      Top features:

      - Latest generation processor with 8 GB RAM for effortless multi-tasking

      - High level gaming with NVIDIA's GTX 1050 graphics including 4 GB of V RAM

      - Spacious storage with 1 TB of storage and 128 GB SSD

      The ASUS Republic of Gaming FX553 15.6" Gaming Laptop is part of our Gaming range, which features the most powerful PCs available today. It has superior graphics and processing performance to suit the most demanding gamer.

      Latest generation processor

      Powered by a 7th generation Intel® Core™ i5 core processor, the ASUS FX553 delivers excellent performance for everything you do. Supported by 8 GB RAM, the FX553 is able to handle multi-tasking so that you won't feel restricted whether you're working or gaming.

      High level gaming

      Designed to play the next generation of action and RPG games, the GTX 1050 is 41% faster than a GTX 960 with 4 GB of V RAM. Powered by NVIDIA's advanced Pascal architecture, you'll be able to get into faster and more immersive gaming experiences with ultra-smooth imagery on all the latest titles.

      Spacious storage

      The FX553 has a 1 TB storage drive, offering plenty of space to save all your files, games and photos. The 1 TB HDD is partnered with 128 GB SSD, which is able to boot programs and transfer files much faster than standard storage – perfect for installing big games that will load in moments.

      Play games, watch videos and work on documents in great quality using the Full HD screen, which has a wide viewing angle so no matter where you're sitting the image looks great. The screen has a matte finish too, to reduce any reflections or glare so nothing distracts you from the game.

      Microsoft Office & internet security

      This laptop doesn't come with a full version of Microsoft Office or Internet Security. But don't worry, you'll find great savings on software with the bundles available on the ‘Top Deals' tab on this page.

      - Design is awesome.

      - Cool-looking keyboard with customisable lighting.

      - Runs VR on my Oculus Rift smoothly with little, if any, lag.

      - Can download an app on your phone to monitor system health and change keyboard lighting.

      - Sturdy enough to take a couple of punches when you accidentally whack it while in VR (still not advisable to do so however!)
      - Battery life isn't up to much, but then it's not really designed for that, so it doesn't bother me.

      - Once you have plugged in a Rift and the two sensors, you've run out of standard USB ports. I ended up buying a USB-C to USB adapter to plug in my xBox controller.

      Very good specs for a budget gaming laptop! Clear screen, not loud, runs cool even under stress.
      Bulky but carries itself well.
