Reviews for the Asus R558UQ-DM539D
Source: Gadget Show
The Asus R558UQ is an ideal laptop for media consumption. The design is decent but its weight might be a let down for many. The display is also good for daily users and most of the the pre-installed apps are actually useful. If you want a laptop for everyday use with the most recent Intel processor, the R558UQ is definitely a good option. The battery life is decent as well.

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.
