If you have been following laptop world lately, ASUS is the most beloved brand for laptops after Apple. This laptop is the ASUS F555LA-AH51 model. A really good machine for a rare deal, an i5-4210U CPU, 1TB hard drive and 8 gigs of RAM, for about 500 bucks.
I was so lucky, got it at best deal here.
The 1336×768 resolution screen has good color and crisp picture. This ASUS F555LA-AH51 is fast for normal use, but there is a slight disappointment.
Although other specs are great, it is definitely not a gaming machine as dedicated GPU or dedicated video card are just not found with this laptop. If gaming is your main goal for a laptop, I suggest you to check gaming laptop because it has dedicated graphics card.
You will get the laptop, charger, warranty card and user manual inside the box.
Boots up time. It will show the desktop in about 17-24 seconds.
Performance. I worked with Ms Word, downloading files and watching YouTube videos while downloading, There was no slow down from these opened programs which all were running at once.

* The Intel Core i5-4210U CPU is a 64-bit processor which is 1.7GHz. For this processor this has turbo boost technology to 2.7GHz when needed. Intel i5 powered laptop like this machine is faster than pother laptops that have i3 and Intel Celeron CPUs.
