Conclusion: ASUS F555LA-AB31 includes a 1 year international warranty which also covers Accidental Damage Protection including liquid spill, drop, fire surge and more and there is 24/7 decent tech support if and when you need it. Although it is a budget everyday things computer you will be able to do those things very fast and efficiently with a powerful and energy efficient 5th generation processor, faster 802.11ac wireless and USB 3.0 ports and the new Windows 10 that boots up and resumes from sleep mode faster. 4GB RAM is adequate for everyday use and 500GB storage space covers quite a lot of files although both may seem as average amounts for budget computers and 5400rpm HDD speed is slower than 7200rpm and SSD but remember this is a low cost computer and with the money you save it may be a good idea to replace it with a decent Solid State Drive for snappier performance. It has a high definition webcam with built-in microphone and will do the job for Skype chats. Battery life is not very long as it is only 2 cells and you will get 3 hours or so on average use. Asus brand has a great reputation among those that know about computers as Asus makes solid and decent quality PC’s that are easy on the eyes with nice design and they tend to cost a bit more than competitors and at this price level you’re getting a pretty good deal.
