Asus F555LA Graphic Design Laptop Review
(My New Design Laptop)
[Update 08/21/2015] They made a slightly newer version: 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.

Recommended Asus Graphic Design Laptops:

Asus ROG High Performance
Asus 13in Zenbook
Asus F555LA (My New Laptop)
Asus X555LA (Very Similar but Newer)
Asus N550JK

    I have the exact same laptop and I am studying graphic design. I also do light gaming on it like in Dota 2, League of Legends, Wow, Skyrim and much more! I have it for 2 years now and didnt face any problem! However I am looking for an ultrabook that I can carry everywhere and will last long and can do heavy tasks using adobe suite. Any suggestions?

    Its better to run CS6 on this instead of CC. CC is slightly laggy even though still usable. CS6 is fast on it though

    Is this still a good one to buy? Am a fashion design student so am on a budget. I need a laptop that will be good with illustrator and photoshop without lagging. I do play sims 4 occasionally so I need a laptop that can play that. Is this a good one?

    Would this, or something similar since it is sold out on Amazon, be useful for the Intuo 3D tablet? looking for something that will work with that application and maybe find some intro art and animation software for a budding artist/designers. Several recommendations were sold out, or discontinued, so any ideas for a student laptop 5-7 hundred range? And advice on intro art software, if the 3D takes awhile to pick up? Our students pick up fast, but don't want to frustrate the kids ! 🙂 thanks

    ASUS ZenBook UX305CA-EHM1 13.3" VS ASUS F556UA-AS54 15.6-inch Full-HD Laptop?
    Basic video/photo editing, browsing, etc. No gaming. Slight price difference in both. Which would you recommend most?

    h-e-l-p. Ive watched your videos but I am still in need of advice..can you recommend? my needs- I am NOT a gamer, I do the average  illustrator/photoshop/music editing, but not as a professional. what I need is good speakers/i7/8gigs ram/windows 10/1080 video quality/15" screen/ and last but not least, a laptop that does not feel and look plastic-ky, in other words a laptop with the basic brush allumininum type finish- is it far fetched to assume I can achieve this for under $800 ? your thoughts at your earliest please..cheers.

    I know you spoke about how the laptop is good for video editing aswell as graphic design, but can it really perform to a high enough standard you can create videos on premiere pro without it lagging etc? If not please let me know a good laptop for graphic design and video editing! Would really appreciate it:) willing to spend quite abit..
