Asus SonicMaster
Asus SonicMaster is a combination of hardware and software enhancement designed to provide users with higher quality audio by filtering noise and improving clarity.
Crafted Speaker Design
The speakers on this laptop features a round design to maximize the amount of space they take within the system to deliver better low frequency response, reduced noise, enhanced bass, and improved sound clarity.
Asus AudioWizard
Asus AudioWizard audio tuning software provides you with five presets to best fit your current application including: gaming, movies, music, recording, and speech.
Asus Splendid Technology
Asus Splendid Technology corrects the display's color temperature to deliver richer, deeper colors. It includes four modes: normal, eye care, manual, and vivid that you can switch between anytime you need. Eye Care Mode reduces blue light emissions, which can help reduce eye fatigue for long viewing periods.
Keyboard & Touchpad
This laptop features a chiclet keyboard with a 1.8 mm key travel and minimal key float for a solid typing feel. Its touchpad supports Asus Smart Gesture input, which lets you use common smartphone-like gestures to navigate with.
Asus IceCool Technology

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

    ASUS VivoBook 15 reviews

    15.6" VivoBook 15 X540UA Notebook is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of features for a great price Had a bit of a rocky start as I received a defective product or one that had gotten damaged in transit. Thankfully, ASUS customer service immediately confirmed it was a structural issue(the fan shouldn't sound like a jet engine) and B&H started the exchange process the day I contacted them. I now have a really nice, functional laptop. After my 7 year-old Toshiba gave out on me, I was looking for a similar laptop with updated features: something that will last a long time and be flexible enough to do multiple tasks. Pros: Thin frame but has a DVD/CD integrated Stylish, high-end look Processor (i7-8550) works fast Decent sound Quiet even with multiple tabs and programs running Nice, clear screen Number pad Cons: Had an issue with the audio driver not recognizing headphones but contacted ASUS and they sent instructions that fixed it. Number pad is a bit cramped for fast calculations Glossy black cover shows finger prints like it's a feature Not sure about: Battery life--I was coming from a laptop that had to be continuously plugged in so it's exciting to be unplugged to begin with but I guess I was expecting the charge to last a few hours longer than it did. Overall, it has everything I needed at a fantastic price and I've been impressed by ASUS customer service.
