Today we are going to look at the Asus VivoBook K556UQ-DM1023T which is a standard sized laptop that comes with a little added ability for those that like to game as well with its dedicated graphics card. The 15.6 inch display will be a nice touch for many who prefer a full sized laptop and willing to give up a bit of mobility to enjoy the increased display area. Below we will review some of the benefits and downsides to this model and see if it might be the right choice for you.
Processor: Intel Core i5
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 256 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
As we mentioned above the Asus VivoBook K556UQ-DM1023T comes with a full sized screen at 15.6 inches. This display is full HD and can provide you a great viewing experience no matter if you are gaming, watching a movie or just being productive and trying to get some work done.
Most mid-range laptops come with what is called an integrated graphics card which shares the system memory instead of providing its own dedicated memory. When it comes to graphic intensive tasks such as gaming these don’t tend to hold up very well so instead Asus has included the Nvidia GeForce GT940MX graphics card which has 2 GB of dedicated memory giving it the ability to handle intensive graphics much better than most of the competition.
At 2.3 KG it may not be as mobile friendly as smaller and more compact models but isn’t a big burden to take on the go either. It seems to be a great balance between having a display that is very useful and being able to work or play on the go.
The limited amount of USB ports on the Asus VivoBook K556UQ-DM1023T may be a concern for those that plug multiple devices into their laptops at once. You will only find two ports with just one of them running on the newer and faster USB 3.0 technology.
It might not be an extremely heavy device but one of the limitations to being a great mobile option is its limited battery life. At just up to 6 hours on a single charge getting the full day in without needing to re-charge is a near impossible task.
When considering the affordability of the Asus VivoBook K556UQ-DM1023T it does give you a great experience for the price, It may not have cutting edge technology but plenty of performance and features for the average user.
