ASUS F556UA-AS54 15.6-inch Full-HD Laptop

Asus Gold NB F556UA-AS54 is the new 2016 model 15.6 inch Full HD laptop with clean looks and some impressive specs like the powerful Skylake i5 processor with a Passmark benchmark score of more than 3900, a large Solid State Drive for speed rather than a slower mechanical drive, 802.1ac type more advanced and faster wireless, USB Type C port, much longer battery life, all of which help make this machine suitable for power users that want to run very demanding software and will cover a lot more than your simple everyday productivity and entertainment so you can get things done much faster, despite its budget price. So it comes with the dual core Intel i5-6200U processor at 2.3GHz speed with turbo boost function that moves the speed up to 2.8GHz as needed and hyper-threading for two cores to run four threads in parallel, large 8GBDDR3L SDRAM for great multitasking (it is not specified whether it is upgradable but will be more than adequate for most laptop users), 256GB SSD to boot up very fast and to open files and launch programs way faster- everything will feel snappier overall and pre-installed 64-bit Windows 10 operating system with new features that most people like.

Icicle gold Asus X556UA has a luxurious look and feel with its new chassis, metallic frame and a slim profile, weighs 6.5 pounds and measures 20.1 x 2.6 x 11.8 inches. Connectivity options are the DL DVDRW/CD-RW Optical Drive, 802.11ac wireless for faster and larger coverage even at longer range, Bluetooth 4.1, an HDMI output and a VGA output (D-sub connector) to connect to external monitors, Ethernet with RJ-45 connector, a USB 2.0 port, a USB 3.0 port, a USB Type C port, a 3-in-1 Media Card Reader and a VGA webcam installed into the top bezel. 15.6 inch matte anti-glare non-touch FHD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution for very sharp and clear images and comfy viewing both indoors and outdoors and includes unique features like Bluelight Filter to decrease blue light by 33% in Asus Eye Care mode to help you avoid eye fatigue and other complications, and Splendid Technology with four visual modes to correct color temperature for deeper and richer colors. Integrated Intel HD 520 graphics card with shared memory will offer OK performance in less demanding games- performance similar to NVIDIA GeForce 820M so you can still play the latest games but at lower settings and resolutions.

ASUS SonicMaster offers louder volumes and deeper bass- better, clearer and more powerful audio output through the larger stereo speakers. Combination of the ultra low voltage i5-6200U processor with a Thermal Design Power of 15 watts and the 38WHr lithium polymer battery with up to 700 charge cycles equal to a comfortable 5-6 hours on average use on a single charge. Screen does not support touch functionality, webcam is VGA and not high definition and there is no dedicated graphics card here for advanced gaming but very smooth performance otherwise for whatever you’re doing on the computer other than playing the latest and the most demanding games and with all things considered, you’re getting a very good deal with this new Asus and it is certainly worth checking out. Warranty included by the Taiwanese Asus is one year for parts and labor, as well as Accidental Damage Protection for accidental liquid spilling, drop, fire surge and more plus the 30 days Zero Bright Dot Guarantee- the most comprehensive coverage out there and free 24/ technical support.
