ASUS X556 Review- Probably the Best Cheap Core i7 Laptop of 2017

This laptop has been heavily discounted. In the first half of 2017 it was selling for over £699 and it’s now available for under £540.

Quick Description: A well built beauty, 7th Generation Core i7.


  • Intel Core i7 – 2.7GHz
  • 8GB RAM
  • 1000 GB Hard Drive
  • 2.3 Kg
  • HDMI / Bluetooth  WiFi

I love this laptop, I’ve been using it for over three days for general office work and the best part of it is the display, it’s crisp and clear.

Typing on the ASUS X556 keyboard is what you would expect from any ASUS laptop, the keyboard has a nice solid feeling, not the type of keyboard you would normally get with a cheaper laptop where you press the button and you can feel the motherboard!

The fan is really quiet, which is a must for me as I hate distracting noises when I’ve working and fan noise is one of my pet peeves.

As far as gaming goes, it’s great for playing games that are a couple of years old, but if you want to play the latest and greatest shoot em up then you want to be spending a bit more money on something with a dedicated graphics card.

I would recommend this laptop for anyone who is looking for something cheap and fast, such as a college student.

I would not recommend this laptop to high end gamers.
