There are a number of advantages to getting a great laptop pre-order deal. First of all, you’re guaranteed to get one. If they run out of stock your laptop will still get one. Second, and probably most importantly, you’re locking in your price by getting it before it’s available to ship. Our most recent laptop pre-order deal jumped in price by $150 when the listing ended, for example. That means that this Asus pre-order laptop deal is a good one all around.
But those aren’t the only reasons to get this nice laptop from Asus early. You get some great specs at a fantastic price that’s considerably less than you would pay if you purchased a similarly configured model from some of the more popular brands. This one is a really nice, fast, beautiful, PC that offers serious “bang for the buck” as well.
Pre-Order the ASUS F555LA-AB31 Laptop at Amazon for just $349.00 with free shipping while you can.
The F555LA-AB31 is pretty. A surprisingly vivid, nicely detailed 15.6″ display offers 1920 x 1080 resolution (that’s considered Full HD if the marketing technology is confusing to you) that offers great visuals whether you’re gaming, watching videos, or looking at Grandma’s latest batch of cookies she took with her digital camera.
It’s also considerably faster than you would expect for the price. A Dual Core Intel i3-5010U (5th Generation Broadwell Version!) processor offers speed of 2.1GHZ from an Ultra Low Voltage, power saving brain.
A 500GB Hard Disk Drive (5400 RPM) is plenty of storage space for most of us, and of course you can pick up an SSD deal here on our site if you’re more interested in an inexpensive upgrade.
4GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM offers enough multitasking capability for most everyday uses.
The F555LA-AB31 offers fast connectivity to wireless networks, thanks to the latest 802.11ac standard.
Perhaps most importantly, this Asus laptop comes with Windows 10 pre-installed. This latest version of Microsoft’s operating system is getting very good reviews from experts and less technically expert users (like you and me, most likely) because of what it improved on, and what it happily left alone.
*After more than 50 reviews, this laptop carries a 4.1 out of 5 score from users. Of course, since the F555LA-AB31 in this iteration isn’t even shipping yet, those reviews are for the previous version with Windows 8 preloaded. We’ll keep you posted when they post the shipping date.*
