A resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, means rich graphics to shoot Zombies or cross the galaxy in detail

Your Asus's i5-7300HQ processor means whilst your thumbs may struggle with Call of Duty or Doom your will not. 

The 8 GB RAM combines nicely with the GPU on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 which hits a 3DMark benchmark score of 6036.5, and the 4 cores CPU hit a Passmark benchmark of 6862

You can have the dark arcade experience without tapping blindly thanks to the built in back-lit keyboard. 

It's good for academic research

Music and Audio

Developing your own tunes and mixes is important to you, so we've recommended a laptop that has got an advanced audio system on-board with HD sound capabilities.

The presence of a 4 cores core process will help speed up music format conversions or codec-based compression.

Your Asus's 8 GB RAM will ensure large sheets and accounts wont undermine performance

The numeric keypad keyboard really takes the strain out when entering data.

Spreadsheets, presentations and documents, don't need much, but your i5-7300HQ processor and 8 GB RAM ensures even image laden files won't leave you watching the 'spinning wheel'!

The ROG FX553 makes surfing the web easy thanks to a reasonable hardware specification and fast, reliable b/g/n WiFi connectivity.
