV 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 4 preset modes – Normal, Theater, Vivid and Manual – to optimize your viewing experience. The D550MAV 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 pop your favorite DVD or video game into the optical drive and see crystal clear sharpness and true-to-life visuals.
Whether you’re studying or playing your favorite video game, the D550MAV offers the ultimate mix of productivity and entertainment. The latest Intel Bay Trail-M 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 D550MAV can lasts in standby mode for up to two weeks and wakes up in just 2 seconds (7 seconds faster than industry standard). You’ll never wait through frustrating reboot times again – or slow transfer speeds for that matter. The D550MAV’s USB 3.0 port is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 so you can move a 25GB Blu-ray-quality move is just 70 seconds. And with built-in VGA and HDMI ports, you can easily connect the D550MAV to an external monitor or TV for big-screen entertainment.
The D550MAV features Smart Gesture technology for easy and smooth 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. With a touchpad that’s 47% larger than other brands, maneuvering your applications has never been easier or more responsive. 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 D550MAV’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.
ASUS’s team of sound engineers has crafted SonicMaster technology to produce unparalleled audio from built-in speakers. The D550MAV’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.
