Today we have one of the most attractive releases in 2016 if you are looking for a good Skylake laptop: read below the ASUS F556-AS54 review
The ASUS F556UA-AS54 has been released in the beginning of 2016 and it’s already one of the most appealing laptop models available, since it’s processor is part of the latest generation of Intel processors dubbed “Skylake” and on its price range, there is almost no competition for the F556UA with similar hardware.
To start from its design, its beautiful champagne chassis stands out on this model, and is definitely more interesting than the usual opaque dark gray/black that you will get in most mid-range laptops. The second positive impression this laptop gives is the fact that it comes with a 15.6″ Full HD display, which already entices one to discover its vocation for entertainment.
One of the most interesting aspects of this laptop is it’s Li-Polymer battery, which has a much longer life cycle than most laptops which have Li-ion batteries. The ASUS F556UA-AS54 is the ideal laptop for someone who prioritizes productivity and mobility and with its combination of solid state drive, low consumption Skylake processor and Li-Polymer battery technology, you can enjoy a very good battery life which is not often seen in 15 inch screen laptops.
ASUS F556UA-AS54 Pros
The highlights of this laptop are its i5-6200u dual core Skylake processor, which has a good performance with a lower energy consumption if compared to i5 processors from previous generations. It’s whole profile is something to consider if you like the ASUS UX303UA and the UX305UA but you want to save some money and still have a decent performance.
ASUS F556UA-AS54 Cons
Even if this laptop is ideal for its purposes of productivity and mobility and also has a 15.6″ Full HD screen, it’s not powerful enough to be considered a gaming laptop, so in that case, I’d recommend choosing a quad core laptop.
