The Asus R558UQ looks good on paper, but in real world terms this isn’t the laptop to buy. While the R558 does allow casual gaming, you’ll get a much better display with the Lenovo Ideapad 510 and with the same hardware, plus double the RAM. We recommend spending a bit more and buying that device.


Specifications of our test machine:
Display: 15.6-inch display, 1920 x 1080p
CPU: Intel Core i5-7200U
Storage: 1TB HDD 5400RPM
Battery: 38 watt-hour
Graphics: Nvidia GTX940MX with 2GB VRAM

A thick black body, made of plastic all over and a signature Asus-like finish, this laptop is meant for the regular business user who wants a bit of everything. It is neither thin, nor light, and it isn’t meant to be.


I’m officially spoiled by ultrabooks. The Asus R558UQ, to me, seems to be a difficult laptop to manage. However, in the market at large, such laptops are actually quite important. That said, I wouldn’t recommend buying this as a gaming laptop, since it has only 4GB RAM. Moreover, its hard drive gets in the way of really smooth usage.
