ASUS F556UA overview

  • 1Description

The 15.6" F556UA Notebook from Asus is ideal for users who need a system for tackling everyday tasks such as browsing the Internet, composing and editing documents, and watching or streaming online videos. Powered by a 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7-6500U Dual-Core processor and 8GB of DDR3 RAM, it can efficiently handle multiple programs at once as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When tasked with a heavier workload, the CPU can reach up to 3.1 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology. You can further increase this system's performance by replacing the preinstalled RAM with an 8GB module for a max RAM capacity of 12GB.

The notebook's 15.6" anti-glare display, driven by integrated Intel HD graphics, has a 1920 x 1080 resolution for crisp and clear Full HD content playback. By using its VGA and HDMI ports, you can connect additional displays for even more screen space to multitask. For storage, it's equipped with a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive. Should you run out of room, you can attach external storage solutions to its multiple USB ports, one of which has a reversible USB Type-C interface. The SD media card reader can also be used to hold more data as well as quickly transferring files from your mobile devices.

Access the Internet using 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi that allows you to connect to the 5 GHz band for faster speeds. By pairing compatible wireless peripherals using Bluetooth 4.0 technology, you can free up USB ports and save them for more important devices. Other integrated features include a SuperMulti DVD drive, a webcam, speakers, microphones, and a 3.5 mm microphone and headphone combo jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10.

Equipped with a built-in webcam, speakers, and microphones, the VivoBook is ready for video chatting. Use it for work, or to call friends and family.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
