Extra-strict ASUSPRO reliability testing standards
Business and organizational users demand higher standards and greater reliability, and so all ASUSPRO series notebooks are strictly quality-tested to much higher industry standards then mainstream notebooks.

Anti-shock hard drive keeps data safe
ASUSPRO PU Essential series notebooks offer increased hard drive protection, with damage-absorbing sponge cushions designed to protect the hard disk against shocks and drops during transportation. Additionally, the hard disk features a complete protection mechanism consisting of G-sensor hardware and software that actively protects against imminent impacts in order to help keep data safe and secure. This system uses a 3D digital accelerometer with three levels of sensitivity: off, normal, and high. The latter is activated by default, and impact detection remains on at all times.
Wake-on-LAN (WOL) allows PCs to be turned on by a simple network message
ASUSPRO PU550 has a built-in hardware module on the motherboard that supports Wake-on-LAN (WOL). This allows a computer to be powered on or woken from sleep mode by a network message via LAN or WAN connections. This feature is invaluable for for remote PC maintenance and support.
Replaceable battery and smart power connect alert
The removable battery pack can be replaced with an optional extended-life battery, and adding an external battery case can even double battery life. It's also easy to replace old batteries when necessary. The PU Series also feature a power connector alert that notifies users if the power supply malfunctions or is disconnected, minimizing the risk of sudden shutdowns and interruptions.

The ASUSPRO PU series now features dual-band Wi-Fi and optional 4G LTE, so business users can stay connected at all times. Dual-band Wi-Fi works with both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks for maximum flexibility, while 4G LTE is up to 10 times faster than previous-generation mobile data technology.
USB 3.0 and USB charger+ offer ultra-fast transfer speeds and quick device charging
Notebooks ship with USB 3.0 as standard, delivering up to ten times the transfer speeds of USB 2.0. Exclusive ASUS USB charger+ software easily charges smartphones, media players, and other portable devices even when notebooks are powered off or in sleep/hibernate modes - in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
