Asus F555LA Graphic Design Laptop Review

Asus F555LA Graphic Design Laptop Review
(My New Design Laptop) http://amzn.to/1bO0PFI
[Update 08/21/2015] They made a slightly newer version: http://amzn.to/1NK8Lpi ASUS X555LA-MS51

You can get this same laptop for around $570 with 8GB of Ram 1TB of HDD and Intel 4400HD Graphics and the 5th Gen i5 Processor.

This is perfect on a budget for Graphic Design Work and YouTube Video Editing! This has been able to handle the Adobe Apps without being sluggish and it will only get better with Windows 10.

So this doesn’t feel that much heavier overall than the Macbook Pro, it’s also super thin for a Windows Laptop and takes advantage of a slim DVD drive.

The ice cooling technology means that it stays cool both when my hands are resting on the laptop while working and in my lap. It’s also one of the most quiet laptops I’ve used.

Asus F555LA (My New Laptop) http://amzn.to/1bO0PFI
