F556UA is truly designed by the company to compete with the competitors at the same price range on the market. One thing that makes this one is different to the others is located on the specifications and design. It still remains high quality build with top notch performance, but in affordable choice. This is the main reason why this machine is becoming the popular choice in the 2017. If you have limited budget to spend for the holiday, then you should take look at closely.
The specification such as Intel I5 7th generation, full HD display and good looking design are few things that hard to find on this price range, but ASUS is successfully provides all of those things at the same package. It’s really worth to see it how good it is or really that worth to buy. You are going to find it soon because we will talk about it further here.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to see it closely and find the best and worst thing from it. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
The design itself has very minor changes at this model, but it still looks amazing as it feels sleek, slim, and attractive. People would be easily able to fit it into their backpack since the weight and thickness is not that much. The measurement for the entire body is measured at 0.5 x 12.6 x 8.6 inches and has total weight for 2.8 pounds. With 15 inch display, I think I should not have a problem with it since it still less than 2.8 pounds and means I do not have to worry on breaking of my back.
The laptop is built with metal construction that gives sturdy and solid system. The lid area is covered by dark blue finishing while the keyboard itself is covered in silver. The keyboard is nice to use around for many hours with its Chiclet style. The touchpad is also well positioned and responsive in tracking our finger movement. Sadly, it does not feature of backlit keyboard and you probably going to have some problems on typing in the dark condition.back to menu ↑
One of its biggest selling points is found on the display. It features of 15.6 inch screen with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Those combinations result of vivid and sharp images to the every moment. I have tries to stream full HD movies and it looks so good. The 1080 resolution for this price is still not common and this one is probably your best luck for looking good laptop with high quality display. The display is great although the touch support is nowhere to find. At least, the audio quality is something to proud of on this case. The sounds distortions are minimal and it could fill a small room with his sounds at the maximum volume.
As for connectivity, it’s very excellent in my opinion. They are not only giving us USB 3.0 ports, but also USB type-c ports. There are total three of them and you are not finding any problem on moving the data at the same time while connecting your mouse. USB C port is missing in many laptops and I am so happy to get it here. As for other connectivity, there are VGA ports, HDMI, and single card reader slot for external storage solution.

Performance And Battery Life
The performance is not a great matter since 8 GB RAM and Intel I5 processor are powerful hardware. Doing any multi-task work and some little gaming should be done easily without any issue. I tried to open multiple tabs on Chrome while streaming 1080p video at the same and the performance is still smooth as butter. The only big issue I hate here is the storage issue. It only comes with 256GB storage and I have to put my 128GB storage as for external storage. 256GB is not enough especially when you have many applications to install.
The battery life is mediocore where it could last for only 6 hours. 6 hours is actually low enough than most laptops I have tested, but once again cannot make big complain since they put so much budget on many sectors. Just stick with it if you are okay with this case.back to menu ↑
Those are information I know about it. The solid design and powerful performance are able to make people so interested on it. This laptop has gotten so many good reviews from the users and that is the reason I decide to make the article. If will be bad if miss the chance to have it. Everything is on you on deciding, so feel free to make any choice. I just hope the information is good enough. At last, see you again next time.
