Asus X540UB

Asus X540UB is a mid-size laptop that comes with entry-level discrete-class graphics card. It’s powered by one of Intel ultra-low voltage processors: i3-6006U, i3-7100U, i5-7200U or i7-7500U. In addition to the integrated graphics card, it’s also equipped with NVIDIA GeForce MX110 along with 2GB of GDDR5 graphics memory – that will be useful for slightly graphics demanding apps. However, it’s not powerful enough for high-end games. This laptop uses DDR4 2133MHz SDRAM with maximum capacity of 12GB. As for data storage, it comes with a 500GB or 1TB HDD, or a Solid State Drive with a capacity of 128GB or 256GB.

The display measures at 15.6-inch with a refresh rate of 60Hz and 45% NTSC color gamut. There are some models with HD (1366 x 768 pixels) display and some models with Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display. Asus Splendid technology makes it easy to adjust color mode. You can choose between 4 display modes which include Normal, Vivid, Eye Care or your own customizable Manual mode.

The biggest thing on the right side is a built-in optical drive. Ports on the Asus X540UB include a mic-in/headphone-out combo jack, an AC adapter plug, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port and an HDMI output port. Instead of a full-size card reader slot, it’s equipped a micro SD card slot. Keyboard on the device has chiclet keys with a key travel of 1.8mm. The touchpad supports gesture input.

Above the display, you’ll find an integrated webcam which can record videos up to VGA 480p. As for audio enhancement, as usual, Asus brings its SonicMaster audio technology. The Wi-Fi adapter is either 802.11ac or 802.11b/g/n. You can easily sync with other devices thanks to built-in Bluetooth v4.1.

Inside, it has a 3-cell 33 Whr battery. Asus X540UB is rather bulky even for a laptop with optical drive today. It has dimensions of 381 x 251 x 27.2 mm and weighs 1.90 kg including the battery. If you need a value for money laptop that can handle slightly graphics demanding apps pretty well and still integrates a built-in optical drive, you can consider this laptop.
