ASUS X-Series Laptop

Model ASUS X556UQ
The Asus X-Series (Model X556UQ) is a thin and sleek laptop with a sturdy design and an elegant glossy blue chassis. It has minimal flex and has smooth and durable hinges. Bezels are slightly thick but they serve as solid protection. Screen is like new and I have taken care of it very well -there are no water marks, water damage, fingerprint marks or visible aesthetic tarnishes on the whole laptop. Laptop bottom cover is easy to remove for specs adjustments. Laptop is also very quiet with very good thermals.
I have used it to play classic games (Witcher 3, Path of Exile) with smooth graphics, and also used it for coding purposes, browser apps, creative work and binging on movies. Only had the laptop for a year and there is still 1.5 years of warranty (from ASUS) left. Laptop has served me very well.
